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.

The cooling fan broke off a blade which put a hole in the radiator and blew the alternator. I had to replace the radiator = $450 battery - $100 cooling fan = $150 alternator = $185 $885 later on the cooling fan should not have broke.

We have 5 Chrysler 300's used for transporting our residents in and around our community 4 out of 5 of these vehicles have had the same issue. The cooling system fan blades come apart and the shrouds of the fan go through the radiator causing immediate leakage of all coolant and destroying the radiator. As of date 4/30/12 Chrysler/Dodge has yet to recall this defect and is not covered under warranty. This is obviously a problem with this year, model and needs to recalled on the 300's and the Dodge chargers.

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler 300. The contact stated that while waiting at a traffic stop, she heard a loud popping noise and then temperature gauge indicated that the vehicle was overheating. The contact mentioned that once she exited the vehicle, she realized that all of the radiator fluid had drained out. The vehicle was towed to a dealer who diagnosed that the electric power radiator cooling fan had separated and punctured the radiator. As a result, both needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was not included in aany recalls. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 49,000 and the current mileage was 53,000.
