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.

My 2004 Sebring convertible has made two distinctly different noises: 1st at any speed when I release my foot from the gas pedal I get what I call a cricket sounding noise - very annoying. 2nd at speeds of 70 mph and up I get what I call a whistling sound that is also very annoying and stays on when I use cruise control. I have had the car in for service at massey yardley, hobe sound, fl on at least 3 different occasions and gone for test drives with the service manager. He recognizes the problem tries to fix it to no avail. Finally have had Chrysler look at the problem - they also acknowledge the problem, but tell me I have to live with it. I am going to arbitration shortly.

Loose brakes, transmission slips, accident and airbags did not deploy it takes a long distance to stop. Brakes are not ABS. 9/11 truck pulled out in front of me, stomped on brake, wheels did not lock, car did not stop rolling and I hit the vehicle. Transmission always slips, especially at 30 mph. I have been in two frontal hits and airbags did not deploy. Dealer has been told about the problem numerous times.
