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.

I was driving to go pick up my wife and I was on a back two lane road when my van just shut off. I put it in neutral and it took a couple of times to restart but eventually did. Since then my vehicle has had a few issues with starting. I have had a mechanic look at it but he sees nothing wrong. It also happened to my wife while traveling down the road. She was at a traffic light when it just turned green. She put her foot on the accelerator and it stopped in heavy traffic. She was with my youngest son and he was scared to death. We keep having to have road side assistance to come jump start it. Today January 17, 2015 the man come out to jump start it and it is completely dead. We used to hear this sound like air coming from the rear driver side tire but nothing now. He said to me it may be a fuel pump.

Bought this used van in November and had problems with it from the time we bought it. Thought it was a tcim failure Dodge repair shop said, no, the VIN number was not one that was affected by tcim failure. Had the fuel pump replaced by another shop. Took it home and would not start again the next day. The shop towed it back and found that it is the tcim causing the fuel pump failure. Waiting to see what will be the additional cost, besides the $600 + to change the fuel pump.

Grand Caravan

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.
