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.

: the contact stated a leak was noticed under the transmission when the vehicle was parked. A local independent repair mechanic replaced a shaft seal in the transmission. However, that did not remedy the leak. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair transmission shop were it was determined the transmission needed rebuilt and the differential needed replaced.

My spouse was taking off from the bank when she heard a bang. Auto dealer determined pin broke and went through wall of differential. Auto would not move. Contact with transmission company gained information that they have gotten 1 of these incidents per week. Compnay called was transmission supply in eau claire, wis. I would think this to be a major concern should this happen going at high speeds. Please inform me of any information available or record this incident. Chrysler did offer to pay all but $500 dollars even though my warranty went off approximately 6 weeks ago. Thanks

From what I understand this is a common failure in these vans. This pin in the transmission breaks and shoots through the transmission housing. This is a manufacturing defect that Chrysler should correct. This is going to cost me $2000. Who's to say this won't happen again.recall these vans and fix this problem!
