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

  • 62,000 miles
Last year wife was driving vehicle on highway during vacation. Power was lost and vehicle would not steer or break. Vehicle was difficult to restart as ignition turned over then shut off again. Very fortunate there was no accident. This has since recurred twice, once while coming to a stop at a red light, and another while existing a parking garage. Also, vehicle constantly needs to be started twice, does not always stay powered up after initial ignition. Did not think of filing a NHTSA complaint at the time, but with the acknowledgement of ignition problems from Chrysler, wanted to make sure I got this logged.
