My 2007 Chrysler Sebring caught on fire. Smoke was coming from the dashboard and steering area. The ABS light came on after the smoke. (ps there were no physical injuries, but mentally it's frightening, we're terrified to get back into that car! mentally 2 persons were injured.

Brake problems and surging problems with 2007 Sebring. This problem has been ongoing since I have owned my car. I already spoke to cbs3 on your side and they told me to file a complaint with you and call 1-800-lemon law.

I purchased a new 2007 Chrysler Sebring from a local dealership on May 30, 2007. On July 25, 2007 I was driving my vehicle and it was shaking when I applied my brakes. I immediately returned the car to my dealership and they had to resurface both rotors and resurfaced both rear drums. The mileage was 4108. In November 15, 2007 I returned my vehicle to the dealership due to brake light coming on when coming down any hill. Vibration was also noted at this time. Dealer checked and stated they could not find a problem. On March 24, 2008 I was coming off a hill from my job site when my brake light came on the car was making a grinding sound and I was unable to stop at the light in the intersection due to brake failure. The dealership did a road test and advised that the brakes were pulsating when hot. Pulled brakes and had to replace brake pads and rotors due to deterioration. On June 9, 2008 while driving the interstate my car began to shake when I would apply the brakes. While exiting from the freeway I was unable to stop at the intersection. The brakes were making a grinding sound and did not allow me to stop at the stop sign in the intersection. Once again I had no brakes. I returned the car to my dealership immediately and they checked the brakes. They advised me that they needed to resurface the rotors that were replaced by them in March 2008. This vehicle is a safety hazard and I fear that myself or my children are going to be involved in an accident where we will either be seriously injured or killed. My son who is disabled would have difficulty surviving any type of impact crash.
