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 #2

PT Cruiser 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles


I love the look of the car and the interior capacity but the mechanical problems just do not make it worth owning this car for an everyday vehicle.

This is the 3rd time since I purchased this car in September 2004 that there is a problem with the control arms. This is defective engineering and design. I will never buy another Chrysler product again!

service center said this is not uncommon on PT cruisers - shouldn't there be some kind of recall if this is happening alot? My car only had 38K!
