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.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 155,000 miles


My wonderful father brought me this convertible Sebring lxi on 04/17/2014. After my Chevy Impala/2002 stalled due to transmission/ignition switch the total cost is $3100. So my dad pays cash for the convertible Sebring lxi. On 05/03/2014, I was driving on the interstate attempting to attend a barbecue. It was a very nice day out. The car starts to overheat and the car stalls and slows down. I pulled over to the side of the road. The very next day, sun May 4,2014. I had the car taken to a mechanic and the engine had jump time and the engine had sludge build up. I was advised that it would cost me $3000-5000 for a new engine. I have lost my job in hr due to not being able to go work. I now own to vehicles that I can not drive and cant even afford to fix the car since I have lost my job. It really upsets me about the condition of the vehicle. There should be a recall on these engines. We the consumers should receive some type of relief. We the consumers rely on the intelligence and integrity of those that manufacture and make the engines. I'm asking that Chrysler pay for me a new engine. That is a small amount compared to the fact I could have lost my life behind the wheel of this car. Had this turned out any other way such as a fatality. My parents would have ensured that " heads would roll". I would hate to see Chrysler in the same "hot seat" that GM is currently sitting in.

Sebring 4-cyl

In November I noticed that in the mornings when I would get ready to drive to work my car would reverse when put in drive. Since I had just move to California for my new job and was in training I didn't get the time off to take my car to a dealership until January 06, 2003.
