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.

Low power when trying to accelerate. I was told my car was getting too much fuel. I took my car into the shop because of water in my back floor board and asked them to check out the check engine light coming on and that when hooked to the a readout meter that they could find nothing other than 1 time about misfiring. When they did some rather expensive tests, I was told that my car is getting too much fuel. It feels like it just kind of bogs down at times when trying to increase the speed...you push the gas pedal and it just doesn't want to increase the speed. I was also told that this car is made to go fast and that it doesn't like going slow.

Sebring

I bought my Sebring sedan in may of 2006 with 5 miles on it. For starters, I immediately had issues with the radio cutting out. I took it back to the dealership asap, and they claimed to have fixed it, but didn't. my second problem was my horn. It all of a sudden started sounding muffled, if it sounded at all. I called about that problem and they told me to bring it in. Which I would have, but over that weekend out of nowhere, my car stalled out on me without any kind of warning lights or gauges. I called a local towing company to pick it up, and they immediately told me that they could see right off the bat that I had a large hole in my oil pan, and all of the oil had probably leaked out. So I told them just to go ahead and replace it and we would go from there, thinking that would be the end of it. Unfortunately, I was wrong. After they replaced the oil pan, they soon realized that my engine had seized. So assuming the dealership would be the ones to install the new engine, I had the car towed back to my house until I confirmed things with the dealership. I also figured that because the car was barely a year old, it should be covered under my warranty. I was wrong again. So, long story a little shorter, the dealership refused to pay for any of the new engine, nor did they even give me a good price on one. Their cheapest one was pretty much the price of another mechanics most expensive. So, because I had the engine replaced somewhere else, my warranty for almost everything else was void. Since then, I have had nothing but problems out of it, and its going to break down for good soon because I cannot afford to keep up with the problems. My engine light is currently on, and has been for about 6 months, I just recently had an antifreeze leak fixed, I think there may be a transmission problem, and my horn still doesn't work. Those are just to name a few. It has been the most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned. I am actually thinking of letting the bank just take it.

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.
