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

  • 34,914 miles


Bought vehicle on 12-14-2010(used from a car dealer) vehicle was suppose to have been inspected(72 point check) this van had 34,916 miles on it. Dealer did recalls and warranty work. We complained about the tire "light" going on & off. Was advised that nothing was wrong with the monitor, that the tires just needed a little air for the higher altitude. They over filled tires. Tire light came on again. This time we were advise, by a tire dealer, that the valves(monitors) were cracked & leaking air. Also the engine light came on and stayed on until we got to the dealer, he said to turn off the motor and restart the engine. This time it went off. After reading the complaints about engine lights, we are scared that the dealers are again lying to us. We do not want to end up with the vehicle just stopping on us on the highway, infront of an 18 wheeler! this engine light problem has occurred to others and their transmission just quit. We believe that these dealers, are in denial. Why did the dealer tell my husband just to turn off the vehicle without using a code to find out what the problem is? we have had the vehicle in 2 times about the 'low tire" light & each time they just blew it off as needing air! it was an independent tire person who actually examined the tire to find the cracked valve-he did not have any thing to gain, as the valve stem was returned again to the dealer. When we looked back at the repair tickets (2) we noticed that our reporting of the tire light being on was not even on either of the repair tickets! btw: Our 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 truck has the irregular & accelerated idle as well as the "out of no where" acceleration, which we found many complaints on the internet. We copied dozens of these complaints off the internet, as well as their solutions/fixes and gave the stack of paperwork to the dealer.(we had been back to the dealers dozens of times previously) as the problem kept coming back. The internet repairs it worked. We hope these can be 2.
