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.

While driving my car has turned off due to the recall on the win module over 6 times now. Thank god I was driving at a low speed on a side street each time. I lose all power and the vehicle completely turns off. I do not feel safe in this car. I hope your conscience can withstand possible crashes and people losing their lives because your piece of [xxx] company has had over a year to fix this and has not.

While in for warranty replacement of front wheel bearings, dealer reported "weapage" at the seam on fuel tank. Estimated repair at $800 plus labor. Defect would appear to me to be safety (fire) caused by manufacturing process.

Vehicle stalled on slow right hand turns. Happened 5 or 6 times. Electrical system appeared to be dead, no dashboard lights and the indicators stopped blinking. Vehicle restarted every time after stopping and putting the transmission into park position. Chrysler 5 star dealer in ellington ct could not find a problem. The vehicle had the ignition key module replaced under warranty prior to this because it died. The dealer didn't think the new module could be the problem.

1. safety defect in the wireless ignition module (ignition) in 2008 Town & Country (touring model). Vehicle will run but most electrical components will not work, including turn signals, windows, remote mirrors, lights, horn seat, door locks, window locks, clock, ac radio and wipers. The result of the defect includes inability to safely operate the vehicle once in motion. Driver is not necessarily aware of the problem until they go to use the horn, lights, or turn signal. Chrysler denied the existence of the problem until I made them come to my home during an episode. 2. defective fuel pump. Vehicle idles extremely high and the entire vehicle vibrates violently. Chrysler replaced the fuel pump yet the safety defect continues. Chrysler denied rearing or feeling the vibration until a Chrysler factory rep was called to thomasville in response to a state of Georgia office of Consumer Affairs lemon law claim. Chrysler replace the pump yet the safety defect continues. 3. severe grinding/scraping noise coming from the rear tenter of the vehicle. To-date, Chrysler denies the noise and has not repaired the problem. I fee the issue os one of a possible fire hazard due to its proximity to the fuel system and unknown defect in the fuel pump.
