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.

2003 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 012005

Town & Country Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles


Chrysler said the transmission needed to be overhauled in Feb of 2012. This problem has been going on since I purchased this vehicle in 2005. It would seem to me that if it needed to be overhauled form purchase the factory warranty that was in effect at the time they would fixed it when took it in at that time or it would have failed by now. When you start from a stop it will act like a manual transmission you let the clutch to quickly and the car shudders.

Town & Country LX

Been in shop 4 times for transmission problems. Never been fixed. They keep it a day or two and say it is okay now and right away it does it again. Shift is never smooth. Up-dated the TCM and afterwards the transmission started up-shifting. Replaced valve body and it still shifts rough. Also replaced torque converter.
