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 4-cyl

Six months after purchasing a used Chrysler Sebring 2005 from a local dealership, a large stream of oil began (and continued) to pour out of the drive shaft seal when the engine was running. The car was taken to a service center where the problem was diagnosed as a bad drive shaft that had ruined the engine block and drive shaft seal. The only fix they offered was an engine replacement (which would cost more than the original cost of the vehicle).

2005 Chrysler Sebring transmission delays shifting from drive to park. ** answer required***. the engine light had come on, there was a transmission delay from drive to park, if placed in neutral the vehicle would shake and jerks when placed in drive. The mechanic stated that this was normal. The engine light had come on again and the mechanic was unable to duplicate the problem. The third occurrence resulted in an evap leak, due to the gas cap which needed to be tightened. The fourth incident showed a diagnostic result gas leak code of 0441. On the fifth occurrence, the mechanic suggested that the wires were eaten by rodents.
