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.

- the contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Town and country. While driving at 65 mph the vehicle stalled. The dealer diagnosed the vehicle and installed a transmission carrier, but indicated that the fuel injection pump could also be the cause of the failure. This incident occurred for three weeks and continued to occur after being repaired. The failure occurred when the vehicle was hot or cold. The contact stated that there were no warning indicator lights when the stalling occurred. However, when the vehicle lost power the oil light indicator was lit. The contact felt unsafe driving the vehicle due to the frequent stalling incidents, including one that occurred at 1 am. Updated 2/22/2007 -now the vehicle exhibits a rough start condition. The steering had become very tight and makes noise. The radio will not play and the vehicle cuts off when it is on. Transmission problems. The horn will not sound. Rear wipers stopped working.

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • miles
I have a 2003 Chrysler Town and country limited with approximately 44,000 miles. On three occasions, when pressing the accelerator to the floor to pull out or pass, the engine accelerated more than anticipated and for a longer time. When the accelerator was released, the engine remained at high speed for an instant longer than normal then would not slow below a fast idle until the car was shut down and restarted. When taken to the dealer, the dealer, scully motors of windsor, ct, was able to replicate the problem, possibly even worse, and investigated. They have reported to me that the plate inside the throttle body was disintegrating and causing the throttle to hang open and told me the car was unsafe to drive. They told me there was no service bulletin on the problem, and when I called Chrysler customer service they also told me they had no other record of a similar problem. However, Chrysler is out of stock on replacement throttle bodies and reportedly many sites within Chrysler have the part on back order. This would indicate to a layman that the problem might be more widespread. Since the service personnel considered it such a threat to my safety that I should not drive the car, and since this does not seem to be a routine type of breakdown on a relatively new car, I believe it should be considered for review as a safety defect. I have requested the dealer to save the replaced parts for me.
