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.

I have a Chrysler Sebring lxi 1998 with 17 in. Low profile wheels currently 64,000. I notice that city driving has been extremely hard on my wheels. The first year that I had it, the rims bent under regular road travel. The inability to handle regular driving appears to be to uncommon and I felt that I must file a complaint before this goes unnoticed.

I have had 4 flat tires since I purchase the vehicle less than a year ago. At first I thought it was the tires, but after the fourth flat, and seeing other complaints on this website, I realized it was the car. The rims bend, releasing air and the tires go flat. Then the rim wrecks the tire, and bends further. Essentially, it is a car that can't even be driven. The previous owner had to also replace all 4 tires but didn't tell me until later, and sold the car to me with only 10,000 miles on it. At $200 a peice, it really adds up. I have contacted Chrysler and they continue to drag their feet. I feel these cars should be re-called, especially after hearing the numerous complaints from other Sebring owners having the same problems. (tiresize: 2155017)( dot number: Tire size: 2155017 )

In 2.5 yrs I have had 5 rims bend resulting in blown tires. Very poor design. Chrysler needs to handle this before somone gets hurt or dies!!! and it is very expensive!!! (tiresize: P215/50R17)( dot number: Tire size: P215/50R17 )

Side molding fell off on the freeway. Brakes vibrated. Dealer said it was normal wear. Rims have bent several times. Front end was very low to the ground. Engine died becuase serpentine time belt came off, causing engine to cease. Dealer tried to repair problem, but it still squealed. Dealer couldn't remedy the problem.
