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.

Chrysler is claiming that all of power steering repairs are not due to the recall id no. 04V268000. The power steering hoses have failed, which caused the pump to fail. Chrysler charged us for failure of the pump, but now at this time we are having to pay for the hoses, which has caused the belt to be replaced, which now causes pump damage. We paid for the hoses to be replaced as well, but now find out now it is caused by Chrysler not fixing the right power steering components that are listed on this recall. We would like all compensation for our rental car fees that we have had to pay for while our car has been in the shop twice now for power steering issues. Our vehicle is a 2004 Chrysler pt.
