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.

  • 116,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chrysler Sebring touring. While driving approximately 40 mph she had difficulty steering. The steering column also turned upside down while driving. The failure occurred intermittently at first, but then became progressively worst over a period of time. Although she experienced an identical failure, her vehicle identification number was excluded from recall number 04V579000 (steering:linkages:knuckle:spindle:arm). The "air bag" warning indicator was illuminated on the instrument panel. The failure mileage was 116,000. The current mileage was 117,000.

The right steering knuckle on the consumer's 2005 Chrysler Sebring broke causing loss of steering control. Consequently the consumer had an accident and the vehicle was totaled. A recall was issued in Dec 2004 after the consumer had the accident.
