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.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

Sebring Convertible 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles


2002 Sebring Convertible - 63000 miles and the engine blows - you guessed it - SLUDGE and poor oiling. Car broke down on the highway on my wife. Oil was changed regularly - more often than recommended - but still - the engine blew. This is the second 2.7 liter Chrysler engine that has blown on me - the other being on a 1999 Intrepid that belongs to my daughter. What I want to know is - if Chrysler developed a new water pump on the hush-hush that (hopefully) doesn't allow coolant to leak into the oiling system anymore - how come I have a car crap out and have to pay for it at less than 1/2 design life? I've been a (delusional) Chrysler owner since my first 1965 Satellite - a car that wouldn't blow it's engine when floating lifters well over redline on half oil capacity? Now - to have this "technologically advanced" engine that won't last longer than a 90 year old without Viagra is beyond my tolerance. Step up Chrysler!
