1) normal use of the vehicle led to 2) the driver's side strut tower rusting and separating under the hood, causing a potentially dangerous loss of control while driving the vehicle 3) I noticed the rusting and separation and I brought the vehicle to a Chrysler dealership to repair with a "strut tower repair kit". this is a very common defect in Chrysler/Dodge minivans from 1996-2000 and there is a technical service bulletin #23-044-02 about the condition and repair. If left undiagnosed and un-repaired, this could cause a vehicle owner to lose control of the vehicle while driving. Due to the # of incidents & repairs, this seems to be a product design defect. Chrysler has refused to pay for or reimburse for the repair.

I am experiencing corrosion penetration of the driver's side strut tower on my 2000 Chrysler Town and country limited minivan. The body of the van including the passenger side strut tower is absent of any corrosion. I just became aware of a service bulletin Chrysler issued on October 14, 2002 for correcting this problem (bulletin # 23-044-02). It seems apparent to me that Chrysler has been aware of this issue for some time and should have as a minimum alerted owners to this potential problem before it magnified itself. I believe Chrysler now should incur the cost for repair of this obvious defect.

While the vehicle was at a body shop, the mechanic informed the consumer that the front strut and the strut tower needed to be replaced. The dealer was not notified.
