2006 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012007

I bought my Sebring sedan in may of 2006 with 5 miles on it. For starters, I immediately had issues with the radio cutting out. I took it back to the dealership asap, and they claimed to have fixed it, but didn't. my second problem was my horn. It all of a sudden started sounding muffled, if it sounded at all. I called about that problem and they told me to bring it in. Which I would have, but over that weekend out of nowhere, my car stalled out on me without any kind of warning lights or gauges. I called a local towing company to pick it up, and they immediately told me that they could see right off the bat that I had a large hole in my oil pan, and all of the oil had probably leaked out. So I told them just to go ahead and replace it and we would go from there, thinking that would be the end of it. Unfortunately, I was wrong. After they replaced the oil pan, they soon realized that my engine had seized. So assuming the dealership would be the ones to install the new engine, I had the car towed back to my house until I confirmed things with the dealership. I also figured that because the car was barely a year old, it should be covered under my warranty. I was wrong again. So, long story a little shorter, the dealership refused to pay for any of the new engine, nor did they even give me a good price on one. Their cheapest one was pretty much the price of another mechanics most expensive. So, because I had the engine replaced somewhere else, my warranty for almost everything else was void. Since then, I have had nothing but problems out of it, and its going to break down for good soon because I cannot afford to keep up with the problems. My engine light is currently on, and has been for about 6 months, I just recently had an antifreeze leak fixed, I think there may be a transmission problem, and my horn still doesn't work. Those are just to name a few. It has been the most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned. I am actually thinking of letting the bank just take it.
