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 LXI 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles

I own a 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXI. It has only 32,000 miles on it and the transmission began to leak and the shifting went bad. My wife got scared because she stopped in the middle of a major intersection and the transmission would not work just RPM's began to be running very high. I really don;t recommend for anyone to buy any Chrysler vehicles! They are not good vehicles!!!!!!!!!!

problem #1

(reported on)

Sebring LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

transmission leaking slowly for about one year. First time, Chrysler said it was the lines and not covered under the warranty, the second time, it was covered under the warranty, although they charged me approximately $200.00 the first time. It turned out to be the transmission solenoid and an all day repair.
