#68 of 112 Brakes, oil leakage, Vibration
Feb 26, 2007 (9:13 am)
I own a 1995 chrysler sebring. I put new brakes on in around september, i do drive it to work and etc. Now it has been vibrating for the last probably 3 months or so. Also, i have noticed i have a oil leak now. Can i fix the oil leak, because i am tired of putting oil in my car every couple of days or so. And the vibration is kinda worrying me too.

The brakes on the sebring actually start to tighten up during driving, slowly putting them on. You see this in the back alot and alot of people will hear grinding or feel abit of a tug. It also kills the pads very quickly. Also the heat from them alost being on all the time you drive, it makes the rotars warp. This gives masive amounts of vibration during breaking, and has even cause my friends car to feel like its being shaken side to side as he drives.
As for chrsysls take on it. They know about it, yet wont fix it. Nor will they warrenty any part thats installed.(Almost never)
Chrysler/Dodge has the most Warrenty Claim/Deny rating among every car company in the world. There a whole 70% lower then the second last company... GO DODGE GO

We have a 2004 Sebring Touring..The emergency light comes on and dings when you are going down hill and it also comes on when you push the brake (most times)..a few times it has come on when we are just driving. The emergency braske is not on and it does not seem to work when we put it on. The light just keeps coming on..Any ideas as to why??????

To all 2007 Sebring Owners - have any of you experienced a condition where when you slow down your vehicle you get a shimmy, vibration, or pulse that can be felt throughout the car but especially up in steer column & steer wheel ? - I was told by the dealer this is "a normal attribute for this vehicle" an answer that is unacceptable - I would like to hear from all who have a problem - I intend on fighting this with Chrysler

I was told by the dealer this is "a normal attribute for this vehicle"
I don't know if I'd call it a normal attribute - my '07 Sebring does not do this.
I have felt it pulse sometimes when I press the brake pedal but that's due to the ABS system and it only happens whenever there is snow or ice on the road.

yes thanks, I am in "sunny southern california" and the ABS pulse is for when you "stomp" on the brakes so they dont "lock up", this is a very light pedal application "coasting" to just slow down vehicle - no weather conditions affect this issue - thank you for responding

The pulse can be caused by warped rotors from overheating (stuck caliper) or improper lug nut torque.
Let us know how this turns out.

Hi!! I do not speak english that well, but I think I am having the same problem you do I bought 2007 sebring on december last year ,it was brand new but it had a discount because the year was almost over and they wanted to sell all 2007 vehicles. So after I month starded felling when I put the brakes on and almost coming to a stop it makes like a push or it pull it self to the front I do not know how to describe it, I took it to the dealer and they keep it there like three days and then they told me that they could not find anything wrong with it
But now it seems like it is doing more often and more harder . Please let me know if you have heard something about this and if it is the same problem you are having
