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.

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

Grand Caravan

  • 54,000 miles


Tipm faulty in our 2013 Dodge Caravan with 54000 miles. Van will not start..the fuel pump relay dangerously allows the fuel pump to continue even after van is shut off. These were recalled on thousands but only until 2012. Bought the van with 2 miles off showroom floor, never again will buy a Dodge.. customer service says we are out of the crappy 36,000 mile warranty and conveniently..this seems to happen after 45,000 miles in the Dodge.

When accelerator depressed RPM's would go to 4 or 5, but car wasn't getting much power. Pretty quickly RPM's started going to 6 and 7 with even less power. Stopped driving the car and had it towed to the nearest dealership. Was told the powertrain was still under warranty and it sounded like a transmission problem. When dealership called back they stated a part called a tipm needed to be replaced and the part is on back order with no estimated time of arrival. $925 for the part plus labor. What am I supposed to do until the part comes in, they said it could be 3 days or 3 months, no one knows.

After fueling van completely the engine stalls numerous time until the fuel gauge drops down about 1/8th below the full mark. This has actually happened many times in the last six to eight months and it always happens right after fueling to completely full. This happened most recently in a busy intersection with an elderly lady in the back.

On July 20, 2014, we filled up the van and traveled approx 120 miles out of town. Later in the afternoon, when trying to pull forward from a dead stop at red light, the van stalled. After 3 attempts, we were able to get to the side of the road. Turned off the car and waited a few moments. We were able to proceed with no problems. Took the van to the dealership the next week and were told that we probably had water in the fuel. The same thing has happened approximately 6-8 more times in the last 2 months. The most recent was Friday, September 5, 2014. I filled up late in the morning. The van stalled twice later in the afternoon when trying to pull out from stop signs.

My wife was driving early morning, while entering the freeway, she accelerated and crossed lanes. When she removed her foot from the accelerator, the van kept accelerating. She was between two semi trucks so she tapped the brakes and started hitting the cruise control buttons. The van kept accelerating. She was able to change lanes towards the berm and started to apply the brakes. She reached a speed of about 85 mph. As she was braking, the engine was still trying to accelerate. She was able to pull the van off the road and eventually was able to stop the vehicle and turned the ignition off. There was smoke coming from the brakes from the forced stop. Restarting the van after a few minutes, she proceeded safely to work. After rethinking the situation, she contacted Dodge and had the vehicle towed to the dealership. They tested the van and found no codes in the computer. The following week, a technician test drove the van and it accelerated uncontrollably also. He wrote that the pedal was not stuck. He put the van in neutral twice and turned the key off, and restarted the van and the RPM's were at 4,000. He then pulled off the road. He waited a while and then restarted the van and it ran normal. The technician did state that there were some codes (C212A, B192D, & B18A8) the dealer contacted Chrysler Corp. And they sent a technicians out to investigate.
