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.

  • 132,000 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Chrysler Town and country. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle shut off and the steering wheel locked. The brake pedal became difficult to depress and all the lights illuminated on the instrument panel. The contact had to shift into the park position to restart the vehicle. Also, there was a knocking noise in the engine. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the catalytic converter was burned and the connecting rod failed. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 132,000.
