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 8-cyl

  • 159,000 miles
I recently purchased a 2008 Dodge Caravan. I needed an inspection sticker and come to find out the horn wouldn't blow. Had a mechanic look at it and he said the coil in the steering was bad which also operates the vehicles driver airbag. It will not deploy if I were to be in a crash. I would think this should be a recall being that the mechanic said it is common. This is pricy to fix. After the part and labor it will cost me $650!..updated 07-08-15 updated 9/15/2015
