2004 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

May 092004

Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,300 miles


Ongoing issue with 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible (limited edition) automatic transmission "clunking when changing gears", "not engaging gear selected" and twice transmission shift to high, then lower gear resulting in vechicle surging. First time this happened it caused the car to jerk straight forward (was in a curve) toward a bridge abutment. Second time the surging occured, was slowing down for a red light with a car in front of me. I barely missed hitting the car in front of me. Dealer replaced transmission pump, then notified me that the shift cable was broken. It was replaced. Vehicle continues all symptoms described, including new problem with clunking when shifted from park. This is new and was identified by dealer service department on 5/5/04. Dealer says they can't identify the cause so repairs cannot be made. I took the car back within days of taking possession in August 2003 only to be told that it was new and needed some time to break in.
