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.

While my wife was traveling in a highway at approximately 50 mph the spare wheel suspender cable broke. That caused a loud noise and a very rough ride because the spare wheel was stuck under the minivan. After dragging the spare wheel and the steel tray that support it under the minivan for approximately 200 meters, the wheel and tray eventually got loose and ended up in the middle of the highway. Incredibly as it may sound there were no other vehicles in the highway in same direction as my wife at that time and she was able to back up the minivan to a safe place, walk to the middle of the highway pick up the wheel and save it inside the minivan. Afterwards my wives continued to her destination were she parked on a very uneven street. At that moment a plastic protective cover fell off from where the spare tire used to be under the minivan. When I inspected the minivan I could not find any trace of the steel cable that suspends the wheel under the minivan. Upon turning bolt that is used to lower the spare tire the broken cable showed up under the minivan. I would suspect that the steel cable broke at the end terminal because that exact failure mode had already occurred with the parking brake steel cable and I had to replace it. The plastic cover that had fallen was part of the assembly were the spare tire is sandwiched between that cover and a metal tray. The spare tire was in the steel carrier and never got loose even when it was stuck under the minivan.

I was pulling into a parking spot at sam's club in woodbury, mn. As I was pulling in, my van rapidly accelerated and hit the car parked across from me head on. It felt as if I was riding a bumper car and I was whipped around a corner. My vehicle suffered damages at approximately $2600--so it wasn't just a simple bump. I am reasonably certain that this was not user error on my part. The brakes were repaired approximately 2 weeks before the accident.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
I was driving on the highway at 60 mph, hit a large (approx 6 feet X 4 feet X 4 feet) wooden shipping crate. The crate exploded, and a board became lodged in the tire well and engine compartment. I also lost power the vehicle - the wrecker driver advised that the board appeared to have disconnected the computer wires. The crate hit on the front driver fender. The airbags did not deploy. I would think hitting something the size of the front end of a car at 60 mph should set off the air bags.
