You are in the Chrysler Sebring
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Sebring, Convertible
#410 of 461 Re: Question about 1999 sebring convertible
Jan 22, 2010 (8:40 am)
Along the same lines, I bought a 1996 Sebring with 120k miles on it, and it runs great and looks great, too. It was a steal at $1200 because it had some cosmetic interior issues, but so far I haven't had a single problem with it. You just have to be careful and try to find an honest guy (boy that's hard).
#411 of 461 Sebring convertible - transmission problems etc, lemon law outcomes?
Jan 31, 2010 (11:20 am)
In August of 2008 I bought a 2006 Chrysler Sebring convertible with an extended warranty until 80k miles. Its been craziness since then... I have had it in the garage for transmission service 7 times and it needs to go back but I've given up on trying to get it fixes -- its a complete waste of time. About a month ago, a filed suit under the lemon law in PA. I have a feeling though that I am going to get offered a settlement of a lot less than what I owe on it considering Chrysler's financial status and the economy. Has anyone experienced this? Any luck on getting a fair offer? Any luck with counter offering?
I just want to move on from this car, it has be h*ll but I can't afford to buy a second car while still owning this one.
#412 of 461 Car won't start
Feb 23, 2010 (11:28 am)
I shut off my car to go into a convenience store and it wouldn't start up.
Replaced the fuel pump but that didn't resolve the problem....
Any suggestions....I am getting spark and the engine cranks over strong.???
#413 of 461 Got a problem
Mar 03, 2010 (4:52 pm)
1998 Chrysler Sebring
6 Cyl. 2.5L
Just bought this car for my Daughter and have had the following done with no results. (paid $1500.00, but put $695.00 on sales slip to help with sales tax, got boned)
Replaced plugs, rotor, dist. cap., wires
Checked out misfire Cyl 5, codes PO300 & PO305 found.
Leak down test (Good) for Cyl.5
Compression Test 172
Replace lower and upper intake Gaskets
Swap Injector & Spark Plug 5 & 6 No Change.
I also had to replace the Cat. Converter because it was broken up inside, the guy at the Garage said that could have been from the injector at 5 shooting to much gas and overheating the Cat.
Garage said the computer seems as if it was replace at some time because there is a sticker on it that says it has to be programed and New cars do not have these stickers.
He suspects a wire could be the problem but says it could take days to find it. I'm already into this thing for $1200.00 (parts & labor) on the of the $1500.00 I paid.
Any help would be appreciated.

have same problem and recently found out that there are cables under the seat and activate seatbelt.(not exactly sure why this is necessary) so make sure the cable/wires are connected, maybe they are loose or disconnected. hope this helps.
#415 of 461 Post 413 update, still need help
Mar 11, 2010 (2:03 pm)
I had three people look at it, the last guy told me it was more than likely a wire that had been chaffed and is rubbing or shorting somewhere. He suggested a Chrysler Dealer cause they know should know more about the car and places where that could happen. So the Dealer suggested a new Computer, after running up a $450 dollar bill, the car has all ready had a new computer put in it, we can tell this cause it has a Must be Programmed Tag. Bottom line is if a Chrysler Dealer can't fix it who can???
#416 of 461 2008 Sebring stalling in rain
Mar 12, 2010 (10:35 am)
We own a 2008 Sebring Convertible, and whenever my wife drives it in the rain it will stall, 30,45,55 mph, it doesn't matter, it just cuts out. It has a 4 cylinder, automatic. I'm getting no love from the dealership about this.
#417 of 461 RE: 2007 Sebring stumbling during acceleration in rain
Mar 22, 2010 (3:24 pm)
I have a 2007 Sebring Sedan, 2.4L - 4 Cyl, stumbling during acceleration when raining. The Sebring's computer is not posting any error code (or Check Engine Light). The first Chrysler dealer inspecting the car recommended a new throttle body; part replaced but did not solve the problem. After this, I replaced the MAP sensor; did not correct the problem. A few days ago, I took it to the third dealership where a new set of spark plugs was recommended and installed. However, this morning it rained a lot around here and the car began missing/stumbling again. I am heading back to the dealer.
