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.

2010 Chrysler Town and country. At 75,000 miles right rear tire monitor alarmed and within 5 minutes all air had leaked out. Accident almost occurred but was able to pull off road. Removed tire and took to repair shop. They showed me the fault was a corroded TPMS device. They removed and replaced with non TPMS stem. Very concerned the other 3 will let go in similar fashion. Way too many problems with this noted on various internet sites. Replacement cost is also very high but is forced on people if they want to be safe.

All of the metal valve stems are corroded and cracked, and one of our tires is slowly leaking air as a result. We've been told this is a major safety concern because the valve stem can continue to crack and eventually break, causing rapid tire pressure deflation. The result can be loss of control of the vehicle when the tire blows out and possible catastrophic results. I have noticed several other Chrysler and Dodge minivans in my area with the same problem. I live in syracuse, NY and to combat 115 inches of snow each year, they use road salt. The metal valve stems used by Chrysler do not resist corrosion. I replaced one at the dealer and cost about $250 between the part and reprogramming the tps. This is a potential deadly issue and Chrysler should be forced to recall the faulty valve stems that corrode and crack.

Driving on highway, left rear tire pressure alarmed and went immediately flat, pulled over to the side, took to a service station who said that the metal/aluminum component to the tire pressure sensor valve stem had corroded, when that came off the pressure sensor was sucked into the tire and that was what caused the implosion. They said they see this commonly with these tire pressure sensor gauges that Chrysler uses. I will now have to pay to replace all 4. I have called the dealer twice now, each time I left a message but they said parts department was not in, and would have to call me back. This could have caused a very serious crash as there was very little time for us to get over to the side of the road, but we were luckily in the right hand land and not going full speed. We did not report to police as the state trooper arrived on scene.

The contact owns a 2010 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that while driving approximately 50 mph, he heard a loud noise as the tire pressure monitoring system warning light illuminated. The vehicle was maneuvered to the side of the road where he noticed that the front passenger's side tire had exploded. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic, who informed the contact that the tire pressure senor had malfunctioned. The tire and sensor were replaced. The failure also occurred with the front driver's side tire pressure sensor. The manufacturer was not notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 62,000. Updated 3/5/14

The tire pressure monitor sensors on the 2010 Chrysler Town and country have valve stems that are built into the sensor - they cannot be separated. The valve stems are aluminum, and they break extremely easily. I bought this vehicle (used) in September, and within less than 3 months all four stems have broken. Fortunately, each time I found one of the broken, the van was in my driveway, and they were not leaking air. In every case, the aluminum was badly corroded - something that shouldn't happen on a vehicle that is less than two years old. The stems should have been made from a material that is less likely to corrode, such as rubber.
