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. Notes: Chances are you didn't want to have to buy a used minivan, but chances are you _also_ didn't realize how much stuff you need to travel with kids. When it comes to hauling around piles of diaper bags and coolers full of snacks, you could do worse than the 2004 Town & Country. Especially when you compare it to the 2005.

problem #1

Jan 012004

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles
The vehicle has had numerous problems related to quality and safety. In June of 2004 the serpentine belt split and all power assist was lost, Chrysler replaced the ac compressor and the belt but did not replace any ps hoses. The van is now leaking power steering fluid that must be replaced almost as often as I get gas. This is unsafe and annoying. The van also has a thumping sound when whenever you go over this slightest bump. It sounds like a strut or spring is loose in the front end. I took it to bcp in smyrna when it first started happening and they couldn't find anything wrong. In 2005 the transmission was shuttering whenever we came to a stop and it downshifted. The service foreman took a ride and said there was nothing wrong. I took it to world transmission in dover and he put a tester on it and determined that the defaults were off and he reset them. I haven't had a transmission shutter since then.
