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 problems with this car more than any other new vehicle I've owned. I had ac compressor problems still under warranty... I replaced the alternator and battery at 36700 miles. Now, both front wheel hub and bearing assemblies are shot, and will be replaced at 43,000 miles. I bought this car new, and it is my 3rd and last Chrysler product. I had an 2002 pt, this 2005 cruiser, and I've got an 2006 cruiser that is starting to show signs of wheel bearing issues.

After only 35.5K miles the dealership mechanic informed me that both front hubs and bearings need replacement. An online search revealed many many owners with the same complaint. Unsat!
