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.

Sebring LX 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,000 miles

Coolant leaking from two hoses on top of the engine. Good news is that coolant levels seem normal and have normal color, probably just needs new hoses. Right now just an inconvenience and won't fix since I have other bigger problems to worry about with this car. Purchasing this car was one of the biggest and most expensive mistakes of my life.

Sebring LXI 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles

The dealer led me to believe this was a warranted repair until I gave it the o.k. then conveniently reversed their diagnosis by saying that hoses aren't under warranty. Duh. I could've replaced the things myself for 1/4 of what they charged. NEVER go to a dealer for Non-Warranted repairs...EVER. They're criminals robbing people they put into submission, by taking their cars away for periods of time, making them feel vulnerable. Then returning w/ HEAVILY inflated estimates, playing the Trump card of "I've got you in a corner now".

The almighty HONDA dealer wanted my sister to pay over $700 to replace 1 battery cable. We sabotaged the cable, then took it in to see what they'd say. They came back to her w/ a spread sheet of over $700 in electrical and motor repairs needed. I followed up the next day w/ new cable in hand, and fixed it in less than 10 min. right there on their lot. I went in and described my actions quite loudly in the waiting room. This was NOT received very warmly.
