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 contact stated the engine light illuminated intermittently and while parked in the drive way, the engine failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who determined the battery acid leaked onto the wiring causing the engine to fail. The wiring was placed below the battery due to improper installation by a manufacturer defect. The contact notified the manufacturer. The vehicle had not been repaired.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country minivan-multi-passenger/ Oct 1st 2005. Was driving into a burger king drive-thru with the air-conditioning on. Suddenly there was a metallic kind of noise like a crunching on the right side where the air-conditioning system is located, then the vehicle started to lose power. I turned the air off and the noise stopped. After leaving burger king the air was turned back on, the same noise occurred; later smoke started billowing from the front of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken in today 10/04/05 to southeast automotive, who informed me that the compressor was the problem. I referred them to the warranty of the vehicle (not Chrysler) who informed them that there is a bulletin out on this same problem. The dealer claims that they were not aware of this. Anyway I was told that Chrysler will fix the problem. Currently there is a problem with the brakes on the right side of the vehicle. They are squealing and at the same time there is another noise on that end like struts or bearings or some other part is lose. It occurs when I brake or accelerating after I have stopped or when I turn the wheel of the vehicle. I asked the dealership to also check the brakes since they had just fixed both of them back on 3/14/05. They said that they drove it and do not detect any noises. I am concerned about this also, because it feels like the brakes are going to fail or that some other part on the right wheel of the vehicle is going to come loose at some point and become a danger to my family and I. a couple of months ago the engine died and all instrument panels went out while going up my drive-way. On another occasion the power window on the driver's side suddenly stopped working. Had to turn the engine off and wait for about two minutes before attempting to close again. One other thing that concerns me is that when in reverse the vehicle moves forward freely like if in the "drive mode".
