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.

Goodyear Eagle ls tires on my 2006 PT CRUISER, I have had 3 sidewall blowouts, the 1st one blew out with less than 400 miles on the vehicle, the second blowout came with less than 15,000 miles and also was in the sidewall, the 3rd blowout came this past Saturday, November 3rd while on the freeway and doing 65mph, all three were sidewall blowouts. The tire size on all 3 were 165/65/R15 within this complaint filing doesn't give me the option to add the other 2 blowouts, but, I have let you know in this paragraph that I have had 3 blowouts of the same oem tires.
