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.

The Town & Country (T&C) minivan does not have a stearing wheel gear shift lock to prevent children from accidently shifting gears. You don't need to step on the brake to shift out of park in the Town & Country van. How did the safety commission allow Chrysler to get away with this" do we need to have an accident or have a child killed in one of these vans for the gov. To require Chrysler to install a safety lock on all of their popular minivans" I asked a dealer about this and they told me that chysler does not have a safety lock on its T&C minivans. This surprised me and the dealer, since many families do buy the T&C minivan. I think that Chrysler needs to install this feature in all of its popular vans! all I am asking for is Chrysler to install a safety feature that should have already been there in one of its most popular minivan series.
