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.

When the gas gauge goes down to a half a tank the gage goes all the way to empty. Very annoying because I have no idea how much gas I really have. Then when I try to fill it up it take about 15 minutes to get $20 worth of gas in the tank. It will only take about 25 cents at a time before the gas pump shutts off and I have to wait a couple seconds for the gas to go down the filler tube. Also I have had problems with the motor mounts. They seem to keep breaking. These problems seem to be all over the internet. My problem is not isolated.

Second time this happened in two months. Driving in dry, pleasant weather conditions on residential road less than 30 mph. Car stalled--lost power steering, brakes, etc. Oil light definitely was on. Coasted to side of the road and turned car off then on. Car started right back up. Oil light was off now. Took it to a mechanic, who said no computer code was generated, although there was an ABS code (which appeared to be totally unrelated). Electronic throttle body appeared clean, but took it apart and checked it. This is a dangerous condition similar to other stalling problems I have read about on 2004-06 Pacificas, and that had led to a recall on older models. Called Chrysler recall, but they have no record on this problem. Why won't Chrysler do anything on this one?

The first time I had to have the motor mounts replaced on my 07' Chrysler Pacifica was in 2009. There was an awful almost slamming type noise and the vehicle "jumped" when accelerating. I took the vehicle to the dealership, it was still under warranty at that time and they said the motor mounts were cracked and they would replace them, but couldn't guarantee how long they would last. The mechanic said that it was "an issue" on the Pacifica model as it was a design flaw and he had seen this problem often. Since the first time the motor mounts were found to be cracked in 2009, I have had to replace the motor mounts 2 more time and now they are broke again; totaling 4 times in 7 years!!! this is absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable! I have called Chrysler quite a few times in the last 4 years and got nowhere! they could not care less that the consumer has to pay for their "design flaw"! if I had known that I would have the same problem keep repeating, I 100% would not have bought this vehicle! and if I had known that Chrysler would give me an arousing "oh well, too bad for you", I 110% would not have bought from this company! how sad that even after all the money they have made off people buying their products they won't do anything to help! inexcusably disgusting!!

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles
I was driving down the street at approximately 25 miles per hour and lost the ability to accelerate. The electronic throttle control light came on. I turned the car off and back on and the car drove normally for about a mile, and then behaved the same way. I went to the dealer for an inspection a month after purchasing the vehicle because the perform service indicator was displayed, the only suggestion was to fix motor mounts. The battery died on me a week later, and now the car is losing power while I'm in traffic. The vehicle is turning into a money pit.

Vehicle is parked in the garage and unable to put the car in reverse to back out. After googling the problem, it seems that many owners have had this issue and discussing with Chrysler customer service their answer was to engage the pink plastic button inside shifter console which I'm afraid did not work for me. I've since released the cable inside the hood to free up the shifter and now in the shop for repair. Chrysler is aware of this issue and made corrections for the 05-07 300's &chargers but neglected the Pacificas, for what reason I don't know.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 69,585 miles
The transmission shifter interlock lever, a small plastic part within the shifter assembly of certain automatic transmission vehicles of the Chrysler marquee has a hook to which a spring is attached. When the hook breaks, the vehicle cannot be moved because the shifter lever will become locked in the "park" position. The Chrysler corporation, in an agreement with NHTSA (as I have been made aware) voluntarily recalled several Chrysler products which shared this part, under their "customer satisfaction notification K39". those vehicles, Chrysler 300, Dodge magnum and charger (2005-2007), probably many thousands, were all repaired at no charge to owners. You must be aware that this identical part, interchangeable with the above-mentioned vehicles, is installed in Chrysler Pacifica vehicles. But the "voluntary" recall excluded any Pacifica vehicle. There are many hundreds, if not thousands of Pacifica vehicles, including my own, for which this part has broken. A short investigation on the web will document my assertion. This problem can occur at any time, and, under certain circumstances could be considered a safety-related issue. I cannot currently place my vehicle into the "park" position for fear that I will be required to tow or disassemble the car to move it. This is an intolerable situation, and I demand your effort to add Chrysler Pacifica vehicles to this recall.

2007 Pacifica 4L engine turns off while driving. Also shifts rough into 2nd gear. Dealer recommends motor mounts be replaced for rough transmission. No solution offered for stalling other than to replace battery that is not defective. Traction control light on all the time with esp/bas light on all the time. No solutions offered to actually fix problems, just cost money. Car losing power is safety concern.
