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 #4

Sebring JXI V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles


After a heavy rain, my car would flood on the back seat floor. It took forever to find out but after I looked under the car, I could see rust building up. I used a screw driver to pry the two pieces apart and it was fixed no more water in the car.

Sebring JXI 2.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

The convertible top leaked on this car since the day I bought it, making it smell like mildew. It only had 50,000 miles on it. Even in a rather light rain this car will leak. The only solution I could think of is to but a new convertible top for it, but that is rather pricey and who is to say it wouldn't leak rather quickly also. I am rather disappointed in the craftsmanship of this vehicle.

I have to wet vac the rear floors after a heavy rain. I can hear water sloshing around in the quarter panels. The trunk is dry. I have seen the water come in to the front passenger floor from under the front fender panel when I was driving, but usually the water collects in the rear floor. How do I get this fixed????? Except for this, my car has been GREAT!!!!!
