Hey sandym23 I have a 2001 Sebring Coupe LXI with the 3.0 liter V6. Mine did the exact same thing at 122k miles. I was driving down the interstate and it was like the car was put into neutral. I had it towed to the guy that works on all my cars. At first he though it was the computer that controls the trans but it wasn't that. Now I don't know if you have the four door or the two door coupe but he told me that my trans was a sealed unit and that he couldn't even rebuild it. We decided to find a good used trans and swap it out. That only cost me about 900 bucks verses swapping it with a rebuilt one at the tune of 2,000 bucks. I was told there was some kind of flat bearing that went out. I would suggest finding a shop that would swap it out with a used transmission. Mine has been running fine since and that has been over 2 years ago. I hope this has helped you some.

#264 of 279 same problem
May 22, 2012 (5:48 am)
2 problems with my 2 cars Sebring 2007 & Sebring 2008:
1. The downshifting from 2nd to 1st is a constant problem; the car almost suddenly stops.
2. When put on "D" the car doesn't move forward unless I push the gas paddle a little bit.
I live in Libya, so please help me tell the mechanics what to do.
#266 of 279 Low Tranny Fluid I think.

My car doesn't want to move after I reverse or make hard stops. I have to give the petal a little gas before it jerks back in to gear and starts moving again. I think its low transmission fluid, but i'm not sure I only put a quart of trans fluid in and its still doing it. Do I need more or is it something else?
