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.

2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Owner Comments

Have a 2008 PT CRUISER. I had a issue with transmission. I was told by mechanic that there is a alert that the car needs a computer software update ($150). Car is shaking. Was told that this happens to all the PT CRUISER that several bushing around the engine very fast wear out. Passenger window sometimes does not go all the way up. These are safety issue that Chrysler knows about but do not do anything. It is not like battery or tire that wear out. Do they want to people get injured or die before they do anything?
