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.

PT CRUISER hydraulic clutch not working properly in hot weather. Dealer tries to replace entire clutch and says they will not do anything else until they do the $1400 clutch job. Problem lies in either slave cylinder or improper bleeding at factory and at dealer on mine when they changed clutch, shifter cables, transmission and slave cylinder and still does it. Problems makes it almost impossible to shift into 1st and 2nd gear when hot. Works in early morning or cold weather.

2007 Chrysler T cruiser. Clutch fails to disengage resulting in driver being unable to shift gears on the manual transmission and resulting in difficulty in stopping the car. This problem is a result of the pressure plate failing and is not covered by the power train warranty even though pressure plate failure is almost unheard of in most cars. Most owners are unaware of the actual cause and try repairing the hydraulic portion of the clutch system. This appears to be a fairly common problem in the PT CRUISER when one checks on the internet and should possibly result in a recall of these vehicles.
