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.

1998 Plymouth Breeze Owner Comments

Breeze 4-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


I have a 1998 Plymouth Breeze with a 2.0 liter motor. I have only 6000 miles on this vehicle because I drive very little with it. I am 81 years old and dont do much driving any more. I recently found motor oil in my water inside my radiator. I was told by a Chrysler dealership that my head gasket was blown. They told me that any motor between 1995-2005 had defective head gaskets and that Chrysler corporation had corrected the problem by introducing a new revised version on the head gasket...thicker, more durable! anyway the dealership new about it as did many persons on the internet that owned these vehicles from the years that I specified. So I called Chrysler corporation and tyler asked me for the VIN number to my vehicle and told me that I had 2 recalls on it but they knew nothing of a defective head gasket problem with the years I specified and would not opt to fix it for me or anyone else for that fact. So I am reporting Chrysler corporation for their lack of honesty and customer support since we baled them out of a bad finacial situation and now look at them. All I can say is that the bail out was not worth it. We should have let them go under!

Breeze 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles
There has been a continous oil leak involving my 1998 Plymouth Breeze upon inspection from a local auto shop they informed me that they have serviced and replaced the head gasket on some 1998 Plymouth Breeze for oil leaks. They have had to reservice the same cars within a six month period for the same head gasket leak. While driving at a speed of 50 mph the ac clutch broke off from under the hood, causing the vehicles ac unit to stop responding. Prior to the ac clutch breaking there was a loud banging noise in which we pulled over to the side to investigate, we could not see anything evident at the time, but after taking it to get serviced we were informed that the noise and reason our ac was not working was due to the ac clutch breaking off. Nothing has been done to correct these defects, but we have had service technicians investigate the problem.
