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 LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles


I have purchased this car from KWIK AUTO Sales in Raytown , MO. (address 6632 Blue Ridge BLVD) and purchased price was $6,995.00. The car is now starting to overheat at times when driving. I have replaced the coolant breather and then added more antifreeze. Every three days I have to add more coolant to make sure the care does not overheat. Next I am going to try to change the radiator cap to see if this works. Chryslers are a piece of Sh%$T!!! Also now I am hearing a lot of Squeaky noise coming from the front and not for sure if it is the struts , tire rods , axle , wheel bushing...or what ...AGAIN, I HATE CHRYSLERS!

Sebring Limited 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,537 miles

This was a repair on a used 2.7 that we had put in the Sebring after the engine blew because of sludge build up. Now we have a problem with the water pump, apparently it is leaking.

Now they find sludge, again! They replaced the oil, filter, timing chain, water pump all for the low price of $1250.00. Keep in mind this is the engine we had put in less than a year before because the original engine blew up. This repair was also out of town. Great. So here we go again, a used Sebring 2.7 engine installed to replace our original Sebring 2.7 engine that blew up. Why did we do this you ask. Because we were at the Chrysler Dealer in Farmville, VA and they recommended this nifty used engine. Great advice, not. Car is back on the road, for a little while, see next entry.
