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.

Rear hatch would lock - but not be secured. Several times, during acceleration, rear hatch would open - exposing occupants to outside - as well as forcing driver to stop vehicle in high speed areas (especially freeway on-ramps). Two previous notifications to the dealership were of no help. Finally fixed end December 2004. Driver's power window failed completely. Two trips to dealership (for what was intermittent at time) gave me a silicone grease that I am still wiping off the window every time that I use. Finally fixed December 2004. Also, experiencing the much mentioned noises from the front end. The power steering noise (dealer says normal) and a crunching / clicking sound that sounds like a bad cv joint or at least a broken suspension piece. Unresolved as of picking up from dealer today. Chrysler service is not very impressive. I have never dealt with a car company that could explain away so many abnormalities as being normal.

Liftgate suddenly popped open without warning while driving. The dealership indicated that they were going to replace the tailgate module and that should correct the problem. The van wouldn't start and no problem was found, the battery was replaced, the vehicle did not start again and a new battery was installed, the liftgate module was replaced and the battery leaked and left a powdery substance on the concrete.
