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 LXI

  • Automatic transmission
  • 111,000 miles

Every time I turn my steering wheel it makes a super loud squeaky noise like it is rubbing against something. This sometimes also happens when I hit my brakes. I'm going to have my brakes replaced but I was also told maybe putting oil in that area would help it. I'm not sure but it is almost winter and it sounds really bad.

Sebring 2.7L V6 Dohc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles

The sqeaking from the steering, which sounds like the power steering belt, on this particular model. Sebring you can not even see the belts let alone change it. To even see the belts (the engine is sitting side ways rather than the usual or normal back to front) I was told you have to jack the car up, remove the wheel and remove the splash guard and drop the rack and pinion assembly. What as waste of time just change the belts. Seems like the car was made so that the car owners can no longer perform routine maintenance.

I also have this loud squeaking happening when I turn the steering wheel left or right in the front end. I did put new brake shoes and pads on this weekend but it did not stop.
