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.

2005 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 092008


  • 63,000 miles


Had a major oil leak. Thought it might be a cracked oil filter. Took it in to local shop and found out it was a failure in the crank case seal. They said it was caused by excessive vibration in the engine. They said it was caused by an unacceptable variance in the drive shaft causing excessive pressure on the seal. The vehicle only has 60,000 miles on it and we change the oil regularly. The shop checked and found several other like problems with the Sebring over the past several months in This cost me $675 and only fixed the oil leak. The major issue with the drive shaft isn't fixed. The vehicle hasn't been in an accidents to cause any internal problems that are my fault. I think Chrysler should help with these costs to the owners that have incurred these excessive costs.
