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.

2003 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

We are the original owner of a 2003 Chrysler T & C. in August, 2009, my wife began experiencing problems with the window motor suddenly becoming inoperable for a short period of time, then suddenly working again. One day, as I was driving the van, the check engine light came on. I immediately parked the vehicle. After a few days, the car restarted and the check engine light went off. However, on August 20, the check engine light came on while I was leaving a conference. After less than mile, then van began shuddering, the lights began blinking then the vehicle died. I was traveling at approximately 40 mph when this occurred. The van would not restart, in fact the only thing I received was a click. I had the car towed home and again left alone. This time, the when I turned the key, the response was just a click. Also, there was an electrical drain that caused me to replace two batteries. In order to keep this from recurring, I disconnected the negative post. After checking and replacing the starter as well, I had it towed to a facility who confirmed the problem was a bad PCM. The cost to remedy this was $750.

The drivers side and passenger side windows in my 2003 Chrysler Town and country have fallen into the door multiple times without warning or during use. The first time was the driver's side as I was leaving work and it was 15 degrees out. The window fell into the door. The second time was the passenger window and it fell out while no one was in the vehicle and it was parked in a very urban downtown area. As I was leaving work I approached my vehicle and noticed the window was gone. I opened the van and could tell it had fallen into the door while I was working that day. The last time I was in the van and I heard a loud snap and my husband who was outside the van opened the door to see what had happened and could tell the window was going to fall. The failure is apparently in the window actuator or something. The dealer has had to replace these parts. It is currently in the shop for the 3 occurrence and we have asked to keep the old part.

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.
