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

problem #2

Jan 032005

Sebring LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,000 miles


Bought the car new. First noticed rust on the driveway about 3 y later. Took it to Chrysler dealer, said severe rusting of suspension, tie rods. Replaced same for $1200. One year later, experienced loud squealing. Chrysler told me that tie rods, suspension needed to be replaced. When I complained that it had been done less than 5000 miles before, they showed me rusted parts. Major replacement, but discounted the $1200 to $900 "because I was an honored customer". 2008, similar problems. Took it to a local repair shop. Told me that Chrysler never put grease fittings on ball joints. Replaced the entire front end tie rods, etc. $1000. Four front ends in 45000 miles!

My Sebring has only 53000 miles on it and the tie rods are shot already and needed to be replaced.
