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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,100 miles

brakes make loud noise when I first use them in the morning,then it was at anytime of the day so I had breaks replaced and still getting the same noise. Talked to a few people in my area that have pt cruisers and they all say they have the same problem along with 100 other problems as I have. I will never ever buy a pt cruiser again,because everytime you turn around you have a problem and the list just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
