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

I have owned my 2002 PT CRUISER since may of 2002. Since the beginning, I have had trouble fueling up the tank. After about 3-5 gallons of gasoline has filled the tank, the hose shuts off. Begin again and it shuts off. This happens an average of 8-10 times during the fueling. The dealership tells me that it's because the opening to the tank has been made smaller to avoid splashbacks outside of the car. It is a royal pain everytime I gas up. Is there no solution?
