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.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler PT CRUISER. The contact stated that two weeks after purchasing her vehicle, the accelerator pedal and steering column began to vibrate. The failure occurred while driving 35 mph. The more she accelerates, the more they vibrate. She took the vehicle back to the dealer and they replaced the front axle. The contact stated that the accelerator pedal and steering column continued to vibrate and the dealer was unable to find any failure. On her next visit to the dealer, she was told that her vehicle was out of warranty and she should have returned sooner. She returned to the dealer four different times for the same failure. The engine size was unknown. The current mileage is 37,263 and failure mileage was 22,000.
