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.

problem #3

Town & Country

  • 75,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that while driving 55 mph, the windshield wiper failed. The windshield wiper was replaced at least three times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who advised the contact that the windshield wiper motor needed to be replaced. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number: 06V067000 (visibility: Windshield wiper/washer: Motor) but was advised by the dealer that the vehicle was not included in the recall. The manufacturer was notified of the failure who confirmed that the vehicle was not recalled and provided no further assistance. They offered no other assistance. The failure mileage was 75,000.

The switch that operates the turn signals, the wiper/washer, and the high/low beams fails as such: When signaling left at times the right indicator comes on, and visa versa. When operating the wiper "on" switch, nothing happens until you signal or use the high/low beam part of the switch. When trying to lower my headlight beams the switch will at times fail to lower them until a separate action happens with the switch. All of these failures are sporadic, and will appear apparently when there is moisture in the air through rain or fog. (when you would not want them to happen at all). These are safety recalls I am asking for because the dealership, even though we have an extended warranty says they cannot do anything unless they see it happen. Most of this happens after hours or when the dealership is not open. I have had the vehicle to the dealership on three separate times. A recall would cause them to be obligated to do the repair. After researching this problem on the web have found many 2006 Town and country minivan owners have experienced the same issue. Please issue a recall on these. I am sure other years are affected because that switch is widely used.

I was driving on the highway in my mini van when the right side rear panel window exploded. Sounded like a gun shot. The window was gone. I pulled over out shear fear and a truck with two men following behind me witnessed the explosion and pulled over as well to make sure I was ok. They remarked they have never seen anything like it. This was in 2007 with approximately 20,000 miles on vehicle. I went to dealership and had window replaced. Well it happened again yesterday 5/20/2011. Close to 4 years later with about 79,000 miles on the vehicle. My husband was driving the vehicle, I was in front passenger seat, my dad behind me and my child in the far back seat. The same window exploded, again sounded like a gun shot. The window exploded and my child seated in the far back but luckily seated by the left side rear panel covered her head and face from the explosion. Thank goodness she was not next to the window that exploded. In both cases when that same window exploded there was no type of weather conditions happening. Just quiet calm day. The dealership is doing nothing about it since they have no other record of this occurring with other mini vans. The dealership basically is saying just to replace the window once again. I am not comfortable with this resolution for I think there is something terribly wrong and it is not safe. I worry about other families and their Town and country mini vans especially since this is where most children sit. I do not trust that window now.
