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 #1

May 262015


  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,807 miles


Car will suddenly accelerate when slowing down and placing foot on brake, Had been able to overcome it previously by putting car into neutral. Mechanic said he had never heard of such a problem and maybe it was floor mat stuck under gas pedal. Bring it back in if it happened again. Last night it happened again, as I was slowly turning into a parking spot on the street, put foot on brake and car suddenly took off at high speed, Managed to avoid parked car in front of me, tried riding the sidewalk, but ended up against the building. Our insurance company does not take into account mechanical failure, so I am responsible for the deductible. Lucky no one was killed and only damage was to my car and the building. Terrified to drive it again once repaired, will try reasoning with Chrysler Dealer here, but based on other comments, feel it may be futile. I will definitely have them disconnect the cruise control, because I am positive that is what kicked in which the switch shorted in the humidity.
