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.

I was driving through town when I smelled something like rubber burning, saw smoke billowing out from passenger front side of car. I immediately pulled off of road, turned car off & looked to see what was causing this. No leaks of any kind. My mechanic is in the process of repairing my pt. The front passenger brake seized & burned up my caliper, rotor & brake pads. It was so hot, it literally melted parts. I came close to a major fire & it was a good thing I was not on a highway. I hope this does not happen again. I do not know if there were any recalls on this vehicle due to brake problems- but I would like to know as I feel this is a major safety issue.

I had my 2007 PT CRUISER for 6 months and the horn would stick and not turn off. The steering wheel and airbag were defective and replaced. My front brakes and rotors also had to be replaced at this time.

I was driving the car and the car started pulling and making a scraping noise, I took the car into Chrysler and they did an oil change and said I'd need brakes and had worn shocks> I told them I thought that was unusual for a car with only 19K on it. I told them I wanted a second opinion, I took the car that day to midas, they confirmed the right break was shot and was the rotor but the rest were fine, and the shock was not worn but leaking. I called Chrysler and told them they were mistaken and if they were doing there job they would have notice that a month earlier when the car was in there for tire rotation. The brakes were R fixed for $354 and Chrysler wanted me to send the receipt when they quickly denied. The car has a lifetime warranty on it, and I understand the 1yr etc on brakes..but if I drove the car normally it would have shown up, ,and this was not wear (I kept the used parts) and the shocks not worn. I bought the car brand new and wondering if it was damaged on the lot or something...
