2008 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #5

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 66,694 miles


Almost every time I fill the gas tank, the gas spills or sprays out of the tank. No matter how slow I fill it. This is dangerous and I had this same issue with another 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible.

I am having issues when filling up my tank with gas. The pump shuts off and when I pull it out a couple of gallons will spray out. The shut off in the car is not working. I have read where others are having this issue too.

Sebring 4-cyl

When filling the vehicle with gas, the gas sprays back out of the filler tube after the automatic shut-off of the gas station pump. I would estimate one to two cups of gasoline spray out onto the pump handle, the side of the car, my clothes, and the drive. This is a forceful spray. This happens on the initial shut-off of the pump, unrelated to topping off the tank. This started around December of 2011 and happens at all gas stations. There is no noticeable slope to the drives at these gas stations and it does not matter which speed I use on the pump. It will happen if I use the slowest speed or if I set the pump handle to full speed. This is a safety issue! I see others online with the same complaints in Chrysler vehicles. What can I do?

I was cruising on route 27 North towards mount airy and my 2008 Chrysler Sebring suddenly stalls and I have to pull over. After having the car towed to nearest dealer, I was told the next morning that my car run out of gas even though the fuel gage still shows that I have quarter tank available. Dealer told me that the sending unit is broken.
