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.

Over 20 miles per hour, car pauses for more than a normal minivan period of time, prior to accelarating. Also noise is heard coming from below minivan, when accling., that was not present up till a couple of months ago. Dealer service station claims that minivan was tested and pause in accl. Is normal. Noise still be checked out. If slow gaps in accl. Are normal, than why did this not happen for first year we owned the minivan" we've had recalled power steering hose changed as per recall instructions, power steering had, prior to recall, made extreme noises at times that were not normal, hose replacement seems to have solved that particular problem. Also, in past year and a half, had problem was A/C, and also defective fuel pump. Finally, when purchasing the 2003 limited own & country, was told by ref. Material, the write-up sales lit., & the dealer, that the memory unit could have the power adjustable pedals programmed into it for my wife & I's different settings, after 3 attempts and a module replacement by service shop, to link adj. Pedals with memory switch, now they state that our 2003 model was not equipped to control the pedals with mem. Settings?" we really thought when purchasing the Town & Country limited, that we were getting a top-notch, quality minivan for the near $40,000 we saved up to buy it!

The vehicle would not start. The consumer had to use the battery from another vehicle. The consumer started to have problems with a rattle in the door, the brakes squeaked, the air and heating would go up by itself, the back automatic hatch was not working and would come open while the vehicle was in motion, there was a loud grinding when the vehicle was placed in reverse due to a faulty accumulator and the check engine light had come on due to the transmission solenoid pack, there was a roaring sound when the vehicle was in motion, the passenger side seat belt was tangled and the drivers side seat belt retractor was faulty, a component was loose in the drivers seat back, there was noise in the sliding door on the right side, the brakes smelled smokey and were scrubbing, the clip on the cup holder was broken and the battery kept dying and would not hold charge.

(1) no event leading to failure (2) upon entering vehicle driver side and sitting down occasionally either right or left slider door will open. Does not seem to happen until I am seated, though that may be coincidental as I open door and sit in one motion. Is of no real consequence but I am concerned that situation will only get worse. (3) have not gone to dealership with problem yet. Only drive vehicle on occasion that is 3000 miles in first year. I will be making an appointment but must get day off work.
