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

Sebring LXI V9

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Bought a Chrysler Sebring LXI in November of 2003. My Car was a 2002 with just under 5K miles......and she was beautiful....gold....v6 , leather seats, sunroof, ran like a dream. I was trading in my 98 Stratus for the slightly used Sebring because my Stratus was having transmission problems. So I bought my Sebring and was so happy and then I started having a transmission problem at around 6 or 7 K miles.......so my Dad who worked for Chrysler took the car in and they replaced the transmission...NO CHARGE and I Never had another transmission problem again. The Sebring was my first used car. Flash forward to 2007......I had a teenage son who needed a car and I bought a 2008 Toyota ....my son drove the Sebring and we started having oil issues...we would get them fixed, oil pan....then the thermostat...then oil again....the car would get fixed, break down and sit for months, get fixed, break down with oil issues, get fixed...go again and drove like a dream then break down. The Last day was today Jan 17 2016. Took the car to CarMax after it had been sitting since August...why? Oil Leak...again. Carmax did not offer much of a trade in for a Chrysler 300 S....so the car spent the night at CARMAX and we went this morning to pick her up......The car drove nice for Carmax.....no issues with the engine or transmission, but the interior was not up to par...sigh, I Know...kids...my kid is now 29...anyway...My son was driving the Sebring home and we were ahead of him and as our 300 raced off the poor Sebring who had been sitting since August got floored and that is when a big cloud of smoke came out of the back........I didn't see it....my husband did and that was the moment of her death. We went to help my son, bought oil, he started the car and all of the oil came out of the bottom of the car....we told him that he could not drive her and that is how it ended. We were sad, she was a beautiful and gorgeous car and we Donated her to Soldiers Angels...the car sits in a parking lot waiting for the Veterans to pick her up tomorrow. Not quite the ending I had for my beautiful Sebring....
