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 #1

Jan 152014

Sebring GTX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 154,000 miles


After rolling my 1999 Sebring Convertible @ 65 miles per hour and lived to tell about it, I was impressed with the car as the rear part of the cage is a roll bar. I then proceeded to purchase a 2002 Sebring Convertible with a 2.7l engine, I guess that was a mistake. Since then I've replaced 2-engines. The 1st one started when I was driving on the highway, there is a tube that has water flowing thru it to cool the engine. It let go at 65 miles per hour, you can guess about the rest. The 2nd, well I was driving around town and the car started to make a squealing noise so I pulled over and checked it out, needless to say my water pump was going. I got back in my car and proceeded to drive home. When I started it up I heard a loud rapping, I knew then that there was more damage than I though, there was no engine light, guess what, new engine.

I am on my 3rd engine and I have 164,00 miles on it, time to go. Chrysler needs to fess up about this. These engines are pure junk and I mean junk.
