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.

Started hearing a groaning type noise from under the hood when turning, backing and certain other conditions about 1 year ago which I figured was the power steering pump. I finally and reluctantly returned to the Chrysler dealer to have it looked at and was told that the steering rack has a leak and that and the power steering pump had to be replaced. Of course my 3/36 warranty had expired in September 07 and I only have 39000 miles on the van. I feel this is a huge problem with these vans and there should be a recall and we should be reimbursed for our expenses which in my case cost me $1350! this could be much more serious with injury occurring if the unit had run dry and I lost control of the steering.
