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.

problem #2

PT Cruiser Limited 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission

I was told there was a recall on something to do with steering. They supposedly fixed it when I had my fuel line repaired. The next day the engine light went on. The code has something to do with steering.

Are there any other recalls on this vehicle. VIN #3CAFY4BB8IT253772.
