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 contact owns a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible. While driving 75 mph on the freeway, the engine shut off and the vehicle lost all power. The contact pulled the vehicle over and had it towed to an independent mechanic. After inspecting the vehicle, the mechanic noticed sludge build-up. He also observed leaks in the head gasket and radiator, and engine and transmission failure. The contact feels that the vehicle is unsafe to drive because a crash could have occurred on the freeway. The current and failure mileages were 98,000.

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.
