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.

Town & Country

  • 30,059 miles
The rear-liftgate of our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country slammed shut on April 11, 2014. Thankfully, we weren't underneath it at the time. Both struts gave out at the same time. We took it in for service on April 12, 2014 and I described to the service manager how dangerous this problem might be, should someone be under the liftgate. That liftgate is 400 lbs., coming down rapidly and slamming shut. He noted that he would discuss it "up his chain" at Chrysler and advised that I discuss my concern when I get surveyed from my service call. I've yet to be surveyed, so he provided me with your contact information. I am fearful that someone may get seriously hurt by this slamming liftgate. For us, we will no longer walk underneath the liftgate as it is raising up, until it is fully open and stopped.
