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 #3

Sebring LX 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


Battery light went on and had it tested at Wal-Mart. They said it was just the battery of course and not the alternator, as if they'd know. So I replaced the battery and the light went on again. Bought the replacement alternator myself and had a private mechanic replace it for only $160 total. However if you go to a chain store they wanted $260 just for the alternator not including labor. It sucks when an alternator goes out at 90,000 miles when the ones you buy at the store all have a lifetime warranty.

This car sucks!

Sebring LX 3.0

replaced my alternator twice. since purchasing this car from an out of state dealer, i have had nothing but problems since i bought my 2nd chrysler sebring. My first car, i had no problems and no complaints, but unfortunately i was in a wreck in which my car was totaled, mileage on that car was @ 90k. I would buy a chrysler again, b/c they are definitely in my opinion greatly made vehicles, BUT ONLY FROM A DEALER W/ AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. I wouldnt ever purchase from ebay or and out of state dealer again.
