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 #3

Feb 102014

Sebring LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 165,134 miles


Purchased the car used.

Oil slick in driveway immediately.

250 miles on one quart of oil.

Mechanic explained to me that the engine block is aluminum and the oil pan is steel and when heated while driving, expand at different rates and is difficult to seal properly.

The mechanic fixed the oil leak. Costly to repair since exhaust system had to removed to access the oil pan.

Looking at the bottom of the engine block, the only engine oil pick up is a slot in the engine block/not separate oil pick up.

Sebring LX 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles

Oil leak on driver's side just to the right of the front headlight. It's a slow leak, but I have to add 1 quart every 1500-2000 miles. A few drops of oil on the ground each day. Brought it to the mechanic. Of course it wasn't leaking then, so he said he couldn't find any evidence of an oil leak. My evidence is on the floor of my garage. Right now it's just an inconvenience. The oil color looks ok, and I don't think it's leaking into other engine parts right now.
