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.

While driving, vehicle came to a complete stop, consumer restarted the engine and proceeded to put the car in drive, however it only drifted backwards, a mechanic stated that Chrysler uses plastic sensors to hold on the transmission case, these sensors became cracked due to poor quality material, which resulted in a transmission leak, the mechanic had to replace them with the same plastic sensors, consumer is concerned that this will occur again.

Transmission produces a very loud noise, it was replaced once but after 2000 miles the noise is back, the dealer states that this is a design flaw.
