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.

The airbag light and chimes would come on whenever a passenger would sit in the front passenger seat. Codes B1B56 and B1B54 came up. The seatbelt buckle was faulty and needed to be replaced for $267.

Having issues with airbag/seatbelt light coming on & the dinging- pd. $98. 1st time, took back 2 more time, still not fixed, said warranty is up & does not cover electrical... they cannot find problem & seem not to be interested in trying.. suggest I put new seatbelt in at my expense of $500. To me this is a driving hazard when U have this alarm going off every 20 sec, it can be a driving hazard.... 2007 PT CRUISER - called Chrysler & they will not work with me on this, is getting very frustrating when U buy a new car & have these kinds of problems.

We own a 2007 PT CRUISER, a 2007. This is the second PT CRUISER that we have bought. My husband and his friend, who was driving at the time, had an accident on January 21, 2009. They swerved to keep from hitting a dog and they hit a guardrail almost head on and again the air bags did not deployed and the shoulder straps did not catch. This is the second time that this same thing has happened to us in a wreck with our PT CRUISER. We owned a 2003 PT CRUISER, I had a wreck on April 18, 2008, the air bags did not deploy, and the shoulder strap did not catch, as a result, it threw me forward and caused a bad injury to my left shoulder. I stopped at a red light and a car rear-ended me at approximately 50 mph. It threw me forward into the steering wheel and I injured my left shoulder where I had my hand resting on the steering wheel. I had to have surgery and I feel that this would not have happened if the shoulder strap had caught when the collision happened. I feel that this could be a bad problem with the PT CRUISER. Have you had any other reports of this sort of problem?

I was in a car in September of 2007. I was driving a 2007 PT CRUISER. I rearend a truck infront of me doing approximately 30-35mph. My safety belt didn't lock and my air bags did not deploy. Needless to say my head hit full force into the steering wheel. Road conditions where dry. It was just stop & go traffic bumper to bumper. I just didn't react fast enough. I was told that the sensor for the air bag was located in the center of interior dash console.
