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.

2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

Grand Caravan

  • 41,520 miles


While opening the back door of the minivan, I noticed a hissing sound coming from the side of the vehicle. My wife and son both noticed it a few minutes prior to me opening the door. About 15 seconds after I had opened it, I heard a loud bang and the entire gas strut exploded at the base and sent broken pieces flying about 15 ft into the driveway. I was holding the door at the time and the full weight obviously was then upon me. Upon researching this a bit I noticed that several major car manufacturers had issued recalls but apparently Dodge has not yet. Well I'm reporting that our 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan has the same issue and has the stabilus gas struts. I honestly hope no one gets injured and thankful that we were lucky in this instance. Had it been my wife not holding the door and my son standing right there, things could have gone down quite differently.
