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.

Purchased new 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. At approx. 1,000 miles driven shuddering occurred intermittently but frequently. Returned to dealer in early Oct. 2007. Said could not duplicate. Problem still occurred. Returned to dealer again a few days later. Told we had defective torque converter. The part was ordered and replaced in Nov.2007. Shortly after replacement shuddering returned. Again intermittent. Usually occurs between 20-40 mph and often times on inclines. (similiar to driving over rumble strips) continued reporting the problem and returning to dealer. Over 6 times now as of Jan.2008. Each time their response is they cannot duplicate the problem. Other issues such as driver's side speaker not working right, now it's on the 3rd attempt to fix. Recently, the passenger side mirror was stuck in place and controls wouldn't move it. That was fixed. Left blinker stays on intermittently. When brought to their attention, they claim they cannot duplicate problem. Contacted Chrysler 2X in January esp. Regarding torque converter problem. During the course of all this we became aware of numerous others who have same problem. Also read tsb's issued prior to and after purchase of our vehicle. One states problem cannot be duplicated. Yet, Chrysler's response is that if it cannot be duplicated bring it to another dealer! I told them at this point and the info. I gathered I do not believe it is a dealer problem, they have a faulty product.. I have 3 young children and purchased a vehicle to have a safe & reliable vehicle. One of my chidlren has epilepsy and I never no when she'll need emergency care. I have tried unsuccessfully for months to resolve this problem, first with the dealer & now with Chrysler. I am not one to file complaints or take other avenues, but this experience with Chrysler has left me no alternative. To date, my vehicle has been out of service 11 days.

Pacifica

I purchased 2007 Pacifica in Feb 07, within 2 months had been back to dealer twice for knocking while driving and vehicle feeling like it wanted to stall, also for extremely "rough ride" when traveling over the smallest of bumps in road. Dealer serviced vehicle twice, once replacing torque converter and once replacing motor mounts. The problems continue, although less than before.

Pacifica 6-cyl

After the car was a month old a thumping started underneath upon starting. At times the thumping (shuddering) is severe and the engine does not start. After the transmission was reprogrammed (I doubt it was really done as there is no sticker underthe hood as required) the car, sometimes, lurches like a new driver with standard shift. The car, sometimes at around 32mph, surges or pulses. The climate control has not worked according to the instructions in the manual since day one. Now in coldweather, when it is directed to the floor, so much heat comes from the defroster that I get a headache and the floor is freezing. There is a clunking in the right front on nearly any road surface. I do not feel that it is a ball joint, but rather a strut. I scheduled an arbitration, but ncds did not botherto let me know if the arbitrator could make the meeting, so I did not attend. The meeting proceeded without me and the arbitrator and Chrysler seem to feel that everything my car does is normal. I have been in the auto repair business for 40 years and have better things to do than make up problems.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. When the vehicle reaches 2,000 rpms while on a slight incline, the transmission begins to shutter and skip. This leads to failure between the transmission and the torque converter. The contact recently took the vehicle to the repair shop and they stated that it could not be repaired until September of 2007. The transmission also makes a harsh clunking sound when shifting. The contact believes that the suspension may be failing because the vehicle rides roughly at any speed. The current mileage was 800 and failure mileage was 350. The consumer stated Chrysler stated this was a software problem and will not be able to fix the vehicle until sometime in September. Updated 09/11/07
