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

Jun 102013

PT Cruiser 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 174,000 miles


Wheel bearings do go bad on all cars. Expected. I have replaced both front disc breaks twice too and ruined rotors. But that is normal wear. Funny, here it is with almost 200,000 miles on it and still the rear brakes are not significantly worn down. They are worn! But could last another 20,000 miles. Still getting 22-23 MPG and we LOVE this car!!! Just NOT whatever is wrong with the electrical system.
