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.

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Town and country. The contact noticed that the valve cover cap on the front driver side tire was missing. In addition, the valve stem fractured from the tire and caused the air to remove from the tire rapidly. The contact had to place the spare tire on the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the valve assembly needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.

I was putting air in rear passenger side tire, when valve broke in half. Stem was corroded upon inspection. I also noticed that another stem had been replaced already (I bought the car used) and there was still two original stems that were also corroded and probably needed replacement asap. Mechanic said it was pretty common with Town and country vans.

The valve stem broke off after we went to the dealership to have the tires tests. TPMS was set off by the first stem replacement we had two months earlier. We now have two replacement valves on our Town & Country. I don't even know if the replacement are from the same faulty supplier in china. But the stem are made of the same metal rather than brass. Please get a recall of these items. The manufacturer will do nothing until someone gets hurt and it does me no good to replace them if they continue to use the same faulty parts.

While driving the rear right tire valve broke off and the tire immediately deflated, had my speed been greater or had other cars been near an accident would most likely have happened. While inspecting the valves on the other three tires one more fell off in my hand. We didn't internet search and this problem has happened to many other people. This issue needs to be addressed before somebody gets killed.

While starting to fill the front passenger tire with air, the valve stem portion of the tire monitoring system broke at a point where the tire deflated. Luckily we were parked. The valve stem appears corroded. All Chrysler vehicles with this type of valve stem should be recalled and a replacement (more durable) valve stem installed before the stem breaks off while driving resulting in a severe accident.
