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.

Turn signal lamp on both mirrors defective. Cover comes off exposing the electrical board with the lights. Both sides not functioning. This appears to be a common issue on the internet. We have a Chrysler maximum care plan which it the best warranty Chrysler offers but this part is not covered. This item is for added safety but not functioning and I'm concerned exposed electrical boards to the weather could cause a short or fire.

The automatic sliding door closes on it own. When you open the power sliding door in any of the 4 available ways, the drivers overhead button, door post button, pulling and releasing the door handle or with the key fob button the passenger sliding door opens goes all the way to the full open position and then closes on its own. This is now happening every time the door is opened.

Arriving in a parking lot, I parked my car, opened the trunk door, and began to unload a stroller and other items out. I walked around the vehicle to get my 3 year old out of her seat. I instructed her to wait by her door. I began to walk around the vehicle to get my 2 year old out when I heard the trunk door slam down. I instructed my daughter back into her seat and began to evaluate the situation. I could not secure the trunk door properly and so I drove to auto repair shop, who managed to take shock out claiming they were good but noticed it broke off the vehicle. However, he could not secure the vehicle. Drove to another auto shop who then was able to secure my back door and commented how lucky we were not to have been severely injured for the reason that the back door is extremely heavy. As of now, I am in shock of what could of happened especially because my daughter always always helps me unload.

While vacuuming out my car, the rear lift door fell onto my head. No major injury but could have been. Replaced rear door struts which cost me $199.26 total. This should have been covered by the manufacturer as this car is only 28 months old. No excessive use of door. We are two 60+ year olds. These had to be defective parts. We checked with the Chrysler dealer we purchased it from and they told us it was not covered and their was no recall.

With vehicle parked on a slight incline with engine toward downhill, the very heavy power sliding doors release and slam shut when closing. If the path of the sliding door is interrupted (pull the door handle while door is in motion and power door system disengages immediately), power door system just lets the door go. Power sliding door system should either open the door or hold it in an half way opened position, instead it releases the door to gravity. Anyone caught in that slamming door would be seriously injured.

On Saturday Nov 3, 2012 children were entering vehicle through power sliding door. Older child bumped into door as it was opening, pushing it further open. Door then shut and latched rapidly (four seconds) on toddlers hand, requiring visit to emergency room and treatment. On Monday Nov 5, 2012 we went to the dealership where we bought the van, and they said it is operating as designed. The door is designed to shut and latch rapidly if you bump it or try to push it open while it is opening. They showed me another van that is designed same way. I tested my friends Toyota and Honda vans and those doors rightly open if you bump or push them while door is mechanically opening or closing. All motorized van doors require special awareness, but Chrysler doors are unsafe. Hoping for recall so they can fix safety issue for everyone and no one else is injured.

I started our 2011 Chrysler Town & Country, stepped on the parking brake pedal to release the brake. When I got to 65 M.P.H. the hood started shaking. I realized that when I released the parking brake that my toe must have tripped the hood release lever. This is a safety design flaw in that the hood release lever should not be located directly above the parking brake pedal. I called the Chrysler customer assistance center at 800-247-9753 to report this problem 7-6-2012. The reference number is [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Engine noise. Compared to our old van, the sounds from the new van engine are louder. I noticed when we bought the 2011 van in January, that it does not have a sound insulated hood. Today when driving a 2010 loaner T&C - from the local dealer when our transmission was being serviced - the 2010 has a piece of insulation on the underside of the hood. The 2011 model does not have this insulation and is noisier. Is this a cost cutting effort? nothing like trying to please customers to help future sales.
