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.

2008 Chrysler Pacifica Owner Comments

  • 12,100 miles


2008 Chrysler with 12,100 miles on odometer experienced a second breakdown for the same lower radiator hose failure. Original NHTSA complaint ODI number 10286512. Lower radiator hose originally failed at 6,200 miles due to hose rubbing against engine, causing hose to burst. Hose was replaced under warranty in October 2009. In January 2010, at approximately 12,100 miles, lower radiator burst again, for same reason. Chrysler dealership indicated that replacement hose was also installed incorrectly, and that hose was found to be rubbing against fan shroud, causing failure. This is now second repair/replacement for same hose in 12,000 miles (7 months).

  • 6,200 miles
Relatively new SUV (2008 Chrysler Pacifica) with approximately 6,000 miles experienced a breakdown caused by the engine overheating on interstate 95 in Maine while on a trip. After being towed to a local Chrysler dealer, it was determined that the lower radiator hose had failed due to probable incorrect installation at time of manufacture. The radiator hose was found to have a hole in it which caused the loss of coolant and subsequent overheating. This hole apparently was caused by the hose rubbing up against a part of the engine, causing it to wear and brake prematurely.
