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

  • Automatic transmission

After driving off the lot with a new 2002 Chrysler Sebring lxi, consumer observed a noise from the lower drivers side and felt vibration from the steering column. The noise is a rattling noise that sounds like metal slapping or tapping against metal. This occurs regularly at high and low speeds once the engine reaches normal operations (after the car has been driving for a few minutes). The dealer has been notified three times and has not solved this problem. They resulted to saying that the noise is from a transaxle splash guard, but they tried to recreate the noise by pushing the splash guard against the transaxle, but the noise did not disappear.

While driving air bag warning light illuminated and stayed on the remainder of the time while vehicle was being operated. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem. A rattling noise could be heard in the dash area. The consumer found a nut and notified the dealer. The dealer informed the consumer that the nut did not belong in the dash and they insulated the dash so no more noise could be heard. The consumer feels the nut came from something in the dash. The seat belt pre-tensioner was replaced three times. The transmission fluid began to leak. The dealer determined that the cooler line clamps became loose and caused the transmission fluid to leak.
