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.

I would like to file a complaint and have a inquiry opened about a Chrysler and faulty safety device blind spot detection system on one of their vehicles that fails repeatedly time and time again but doesn't have a company recall. I have a active case open with Chrysler and have tried to get them to review this safety feature that fails without notice on perfect mint conditions vehicles Chrysler Town and country minivans. There a very numerous cases of this that has a price tag that is extremely expensive for the part in the car. Two 3" X 3" plastic boxes are over $1100 each and will not work if one fails so both have to be replaced at the same time causing a $2200-$3000 expenditure are very limited mileage on the vehicle.

When backing up I came to a stop. I shifted from reverse to drive. The van felt like it was hit from behind. Something in the transmission causes a hard bang. This happens about 40% of the time. I had it into 2 Chrysler dealers and they say it is normal. They reprogrammed the computer several times to no avail.

We are in the process of purchasing this vehicle and have been told there is a long delay on the ordering of this part (the rear window recall issue) cannot understand if this is a possible fire issue then why are they not being shipped as requested. This makes me very concerned as I Transport children and this could be very dangerous. I have trusted the Chrysler company for many years and have only purchased their vehicles the past 20 years but this has me very nervous. It might be a little thing to them but on a tight budget and finding a nice van to help with the transportation of my family and grandchildren I have questions to the speed in getting this issue resolved.

My van has the safety recall to have there rear quarter vent window switch replaced. I have tried 6 times to bring my van in to have the part replaced and the dealership (hendrick, Chrysler Jeep 543N mcpherson church rd fayetteville nc 28303) said they do not have the parts in and can not order parts. They have also told me they have no way of knowing when parts will come in and when they do come in they cannot hold them. They want me to continue calling and hoping that a part comes on. I have been trying to get this part replaced for several months. There has been no incidents with the part on my van I would just like the part replaced in a reasonable amount of time.

My blind spot detection warning system has stopped working. The indicators on the review mirrors comes on and stay on and I get a message the system is disabled. I went to a Chrysler dealership on April 7th and was told the sensors in the back bumper were bad. I was quoted at least $2,500. To fix this. I called the Chrysler customer service 800 number and was told there was nothing they could do for me. This is further aggravating because I also have a problem with my backup camera. It has not worked since about 37,000 miles. It works fine after 45 seconds but not until then. When I reported this to Chrysler they told me to buy a new radio. While I have a lot of miles on my vehicle, neither of these problems are mileage related. They are both safety issues. I have been driving for 43 years and never had blind spot warning or back up camera systems before so do not plan to pay to fix. They also told me I have to deal with the warning lights going on and off all the time because there is no way to disable. That is distracting. This vehicle is registered to my business and I also use it personally.
