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.

I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring and the gear shifter stopped working. (shift assembly) the shifter will no longer shift out of park by just pressing the break. We tried to reset it but it would not work and also tried other options in the car manual and they didn't work. We took the cover off and tried to find the problem we found that the only way to move into gear is by pressing down the pink button on the left hand side in the downward position while pressing the break and it will go in and out of gear. Went to the Dodge dealership and they said this is not the first time they have seen this problem in this year model and make. The issue is about $300 to fix, we had this vehicle for less than a year before it happened and the car itself is in great condition. The issue is the shift assembly we have yet to get it fixed because the car was new and is obviously a defect from the manufacturer. The car showed no signs of anything wrong before it happened just went to start it and wouldn't move from the park position.

My wife drives a 2007 Chrysler Sebring and on May 25th 2010 when she got in her car to go home from work, she was unable to shift the car out of park. She immediately called me and I looked for information on the web and discovered this was sort of a common problem for Chrysler and it was due to a faulty or defective 'shift interlock control system'. on several forums I saw that several Sebrings, PT CRUISER, and Chrysler 300S have had the same or similar issues. We called our local Chrysler/Dodge dealership, landmark Chrysler dodger in morrow, ga and the service center informed us that they see this issue "all the time" and it not only affects the vehicles mentioned above, but it also includes Dodge chargers as well. The went on to state that it would cost us approximately $350 to fix the issue. There is no way to disable the system and circuvent the cost of repair, our only option is to pay to have it fixed.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 19,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The contact noticed that the RPM's would sporadically increase and decrease while traveling 40 mph. Secondly, the vehicle would not decelerate when driving highway speeds. He either has to continually apply pressure to the brake pedal in order to slow the vehicle down or place the vehicle into neutral. A technician stated that the torque converter would not decelerate. The failure mileage was 19,000 and current mileage was 27,000. Updated 09/15/08 when the consumer removed his foot from the accelerator, the vehicle would not slow down. The dealer stated it sounded as if the torque converter was not disengaging. The dealer told the consumer it was a design issue. Updated 09/17/08.
