  • 93,608 miles


The contact owned a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. When the contact approached a traffic light, another vehicle crashed into the front driver side of the contact's vehicle and caused it to spin twice. The driver side air bags deployed without air inside of the them, allowing the contact's chest to strike the steering wheel and driver side window. A police report was filed. The contact was transported to the hospital and sustained trauma to the head, a concussion, a strained neck, and back pain injuries. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 93,608.

In December of 2011 I took my car into moss bros. Chrysler of san bernardino due to the air bag light for the drivers seat going on and off. They checked the problem out and determined that when the drivers seat is all the way back that the seat adjuster spring is broke and damaged wiring to the seat track sensor. Recommended to replace seat adjuster and wiring. These are the words used by the mechanic as to what the problem is. Chrysler was contacted with a request to repair the problem at their cost, and that was denied. I have made contact with Chrysler concerning this matter and was told the same thing, that I would have to pay to have this problem repaired. Over the last two years the problem has come and gone. Now the problem has come back up again. I am in fear of the air bag going off on its own or not operating properly if involved in an accident. I am tired of pursuing this matter with Chrysler and finally just gave up. After talking to a mechanic friend of mine he told me to contact your Agency to see if you can get me some sort of solution to this problem. Right now I am having the air bag light problem daily and am very concerned about my safety and others that may be in my car with me. I do hope that you are able to help me get this problem taken care of. I can not afford to pay the $1000 plus dollars that I was quoted for the repair. I am a disabled senior citizen living on just my social security disability and do hope that you will be able to resolve this problem for me. Thank you for your time concerning this matter and I do look forward to hearing from you. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Air bag sensor will not turn off. It stays on while I am driving and while the car is at rest. It has been doing this for almost two weeks. I know that it is not the weight because I do not have anyone or anything sitting in the passenger seat. And even if someone is sitting in the passenger seat it still stays on.

The air bag indicator light will turn on and ding. This happens at random speeds for no reason as well as when moving the seat. See recall, mfg's report date June 5, 2007 for the componets: Air bag : frontal on Chrysler Sebring 2007 NHTSA campaign number : 07V-240 safety recall G14. However when I call Chrysler I was informed my VIN does not match the vehicles that were in the recall, therefore it is my responsibility to correct this repair. When I asked kelly with whom may I speak to I was informed no one. She will enter the information in her system.

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.

This is a recall item for models right around the same time as my Sebring was built, I have called chry but they will not take responsibility. The air bag light stays on!! my air bag clock spring failed and my air bag warning light illuminated. I'm told by the dealer that my air bag will now not work, and my cruise control & steering wheel horn. This is a serious safety issue & I need to get it repaired quickly but at a cost of over $220, I can not afford. This should be paid for by daimler Chrysler!.

Attempted to start vehicle in the morning, turned the key to crank motor and the engine would not start but continued to crank. Eventually it stopped cranking, I attempted to start vehicle again then it started. Began driving my car down the highway and the air bags light started going off and stayed on for the rest of my drive. Also while driving around corners the brake light will go off as well as going down some hills.

When my husband drives my car, he moves the seat back. When I drive my car, I move the seat forward. This action causes the airbag light on the dash to come on. When I move the electronically controlled seat forward/backward, the airbag light will "sometimes" go off. The NHTSA ref 07V240000 references a recall for the front seat track position sensor. I contacted Chrysler to see if my car is one that has been recalled. I'm told that it is not. I think it should be.

When my husband drives my car, he moves the seat to the very back position. When I drive my car, I move the seat forward. This action causes the airbag light on the dash to come on. When I move the electronically controlled seat forward/backward, the airbag light will go off. The NHTSA ref 07V240000 references a recall for the front seat track position sensor. I contacted Chrysler to have the repair initiated; however, they said my car (although same year, make and model) is not part of the recall.

First two complaints have been recalled and serviced. Said recalls were for # 1 engine stalling and # 2 driver airbag under seat sensor illuminating on and off on dash. Even after the service was performed for the recalls, I still have engine stalling during stops and on deceleration the vehicle threatens to stall. I need to keep giving gas and on humid days that is indicative of possible rain the threat is more often. The second recall complaint that I am still experiencing is the air bag illuminator on dash for the drivers side goes on and off and the wires under the drivers seat are involved when driver seat moves front or back. Stalling is a safety issue that can cause personal injury or death to occupants in this car or nearby cars sharing the road. Also the air bag sensor problem keeps me in fear that the airbag will not deploy when necessary or will deploy accidentally on its own while the vehicle is in motion. I also have a complaint that the car when braking for a stop continued to rev causing me to use the emergency break and I had to shut off the car to stop the car totally.I have noticed that this issue is common with other peoples complaint and an inquiry would seem imminent for safety reasons. The dealership knowing the recalls have not secured the proper handling of my vehicle's safety wants to charge a diagnostic fee or a service fee when it is clear that the proper service was not rendered causing recall malfunctions to this date. For the two complaints that have recalls that I am inquiring about need to be addressed to the dealership asap for service and I would appreciate the outcome of this complaint in writing. As for the accelerator problem I would like to be kept abreast if a safety issue is mandated for the repair of that complaint. Thank you.

My airbag light comes on frequently and remains on most of the time. I took it to goldstein Chrysler Jeep Dodge in latham NY. I was charged $120 for diagnostics and I was told it was an airbag sensor that would cost upward of an additional $450 to repair. I found there was a recall issued by the national highway traffic safety association for this problem with the 2007 Chrysler Sebring back in June of 2007. The recall campaign # is NHTSA-07V240000. I called diamler Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 to get the problem resolved and to recover the $120 I paid to the goldstein dealership for an issue that was covered in a recall. Diamler Chrysler said they had no recall for an airbag sensor on the 2007 Sebring. I called back the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 and confirmed the recall was in fact issued. I filed a case with the NHTSA, and they referred me to the federal trade commission at 1-877-382-4357 where I also filed a report. The ftc also referred me to the nys consumer protection board. Complaints to them must be filed in writing. I requested a complaint form. I called diamler Chrysler back and filed a case. I contacted the dealer customer service management back, where I sensed there wasn't the least bit of sympathy or concern for my family's safety.

I bought my 2007 Chrysler Sebring brand new April 2007. After about a year (or less) and well under 20,000 miles the gas cap light would not go off, windshield wipers went off sporadically even in the "off" position, got stuck in park, fuel tank had to be replaced (which went out while I was driving), air bag light won't go off, etc. Had all these problems fixed only to have many of them recur. They were all fixed under warranty. Now after 36,000 miles and no warranty, the problems I have now are the windshield wipers still won't go off, my electric windows sometimes won't work at all (driver's side specifically), air bag light won't go off but occasionally when driver's seat is moved backward and forward but always returns, car will stall at times when pressing the gas pedal while driving. After the windshield wipers began going off again, took it to Chrysler dealership in my town...they contacted Chrysler to see if they would replace it again and they refused. All the recalls I read about that appear to pertain to my vehicle, Chrysler says my VIN is not a part of the recall (even though it's happening to my car too)! I will never buy another Chrysler vehicle for myself, or anyone in my family again! problems with this car started early and never went away.

I was S/B on I-75 in Kentucky at approximately the 56 mp when I fell asleep. The front end struck the end of a guard rail and then the car swung around, slid sideways, and rolled over stopping on it's left side. No air bags deployed. The vehicle had both front and side air bags. The Kentucky state police, post 11, took the report and the mount vernon, ky fire department got us out. No was injured thanks to seat belts but the air bags should have deployed. The fire department was concerned that the side air bags would deploy when they used the 'jaws' to cut the side posts but this did not happen either.

I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. While I was driving to work, the car idled down and was about to cut off, as when I stopped on a red light the car completely shut off. I had to turn the ignition key to "off" and turned it back on. Also, the airbag light keeps coming on and off. What is wrong!" any recalls on these yet"
