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.

I have talked to someone about a couple of months ago at the Chrysler dealer call center and have complained about my rear tire locking up and brakes has been changed twice in one year and when they lock up only on that rear tire it starts to smoke and smell like the rubber is burning and my other complaint that started yesterday July 24,2010 I was returning home and pulling off from where I was parked as I was pushing the gas for acceleration is was hesitation like it wasn't getting the gas. Then as I proceeded to continue to accelerate it continuously done the same thing like it was going to cut off. I was at the stop light in a city area and it had major hesitation and it was dangerous and very frightening. Just imagine a car not going when the gas is pushed and you got a big trucker behind you those people in other cars don't know what is going on with you they are not going to slow down and may cause an accident.

I was driving on the hwy and my brake engaged not sure if it was the E-brake or reg brake it jerked the car forward and the brake light came on and as fast it happened it corrected itself and the light went out. I called the place I bought it and answer was bring it back and I will refund your money, I have already paid out a good deal just registering and sales tax what do I do.

At 28,00 miles it was necessary to replace all rotors and brake pads. This is way too soon for this type of repair.

Three warning lights came on simultaneously - brake, ABS and traction control off. Although no accident has occurred, we felt if prudent to notify you since you have an investigation underway regarding an earlier model of Chrysler mini-vans with the same symptoms that have resulted in accidents due to complete braking failure. We believe the goal is to prevent an accident from happening before the failure.
