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 stalls at any given time. There is no engine light for a problem, there is no error code. Can't steer, have to restart car, and rev to get it started.

problem #3

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 97,000 miles
Twice now, the vehicle accelerated while on cruise control up to over 95 mph. I applied the brakes which slowed down a little bit, but the engine continued to rev and accelerate when I took my foot off the brake pedal. In both incidents, I had to shut off the car to get it to stop accelerating. There was a lot of traffic at the time, and I had to steer onto the shoulder with no power steering. The 2nd time this happened, I noticed the gas pedal was stuck even when the engine was off and had to be pressed on a couple of times before it would release. I am very concerned that this will happen again and cause a serious accident. I am planning on taking the vehicle in to get this fixed soon. I don't see any recalls and thought I should log a complaint here in case it helps saves other's lives as well.

While the vehicle was in motion towards an intersection, it lost power. I had to switch off all accessories, shifted gear to park and re-started the engine. Yesterday night, the vehicle stopped in motion by a toll gate, a truck was behind me and fortunately, by the toll gate, everyone slowed down. These are serious issues that Chrysler need to act one should have to suffer any more loss(ES) before Chrysler acts.
