2005 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #6

Sebring Touring 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,030 miles


I had previously replaced my front rotors and pads because they were warped, it's not even a year since then and the problem is back. The vehicle would feel like the brakes are not evenly gripping on the rotors when brake pedal is depressed.

This is BS, brakes gone at 28000 miles. Chrysler said they have a 12 month 12000 mile warranty on brakes. I asked them to tell me where in the owners manual to find this. I never got an answer. The manual did state that the pads were not covered, NOT A THING ABOUT WARPED ROTORS!

I bought this vehicle two years ago and have had so many people look at it and say its in my head. So all i can say is when my tires fall off from the shaking when the brakes are applied I guess my imagination will roll off with it. Go with me and feel the shake when I apply the brakes. But no visible damage or problems at the present time my ass. Tell that to my kids when mom don't come home.

Sebring V6

Just months after buying my car I noticed the rear brakes were going. The car had a little over 21,000 miles on it when I got it. I figured maybe whoever had the car before I did didn't maintain the car very well so I took the car to Chrysler and had it fixed. It was about $300. Well a couple of months later my front brakes started acting up. It was the same problem I had with the rear brakes, the damn rotors. I paid about the same amount for the repairs. Once it started to snow and the brakes got wet they started acting up again. I think it's the front ones this time. All I know is this car is really starting to suck, from the brakes to the horn issues I just don't need these problems, it's time to start looking for another car.

Sebring 2.7

  • Automatic transmission

Brakes are almost not working at all when wet I've been driving for 30 yrs many different types of cars I know about wet brakes this is not that at all. Dealer will not replace worn rotors due to "normal wear and tear" ON 36K miles!!
