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.

1) my "check engine light" comes on continually. I have had it in three times and have been told it's my gas cap or a loose hose. This is not true, as it came on the 2 and 3rd time, after "repairs" had been done, and I had not refueled the car or driven in poor conditions. Each time the light comes on after I have driven about 75 miles. 2) the lights on the instrument panel randomly fade in and out. 3) after getting the oil changed on 5/24/04, I was down a quart of oil by 6/3/2004. 4)the engine runs very hot and stumbles when I accelerate after stopping. When I called the service center at the dealer to express concern over this, I was told I need to change my oil. I reminded them I had just changed my oil, but I then expressed my concern about engine seizure, which I have learned is not uncommon in this vehicle. I asked what could be done to prevent this. I was told that this doesn't happen to people who change their oil. What happens if the engine does seize, even though I've had regular oil changes" how can I be proactive when the service centers deny the problem even exists"

The check engine lite went on suddently. We had the crank & cam sensor replaced in late May 2004. We were at 37,000 miles. Just out of warranty. We had to pay over $300. The dealership blamed sludge. This can't be the case. The car has been well taken care of. Now the timing belt is going. Again blamed on sludge. We have been told it can die on us at anytime. Chrysler will not accept any responsibility. Why is everything blamed on sludge. There is apparently something else wrong that Chrysler does not want to own up to.

While driving at any speed engine check light came on and stayed on. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, who removed the engine check light sensor. Vehicle had been to dealer six times for this particular problem. Currently, engine check light would not come on even when the key was in the on position. Consumer felt that this might cause more serious problems in the future.

2001 Chrysler Concorde with a blown engine due to sludge and no help what so ever from daimler Chrysler. Left with 2 years to pay and a car that doesn't run. The car has 48,000 miles and is still under warranty and Chrysler is refusing help to settle the incident. Chrysler is stating that the sludge in the engine is due to lack of maintenance by me which is not true. From what research I have done it seems that these engines are known for this problem and Chrysler is doing nothing to fix it or help it. There was no warning, no lights just a car dead in the middle of the street. Someone needs to take responsibility!!!

Concorde 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles
2001 Chrysler Concorde with approximately 22,000 miles. The engine sieze and ceased to function while I was driving with my three children down interstate hyw. I had very littlwe control over my vehicle when this occurred. The engine has always gotten extremely hot during use even on short trips. Chrysler has told me that I did not change the oil frquently enough which caused the engine failure. I think something is inherintly wrong with the engine as it gets extremely hot even after short trips. In fact, the hood of the car gets so hot it can actually burn you when you touch it. I have since learned that this problem occurs with many Chrysler Concordes and Chrysler obviously knows a problem exists that could endanger the lives of consumers.
