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 contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire. While traveling 20 mph, the vehicle's gears are slipping into first and second gear, causing the vehicle to shut off. The contact must restart the vehicle in order for the gears to function properly. The Chrysler dealer referenced service bulletin # 2100505. The current mileage is 10,000 and failure mileage was 9,000.

problem #1

Nov 062003

Crossfire 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 1,100 miles
Chrysler cross fire 2004. The manual transmission violently slips out of first gear into neutral after the car is moving the vechile and the clutch is disengaged. Albeit infrequently. This causes a very dangerous situation, crossing traffic that isn't controlled via a sign or light. Or, at any stop with someone behind you. In the 1,500 miles I've driven the car since I purchased it, I have narrowly avoided being rear-ended three times due to this problem. The dealership's service personnel have observed and verified the tendancy of it to slip from gear, (however Chrysler stars reponded that the problem wasn't frequent enough to repair). Leaving each start into traffic is the chance of a collision.
