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

  • 48,000 miles
For approximately 2 weeks, my 2004 Chrysler Sebring has been having what I consider to be a huge safety issue. When the car is placed into reverse to back up, then shifted into drive and the gas pedal pressed, the car continues to travel in reverse. I placed the car in park, then shifted to drive. The car continued to travel in reverse. Again, shifted to park and back to drive. The car the drifted forward while the engine sounded like it was revving. I continued to shift from park to drive numerous times, and the car continued to drift and make the revving sounds. For the past 2 days, I have shifted from reverse to drive and have to stomp on the gas pedal, at which point the engine seems to lurch into gear and then drives fine. And when I say stomp on the gas pedal, I mean stomp - hard.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles
I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring with a 2.7L V6 engine. The potentially dangerous problem which has come up numerous times is the engine RPM will surge causing the car to lurch forward. The problem occurs when coming to a stop - the engine RPM will drop to the point where the engine will almost stall, then surge excessively causing the car to lurch forward. This surge of rpms has caused me to almost hit cars in front of me and worse, sending me into an intersection with oncoming cars. I have called about this issue and brought my car in to have this issue examined - the only thing that was does was to reprogram the transmission PCM. I do see that this is a fairly common problem with other owners.
