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.

The contact owns a 2003 Chrysler Town and country. While driving 60 mph, the front wheels locked up and the ABS warning light illuminated. The vehicle was safely pulled over and was towed to a local mechanic. The mechanic diagnosed the cause of failure as a cracked brake piston. The caliper, brake lines, front brake rotors, and front brake pads were replaced. The contact has the failed parts. The purchase date was unknown. The current mileage is 67,000 and failure mileage was 66,591.

I purchased my vechicle in July of 2003. In August of 2003 with about 20,000 miles on it my front brakes had to be replaced. I thought brakes should last much longet than that. The dealership replaced the brakes for me and I chose less expensive ones(180.00) not cheap. He told me they would squeak. Ok so they squeaked for months and this past week my rear brakes went bad. I questioned that I have not even had this 1.5 years and have had to replace both front and rear brakes(300.00). He told me they do not make them like they used to. I would expect them to be better today. I am very dissappointed in this van. I will probably never buy a Chrysler again considering I have already spent $500 on the brakes.

I purchased a new 2003 Chrysler Town and country van May 23, 2003. Today is August 3, 2004. I have 26,000 miles on this van and have just had to replace the front brakes and had to have the drums ground. The brakes have skweaked since the it was new and I reported this to the dealership at least 2 other times before this time. I was told that was "normal" on a new van. I think the wear of these brakes is excessive for this milage and believe it to be poor engineering or a substandard assembly I have been told that the back brakes are also wearing and will need to be replaced with the next service. I have owned many many new vehicles and I have never experienced this. This is undoubtedly a deffect under the which the warranty should be effective.
