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.

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.

While traveling southbound on Texas state highway 195 approximately 5 miles South of florence, Texas I engaged my vehicle passing gear and passed another southbound vehicle. I reentered the southbound lane and took my foot off the accelerator. The vehicle continued to accelerate and at approximately 85 mph, I began applying braking pressure on the brake pedal. I continued to apply and release braking pressure and was able to maintain control of the vehicle and the speed at around 85 mph. There were no other vehicles traveling southbound in front of my vehicle and after approximately.2 mile, the passing gear released and the remainder of the trip was unremarkable. I am a retired military aviator and retired police chief. I was also an faa certified flight instructor (multiple rating both fixed wing and rotary wing. I was always taught to, and also taught students to maintain control of the aircraft (vehicle). I'm certain this training and experience helped me in this situation.

Chrysler"S best kept secret, flaws in the cylinder heads of their new 283 hp V6 engine. The engine over heats at highway speeds, mine ran as high as 244 degrees F. and the ac would not work on a hot day and a long trip. The dealer did not know about this problem. I went on the internet and for $56 I knew all about it in 5 minutes. If I had known about the problem ahead of time I would not have spent $32,000 for the head ache. I showed my information to the service manager and he called me and told me I was right! now he has to find new improved heads. As of this date I have been without my automobile for a week ! I emailed Chrysler an all I got back was a form letter telling me they were sorry and to see my dealer. This is my last Chrysler after a long relationship. From past experiences the engine will never be the same as a factory built engine!
