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.

2009 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 172010

Town & Country

  • 14,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Chrysler Town and country. The vehicle was parked with the rear lift gate open when the contact activated the automatic lift gate close button from the vehicle interior. The lift gate was slow to close and the contact attempted to assist by manually closing the lift gate. While pulling the lift gate downward, it began to involuntarily reopen until heavy force was used. Since the failure, the contact stated there were abnormal noises coming from the lift gate when opening or closing. An authorized dealer was notified and the contact was informed that he would have to pay to have the lift gate repaired. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 14,000.
