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.

While driving the vehicle for the 2nd day after ownership (purchased used from Honda of bowie in bowie, md) and we were leaving the parking lot on vacation when the car stopped. It was warmed up, it was working and then it just stopped while I was driving. My husband, and 3 kids (1 1/2, 3 months and 11 years old) were in the vehicle. Noone was behind us and we were able to get the car to start again. However, this was just the beginning of a series of shut-offs to come. Since that initial shut-off the vehicle has stopped several times on the highway, in the neighborhood, while on the busy street of Washington, DC, in the snow, in dry weather, raining, while on the road with cars behind me...and more. I am afraid for the safety of my family, myself and those other vehicles around me. When the car shuts off, the power steering stops and I immediately have to manually get the car to a safe position before I can restart the vehicle.

I was returning to work after a dinner break and the motor suddenly turned off as I was driving. I verified the engine was off by looking at the tach. Which read 0 RPM. Since I was in a large parking lot without many vehicles, I brought the vehicle to a stop. I then turned off all the accessories, radio, heater fan and tried to restart the vehicle. It restarted on the first try. After restarting the vehicle I drove around for a few minutes and everything seemed fine. Several hours later I drove the vehicle home and have not experienced the issue since this night. Several weeks earlier the day after I bought the vehicle the vehicle felt as if it lost power (steering became hard) and I pulled to the side of the road and stopped. I could not hear the engine, unfortunately I did not look at the tach. I turned the ignition to the off position and restarted the vehicle.

Upon starting the car, particularly on damp and/or cold mornings, the electrical system goes haywire. There is no power to the dash, the headlights blink on and off, the locks stop working, the wipers go on by themselves and remain on for the duration of the event. This happens whether the car is parked or in motion. It is not known whether this is impacting the air bags; the fuel gauge reads zero, so it's not known if this will impact the car's ability to continue running; it is also a major distraction if trying to drive. The duration varies, from one minute to 20 minutes. This youtube video shows the exact same thing happening on another 2010 Town and country; the owner in the video reports that it was brand new at the time: Https://www.youtube.com/watch?V=otntkk0kx5Y.

Van unexpectedly shut down completely. Idle at red stop light, noticed traction control sensor was stuck on even though road conditions were normal, no rain, no snow so didn't think much of it. Seconds past, stop light turned green, went to drive via giving the car gas and nothing happened, brakes weren't being recognized, steering was extremely tight. Realized at that point that the van completely shut down (in drive! ignition on!) was able to coast to the side. Turned ignition to off, restarted. Now afraid to drive because I don't understand what happened. I could have totally been rear ended since this happened so suddenly. I was lucky to not be on a major street or roadway. Now I am getting no answers from Chrysler Corp. I feel its part of this revised L25 recall I seen on NHTSA.
