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 #3

PT Cruiser GT 4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles


Because car was facing its 4th head gasket repair, I never knew about it. I'd been lied to when they said it was a sensor. I couldn't turn on A/C. If I did, it made the car overheat even more. So I had to roll down windows. It was very hot to drive this way. Car was overheating badly.

The Car would blow out cold air when moving but when we were idling it would shut off the A/C.

PT Cruiser 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission

No cool air coming from the A/C. Repaired a leak, added freon and replaced the compressor and condenser. It seems that every time I turn around there is something wrong with this vehicle. Its costing me time and money. The cool air being generated is not as good as my RAV4. I am really wondering if it will fail in the future. Very frustrated.
