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.

Town & Country

  • 15,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country van. The front defrost mechanism for her front windshield failed to operate normally. While driving approximately 45 mph and trying to utilize the defrost mechanism in snowy weather, it failed to engage. The ice continued to build up on the front windshield and wipers; however, the defrost mechanism would not help with getting the precipitation off of the front windshield. On a separate occasion, the incident occurred while driving in freezing cold weather. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that there was a design flaw in the defrost mechanism of her year, make and model vehicle. The current and failure mileages were under 15,000.

Consumer states that the defroster on the windshield will freeze the window and wipers from the bottom of the windshield. The consumer was informed the vehicle was performing as designed and there was no defrost around the bottom of the windshield. The dealer told the consumer a heat wire could be installed with a separate switch, but it would be expensive.
