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 depressing the accelerator, the car makes a grinding or clunking noise. We lifted the hood, put the car in drive and depressed the parking brake. We then applied accelerator and the front of the engine lifted from the motor mount a good 2 or 3 inches. This is extremely dangerous and this actually started doing this shortly after I purchased it in June of 2014. It had 97000 miles and now has 117000 miles. I am fearful of having the engine come completely off the frame. I am taking it to my independent mechanic next week. I cannot believe with all the complaints that this model has that it has not been recalled. I guess since no one has died yet or been seriously injured the manufacturer must feel fairly confident that they will just wait till everyone stops buying them. Well, I am selling my car after it is fixed. I have already had to have the shifter replaced because that went out about 3 months ago and my mechanic had to replace it. I think I should be reimbursed for that as well, and you can be sure I am keeping all of my receipts for repairs that I should not even have to make on an 8 year old vehicle.

Shortly after starting and driving the car, within a couple of minutes, the car completely stops running with no warning lights. Just dies while driving as if the ignition was just turned off. This has happened multiple times causing a significant safety hazard as the power brakes and steering immediately stop working. The car is under an extended manufacturer's bumper-to-bumper warranty so the repair should be covered as it is a clear defect. Apparently, because the car just stopped, no codes were recorded as to the nature of the problem. Hence, the dealer was unable to identify a problem. The dealer recommended that the cost of a suspected repair be made by the owner because they could not definitely define the problem as necessary to be reimbursed under the warranty. Recommended repair was done at owner's cost yet the same thing happened again. An earlier model of this car had a recall to repair a similar if not identical problem.

I had my 2007 Pacifica in park position with the engine on. I put my foot on the brake to reverse the car out of parking space. The gear shift lever would not release and go into reverse. I had to have the car towed to the dealer to repair. Cost me over $500 (part #4880276-ab shifter T21030407). Being stuck in traffic is very dangerous.

  • 100,000 miles
Power steering fails completely for about 30 seconds or more. This occurs when the vehicle travels through any water on the road that may splash into the engine compartment. The steering belt gets wet and will slip (making a screeching noise until it spins off the water and dries). The power assisted steering will stop completely not allowing the driver to maneuver the vehicle until the power steering is restored. This problem will cause the driver not to be able to change the direction of the vehicle in any direction to complete a turn or avoid a collision! it is very dangerous and can occur without warning. We are looking into the problem. It maybe that a splash guard was left off and not replace during a previous service. This has not been confirmed to be the fix. We will update this post once this is confirmed to be the fix.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 69,585 miles
When I tried to drive my car out of my garage, I could not move the shift lever out of "park". I later learned that a part in the shift linkage assembly had broken. In fact, this broken part, a lockout over-ride, has been replaced under a recall of all other Chrysler and Dodge products which have this part installed. But for the Chrysler Pacifica, which has the identical part, no recall has been issued. I have been driving my car around, but have not been able to use the "park" position of the shift lever. If I inadvertently placed the shift lever into "park", say at a railroad crossing, I would not be able to move the car! this a dangerous and safety-related problem, and I want NHTSA to force Chrysler to recall my car and all other Pacifica's with this problem, and replace this lockout override.
