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
  • 4,000 miles


Vehicle has electrical problems including but not limited to power windows, wipers, stereo, headlights, and ac controls. Problems include headlights flickering on and off, wipers/stereo does not function when you first turn on the car and then comes on by itself anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 days later. No pattern can be determined which makes me to believe that the whole electrical system of this vehicle is defective. According to the dealership they cannot duplicate the problem, or if they cannot determine the cause of the problem, therefore it isn't their problem. I have spent countless trips to the dealerships and paid for them to look at it only to be told that they can't duplicate it. Then they offer me a solution for no less than $400 that is supposed to "fix" the problem when anyone with common sense knows that I would just spend that money and still have the problem because the replacement that they are proposing isn't the root of the problem.

I brought car in for analysis for the power steering problem several times while still under warranty and was re-assured that I was experiencing normal noises. About a few months later when the car was now not under warranty the rack and pinion failed. And upon picking up the vehicle on 08/09/2002 I noticed that the airconditioning was not working. Then was told that now the condenser for the ac has now failed.
