I was going about 55 mph when the electronic throttle control light came on. It was flashing with made it impossible to reach speeds over 40 mph. I was a danger on the highway because I was unable to maintain speed as well as the vehicle hesitating. It took me 1hour and a half to travel 35 miles. The next day started it and the light went out, I have been afraid to drive it. No one seems to have an easy answer.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
I was driving the vehicle on the highway. The etc light came on and the car would not accelerate. Coasted to the side of the road, turned car off, then back on and it ran fine. It has done this at least 30 times since. Now my etc light blinks and car will only go 10-20 mph, slows to 5mph going up any grade. Idle is rough and idles between 1500 and 2000. Sometimes when I first start the car it will run okay for about 2-3 minutes then etc light suddenly come on, car decelerates and I have almost been hit several times. Now the brake light comes on and off as does the check engine light. The dealer does not know what is wrong. This seems to be a common problem with this model vehicle. Chrysler needs to do something before someone is seriously injured or killed. I will never buy another Chrysler product because they will not fix this problem, always say they do not know what the problem is.

I got ready to leave work and my car would not start. It kept turning but would not start. I had it towed from Virginia to Maryland to the dealership. After a diagnostic test it was discovered that the fuel pump pin melted out of the module. When I asked the dealer what causes the pin to melt, I was told that it was a wiring problem and that it could have possibly caused the car to catch on fire. I had to have it repaired and it was expenses. As I completed a search, I discovered that there were several other complaints regarding this same problem.

Eventually it stopped cranking, I attempted to start vehicle again then it started.

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.

When my husband drives my car, he moves the seat back. When I drive my car, I move the seat forward. This action causes the airbag light on the dash to come on. When I move the electronically controlled seat forward/backward, the airbag light will "sometimes" go off. The NHTSA ref 07V240000 references a recall for the front seat track position sensor. I contacted Chrysler to see if my car is one that has been recalled. I'm told that it is not. I think it should be.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact took the vehicle to a mechanic where it was determined that the wiring harness was exposed and could have been corroded. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign id number: 08V152000 (electrical system) but was advised by the manufacturer that the vehicle was not included in the recall. The failure mileage was 88,000 and the current mileage was 114,928.

I purchased the vehicle listed above in 2011 at city auto plaza while under warranty. The vehicle served my purpose as it was for work and now school only fuel efficient. About 6 or 7 months ago I began to experience an intermittent problem with vehicle it would crank but not start. I would have the vehicle towed to my local mechanic and not faulty codes were discovered. This happened about three or four times until frustrated I parked the vehicle around the first of February 2013 and used my other vehicle for school. The other day I decided to have the vehicle looked at by another local dealership near my home not the Chrysler dealership were purchased my dealing with the dealership folks are not positive or beneficial to me. The mechanic at buddy rays auto care in canon city checked the vehicle and traced the problem to a connection wiring system that was attached to the fuel pump. From their explanation the vehicle was in danger of catching fire if this problem persisted. I contacted my local dealership in an attempt to report this matter and they have not assisted telling me instead that the car had to be in their shop. Because of the danger posed by this problem I have had the vehicle repaired at a cost of $765 dollars to replace the fuel pump, and wiring connectors plus labor. My concern for this car having less than 100,000 miles in my opinion should not have face this type of malfunction in the fuel and electrical system.

First two complaints have been recalled and serviced. Said recalls were for # 1 engine stalling and # 2 driver airbag under seat sensor illuminating on and off on dash. Even after the service was performed for the recalls, I still have engine stalling during stops and on deceleration the vehicle threatens to stall. I need to keep giving gas and on humid days that is indicative of possible rain the threat is more often. The second recall complaint that I am still experiencing is the air bag illuminator on dash for the drivers side goes on and off and the wires under the drivers seat are involved when driver seat moves front or back. Stalling is a safety issue that can cause personal injury or death to occupants in this car or nearby cars sharing the road. Also the air bag sensor problem keeps me in fear that the airbag will not deploy when necessary or will deploy accidentally on its own while the vehicle is in motion. I also have a complaint that the car when braking for a stop continued to rev causing me to use the emergency break and I had to shut off the car to stop the car totally.I have noticed that this issue is common with other peoples complaint and an inquiry would seem imminent for safety reasons. The dealership knowing the recalls have not secured the proper handling of my vehicle's safety wants to charge a diagnostic fee or a service fee when it is clear that the proper service was not rendered causing recall malfunctions to this date. For the two complaints that have recalls that I am inquiring about need to be addressed to the dealership asap for service and I would appreciate the outcome of this complaint in writing. As for the accelerator problem I would like to be kept abreast if a safety issue is mandated for the repair of that complaint. Thank you.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The contact started the ignition and the instrument panel cluster displayed a dim lighting and then suddenly failed to illuminate. The failure occurred sporadically and also when the vehicle was in operation. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who replaced the instrument panel cluster. The failure recurred after the repair. The vehicle had not been repaired for the second failure. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 14,000 miles
I bought my 2007 Chrysler Sebring brand new April 2007. After about a year (or less) and well under 20,000 miles the gas cap light would not go off, windshield wipers went off sporadically even in the "off" position, got stuck in park, fuel tank had to be replaced (which went out while I was driving), air bag light won't go off, etc. Had all these problems fixed only to have many of them recur. They were all fixed under warranty. Now after 36,000 miles and no warranty, the problems I have now are the windshield wipers still won't go off, my electric windows sometimes won't work at all (driver's side specifically), air bag light won't go off but occasionally when driver's seat is moved backward and forward but always returns, car will stall at times when pressing the gas pedal while driving. After the windshield wipers began going off again, took it to Chrysler dealership in my town...they contacted Chrysler to see if they would replace it again and they refused. All the recalls I read about that appear to pertain to my vehicle, Chrysler says my VIN is not a part of the recall (even though it's happening to my car too)! I will never buy another Chrysler vehicle for myself, or anyone in my family again! problems with this car started early and never went away.

Gas cap light has come on at least 10 times--stay on for 2-3 days, then go off for no reason-was at a local mechanic several times--been reset over and over. Radio keeps blowing a fuse-replaced at least 7 times. Headlights are delayed coming on when they are turned on. Now at 91,000 miles-vehicle refuses to start--tries to turn over, but wont. Had at local mechanic for 1 week-no codes will come up. Several components replaced-still refuses to start... now being towed to Chrysler dealer----and VIN#--is not listed on recall.

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 98,000 miles
My was making a loud knocking sounds while increasing speed, then sound would go away. Took it to dealership an they stated I didn't have any problems with my car. June 2011, my car started stalling while at stop light, now my car is wanting to stall while I'm driving around 50mph. Dash lights also flicker on and off. Chrysler dealership states they can't find anything wrong with my car since it's not giving them codes but recommend I replace the engine. I've been reading reviews of the same problems with this car company and there cars. How are they not responsible for all these motors people are having to replace, I think they should have to fix these problems an not get away with it.
