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.

2002 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #1

Town & Country 6-cyl

A knocking sound has appeared again in the front suspension. About 18 months ago, a similar symptom appeared. After repeated repairs (tie-rod ends, for example), the dealer finally discovered that the front left cv 1/2 axle was defective. Replacement cured the problem. Apparently the same problem now happening again. A knocking sound is apparent during low speed travel on a street with slight variations. This seems to be slow enough to hear it. There is also a knock when deliberately swinging the steering wheel from side to side. I will continue to pursue remedying this repeated problem with my 2002 Town and country minivan.
