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

I have leased my 2002 sebring convertiable lxi on Sept 9, 2002 since then the car has been back for numerous times. Beginning not even 3 months and 500 miles into lease. I started having problems with it. Electrical (air bag light, altertator light, engine light, driver side heated seat), transmission has recently had been serviced and parts have been replaced, I have been telling Chrysler (dealership) since about 500 miles and they told me it wasn't anything, they recently replaced a couple of things at about 26,866. I was having and still having trouble with the ignition key not coming out of the ignition on my last service (March 04) they've replaced the ignition collar. I have tried to return or trade in for a new Chrysler car but they say since I am in a lease there's nothing I could do about it. The air bag light is still coming on every 10 seconds since my last service March 04 but they say nothing is wrong. From what I understand correctly there's two things that could happen 1. air bag will not deplote if I was in an accident and 2. it could deplote at any given time while I'm driving. So needless to say I do not feel safe driving this car. The dealership doesn't seem to care. Can you help me.
