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.

Had Chrysler 2008 Town & Country from 4/24/08 to 7/25/10.had 3 repairs done, and in aug2010 signed for ownership. Had recall on front brakes, took to dealer, who checked front and back brakes. Told dealer there was a "howling" in rear and right rear tire was very hot. Dealer said front brakes appeared ok, but mfg. Did not lubricate rear brakes as they were dry and completely shot. Had to replace rear brakes, rotors and calipers pads for $324. Car had only 16,497 miles and was 2 1/2 years old. Called Chrysler and they said would issue one time refund. Called later and they said would not replace as this was "normal wear and tear". checked on line there were 111 complaints for same car...then they are replaced many times! I would not buy another Chrysler although I had a 2004 for a few years with no problem.

Complaint is on a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. The brake system is junk. My vehicle has 30,000 miles on it and I am in the process of putting front brakes on for the third time. If you count the brakes that come with the vehicle then it is 4 times. I have also replaced the rear brakes. I have owned vehicles in the past and this is the first time that I had to replace brakes let alone three times within 30,000 miles. The first time being 10,000 miles. I drive my child around in this vehicle and I believe that this is unsafe. If you look this problem up on the internet you would be amazed with the many similar complaints. Something really should be done with Chrysler.

I purchased the vehicle in may of 2009. After 3 weeks I noticed noise that sounded like the brakes were bad. I had the vehicle checked on 6/2009, 8/2009, and 12/2009 was told they were fine. And that it was the type of material that is used. 1/27/2010 was told I need new brakes and rotors at 25432 miles. Called dealer/Chrysler to find out about warrenty and was told that is not covered. I thought it had a bumper tp bumper warrenty till 36,000 miles. Dealer lied to me. It is going to cost $650 to fix it. I have done research and found out this is a common problem with the Chrysler products. I also can not get the tire-pressure monitoring system to turn off. I was told the tires are fine.

My 2008 Chrysler Town & Country needs new brakes and the front and rear rotors resurfaced after only 12,000 miles. It does not seem reasonable that the brakes would wear down so quickly.
