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.

2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 262012

PT Cruiser GT Turbo V4

  • Manual transmission
  • 55,560 miles


A car with less than 56,000 miles on it needed a new alternator?! No local part available, mechanic found one in Indianapolis! Took a week to get it diagnosed, find part, get part and get it in. Alterator costs over $400! This is the latest in a string of mechanical failures this car has experienced. Will be reporting previous ones in a bit.
