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.

2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

Grand Caravan

  • miles


Purchased this vehicle in Sept 2013, immediately the second row, passenger-side seatbealt does not propel back. The seller of the vehicle, directed me to a mechanic to repair it but shortly after it occured again. Less than a year after purchase, the fuse/motor on the driver's seat just stopped and the seat is unable to be adjusted. Last week, went for repairs to front wheel bearing (tire popped directly off) and was advised the rear wheel bearing will also need to be replaced. Cannot tell if any of these are normal wear and tear or malfunctions with the vehicle, especially since I have only had it for 2 years.

On 2 occasions my daughter was sitting in the middle row passenger side seat, while going to recline the seat the head rest flipped up and hit her in the head as it would when attempting to fold the seat to put in floor(stow and go seats).

On several occasions, the latest being today, the seats have attacked passengers by springing forward in a very unsavory manner. On the rear bench seat, the headrest when in locked mode will release with a fury only known to the most vicious of creation smashing into the head of the guest. The middle seat has an equally nasty vertical effect that almost broke my tween's nose today as she was adjusting the seat. Dodge needs to look at the spring action on all of the seat components and recall all vehicles with stow and go seats and lesson the strength of the seat reclining springs.
