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

I have had nothing but trouble with my 2005 Chrysler PT CRUISER, but the final straw is when, after filling the gas tank and starting it - the car backfired and blew the plugs. Cost to replace $2,900. This happening right after I spent $1,400 to replace bushings and tie rods. Chrysler corporate asked me to take it to one of their dealers in which I did. Chrysler corporate nor the dealer will discuss the factory defect stating no know reason for a vehicle to blow two plugs when it only has 81,000 miles on it.
