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.

2006 T&C rotors/pads needed replacement at 21,000 claims van is heavy and I was lucky to get that much mileage! shouldn't Chrysler put a proper brake in their "heavy" van or at least design the replacement brake to end this problem? $30,000 van-and I see that this is a common problem. Very disappointed in the lack of quality control.

I was driving my elderly parents around seattle when I started noticing that my front brakes were grinding, took the vehicle to les schuab to have it looked at and found that my pads were gone, metal to metal with the rotors. There were only 22,000 miles on the car at the time and failure of the brakes was premature. It was also noted by the mechanic that the pads installed by the factory did not have wear indicators to let the driver know when the brakes were going bad. Front brakes were replaced and the rear brakes were cleaned, rotors were salvageable.

Heavy wear on brakes. At approx 13,000 miles we had to replace the brakes due to wear. The dealer said it was the norm these days due to newer brake materials and our Chrysler T&C being a heavy vehicle. I don't think brakes should wear out at 13000 miles. Please monitor this issue.

I bought my 2006 Town and country 9/05 it has 15,000 miles on it we had to change the brakes, when my husband took them off, the drivers side was metal to metal when the passenger side still had 1/2 a pad left. I love my van but the company where I bought it from is another story.
