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.

The problems we had with the windows, going down by itself and then not being able to get them up was reported to the dealer (tomkinson Dodge) twice. The first time, they said they fixed it, but it wasn't. the second time, the window went down by itself, we couldn't get it up. Reported to dealer (tomkin Dodge), they told us to take door panel off and pull window up until they could get to it. The inside window cable was so badless twisted and tangled, it was about to broke. They worked on it, again saying it was fixed. Window again went down (I don't remember the time span after being "fixed". so this time we took it to evans chrsler-Plymouth-ddoge in kendallville to be fixed. They replaced all the window regulators, and have had no problems with the windows since. There was a object rattling around in the rear hatch when closing it that tomkin Dodge could not seem to fix, but evans did. The vehicle also uses a lot of oil in between oil changes, we changethe oil every 2000 miles and would have to put 3 or 4 quarts in between changes. Took it to evans for this problem on Feb. 7, 2000, in which they replaced four gaskets; intake manifold pkg.,throttle body, thermostat, cleaned combustion chamber and also repaired the hood hinges. We will see if this takes care of the problem. I think for a $30,000 vechicle that it should hold up better than it has. There also seems to be a problem when driving on wet pavement. It sides around then stopping and taking off. Have not had this checked out yet.

The power window motors/regulators have failed on all 4 windows repeatedly. Repairs under warranty have been done, however after approx 2 months the windows fail to go up or down..... during low speed braking the front disc brakes make a grinding noise, the problem is continuous and the dealership says all items are within specifications.

Electrical system suddenly went out all gauges radio etc front area. Checked all fuses and nothing was burnt out. Restarted engine four times before reset and then was ok. Have had recurring locking of brakes and grinding lose of control at low speeds and on wet roads. Disc brakes have no wear indicators on pads and it resulted in being worn down and ate into the front rotors before I was aware that the pads were shot. I had to buy new rotors and pads and the replacement pads also did not have indicators. The dealer stated that was the way that they were manufatured and I then stated that this was a severe and potentially dangerous and deadly oversight and that it should be corrected. I contacted Chrysler and they stated that they had no recall on this and that they had no technical problems or bulletins on this. My battery also suddenly went out without any warning and it caused the engine to die. I could not restart the engine and a new battery had to be installed. Power windows went out and could not be opened or closed by drivers switch.
