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.

In the past 3 years that I have owned this vehicle each time is rains and/or humid my car would stall. I took it to 6 different mechanic shops as well as to Chrysler dealer near parma, oh (this was done in the span of three years). Unfortunately no one was able to find or to fix the problem. It seems quite dangerous as my car would stall as it is running, while I am driving (talk about unsafe). I noticed that the issue would surface when it is raining and/or very humid outside. My car would start to loose power, a bit of a engine hiccup, and then as I approach a stop or red light, the car would stall completely. Which means I need to put it in park, and restart the engine. Chrysler dealer checked it and said there is "no issues" but any time it rains I have this problem. Also they checked the computer and replaced some other recalled item, and computer does not show any errors. How can one drive a car that unpredictably stalls and no one, even the dealer, is able to locate and fix the problem?

While going 65 mph, the electronic throttle control sensor light came on and the vehicle began to lose power. It felt as though the gas pedal was not working and the speed dropped to about 30mph. After restarting the veh. The problem would correct itself for awhile. But eventually that no longer worked, and I had a mechanic replace the gas pedal. This too did not correct the problem. So when we drive it, at any time, the power deaccelerates and the vehicle slows way down. It also seems like it is not shifting into overdrive and revs at a high RPM.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
I purchased my car used 3 yrs ago. I paid if off this year. The ongoing troublesome issue is that the car stalls out unexpectedly- usually during wet weather. It has happened about 5 times or so. But, it has almost happened many more times...the car sputters and just about stalls out. Again, all during wet weather. I contacted the dealership where I purchased car after the 1st incident. They took the car and said I needed a new battery ; that it was being drained when I had wipers, heat, radio etc all on at once and that was why it stalled. I went with it. Well, it has stalled several times since. All while driving and very scary. The power steering goes out. Another thing that may or may not be related...is that the dash lights flicker on and off; also a safety issue. I will be driving and all of a sudden can't see my speedometer or anything. I think there is definitely an electrical issue. I see that there have been recalls related to the electrical system. I just don't know what to do. I think they should look into this.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 48,000 miles
Car turns off automatically at low speed. Brakes lock at the same time this happens. I took it back to dealer to get serviced, and they stated that nothing was found. The serviceman did tell me that he called the Chrysler Corp, and they told him they never heard of anything like this happening but on a forum on the internet, there are many complaints of this occurring. I told the man that it is a safety issue and how dangerous it is, and he agreed with me. This malfunction occurred two times already since I bought the car from the dealer. Fuccillo VW 2242 central avenue, schenectady, NY 12304 (518) 374-9161. My next issue is that I need sway bars. I brought the car back yesterday Dec 27, 2014, because as I was at a stop light, the light changed green, the transmission shifted gears at the same time I accelerated on the gas to go and I heard clicking for about a mile. The noise went away. I explained the problem to the serviceman and I was told that I need sway bars now. I just purchased the car in Sept of this year, and I'm so disappointed to encounter all these problems. My extended warranty does not cover the work. I also say that this has been wearing from the previous owner and I am not at fault, nor should I have to pay for the work. I seriously do not even want this car anymore, and I am paying for it monthly from a loan they gave me from capital one financing. This is chaos, and has exacerbated my illness of having Ms. I was duped. Please help.

Traveling at 60 mph the etc light begins to flash and the vehicle will not accelerate, although rpms increase significantly. This happens many times going downhill. Dealer was never able to repair. Resets if car is restarted, but this is not safe traveling at 60mph on the highway in traffic.

Car has tmps and airbag lights constantly coming on for no reason - they stay on for days or weeks and then shut off. Both chrylser and independent mechanic have never been able to diagnose. Also, engine will lose all power while in operation at both freeway speeds and low residential speeds along with auto-start randomly not working. Chrysler and independent mechanic were not able to diagnose. Tried replacing alternator and still happened. Replaced crank shaft sensor after looking at online forums of similar stores from other Chrysler Sebring owners and still occasionally happens. Airbag light is now back on for no reason... again. I know GM has been having numerous recalls yet mine has never been included in recalls for both my model and other makes/models having these issues. It is incredibly scary driving speeds of 75mph to lose all power. I have to pull brake, put the car in park and shut off/restart. I am constantly fearful of it happening and getting into a crash that could be fatal.
