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.

Concorde Limited 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,300 miles

Bought this car from a local dealer,with 44.000 miles on the odometer. Babied it , took great care in maintaining it. Even discovered later that it had been damaged and the dealer didn't tell me. Said a carfax "wasn't necessary". Motor blew at 66K, something in the bottom end. MY last Chrysler and definitely my last car from this dealer.

Concorde LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,925 miles

I own a 2002 Chrysler Concorde that after only 79,000 miles the engine blew up due to excessive oil sludge. I had to put a new engine in the car which cost me almost $4000.00 on top on my loan since I'm still paying for the car. It gave me no warning signs before it happened. I was driving down the road about 45 mph and when I stopped the engine died and started smoking really bad so I pulled over to the side of the road to get out of the way of oncoming traffic. I then had to have it towed to the mechanics' shop where they had it for 2 1/2 weeks. I have 2 children and a full time job so getting around during that time was real difficult since I had no vehicle. The mechanic said that there was an overly excessive amount of sludge blocking oil passages. I had the oil changed every 3,000 miles faithfully so this should not have happened. I think I deserve to get reimbursed for this huge inconvenience and it was obviously a problem with Chrysler's' engines and nothing to do with me. I contacted Chrysler main plant in Michigan and they wanted nothing to do with my complaint and they wouldn't even talk to me. I had a warranty that was up at 70,000 miles and this happened at 79,000, what a coincidence? This is wrong of Chrysler to treat their customers like this and I will never purchase another and neither will anyone that I know. I have told everyone about this even if I didn't know them so Chrysler is losing a lot of business. I would think that they would try to resolve this but they're not. DO NOT BUY A CHRYSLER!!
