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.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that the vehicle has experienced several failures since the date it was purchased. The weather stripping came off and was taken to the dealer twice for repair. The locks on the driver side fail to indicate when the doors are locked. Two weeks ago, while driving 30 mph, the contact applied the brakes and the vehicle began to shake violently. Additionally, the steering wheel felt as if it would detach. When the vehicle came to a stop, the contact discovered that the rear tires appeared loose and the rear axle failed. The dealer was notified and the vehicle was towed to the repair shop. The weather was sunny at the time of failure. The VIN and engine size were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 47,000.
