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

  • 66,000 miles
Traveling on the interstate two cars got into a fender bender another crashed into them and I was traveling behind the third vehicle when I applied the brakes and sent into a skid. My car slid a good distance until it crashed right into the back of the third vehicle which was a Volvo in which their air bags deployed. My sebring did not stop nor did the air bags deploy. I was traveling around 30-40 mph when the impact happen. Will not have confirmation until tomorrow but it appears that the car will not be salvageable. It is my understanding that anti-lock brakes should prevent a skid on a dry surface on a clear day.

The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible. While driving 30 mph, the vehicle would not slow down when he depressed the brake. As a result, the vehicle crashed into the curb. This caused the passenger side front and the driver side rear tire to go flat. The contact had the vehicle towed to the mechanic and as of April 28, 2008, the mechanic had not inspected the vehicle. The current and failure mileages were 92,000.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Loose brakes, transmission slips, accident and airbags did not deploy it takes a long distance to stop. Brakes are not ABS. 9/11 truck pulled out in front of me, stomped on brake, wheels did not lock, car did not stop rolling and I hit the vehicle. Transmission always slips, especially at 30 mph. I have been in two frontal hits and airbags did not deploy. Dealer has been told about the problem numerous times.
