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.

Engine cradle is extremely rusted for the year and mileage of the car. Would not pass state inspection last week. Passenger side and mid section of engine cradle rusted enough that you could put your fingers thru it. Readin online this seems to be a major problem with these cars. This appears to be the only rust on the vehicle.

I was driving and the car just turned of on me in the middle of the intersection. Luckily as soon as I realized that it had turned off I was able to clear the intersection and pull to the far right before the light turned green to oncoming traffic. I had the car towed home and the next day I had a personal mechanic come take a look at it and found out that I needed to replace my ignition system. After hundreds of dollars later the car turns on but it has so many malfunctions with the electrical system, struts, axle, motor mounts and frame that this vehicle is just dangerous to drive and needs to be recalled altogether.

Purchased a 2008 Chrysler Pacifica with approximately 32K miles on it. The car was "certified" by Chrysler. At approximately 44K miles the engine would bang when shifting out of park to reverse or drive. According to the dealer the engine mounts were torn and needed to be replaced. I was told engine mounts are not covered under warranty because it's considered normal wear and tear and it would be around $700 to fix. I reviewed the Chrysler owner's manual and there is nothing that mentions motor mounts needing inspection for wear and tear. The standard items are listed such as oil, tires, filters, belts, fluid etc. If motor mounts are subject to normal wear and tear shouldn't they be listed so an owner can have them inspected? the certification checklist also didn't include an inspection of the engine mounts. Chrysler doesn't offer any information on the motor mounts in their warranty, certification inspection or owner's manual. After further research I've found numerous websites with other Pacifica owners having the same exact problem with the motor mounts. Failing motor mounts appear to be a factory defect Chrysler is ignoring.

2008 Chrysler Pacifica- 20 days old- not even made first payment the car leaked water after raining(under the car) the water soaked the passenger side front and back floor, ruining carpets. I had to call corporate Chrysler to get the carpets replaced. There is some kind of broken seal under the car. They still have the car and everything has not been disclosed to me as of yet.
