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.

Took my pt to dealer in New Smyrna Beach,Fl was told it wasn't a manf problem that they knew of & no literature had come out about it.Of course later on it had to do with the tape they used on the bumpers.Same old BS you bought it, it's yours now, & we helped them with tax dollars now it's faulty ignitions.I am not surprised they didn't do anything till people died.You kill someone you go to jail, they just say it was an engineering error.
