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.

2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 082007

(reported on)

Grand Voyager 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


I was traveling down the freeway at about 75 mph when I felt what can only be explained as a large KACHUNK. The first split second I thought I hit an ice chunk in the road. Then my van sputtered a little bit and I took the next exit. Before I could get to the traffic light, my car was not running. After having a mechanic look at it I was told that my transmission was gone. I began the search for a good transmission mechanic to repair my vehicle and in my search, I was told by numerous mechanics that this is common in Chrysler products. One guy said he repaired 5 in the past 2 weeks. Once my car was in and inspected they found that the differential pin had gone through the casing and caused a softball sized hole in the casing. This will cost $1,800 to repair. The mechanic I went with said that if Chrysler were to put a recall on this problem, it could put them in bankruptcy with all the transmissions they would have to replace. I contacted Chrysler and was told that there is no recall, they won't help and that this is the first time they have heard of this problem. I told them that I will be the one to start the recall if I have too and kindly ended the call. IF THIS HAS HAPPENED TO YOU, PLEASE CONTACT ME. I feel that the only reason they do not know about it is because of their poor customer service, it is causing people to not want to deal with them. I will be contacting Chrysler dealerships in my area to see if I can find the number of times they have had this problem, as well as numbers from independent garages.
