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.

Transmission makes noise at 16mph Chrysler is aware of the noise. Chrysler states that they do not have "fix" for it at this time. This is not acceptable to me as a customer of Chrysler. Thank you.

When backing up an slightly inclined driveway my new 2011 Chrysler Town and country (1500 miles) started shuddering like the transmission was failing. In order to back up I had to accelerate beyond what was safe for the tight area I was in. I road tested it on a steep incline and was not able to back up with out a lot of loud noise and shuddering. I took it to my dealer and they agreed that it shuddered when backing up. The dealer tried a new one on the lot and it did the same thing. The dealer contacted Chrysler, who said that their is nothing they could do, because it was "characteristic of this vehicle" I have this in writing from my dealer. I am now stuck with a $40,000 vehicle that can not be used safely at slower speeds in situations involving inclines.
