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.

Sebring 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


I have had recurring problems with the engine stalling when the engine is hot. After driving for some time on an interstate, the car will stall when taken down to a lower speed- like getting off the exit ramp, or just braking to slow down for traffic. This has happened no less than 20 times in the last year. I have been fortunate to not have an accident- the car just stalls in the middle of traffic on the highway, exit ramp, or intersection. I have taken it to the dealer 3 times for the problem, and they say they cannot recreate the problem and just reset the engine timing, etc. It has happened as recently as this week. I have just read at least 24 similar complaints on this site- I had no idea it was common. The dealers should have a remedy for this by now. I am scared someone will plow into me. This is my fifth Sebring convertible and now I will never buy another one.
