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.

I've owned my Sebring coupe for 2 years. the alternator was completely ruined over very slight water damage. the engine inside the Sebring is foreign and is built stupid, the Sebring alternator is on the bottom right corner of the passenger side of the vehicle. you have to remove it from underneath the car and work from the top and you have to remove at least 3 other coverings over the alternator AND REMOVE THE AXEL just to get to the alternator to remove it! i haven't even seen it get put back on yet...its a costly repair, money and time consuming and very tedious...its just a problem with the way the engine is built. the alternator and a lot of other main components on the car are built in a way that you have no choice but to take your car to a shop for repairs because even the simplest thing needs the most complicated tools and is hard to remove. Sebrings have, unfortunately, very cheap foreign engines inside them.
