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.

Car will turn over but not start. Had it towed to a dealer while away from home on a family road trip. After several hours of waiting the dealer said the problem was a fault with the tipm and that it would need to be replaced at a cost of over $1100 dollars. I have no other alternative, but what an expensive repair.

Report on behalf of customer vehicle. Customer was involved in a collision to the rear of her 2011 Town and country. Moderate speed collision, damage to bumper and rear body panel. The vehicle is equipped with active restraint headrest system designed to deploy forward and upward to prevent injury due to occupant head moving backwards in rear collision. Active restraint system failed to deploy in the collision; however, approximately ten days later while operating the vehicle during normal conditions, the headrests deployed, striking the driver in the back of the head. Driver did not lose control of the vehicle.

This minivan is equipped with a factory installed, electric 3rd row seat. It is a split (2/3 -1/3) configuration. The switches to control these seats are on the left rear panel just inside the door jam. The options are: Stow, normal or rear facing. You can control one or both seats for each option by use of the rocker switch position. Both seats were in the normal (upright) position and luggage was stored behind the seat. A child seat was sitting on the left side of the rear seat. When rounding a turn, a piece of luggage fell into the switch panel and the seat started to stow, it was compressing the child seat. I was shocked that it didn't stop or reverse itself as a friction clutch would. I.e like one of the 3 electric doors on this vehicle would. Instead the motors kept turning and skipping on their gears (machine gun sound). Trying to shut off the switches had no effect. This is a crushing hazard.
