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.

PT Cruiser Limited 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,360 miles


a few months after i purchased the car in 2007. I took my infant to the sitters. normally while the car is running the doors won't lock unless u reach a certain speed. That day the car was in park...all the door unlocked for unloading entertainment for my baby. I returned to the car to retrieve my baby. The doors were locked, keys in ignition, car running....BABY IN THE BACKSEAT!!! The car randomly will lock and unlock itself even today at random times....after you unlock the door, in traffic, even in park with keys in your pocket!!! I know its electrical...dunno where to begin. I almost starting to think its possessed! lets not mention the amounts of money spent on a lock smith!
