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.

When I park my car or stop at intersection it does not move when I give gas, I give more and more gas then car start moves. What could be the problem I don't know. Dtc is P0007 showing transaxle.

Sebring

  • 91,000 miles
The timing chain/guides/tensioner has failed in the vehicle with only 91000 miles on the odometer. I have experienced the oil light coming on at idle and have been told by the dealer that the issue is the sensor. This did not correct the problem.

I purchased a 2001 Chrysler Sebring 5 years ago. Nice looking car, but the engine is total junk. Transmission leaks, leaks oil, power steering, massive vibration when at a stop, massive engine noise. Engine is junk. Had to trade in for a much better and reliable car. I will not purchase Chrysler again.

Since I bought my vehicle in 2001 I had problems with my window, steering clicking, power train computer and transmission computer, tapping in the engine, engine failure, crankshaft, now servere knocking. I will not advice anyone to purchase a Sebring from chysler. It's sad that chysler not helping correct the problems that their vehicle has.

: the contact stated while driving on the highway at 35 mph the transmission failed. The independent repair shop determined there was a defective cushion spring. The stock replacement part provided by the manufacturer was at least five times heavier than the original part. The gauge of the original cushion spring was much less than the stock replacement part. As the cushion spring began to disintegrate the parts lodged in the pump gears, resulting in having to rebuild the transmission.
