Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Grand Caravan

  • 20,051 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. I purchased the vehicle in June 2008 with 16, xxx miles on it. I have put less than 4,000 miles on the vehicle. 1) the vehicle first failed to start in the first part of July, called Chrysler to come for a boost as it appear battery had gone out, when service arrived in parking lot at work, the vehicle started. I drove the vehicle to gator Chrysler in melbourne, they could not find anything wrong with the vehicle. 2) vehicle would not start (believe the date was July 30th). Vehicle was taken to gator Chrysler again but had error codes they could follow. The vehicle would not start again until they put in a watch spring which they were certain that the vehicle was fixed. 3) vehicle was being driven down a dark road at approximately 9pm when vehicle completely lost all power and shut the engine off and all electrical without any warning and would not restart. Manager of service at gator would not contact the Chrysler representative as he believes all rights were lost as I had purchased a used vehicle. The fact that I purchased a used vehicle does not constitute it being ok for the entire vehicle to shut-down without warning and risk the loss of lives. I cannot believe this to be an isolated case with just this van and if so, shouldn't it then fall under the lemon law.

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan shuts down. The consumer stated at random times, the dashboard lights would illuminate, indicating an engine malfunction. Soon after, the vehicle would cut off.
