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.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager Owner Comments

problem #3

Consumer states she parked her auto and left the auto running to pick up her kids, her 3 year old ran out in front of her and got in the auto, and pulled the gear shift causing it to roll back hitting a house and fence. No one was injuried. Consumer states she is upset because the child just pulled the shift indicator and her foot could not have reached the brakes. She also states that she did not know that this could be done.

Vehicle rolled backwards down consumer's driveway while vehicle was in park, no emergency brake in use. Driveway had a slight incline, and vehicle rolled approximately 15 to 20 feet before he could stop it. Also, there was no shift interlock system present in vehicle. Dangerous if a child were to play in vehicle. Please provide any additional information/attachments.
