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: What the heck happened here? A year after getting our "seal of pretty good" for the 2004, Chrysler turns around and delivers this crapwagon.

This minivan has problems ranging from rack and pinion steering failure to door locks that won't let you out. And trust me, you'll want to get out.

We own a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country touring van. At approximately 16000 we had a problem with the rack & pinion and ball joints. It was taken to a dealer that was suppose to have fixed the problem -- we have had problems with items in that area since then. We have enjoyed our vehicle except for this problem -- the lastest incident is the tie rod end needs to be replaced and we were told that it would not be covered under the warranty. The vehicle has approximately 51,000 miles on it at this time.

Under body spare tire cable system. The van had a flat tire, I let the tire down and replaced it. Went to return cable and tire holder back up and it would not crank up all the way, there by leaving the spare tire holder still hanging down almost touching the ground. I tied it up to keep from hanging down and took the van in to have the tire fixed, tire shop tired to put spare tire, it would not go up all the way that time either. I then called the dealership and they stated it was stripped and that it was a poor design by Chrysler and they had replaced others too. Stated that it was not covered under warranty and we had to pay @$144.61 to have it replaced. The item is called a spare tire lock winch assembly.

Contact purchased a 2005 Chrysler town and country manufactured by daimler/Chrysler corporation. On July 5, vehicle had a flat tire, and had to use the spare tire. When the service dealer replaced the tire and put the spare back into place it came off while the consumer was driving on July 26, 2005. The spare tire was located underneath the passenger side and driver side seat. The service manager of the dealership was made aware of this concern. Consumer has not contacted the manufacturer.
