problem #5

Aug 022006

(reported on)

Sebring Limited

  • 37,000 miles


Like the others the dealer indicates that I have to show 5 consecutive oil reciepts that cover the recommended oil change. If you changed yourself your s. o. l. I contacted Chrysler's C/S department only to be told it was the dealers decision. when I asked to talk to a supervisor or manager I was refused that priviledge. It appears Chrylser is covering up a huge problem with the 2.7l engine.

Sebring Limited

  • 39,000 miles

Replaced a cam sensor for $325 ran good for a week than a rod bearing broke. Dealership indicated oil sludge was found and the cause was user neglect. I had to produce oil receipts to their satisfaction. Called Chrysler HQ to complain and was told they backed the dealer.

Sebring LXI

  • 48,300 miles

Our transmission was rebuilt at 35,000 miles now they're telling us that our engine needs re-built because of oil sludge and its "not covered under warranty" unless I present oil change receipts. I've contacted an Ohio Lemon Law attorney.

Sebring XL

  • 56,000 miles

Oil sludge was quickly noted by mechanic who attempted to sell a new engine. However, I opted for a cleaning in the amount of $1000. From a brief google search it appears that engine oil sludge is a real problem with chrysler. Chrysler's lack of attention to this matter will certainly have this consumer looking to another manufacturer for the next vehicle!

I can't believe that more owners of this car aren't speaking up... Intrepid owners and sebring owners stand-up for our rights. They know that the 2.7 litre engine has problems with oil sludge and if you do not have documented proof of each oil change you're screwed.
