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.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 86,000 miles
Whitish/grayish smoke was billowing out of front end of car. Patrons driving alerted us & we exited vehicle. As we vacated vehicle we realized purse was still in vehicle, we ran to retrieve it & as we retrieved belongings, fire engulfed front end of vehicle & shot through front of vehicle & engulfed the entire front portion of vehicle & inside of vehicle. Power steering fluid dripped on engine which ignited the fire. As fire firefighters extinguished the first fire & as the first fire died down the vehicle erupted in flames once again which was ignited by fuel. Power steering fluid and battery acid causing the flames to shoot through the front end of the car (inside) to the back of the vehicle towards fuel tank. The vehicle was a potential fire ball. Vehicle is a charred totaled shell of a car. Towed to a towing/storage lot waiting for inspection by field engineers of Chrysler as well as your team per sabrina case # 10733613.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
Vehicle stall first time on August 20 2013. It would only get up to 10mph. Had to get it towed to shop. They cleaned the throttle work for about a month. On September 18 problem occurred again the red light which looks like a lighting bolt came on. Lost power pull over on interstate crank up again work fine until September 25 when it stall again had to get a tow truck again to take it to another shop. They told me that the first shop should not have replace throttle that only work temporarily. So they replace the whole throttle and reprogram this cost me a total of $733. This can be dangerous going down the interstate lucky didn't cost a accident. This should never happen especially 3 years old.

Well I have been at chysler concerning my brakes, smell of smoke and my engine keep coming on and each time poor customer service. They will not tell me what exactly is going on and I am very upset with the poor customer service. This is taking time from my work and cost consuming. My car has 11,051 miles and that is ridiculous that I go back and forth. I am very upset of the poor service and feel they are not putting the proper parts in my car. My break still squeak and I brought extra warranty for this car. The poor service and deciet is terrible. I am going to the media with this issue. Nothing has not change and I called customer service at the chysler corporate office and they treated me with total disrespect.
