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.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #5

Sebring 2.4L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


All of my hoses underneath my hood went bad at ironically the same time. If this was supposed to happen it should have been put in the owners manual. Chrysler is an embarrassing excuse to an automobile manufacturing company

Sebring Convertible 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

Now that I have a "new" used 2.7 engine on my Sebring after the first one blew and having put 20K miles on it, I have codes 442, 455, and 340. I believe I've found enough information on the 442 and 455 codes to fix, but I had my mechanic work on the 340 code. He replaced the camshaft position sensor - no fix. He replaced the crankshaft position sensor - the car wouldn't even start. He put the old sensor back in and voila - it runs again, but the code is still there and won't go away. Any ideas? I'm only completely pissed after having spent $1300 for this and other service/repairs and I still can't get the POS through emissions.

Sebring LX 2.7L

The car is running rough and it feels like it's in a high gear. Mechanic reports emission control problem and cleared codes after oil change and transmission flush but engine light came on 4days later.

Sebring LXI

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles

I just dumped over $800 on the POS replacing the water pump, thermostat and some other junk they told me I needed fixed. I drove about 3000 or more miles and then the engine light comes on. I took the hooptie up to the dealership and they hooked it up to the machine and told me I need a cam disposition sensor. Cool, put that in and the car still runs like a POS. I wanted a Saturn Vue as my next car, but look what happened to them have tried to support American companies but I might have to do like everyone else in my family and jump ship and buy a Honda or Toyota they run forever. POS members UNITE!!!

(reported on)

Sebring LX Convertible 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles

As I stated before the engine light came on and for 3 days I didn't drive it, but I would start it up to see if the MIL was still on, So after 3 days I took it to the Chrysler place I pulled into the service department, put it in park, cut the engine and the service manager came over to help me, I started the car so he could see the MIL and it didn't come on. I drove all over town doing my thing and came home and the light is off. It went out on its own, after 3 days The service manager said drive it and call him if it comes back on. I"m Happy, but I'm sure I'll be stranded beside the road somewhere, I've read so many complaints.
