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

problem #1

Mar 182011

Grand Caravan

  • 200 miles


The contact owns a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated that while driving 65 mph the vehicle began to down shift and lunge forward. When the accelerator pedal was engaged the vehicle currently does not increase in speed. The contact had to quickly react because of the traffic behind the vehicle and drive onto the emergency lane and shut to the vehicle off. The contact restarted the vehicle and it began to function normally. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who was unable to diagnosed the failure. Immediately after the contact drove away from the dealer the failure recurred. The contact drove onto the emergency lane over to the side of the road and the check engine light came on. The contact had the vehicle towed to a dealer. The dealer ran a diagnostic test and a faulty transmission control module is what's causing the vehicle to suddenly down shift and jerk. The failure mileage was 200.
