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 #4

Aug 092015


  • 91,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that there were strong fumes of fuel coming from outside the vehicle and a puddle underneath the vehicle. The contact was unable to determine where the fluid originated. An independent mechanic inspected the fuel tank, which was removed, and determined that there was a fire near where the return line entered into the fuel tank. The components were internally burned and needed to be replaced. The mechanic replaced the fuel tank assembly. The vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign numbers: 04V313000 (fuel system, gasoline) and 03V443000 (fuel system, gasoline). The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 91,000.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 80,500 miles
After accelerating from a stop at a traffic light, the car accelerator or throttle began to stick and accelerate intensely, going up to 80mph with the brake engaged. I pulled off the main road, continuing to brake as hard as I could until I was able to safely shut down the car. I had no control over the car and narrowly avoided a serious accident. Prior to this incident, my car has had every service recommended by the manufacturer manual.
