1996 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #3

Recall #750 front lower control arm ball joint alleged repaired 02-10-98. This is a new (10-08-09) recall. Due to my vehicle was at the dealer, it was asked if the numbers of the ball joints and control arms numbers could be checked to see if original Chrysler or aftermarket quality parts were used. Though this is a serious safety issue, loss of steering, the service advisor advised I'd need to check the original repair order (02-10-98). The original owner is deceased. So I guess I should crawl under the car and look for wherever these parts are, let alone the numbers, or pay someone else to check them, or just hope Chrysler had and used their own parts.

This car has never been right and the car manufacturer has not been helpful nor will they acknowledge failed parts or discuss the problem. Begnal motors has been hostile and has claimed the vehicle rides as it should, the steering shaking is normal, etc.
