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.

2004 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 132006

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,595 miles


During normal use of the car, the rear-window defroster stops working. The defroster stops working because a power wire comes disconnected as the tab attached to the glass detaches. The car is a convertible with limited vision to the rear, when the defroster doesn't work the driver's vision is limited even further. This makes driving dangerous. The tab was re-attached at the dealer.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,100 miles
: the contact stated there was a burning smell coming from the inside of the vehicle. The next day the vehicle caught on fire. The fire department was called and filed a report. Upon inspection the insurance company determined the electrical wiring in the rear defroster caused the fire. Previously, the vehicle was taken in for repair because the rear defroster, turn signals and the windshield wipers had failed.
