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 6-cyl

  • 51,506 miles
2008 Grand Caravan SXT (equipped with a TPMS air sensors) - with the change of weather, the low tire pressure indicator light went on. While checking the air pressure of the tires, two (of four) of the valve stem caps would not loosen. When attempting to remove one of the stuck valve stem caps, the valve stem snapped off - instantly releasing all the air in the affected tire. The local Dodge dealership was contacted, parts ordered, and an appointment was made. They are aware of the recurrent problem with these aluminum valve stems/sensors. This is the second time for a valve stem to break on this vehicle. (the last one occurred at 43,097 miles on 11/7/10.) there is a safety concern with these failed components. We have noticed on the internet forums that this is a common occurrence and should be addressed by Dodge/Chrysler as a serious accident could result.

The tire valve stem tips (the end metal part), which are integral with the TPMS, break off leading to a sudden and complete loss of air from the tire. This has happened twice on two different tires on our 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. Once at about 25K and the second time at 33K. The Dodge dealership says this is a common occurrence but will not cover it under warranty.

Grand Caravan

  • 32,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated that two valve stems have failed; the shaft of the valve stem broke off. The first time, he was alerted by a tire shop when he was having tires installed. In February 2010, when he checked the tire pressure, a valve stem popped off and the passenger front tire became flat within minutes. He was unsure of what tire the first stem came off of. The tire shop informed him that the valve stem failure may have been due to corrosion. After the latest failure, he took the vehicle to another tire shop and it was reiterated that the valve stems were corroded. The contact had the two valve stems replaced. He called the dealer and manufacturer who stated that since the repair was made that they could not assist help because they could not see the failure. He was also told that they could not repair the other two stems because they had not failed at that point. The current mileage was approximately 35,000. The failure mileage was approximately 32,000.
