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 #5

Jun 252007

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles


Clock spring broke rendering air bag, horn and cruise control functions inoperable. Vehicle has been taken in to dealer before for air bag warning light illumination and dealer said nothing was wrong. Took it to second service shop within a month and they stated it was a clock spring and that breakage on Chrysler vehicles was common. They were unable to repair so I have to return to the dealer. Air bag and horn would fail to operate in an accident.

December of 2002 - rear window defogger quit. Wire connector came loose from rear window. Could not be repaired. Window had to be replaced to fix problem. May of 2004 - air bag indicator came on and chime sounded. Sensor or some sort replaced at an expense of over $300 June of 2005 - repeat or above problem. Appointment to bring car in for servicing on June 28th. June of 2005 - repeat of rear window defogger. Item has not worked for months. I have run a report on and have found both of these problems with other owners of this model. Appears we have a problem here. I should not have had to pay for the air bag problem the first time and I certainly shouldn't have to pay next week when I bring it in for servicing.
