2007 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #5

Most recently the electronic throttle control light came on, the owners manual indicates that the vehicle may loose control of speed and cause an accident. Further research indicated that this was a common problem and that people have lost control of there vehicles and or been in accidents as they were unable to slow down or stop do to this issue. Many of the complainants on line were individuals with young children as I am and have serious concerns for injury or death. Local dealers had issues resolving the problem. My second issue which is also a common issue for Chrysler owners is that the instrument cluster lights go out and cease to work and you will not be able to see any of your instruments at night such as your speed, tachometer, gas gauge, engine temperature ect. This is a big safety concern as you can not see your speed at night or early in the morning when kids are going to school and reduced speeds are in affect, as well as being able to know if your running out of gas or car is overheating causing further damage. I did although find a recall for different models with gas gauge issues as a safety concern for running out of gas. This instrument cluster issue has to be far worse than the gas gauge recall as it causes the same concerns plus several more in just one problem. When I called the recall line they said that its not on the recall list but was able to confirm the gas gauge issue I attached below. Fuel gauge may overstate fuel level models : Chrysler Sebring, Dodge avenger engine, March 16, 2009 the began March, 2009. The Chrysler recall number is J02. I will be forwarding this complaint and posting to the executives of Chrysler as well as my local media, and insurance company for validity of my complaint. I hope to be contacted for this issue to be resolved.

Engine is stalling once car is cranked. When pressing the brakes to put car in reverse or drive, the car cuts off. Once able to get into drive and try to drive, the car's brakes can not be touched or the car will stop instantly. The car also does stop and go driving like it's pulling on something heavy.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 600 miles
I purchased the vehicle in may of 2007 and within the first few months the car stopped for no apparent reason while driving on 3 separate occasions. The incidents startled me greatly that I requested to receive a new car. The dealership refused and had someone fly in from los angeles, ca to fix. Now after 5 years the car is doing same thing. I presented this safety issue to the manager of the dealership by the name of [xxx]. [xxx] proceeded to tell me that since I did not use him for my servicing that he would not assist me. He flatly told me how could he help me when he didn't make any money off of me. I've been told by other people with this same vehicle that they had the same problem of stopping without any notice. This is dangerous and can cause death or a terrible accident. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
