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.

Harsh down shifting, results in loud clunking, rear tire squalling, and passenger discomfort. Rough shifting into gears while parked. Moaning brakes, warped rotors fuel pump deficiancies, and miscellaneuos electrical problems.

As a result of a kink in pressure line hose of power steering, vehicle was very difficult to steer in the middle of a turn driving on the highway. Later, in driveway, was not able to steer vehicle at all.

Power steering makes honking noise when turned. Dealer claims that this is unfixable and is due to a power steering fluid surge that causes the hose to vibrate. Chrysler's response is basically to 'live' with it.
