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.

This is a 2006 Sebring touring, bought with around 33,00 miles. The first night I tried this car, the check engine light came on with them saying they would fix it. It didn't come back on for months...after the warranty was up. I have had this car almost a year and it had a 30 day warranty. I took it back at least once a week for the warranty with them saying they could find nothing wrong. The brakes make rubbing noises, even though I was told they put on new brake shoes and it wobbles, even though they said they calibrated the rotors and fixed them. It jumps when you stop and on take off it just took it to another shop in another town and was told they couldn't find any wrong other than it needed an update and that this should take care of 99% of my problems if not all. After paying out $178.45, it do not take care of the problem. The also told me that I needed a new fuel pump and that one of the problems was it was pumping too much fuel and that this would eventually do damage to other parts of the engine and I would be looking at more than just the fuel pump to replace but they didn't think the car would just quit on me right now, but I was looking at problems on down the road. So now, I am looking at around $450 for the fuel pump and labor and still don't know if that is the problem. In July I had about an inch plus water in my passenger rear floor board, after sucking the water up several times, they finally said I needed a new type of drain line on the air conditioner, but come to find out, it had the new line. I did get the line blown out because they said that the air conditioner line getting clogged is a problem. The water has not come back, yet. The air conditioner makes like a hum-hum noise, then it will quit and the car sounds quiet for a few min, and then it starts again. This is definitely a car I am dissatisfied with. I had bought 3 sets of wiper blades and none of them seem to sit on the windshield correctly to get the water off.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that the passenger side front and rear tires were completely flat. She took the vehicle to a local mechanic and was informed that she needed new tires. The contact also heard a squeaking noise coming from the rear brakes. She took the vehicle to the dealer for repairs on the rear brakes, but the squeaking noise returned the following day. The dealer stated that the brakes were supposed to make the noise because it was a new vehicle. The tire failure recurred; therefore, new tires were installed. The contact heard a grinding sound the entire time she drove the vehicle. The brakes were replaced three times and the tires were replaced twice. The failure mileage was 35,000 and current mileage was 46,000. Updated 09/15/08 updated 09/18/08.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Sebring. The horn has not been working ever since the vehicle was purchased. The dealer stated that a sensor light was illuminated due to a defect with the air bag; therefore, they replaced the air bag. The vehicle has been to the dealer four times for this failure. While driving at an unknown speed, the horn suddenly sounded and the contact could not make it stop. She has also experienced squealing, squeaking, and clunking noises when the brake pedal was depressed. The dealer replaced all four rotors and pads, but the brake failure has recurred. The vehicle may also be leaking brake fluid. Now that the vehicle has reached the 3 month or 3,000 mile limited warranty end date, the dealer will no longer provide repair services. The failure mileage was 65,000 and current mileage was 66,700.
