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.

Thick white smoke was coming out of the back of the van - it had a burning smell. People on the highway were moving away from us because of it. We brought it to our mechanic and he said that the tubes that feed antifreeze to the back of the van (to heat the back) were all rotted, and leaked antifreeze all over the exhaust. He said it was a result of "poor manufacturing." The car is a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country and only has 30,000 miles on it. The warranty just ran out 2 months ago.

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
Lincoln Town and country would stall when shifting. Around 1K miles the vehicle had become hard to shift and would stall. The consumer had taken the vehicle for a recall and felt it was a mistake because the vehicle did not run the same since. On a few occasions moisture filled the vehicle as far back as the middle seats. When the vehicle stopped in the street or at idle it seemed as if the timing was slow. The vehicle was shifted into neutral and smoothed out. The consumer also heard a noise in the motor which turned about 1700-1750 RPM's, and a loud sound had come from the engine area. (the noise had become intermittent) while traveling, the consumer viewed smoke and or steam in which they were unsure of where it was coming from but when they looked under the hood everything looked fine. The dealer was unable to fix the problem. The consumer thought that something was wrong with the A/C but not sure because of other noises. The vehicle also needed a muffler and a resonator.
