Sebring 2.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

Bought a 2004 Chrysler, Sebring. First week I had it the brakes were rubbing on the rotors making a grinding noise. The first time I brought it in, it was stated that they had been checked before I bought it, and they were in good condition. When another problem arose with my car, I brought it up again and when picking the car up I was told that the brakes and rotors where replaced. The company did come through and it was covered. I think more attention to detail when selling used cars needs to be addressed.

Sebring 2.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles

The proportional valves must not be set right, In the old style brakes the front pads wore out three time to the back brakes. Now they use about twice the pressure on the front brakes as the back, I wonder if that is why the front brakes heat up enough to warp the rotors. Or it could be just poor design and bad quality products.

Sebring LX

  • 27,000 miles

With under 25,000 miles rotors had to be turned now at 27,000 miles they have been replaced. Dealer blames "rust" build up from car sitting a few days at a time during rain storms or "riding brakes". I don't buy that... will trade ASAP
