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.

None of the airbags deployed. The accident was on a city street at a "T"intersection with the other vehicle having a stop sign which he failed to observe possibly due to icy conditions on that street.. country club street speed limit 30mph speed of T&C about 25mph. Speed limit on intersecting street 25mph. Speed at impact of second vehicle unknown but due to amount of damage may have been over the speed limit

Car can be driven off with the rear hatch open, with no warning. This led to an animal carrier falling out on the roadway, with a danger to not only the animal, but also to the traffic behind. I have observed other vans in parking lots being driven off with the hatch open and items falling out of the back as they drove off. My Lexus RX300 will ding if a hatch is not secure, but even this is not safe enough. I think a loud warning should be given if the hatch is not secure and car is placed in drive.

While backing vehicle out of driveway, driver noticed thick black smoke coming out of the window button area. Driver opened door out of fear as she was still backing up vehicle. Vehicle struck 2nd vehicle in driveway, a 2010 Honda CRV in back right panel resulting in a dent. Driver placed vehicle in park and ran from vehicle after collision. Called dealership to ask why recall wasn't taken care of when vehicle had been brought into crown motors of holland, mi on November 4, 2014. Dealership notified driver that the part was on backorder but that they had made the error of not disconnecting the part which is what lead to accident and fire.

A 2010 Chrysler Town and country minivan was driving down the road at approximately 35-40 mph. An SUV crossed over the centerline and hit the vehicle in the drivers side door at 40-45 mph. It had enough force to crush the door and tear it from the upper hinge as well as to bend the axel and frame. The vehicle was then pushed laterally into a ditch. When the driver came to, she was trapped in the vehicle, no airbags had been deployed and the vehicle was off. She had to then put the vehicle in park to remove the key and with the help of police she was able to climb out of the trunk. The vehicle was a total loss.

The right sliding door when activated would start to open. When about half way open it would start to shutter and would close again. If someone was starting to get out the door, the door would hit them. The dealership this vehicle was purchased from told me there was nothing wrong with it, but they could fix them for $350 per door. After reading of recall K 14 that Chrysler was campaigning in Oct 2010, I manually moved my wiring harness in the lower door well. This resulted in a temporary fix. Now I must move it periodically to have the door operate properly. Just recently, the left door started to act the same way. My grandchildren have gotten hit by the erratic action several times but never were physically injured. This vehicle has a build date of 08-09. This date falls within the inclusive dates of manufacture of the defect information report for Chrysler group llc recall J27. I believe that this vehicle contains the same defects as those recalled.

The cargo door of the Chrysler Town and country rented from alamo at ke-ahole airport on Jan. 18, 2012 is electric and does not have a warning device or stop sensor when being operated (uncertain of the model year- 2010 or 2011). My wife did not realize the cargo door was closing as she was wearing a hat and walking by it. The door came down on the center of her head causing severe pain. As I am a physician I examined her and made the appropriate decision. We returned the car to alamo rental and I spoke to addis, the manager, who promised to report the accident to his company. Fortunately, as of today my wife is improved but the possibility of subdural hematoma over the next 30 days is still a possibility and she will have to be observed for any developing signs and symptoms. Chrysler is negligent in this matter and should install the appropriate safety devices on all such vehicles.
