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.

My 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan has the 'check airbag' light on after only 60,000 miles. From searching online, Dodge has recalled this exact problem (spring in steering column) previously. I feel that there is still a defect in their manufacturing and this should be covered under recall. I've never heard anyone saying that had airbag problems with a vehicle except Dodge!!!! this is the 3rd major problem with this new vehicle and I'm afraid to keep putting money into what could turn out to be a lemon!

2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SE airbag light stays on took it to Dodge service dealer and they seed it was the airbag computer and the price was $375 plus $400 to remove the center console and replace it. Its only 2years old and has 45,000 miles so their warranty does not cover it because their warranty is only 36,000 miles so they said that if I am in a accident the airbags wont deployed unless I have them changing the "airbag computer for $775 plus tax and extras that might com up I think thats B.S. giving that its only 2 years old...this Grand Caravan hase bin nothing but problems...

I was going on a highway at approximately 50 mph and a truck pulled out in front of me. I had about 2 seconds to hit my brakes and hit the van head on into the side of his truck. None of my airbags deployed and the front passenger seat belt didn't lock down. My teenage daughter almost hit her head on the dash. The towtruck driver and others have said that my airbags should have deployed. It is very disturbing to know they didn't. I am very disappointed in this van.

I am writing about what I feel was a severe airbag malfunction. I was in a crash that was high enough impact to total my rental vehicle...smash the front windshield, and turn the front end of the vehicle into an accordion; moreover, the accident could have ended my life. I escaped with torn muscles in my shoulders, hairline cracks in my front teeth and a broken collar bone. As the driver, I am highly suspicious about the airbags not deploying in such a high impact incident. The incident occurred when a motorist ran a redlight and ran into the front drivers side of my vehicle. Where all the other motorist in the accident had airbags deploy, the police and emergency crews were amazed that the vehicle did not respond differently in the accident.
