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.

Interior dash lights flicker on and off at night, sometimes remaing off. As such, speedometer isn't illuminated, as well as other guages. I googled this condition and by the responses I saw, this is a widespread problem in the Chrysler Sebring and there should be an immediate recall before someone gets hurt from diverting attention from the road to the dash situation. This happens if the vehicle is stopped, moving, turning, on a city street and in highway conditions. It happens when traveling on smooth pavement or rougher conditions. The vehicle is in like new condition and has never been wrecked.

The electrical in the dash started flickering on and off without warning. Eventually it stopped working all together. I took it to a service dept I work at and they told me I needed to take it back to the dealer because they would have to rip the whole dash apart and replace it. That would cost me around $600. Seems like other people have had the same problem. Has this ever been a recall?

Most recently the electronic throttle control light came on, the owners manual indicates that the vehicle may loose control of speed and cause an accident. Further research indicated that this was a common problem and that people have lost control of there vehicles and or been in accidents as they were unable to slow down or stop do to this issue. Many of the complainants on line were individuals with young children as I am and have serious concerns for injury or death. Local dealers had issues resolving the problem. My second issue which is also a common issue for Chrysler owners is that the instrument cluster lights go out and cease to work and you will not be able to see any of your instruments at night such as your speed, tachometer, gas gauge, engine temperature ect. This is a big safety concern as you can not see your speed at night or early in the morning when kids are going to school and reduced speeds are in affect, as well as being able to know if your running out of gas or car is overheating causing further damage. I did although find a recall for different models with gas gauge issues as a safety concern for running out of gas. This instrument cluster issue has to be far worse than the gas gauge recall as it causes the same concerns plus several more in just one problem. When I called the recall line they said that its not on the recall list but was able to confirm the gas gauge issue I attached below. Fuel gauge may overstate fuel level models : Chrysler Sebring, Dodge avenger engine, March 16, 2009 the began March, 2009. The Chrysler recall number is J02. I will be forwarding this complaint and posting to the executives of Chrysler as well as my local media, and insurance company for validity of my complaint. I hope to be contacted for this issue to be resolved.

When turning on the headlights, the dash light (instrument cluster) will not come on right away. If/when the dash light does try to come on, it flickers and blinks. This is a hazard when driving at night as you cannot see your speed, gas limit or engine temperature.

Highway safety there are millions of autos on the U.S. highways (and around the world), with headlight lenses that are foggy that is, no longer clear. The result is that the light from the headlights is dispersed more widely and not focused forward, for the driver to see the road ahead. For drivers going in the opposite direction, it results in blinding them. All of this can contribute to increased traffic accidents and deaths. The auto manufacturers have been allowed to get away with this terrible car design far too long. They must be required to use materials for the headlight lenses, that will not pit and abrade over time, thus retaining the clarity of original manufacture. Just look around at vehicles on the road. The process of deterioration begins when the vehicle hits the road for the first time. The plastic materials used gradually abrade due to wind, mud, salt, etc., etc. While there are processes that auto owners can use or have performed, to polish the lenses and reasonably restore the original clarity. Few do it because they either don't recognize the problem or do not want to spend the time/money to correct it. If the government can require such safety items as seat belts and air bags, it can require better materials for headlight lenses and save lives. Go back to glass this condition did not develop with the old sealed-beam headlights. Glass can be molded to any shape desired. The matter should have been addressed years ago. The NHTSA has been negligent in not doing something about this issue. Don't wait!! while I cannot specify a specific date of an accident or vehicle related to this problem, I have entered below, in order to get this message delivered. As I said just look at cars in your parking lot, even you own vehicle (unless it is only a couple of years old) and you will see what I mean.
