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.

During normal driving the transmission torque converter failed which tehn resulted in a transmission pump failure. Vehicle became undriveable. Transmission required total build. Vehicle had only 56K miles and was never used to tow anything. Per dealer, Chrysler denied any responsibility and refused to offer financial assistance.

Consumer states that while driving the torque converter "came apart" causing the transmission to fail. The manufacturer offered consumer $500 toward the total repair bill as a "goodwill" gesture.
