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.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country, sliding side door motor failed very quickly. Chrysler refuses to fix problem since I'm not original owner. Also, liftgate motor failed about the same time and again, Chrysler refuses to fix under warranty. Both doors are hard to open due to this problem.

We had been having problems with our 2001 Chrysler Town and country. The sliding door kept opening while we were driving down the road and the door would open. Then while we were on vacation I was driving down the highway and the door caught on fire. Within 2 minutes the whole car was in flames if my three children had been in the car I am not sure if I would of been able to get them all out. The fire department got there in good time but it was to late. The whole van and everything in it was totally destroyed.
