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.

problem #1

Jul 042012

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 900 miles
Driver and passenger doors misaligned to the point that the gaps outward made the door appear ajar, water enters excessively around frame, however does not enter inside the van. The first attempt on 7/5/2012 by the dealer was to adjust the strike plate which caused the bottom of the doors to be excessively inward. I have been scheduled to have all 4 doors realigned next week. What is my recourse if this problem is not fixed properly ? purchase date 6/15/2012 currently has 935 miles. Dealer states it is a manufacture defect and that they assure me the vehicle was not damaged during Transport.
