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

We were walking up to our vehicle and used the keychain remote to open the rear liftgate. It went all the way open and my wife walked underneath it to put some things in the car. After it went all the way open, it stayed there for a couple of seconds and then all of a sudden came down hard and slammed my wife in the head. She sustained a sore neck and a headache that has since gotten worse. I tried operating the liftgate again while we were clear and it did the same thing. It went all the way open, paused for 2 seconds, and then slammed down hard about a foot before it went back closed in a normal fashion. It has since been repaired by the dealer. They had to replace the 2 hydraulic cylinders for the rear liftgate. However, my wife is still experiencing neck pain.
