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 2.7L V6

Due to noticing a decrease is fuel milage, and acceleration, I took my car to the dealership. I sat and waited and the guy told me that they pulled codes from the car's computer and it showed some sort of issues with the fuel pump. They then preformed a pressure test to measure psi coming out of the pump and needless to say was sub-par. I was told since it was a Friday, that I would have to miss another day of work and bring my vehicle back to the dealership the following Monday due to having to order a replacement pump.

The following Monday, I took my Sebring back and waited about 7 hours for them to drop the tank and swap pumps. I did notice an increase in power/acceleration. A few weeks after, the problems returned. Again, I scheduled an appointment and took my car back, another 5 hour day waiting, finally they told me that they "found nothing wrong, and that I should drop my vehicle off a Friday night, and leave it over the weekend." I asked the guy, why should I have my car sit in the lot for how many days, he stated that it's better if they start the car cold to get a better diagnosis. Sounds like a whole bunch of b.s. to me. I havent taken my car back, worse case if it breaks down I will call roadside and raise hell later.

I would recommend to any other Sebring owners to KEEP ALL WORK RECEIPTS, seeing as how they may try to give you some b.s. There is a fuel pump issue that Chrysler will not rectify, but at least hopefully the warranty will cover any future issues. The cost of a new pump supposedly was $500 some dollars which is a bit hard for me to believe, I only paid about $56 with the warranty and tax.

Sebring Touring 2.7L-Non Flex

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,244 miles

I parked my car at a buddies house for less than an hour. I went to start it-the car did its test with the gauges-turned it over and did not start. The fuel gauge was at 1/4 tank before I turned it over..after it would go to empty, and when i stopped cranking it returned to 1/4 tank. We checked all the fuses and relays-all is fine there...but we can not hear the pump working at the tank. I can not see where the pressure tester cap...so I can not check if there is pressure.
