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

I have a 2004 Chrysler sebring. The problem is that it has door handles that have a metal covering on them. I have replaced them several times. The metal covering on the handles start to peel off and it cuts your hands if not careful. My granddaughter required stitches from opening the back door. I have also had serious cuts. After talking to other sebring owners I have found that they have the same problems with the door handles and being cut. I would like to she this changed to different handles, however I am only able to get the same type of handle for my car.
