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.

04 Chrysler Sebring 4 door sedan V6 2.7L rear strut to body mounts failed. The mounts appear to be cast aluminum and dissolved to nothing cause suspension failure. This then caused the fronts to be replaced as well. The whole car become dangerous to drive causing the car to sway and have excess play in steering.

I was driving along, and suddenly a rattling noise started coming from the right rear of the car when I would hit bumps. The car's handling was the same and the vehicle still felt stable, so I continued driving until I got to the dealership the next day. The Y advised that the rear strut mounts had deteriorated, and that Chrysler had revised the mounts after my vehicle year because of so many people having the same problem. Now I have to pay $300 to get them fixed!

I had owned the car less than 4 years when the rear strut mount on the passenger side broke from corrosion and caused me to have to have the rear mounts and struts replaced. I emailed Chrysler and they responded that since the car was no longer under warranty for those parts that there was nothing they could do about it.
