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.

problem #2

May 312008

PT Cruiser

  • Manual transmission
  • 94,000 miles


While driving on the highway the other day, my rear back panel window went flying out and struck the front of another car, dented the hood and destroyed the grill of that car, had to stop on the highway to give insurance information. What a mess, I could not stop immediately, so could not find the part as it went flying off into the side of the highway. My insurance company and the glass repair company had never heard of this happening before.

PT Cruiser

while driving interstate hwy the driver's side back quarter window fell to the pavement. Couldn't retrieve it because 1. I didn't know it had fallen out immediately 2. it would have been smashed to bits by traffic. Neither the dealer nor the company will admit responsibility for this defect. The company wants the window returned to show prove the window failed and they are at fault!
