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.

PT Cruiser LX 42lV6

  • Automatic transmission

I had a 2001 PT Cruiser paid $13,000 for it, too much for a used PT when a new one cost only $8000 more. A recall on rack and pinion, it broke one Sunday morning on my way to work. Thank God i was not hurt, could have been dead. The car lot told me it costs four thousand to get it fixed. only owe $4000 on this car, Need some one to fix it or get me another car to transport to work.
