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.

2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012004

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


The wheels are cast aluminum with a metal chrome plate put on it, allowing air leakage around the rims. There was corrosion between the wheels and axle. A mechanic told the consumer that he had seen other similar vehicles with the same problem. There was a high chance that the wheel and axle will separate. The problem first started on December of 2004. There have been no accidents as of yet. Updated 12/07/05.
