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.

problem #1

May 012012

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • 35,247 miles
While driving my 2008 PT CRUISER home, all of the dashboard lights came on at one time and stayed on for the ten minutes it took me to get home. They came on again briefly two more times for no known reason. I searched the internet and found several possible solutions, wrote them down and I took the car in to the Chrysler dealer in escondido, California. The dealer was unable to replicate the symptoms after checking everything on the vehicle so there was no repair made. I took the car home. Again in may, 2012, the car's instrument panel lights came on all at once and briefly while driving home. This is an extremely unsafe issue for consumers to deal with and I also urge an investigation and recall of the instrument panels on the 2008 PT CRUISER.
