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.

Start car, when in idle it shuts off with in a few seconds of hitting gas now. It use to idle and I would have to rev a little so it would not turn off. That worked for a little bit today to broke down. Luckily in my drive way this time instead of the middle of road like last week. Why is my car doing this?

The contact owns a 2003 Chrysler Sebring sedan. The contact noticed that the entire steering column, horn, and cruise control were fractured. In addition, the driver side air bag warning light was continuously illuminated. The failures occurred continuously. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the clock spring needed to be replaced, but the vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 130,000.

Worked with the repair shop - evans auto car in blue ash, oh - to understand why 2003 Chrysler Sebring suddenly experiences drop in speed from 70 to 25 mph. Repair shop noted car computer likely faulty and parts unavailable from dealership. According to message boards and other Chrysler shops, dealers are restricted from releasing parts due to anticipated future problems. Problems stem from cold-soldering of the main computer board. This is a dangerous developing safety concern that warrants future investigation due to manufacturer holding back parts. Repair shop noted they may be preparing for future problems.

The steering rack was replaced, both door panels were replaced, the rear windows would shake when opened and closed, the regulator cable was knotted, the left 1/2 regulator was replaced, the front tires were rubbing, the front end displayed a clunking noise, the backing plate was bent, the key did not come out at times, but no repair was needed at the time, the check engine light stayed on, a tire blew out and the wheel bearings were replaced.
