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 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Chrysler PT CRUISER. After rainy weather conditions, water enters the vehicle and causes severe leakage on the floor and flooding of the fuse box. The dealer stated that the seam underneath the driver side windshield was not welded properly, allowing fluids to leak into the vehicle, in which they attempted to use the adhesive/rtv/black to repair the seam. This was done several times, but the vehicle has yet to be properly repaired. A formal complaint with the manufacturer. The powertrain was unknown. The failure mileage was 9,000 and current mileage was 51,163.
