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.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #5

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 69,476 miles


While driving our 2009 Grand Caravan to work, there was a loud clunk in the rear of the vehicle and the vehicle swerved to the left across the center line and off the left side of the road. Thankfully there was nothing coming the other way. I parked the car in a lot and called my husband. When he arrived, it was discovered that the rear axle had broke in two pieces. This vehicle has always been well maintained and has less than 70,000 miles on it. We have not taken it in for repairs yet but im sure that this safety item will be on our dime and not Dodge.

While on a 500 mile trip the right front wheel bearing overheated and caused wheel to seize up on the highway. Had to have vehicle repaired out of town and incurred motel expenses for the night of the break down.

On one occasion, my vehicle swerved without warning into the oncoming traffic lane, like being blown by a strong gust of wind. On another occasion, the vehicle spontaneously started pulling and my wife had to fight it to get it to pull safely to the shoulder. When I arrived I tried it and experienced the same problem. The dealer diagnosed it as a faulty clockspring & steering wheel position sensor. The electronic stability program had improperly sensed the steering wheel position and had been trying to compensate. While replacement of the said parts resolved the problem, my family was lucky to have avoided a serious accident when the vehicle swerved into the oncoming traffic lane.
