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.

The contact owns a 2008 doge Caravan. The contact stated that when attempting to accelerate, the accelerator pedal would sporadically become stuck in the open throttle position. In order to dislodge the accelerator pedal, he would shift into neutral and as the speed would reduce to 40 mph, the accelerator pedal would release. The manufacturer advised taking the vehicle to the dealer to be diagnosed. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 40,000 and the current mileage was 42,000. Updated 08/13/10. The consumer stated the van has been fixed. Updated 08/23/10

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 645 miles
Car was put into drive, as I started to drive, I noticed the engine racing. I looked down and saw it was in first gear. I shifted to neutral and the engine raced, I engaged the transmission again and it slammed into drive and spun the wheels for a moment then drove normally. It has been accelerating while in drive on its own also.
