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.

At approximately 40,000 miles, while a computer-related recall repair was being performed, I was informed by the Chrysler dealership that motor mounts were a potential problem & to keep a watch on it. I thought this was an odd comment at the time, as the car was barely 3 years old (and, of course, out of warranty). Fast forward to approximately 70,000-75,000 miles, and we started having issues. They are particularly noticeable when I am slowing to a stop, and then re-accelerate (for instance, the light changed green right as I was slowing to a stop, so I would take my foot off the brake & then accelerate instead) - the car won't move right away, and then it suddenly "clunks" into gear & lurches forward. The force is so strong that I have almost rear-ended someone on several different occasions. I have contacted Chrysler regarding the issue - have been told it isn't covered as my car is out of warranty. I thought Chrysler would certainly issue a recall, due to the sheer volume of complaints online regarding this same issue - but so far they have not. I finally brought my vehicle in to be repaired - I was told four mounts are bad! I drive almost all freeway miles in Suburban area - no gravel roads, etc. - this should not be occurring. I am still hoping for a recall as this is dangerous and I feel whoever supplied these bad parts should have to stand behind their premature failure.

Dealer instructed me that the front and rear motor mounts were cracked on a car with less than 100K miles. This is not covered under Chrysler's powertrain or extended warranty. This is a common occurrence with Chrysler's motor mounts.

Pacifica

  • 70,000 miles
My 2007 Chrysler Pacifica began stalling on 8/17/2011. We have to put the car in neutral and re-start, no matter what the traffic conditions. We lose all power steering and brakes when this happens. After about 3 stalling incidents in a short time. We took it to the dealership. They had the car for a couple of days and couldn't find the cause. They sent me home and said to keep a diary of problems. I kept track for a year. In that time the car had stalled 24 times. The time of day and conditions were all noted. In August of this year, the car stalled numerous times. We took the car back to the dealership with the diary. They have had my car since 8/27/12. We have incurred $800 in rental car expense. They put a computer on board and sent the car home with my husband to drive for a week. He pushed the button when it stalled 4 times. The computer recorded the stalls, but no codes. They can't re-create the problem and have no answers. I some times drive with our grandchildren and will not drive the car until this is resolved. Motor mounts were replaced early in our ownership. The only thing that Chrysler can offer was to clean the throttle body. The dealership did that and it didn't help. The car has started stalling at higher speeds. Initially it was 10-25 mph. The last few times it was around 35 mph. This is clearly a safety issue and needs to be taken seriously.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 97,000 miles
While driving at speeds of 10-35 mph, the oil and esp lights would illuminate, then the engine will simply cut off / stall. We have to put on the emergency flasher while in traffic, put the vehicle in neutral or park and restart. No engine light. We brought the Pacifica in to the Dodge dealership 5 times and they could not find any codes. They tried updating the software on the ECM which did not help. Then, the dealership said the motor mounts were bad and the torque of the engine was pulling on the front wiring harness(ES), causing the stalling issue. We had all 3 (front, rear, upper) engine/motor mounts replaced and the issue still happens every time we try to drive the car. The dealership has the car again and said the front motor mount still looks like it is bad even though it was replaced 4 days ago. Based on what I've read in the NHTSA database and the Dodge dealership telling me that motor mounts go out on a lot of Pacificas, this is happening to a lot of 2007 Pacifica owners. Chrysler should absolutely recall the motor mounts on this vehicle and provide a more reliable replacement motor mount with a robust design at no charge to all Pacifica owners. My wife has reported that she has almost been rear ended several times as a result of suddenly stalling while driving. To have this vehicle completely stall out while my wife is taking my 3 kids to school or other activities could cause a crash and is potentially life threatening. I just want this issue to be resolved. The Pacifica is a well designed car and we love the interior but we need reliable transportation.
