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

The vehicle stalled without warning. As the consumer pulled into the parking space, the vehicle stalled without warning, then the vehicle was placed in park, restarted, and continued into the parking space. On another occasion the vehicle into reverse, the vehicle stalled without warning, restarted the vehicle, placed in drive and stalled again. There was an intermittent click noise when the pedal is depressed, the A/C fan noise, the suspension felt loose and leaned to left, uneven tire wear, clunk noise in the front end when coming to a stop, when turning, and pulling into a parking space, the tires meet a resistance, the gas pedal vibrated, and there was a groaning noise in the steering wheel and or the engine when turning or when in reverse. The motor mount was installed incorrectly and was repositioned properly. Scc

2002 Chrysler Town & Country horn the horn on the vehilcles is very difficult to honk, for the lack of a better word. Tapping the horn as a friendly gesture is out of the question - in fact it is disconcerting in that you really have to press hard on it to make it work and when it finally works, it is quite a blast (because of the pressure required). The dealer says that they are all this way (I can't be sure of that)and that they are not allowed to make any changes to the tension or part involved in the problem. No vehicle I have ever owned has even remotely exhibited this problem. The fact is that it becomes a safety issue because one has to consciously think about how hard to press on the horn to produce the desired results. In this case, the only result is a very loud and unfriendly blast. Many thanks, nick 707-785-3440
