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.

2008 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #6

This car has a faulty totally integrated power module (tipm). This caused several problems including: The car stalling suddenly while driving at about 50 mph on a straight road, the horn going off intermittently and uncontrollably both while the vehicle was stationary and while it was moving, and a check engine light that would not clear. I replaced the faulty tipm at my own expense and it resolved all these problems. Chrysler has issued recalls for tipms, but they have never recalled the 2008 Sebring. I have the original, faulty tipm out of the Chrysler that I can send for testing and verification.

Driving down a slight hill at 35mph using no throttle, the car stalled. No lights, no alarms. Realized it stalled when I had no power steering for corner. No power steering. No power brakes. Muscled car to stop safely, but if my 16yo daughter had been driving.... very scary. Car has stalled once while idling at a stop and stuttered like it was going to stall at a red light twice since the initial stalling incident.

After a few days of the windows not operating properly and the car hesitating at times during acceleration, it would not start after being parked for an hour. The vehicle was towed and it was diagnosed as the tipm was not working and that it had been supplying continuous power to the fuel pump and the wires were burned! this certainly sounds like a fire hazard. This repair cost over $1000 with $677.50 being for parts. I see that Jeep have been recalled and there are other similar complaints about the tipm for vehicles. Why is this not a recall item?

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


My car both in both park/drive will sporadically jump in RPM's for no reason. This has happened on 40+ occasions in which the vehicle will rev from 600 RPM's up over 3500 RPM's within a second. I called Chrysler and Chrysler stated that they have not have any reports from other vehicles and gave me no solutions to this problem. My check engine light is not on. I mentioned to Chrysler that I am afraid that my car is going to one day rev while I am driving and I will not be able to control it. I am afraid that I am going to either injure myself, passengers, other motorist and/or pedestrians. I have been at many stop lights and stop signs where it has revved and moved forward even with my foot firmly on the brake. I want to report this in case something happens, I do not want to be liable for the cars actions since Chrysler does not seem to want to take my issue seriously.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 94,000 miles
I lost power to my speed, my brakes failed. I was able to stop the car with my emergency brake. Once stopped I turned off my vehicle. Once I restarted the vehicle, the light did not come on however I still did not have the speed. My transmission would not shift from 3rd to overdrive. It would stay at 3000 RPM at 55 mph. My car normally runs @ 2500rpm or less up to 60mph. I do not know what I need to deo to have this issue resolved. This is my second time experiencing this with this vehicle. I also have a 2009 Chrysler PT CRUISER and owned a 2006 Chrysler Sebring and never have experienced this.
