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.

Transmission made a very loud bang and began leaking transmission fluid, consumer was informed that there was a quarter size hole in the transmission case which caused the leak, the transmission would need replaced, upon removal of the torque converter a hole approximately 7- 8 inches long by 6 inches wide was found in the case wall between the transfer case and the bell housing, the mechanic pointed out that a permanent retaining pin which held a larger pin in place had sheared off and sent the larger one through the case wall, this pin is not designed to be serviced and there was no way to adjust or even diagnose the problem prior to its failure, consumer states that this is a design flaw and is furious that Chrysler will not provide him any assistance.

Consumer heard a loud bang almost like hitting a bump. After parking vehicle there was a puddle of transmission fluid on ground. Vehicle would start up, but wouldn't drive. Chrysler wouldn't cover cost. Customer service agent was very rude.
