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.

2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

May 022008

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler PT CRUISER. While driving 40 mph, the accelerator pedal became stuck and would not release, even after the passenger reached down and attempted to pull it up with her hand. The vehicle was taken to the nearest garage and they stated that the failure was due to the vacuum hose which had a hole in it, which was replaced at that time. The vacuum hose was found in the back of the windshield washer fluid and had rubbed a hole in the hose. When the hose was showed to the dealer, they responded indifferently. The current and failure mileages were 60,000. Updated 5/30/08
