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. Notes: Engine cradle rot is a serious problem in the 2004-05 Chrysler Pacifica. Chrysler admits they didn't apply enough coating to the vehicle's sub-frame during assembly, but only offered to cover a very small portion of the vehicles they messed up.

So what happens when your engine cradle rots? Well, the engine could fall out for starters. It could also cause problems with the suspension and other components but did I mention THE ENGINE CAN FALL OUT? The worst part is you might not know because there's no way to see the problem without getting under the car.

If you have a 2004-05 Pacifica, make sure to have your mechanic inspect your sub-frame for rust and corrosion.

2004 Chrysler Pacifica with approx. 46,000 miles logged. Electric seats, driver and passenger no longer adjust. Also, driver memory and pedal height adjustment inoperative. As my spouse and I are about 12" different in height, she is no longer able to drive the car. When she attempted to drive it, she was up against the steering wheel and said it was too dangerous.

While entering a construction zone on interstate 95 on mayland near perryville, I was travelling approximately 10 mph and was struck from the rear by a Mazda 6 traveling at a higher rate of speed. There were no skid marks. When my car, a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica was struck in the rear, the drivers seatback failed and I was thrown in the back seat against my 14 year old daughter.
