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.

Grand Caravan

The door locks stopped working for both the lock button and the key fob. This becomes a safety issue because the side doors can be locked manually, but the lift gate does not have a manual lock. Additionally online research shows that the tipm failure can cause catastrophic events such as sudden airbag deployment for no reason, failure to start, stalling while driving, etc.!! Chrysler is said to be well aware of this issue and has yet to initiate a recall and we were planning on a Florida vacation this year (we live in Ohio) and due to the possibility of getting stuck on our way or once there, we decided not to go to the dismay of our kids. Fix this problem Chrysler and quit screwing your customers!!!
