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.

My Chrysler Pacifica 06 has a lifter problem and have heard of other Pacifica's with the same issue. Believe a recall should be issued on this and Chrysler is refusing.

I have a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica that emits a strong natural gas smell. The problem started 3 days ago (2/20/10). I went to the Chrysler dealership today to fix the problem. They confirmed the smell of natural gas, but could not offer a solution to the problem. They drove the car and upon braking and acceleration the fumes were emitted. The Chrysler mechanics said that żthey could not find anything mechanical that would cause the smell.ż my lungs hurt and my nerves are really getting bad! just by driving around trying to find someone who can fix it! I drive with the windows down and IżM still affected by the fumes. We just had a snow storm and IżM freezing in my car, trying to breathe! I live in detroit, we are the hardest hit by this recession and I need a car to keep my job! I have to travel to my customers. I donżT have another vehicle, nor can I afford one. Please help.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. While driving approximately 70 mph on normal road conditions, the engine stalled unexpectedly. The engine restarted and resumed normal operation. On a separate occassion, when the engine restarted, the contact noticed an excessive amount of white smoke and fumes coming from the exhaust. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing, but they could not duplicate the failures. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on a separate occasion for the same failures, but there was no resolution. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were unavailable. Updated 04/15/09. Updated 04/16/09.

Oil consumption problem with 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. My 2006 Pacifica has 38000 miles on it and I am experiencing issues with oil consumption. I was told by the dealership that Chrysler corporation believes it is 'acceptable' that a car with under 50,000 miles burns approximately 1 quart of oil per 1000 miles! this is absurd if you ask me! how can this be acceptable " another problem is that I've read from other blogs is that Chrysler does not feel that this is an issue that warrants further investigation and many times, the underlying issue for the poor oil consumption is not found until a major problem occurs with the engine, and the car's warranty has expired, leaving the consumer to suffer the consequences! this is not only bad business but has to be bad for the environment, if a car is 'burning' oil that fast, where is it going" no wonder the world is suffering from global warming if automakers like Chrysler and Ford find that burning oil this fast is acceptable!! please help! I know this must be a widespread issue. I've read many on-line comments of consumer suffering from this same problem with Chrysler PT CRUISER, Pacificas, and others!
