I purchased my car used 3 yrs ago. I paid if off this year. The ongoing troublesome issue is that the car stalls out unexpectedly- usually during wet weather. It has happened about 5 times or so. But, it has almost happened many more times...the car sputters and just about stalls out. Again, all during wet weather. I contacted the dealership where I purchased car after the 1st incident. They took the car and said I needed a new battery ; that it was being drained when I had wipers, heat, radio etc all on at once and that was why it stalled. I went with it. Well, it has stalled several times since. All while driving and very scary. The power steering goes out. Another thing that may or may not be related...is that the dash lights flicker on and off; also a safety issue. I will be driving and all of a sudden can't see my speedometer or anything. I think there is definitely an electrical issue. I see that there have been recalls related to the electrical system. I just don't know what to do. I think they should look into this.

When turning steering-wheel to the left or right there is a knocking noise. The fix is the replacement of "gear-rack" with inner-tie-rods, and front-end realignment at a cost of $1000. This seems to be a chronic problem with this series of the Chrysler Sebring. Here's an example of the online chatter: www.sebringclub.net/board/viewtopic.php?F=32&T=26163

As I approached a stop light and had to stop, the engine stalled, and I had to restart it from the ignition. It happened on three other occasions (once in a left turn at a stop sign). The steering problem is progressively aggravating to the point of loosing power assist when I make a left turn, and occasionally a right turn, also. It started as a small inconvenience, but at this point, if I am not very careful when I make a left turn, the car would go strait instead of turning.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. While driving 40 mph, the vehicle shakes. The brakes fail to work properly and feel as if they are tapping on something when the pedal is depressed. When the contact turns the vehicle, there is a rubbing sensation. In addition, the cruise control does not work. The contact could not control the vehicle because it accelerated on its own. The ABS light illuminated on the instrument panel. The contact received a recall notice for the tire pressure monitoring system and electrical connectors and the vehicle was repaired. The dealer stated that the vehicle was not under warranty due to the recall that was issued. The vehicle will only be repaired at the contact's expense. The vehicle was diagnosed as having electrical failure. The NHTSA campaign id number was unknown. The failure mileage was 44,751 and the current mileage was unknown.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. While driving various speeds, the air bag indicator illuminated intermittently. The vehicle was driven to the dealer and they found no defects. Immediately following, the contact noticed that the steering column would make noise whenever turns were made. The vehicle was returned to the dealer and they stated that the vehicle was fine. No repairs were made. Six months later, the air bag indicator illuminated and steering column failed again. The contact returned the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the steering column was defective and needed to be replaced. The vehicle has not been repaired and the manufacturer has not been notified. The current mileage was 40,200 and failure mileage was 39,700.

I own a 2007 Chrysler Sebring bought new in Oct 2007. I have been having a constant vibrating problem with the braking system and/or tires since May 2008 and I did not know my brake system was covered under warranty up to 18,000 miles so I took it a Firestone dealer. At the time I had 15,000 on my Sebring and they told me that my brakes were wearing down due to my rotors eating my brad pads and I would need them to be resurfaced. So I paid out of pocket $120 to have them resurfaced and continued to have the same problem then when I had time I took my vehicle to the dealer in August 2008 and they informed me that I would need new rotors and brakes because Firestone did not properly put the brakes back on or something with the braker slider bridge. Well come to find out from the manager at Firestone, that my rotors should not have to be replaced at such low mileage and it is a manufacturers defect from the Chrysler corporation. Well I had to have them replaced because I work an hour away from my home and depend on my vehicles liability. I could not stand driving 2 hours everyday with constant vibration. So I paid $288 to have my rotors replaced and Firestone was kind enough to throw in the brakes for free. Well here it is October 18, 2008 and I am still having the same exact problem. I called Chrysler corporation and informed them of my problems and they just do not seem to care. I have been the route of the dealer and I keep getting the run around. Well when I step on my brake my vehicle sounds like it is revving up as in acceleration but still slows down, when I make left had turns I hear a clunk in the steering column and that has not been addressed because apparently there is nothing wrong with it. I am afraid that one day my brakes may fail when I am driving and I have 2 small children to be concerned about. I need this constant problem resolved.
