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.

Chrome wheel rims provided on this vehicle are badly corroded which causes the tires to loose air pressure. I have taken this car to several tire shops and there is nothing that can be done to correct this issue. Apparently, chrome is notorious for having this problem. I have to use air every other day to maintain a safe air pressure on these tires. This problem has been going on for 18 months.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles
Owner was changing tire and cut hand on rim. Owner found chrome plating peeling away from the back of all four rims upon further inspection. Pieces are metal chards >2 inches which are peeling away around weld of spoke (backside of rim). Could cut or injure a person or cause tires to puncture if metal fragments were to break off during travel. Vehicle was taken to dealer (laflam Chrysler, runnemede NJ) where dealer stated that rims were "cosmetic" and not covered under warrantees. Chrysler service line was contacted same day (file#129-7146). Dealership denied inquiry about rims and then claimed that they felt it was cosmetic also. Owner feels there is a huge safety risk and is very concerned at changeing tires and what may happen while driving. Manufacturer has stated that there is "nothing you can do about it". the owner has a cut on his finger to prove this is not cosmetic.
