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.

The timing chain/guides/tensioner has failed in the vehicle with only 91000 miles on the odometer. I have experienced the oil light coming on at idle and have been told by the dealer that the issue is the sensor. This did not correct the problem.

There were no events leading into the failure. One day it would not start, and upon investigation, there was sludge in the oil pan. That is when I began reading of the thousands of others with the same issue!

Consumer replaced rear defrost on Chrysler Sebring on numerous occasions. The rear defroster does not work. The rear vision glass needed to be replaced. Chrysler offered the consumer a 50/50 split. Also the drivers side window rattled, red fluid was found in the consumer's driveway due to transmission pan and cooler line leakage, the convertible was leaking on the drivers side window area due to weather strip and there was a slow leak in the R/R tire due to a hole.

Car enginge shows normal running temperature but when its at idle blows cold heat. With rpms up it blows hotter air. Been in shop several times with no cases filed in Dodge's database that shows reason for suspision. Even swithced dealerships to no avail. All test ran shows normal but car is about to hit its 75000 mile warrenty so im not sure if they are trying to limp me along for future gains. It started in the fall of 2002 and continues to this day had replaced thermostat flushed cooling system tested pressure but nothing.. ive been told it could be the heater core but thye wont go there unless they have reason to but thats the only thing that hasnt been checked it never overheats etc..great car but just has to keep rpms up for heat.
