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. Notes: The 2006 is the worst year for PT Cruiser engine complaints. Having an engine light on is annoying, but it's the complaints about the engine shutting-off while driving that really have us concerned.

I have had this 2006 PT CRUISER for over a year and a half. Within that year and a half, I have now had to replace the tires, brakes. The air conditioner just went out. This car has been horrible. I can't blow the horn without pounding it. The lamp assemblies hold moisture, the thing drinks gas and right now with gas prices this is a problem. Yet, nobody wants me to trade it because it isn't worth a penny because nobody wants them. They need to recall the fact they lied on the stickers about gas mileage. I may get 17 miles per gallon. Horrible car. I hope people stop buying them until they fix the problems they already have.
