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.

Fuel line has begun leaking fuel every time you start the car. Have replaced fuel line and continues to leek. Searched on the internet and there is no real fix and Chrysler plastic connection was a poor build making this an issue for almost every PT CRUISER out there.
