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 #2

Jan 202011

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • 46,440 miles


With no warning and no apparent cause, the rear driver side quarter window detached from the car while driving on the interstate. Since I was unaware of what exactly happened at the time (I just heard a noise and felt some wind) I did not stop and am unaware of what if any property damage may have occurred to other cars as a result. Closer examination shows that the glass separated from the bolts that held it to the car. It looks like there is a recall for this problem on later PT CRUISER models (07V149000), but that does not apply to 2002 models.
