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.

2001 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

May 172008

Sebring LXI 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


My 2001 Sebring LXi gave up on me two months ago. There was no indication of trouble, no engine light. I changed my oil religiously. After trip to local mechanic and Chrysler service department (by towing at my expense), it was determined I had a blown head gasket, water in the oil, the timing had 'jumped', I had metal shavings in the gas and fuel pump (which went out also). In short the car is toast. I bought a Toyota. Now my other car, a 2004 Sebring, is having problems. Chrysler dealer, a different one, tells me I need a new cam shaft position sensor (sounds a little liked 'jumped timing' doesn't it!). This car has about 48 K on it. I'm scared to death it's going to 'blow up' on my like the 2001. The 2001 had 89K on it when it went TU. No more Chrysler products for me. No wonder foreign cars are taking over. They know how to build quality.
