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. Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 082012

PT Cruiser Limited 3.2L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 161,235 miles


Have a 2001 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. When purchased it had 48,000 miles in 2005. Since I have replaced radiator, brake system, re-overhauled the transmission, steering gear, air condition compressor and now I guess a dash. The dash is cracked all across in a vertical position through the vent in the center of the dash and then goes to the left in front of the driver position. I like my little car but it is getting to be expensive to maintain. The only compliant is now the dash.
