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.

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

May 022008

PT Cruiser

  • 140,085 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Chrysler PT CRUISER. The contact parked the vehicle and when he pulled the brake handle up, it went all the way to the top. There was no braking ability. He purchased a parking equalizer and clip because the cable was burned and frayed. He was informed at that time that he had to purchase the entire braking system assembly (lever, grip, handle) rather than just the 8 to 10 inch equalizer cable and clip. The VIN was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 140,085.
