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.

Problems with the front end, steering. It locks up and becomes very tight then very loose. I was told possibly rack-and-pinion by a mechanic. After looking at these complaints on the web site, I'm afraid to drive it. I have 2002 Sebring w/87,000 miles. I will have it checked out Monday for sure. How do I get Chrysler to fix this?

Consumer complained about a rack and pinion steering problem. When making a left turn the steering was binding. Driver would turn the steering wheel and it would stick, making turns very difficult.

Sebring 6-cyl

A knocking noise started coming from the front of the vehicle while driving. The driver noticed, while steering, that steering wheel failed to turned on its own. The driver was able to drive vehicle to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic determined that rack and pinion steering needed to be replaced due to solenoid switch.
