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 bought a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country in August, 2002. In October, 2002, I had to return vehicle to the dealership because I was having problems with the transmission. They told me it was a computer problem. The transmission did fine until around the middle of 2003 when I noticed the transmission problem again. The car was taken back to the dealership in July 2002, and the transmission had to be over hauled. They would not put in a new transmission. Something about the 70% rule. I picked up the car on 8/30/03 from the dealership and the car is running ok now. I am just wondering if other people have had transmission problems on this vehicle.

Check engine light keeps coming on. It will turn-off later, and then return. Usually after driving in reverse. Had it repaired at a five-star dealer three times.

Automatic transmission disengaged while driving. Dealer was unable to duplicate or correct the problem. The service dealer manager verified and experienced these conditions and was unable to correct the problem. Two days after the purchase, the van shuttered at low speed, low rpms in reverse, slipped out of gear when attempting to ascend in grade, the check engine light had come on. Other problems that occurred, were as followed: The brake calipers were squealing which may have been due to sticking, the vehicle leaned to the left, and the right sliding door didn't open from the inside switch.

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.
