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.

Magnum 8-cyl

This car went in for a cooling fan recall in late July. At the same time, the 60,000 mile transmission service was completed. I began having trouble with how it shifted almost immediately on an irregular basis. We left on vacation a week later and just returned Sept. 8th. I noticed the transmission was worse, so I called the garage to take it in. I was just told that the torque converter is bad, probably because of a water leak in the dipstick. The service guy told me that Chrysler has had this same problem on many cars. My suspicion: Why did it go out immediately after being serviced at ross Chrysler in boone, nc. If there are multiple water leaks, Chrysler should be sharing with the cost ($1600) to replace the converter. Am I being taken advantage of because I am a senior citizen. Add water to the transmission while being worked on, and it ruins the converter.
