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.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 108,000 miles


I bought my 2004 Chrysler Sebring sedan in February of 2014. Two months later in April the ball studs on my tires were popping off while while I was driving and my car started wobbling. I took my car to the place where I got it from and they fixed it. Two months later in June the same thing happened on the same tire. The ball studs flew off while I was driving and the tire was hanging on by one ball stud the others were broken off. I had the car towed to the shop and it was fixed. Now in August my ball joint snapped as I was backing out a parking space, with no warning. The whole car fell to the ground. This car is a safety hazard and there is no reason why the ball studs and ball joint should break so easily. If I was on a residential street or even on the parkway I would've lost control and crashed.

I can remember all of the dates that these problems occurred but, I did have automobile insurance and they did have a tote truck to take my car to a body shop. This been repaired some time three to four time a year. I keep going to get this repaired. I bought two cars same make and model and everything on both cars been repaired and its not because of an automobile incident its because of the barron been coming aparts. I have bought a new motor on both cars. I have had nothing but. Problems with this car the same problems with both cars. I am so afraid of these cars because I bought them new and I know I bought a new engine.

This was a mater of severe injury and property damage and could have been death or maiming. Traveling to a normal stop at an intersection traffic light, being the first car to the light on flat pavement, the car's front passenger side lower ball joint came out of its socket and the car skidded to a halt on the pavement riding on the undercarriage of the vehicle frame with the whole tire and brake assembly dangling by the brake line hose outside the wheel well. How could Chrysler be allowed to send a faulty life safety device such as a this critical steering, suspension ball joint that human life depends on into the public for sale? I am outraged that my wife could have been killed by Chrysler's slipshod engineering and product placement. There is no doubt in my mind that if she had been on the highway traveling at a high rate of speed I would be calling a funeral parlor today to make arrangements today for her burial. She was minutes away from traveling to a higher rate of speed when she left the shopping center. Thank god the light turned red. I hope someone at NHTSA can do something about this terrible and dangerous life threatening vehicle on the roadways for the sake of sebring occupants and other vehicle occupant's who are at risk of death if nothing is done to correct the issue or banish the vehicles altogether from roadways. Three sebrings passed us while we waited for the tow truck and those people are at the same risk of death by driving those cars. Chrysler should be held responsible for their careless and negligent actions. And, they should recall all of these products to provide a safe alternative at no cost. I am out mental anguish and property. They know their business and they take the liability so they should be responsible. In am very happy my wife didn't get killed. I have all pictures of the accident if you need them. Thank you.
