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.

PT Cruiser

  • 39,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler PT CRUISER. The contact stated that while traveling approximately 45 mph, she experienced two tire blowouts on two separate occasions. The first blowout was on the rear driver side and the second was on the rear passenger side. The dealer replaced the rear passenger side rim and determined the rim was the actual cause of the tire failure. The other 3 rims were not replaced because the dealer advised there were no defects found on the rims. The contact experienced two additional tire blowouts due to the failure. The vehicle was left with the dealer where the contact was awaiting repairs and a diagnostic of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 39,000 and the current was unknown.
