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.

I really cant get mean with this van, because it does have over 450,000 miles with original motor and transmission.but besides the window motors this van has been the best car that i have ever owned. Was first my mom's var when she did day care and she got it with 45,000 miles on the van,well she no longer does daycare and the van had 390,000 miles on her, and i was looking for a new car because I went through 4 in a month (all over 5,000) cars,so she was going to buy a dodge caliber and trade the van in for 100$ so i told her if i could have the van.has been the best ever.
