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.

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,100 miles


Instrument panel ceased to function while the vehicle was being driven. Problem apparently caused by design defect in cable routing - wiring too close to alternator, damaged wiring and instrument cluster circuitry. Cables were replaced at cost of $235, but problem returned 3 months later. Replacement of instrument panel circuit board now necessary at cost of over $500. Were told that Chrysler recently increased cost of part tenfold. Dealer reported several similar complaints over past year. Safety issue as speedometer and shift indicator ceased to function.
