Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible 2.7 liter engine failure. This engine seized while I was driving luckily it I was only going 35 mph and I had time to pull the vehicle off the road. This vehicle has had an air bag light on since I bought it and no dealership has been able to solve the problem there has been numerous issues with the car throughout the three years I have owned it. I am a single parent who is without a car for over two months now but paying $350 a month on it. I have maintained this car on a regular basis and Chrysler has denied the claim even though every mechanic I have talked to says this is a common problem with the engine. I have to invest almost $5,000 in a car this month that blue books at maybe $8,000. I will never buy another Chrysler again and want anyone that is considering one of their products to reconsider. This issue can crush you financially I had to decide weather to let them repo the car and devastate me financially or to just save all of my extra money to make the repair. It has been the most financially devastating event in my life. I serviced this car regularly through individuals and sometimes jiffylube but it still was maintained. Regardless this is a well known defect and any vehicle that is only three years old and has 80,000 miles on it should not have a blown engine. I trusted this car would at least last me through my loan. This is irresponsible on Chrysler part for not taking some responsibility for these cars how could they abuse the public in this way.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,500 miles
2.7L V6 engine failure in our 2004 Sebring with 48,300 miles. The engine failed while driving, had to have the car towed and find a way back home 30 miles away. The dealership states the cause as oil sludge will not cover under 7 yr/70000 mile warranty. We complained that the car was not acting right on 3-26-06 and was told nothing wrong.
