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.

2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

No events leading to failure other than noticing the seat heaters seemed to put off more heat than other comparably equipped vehicles. Seat heater burned through seat cover and seat cushion foam into a pillow that had slipped behind my daughters back. If it had not been for the pillow, my daughter would have had serious burn injuries as she was asleep at the time of the malfunction. So far Chrysler has done nothing to correct the problem. The old parts are still in the vehicle. Chrysler has inspected the vehicle and says the seat heater unit itself malfunctioned otherwise the system is normal. However, the drivers seat also reaches temperatures that will cause burns also.
