I have a 2005 Sebring Convertible Touring. No I have not experienced any burning smell. I have 72000 miles on it. I live in the Dallas, Texas area and if you'd like to compare cars, with the hot spot area, I'm open to it.

last year we took the 2002 lxi to a local station(we have used with good results) as there was an oil leak? in the garage..they said it was a transmission leak which was normal with Sebrings and wantes about $500 to fix....as I did not see a transmission lleak as the issue(based on the colr and the level) ....I decided to wait...another center(while installing tires) said the leak was a normal chrysler transmission and certain gaskets, seals, etc....need to be replaces as part of normal maintenance ...again in the $500 to $600 tange....this LXI only has 40,000 milles on it....driven not hard , obviously , by my wife...I see that there does appear to be an oil lelak ...judged by the levels...(once I started watching it)...aside from the filter and the plug..what elase could be the culprit....
oil pan bolts(?)....just tired of being ripped off

To:charlessr: Whaaaat??? I have had my sebring touring'05 since '06 which now has 72000 miles. When first bought it had 11K miles on it. I have monitored the transmission level and have NOT had any leakage more than a few drops at a time, but definitely not to where the level was requiring addition of transmission fluid. I routinely get under my sebring with creeper and inspect for any leakage, and observe sometimes a wetness around the transmission lower pan, and never any on the garage floor. The transmission has not had any work done on it while in my possession. In my experience the transmission should be serviced for: new transmission fluid filter, (chrysler brand) and new transmission fluid at 80,000miles, and 150,000miles. IMO

I had this problem on my 2004, Tried to get back seat out to check the pump.
Spoke with Dealer, their remark was that their experience was that the problem was never related topping off fluid level. So I found that when the car was parked downhill there was never a problem.
The problem disappeared after installing a new battery!!!
You might consider replacing an old battery.
