agreed, they advised me they had "turned" (machined) the rotors prior but apparently not right & when dealing with Chrysler under "warranty" they sometimes make poor business decisions, I even offered to pay up front and if successful then they pay me back - and of course the answer was no -
thanks for the help

I have a 07 sebring touring that I bought on December 07 , I been having problems with it since I bought it , first when coming to a stop I can feel like a tug or push to the front , this is always that I am stoping !!!! and a a noise that I do not know if it comes from the engine but it is almost like a when you ear an airplane's turbine from far away you can hear it when you are about to run the car and also when coming to a stop, and occasionally it also makes a squeeking noise when I turn left I had took it to the dealer three times already because of these they keep it for a week almost every time and told me that the tug and the noise was "normal" and that they could not find anything when it turn to the left that I need to wait if something came up on the car panel or a bulletin or recall, so I took it to home and two weeks later it broke down now this piece of shit is stuck in parking , I had to call the wreck truck to pick it up!!!!! T his is the 4th.time now and I only have six months with this car and it only has 6,400 miles on it , what can I do so they can pay attention to me???? does any one know?

sorry does not sound like same problem I had - as far as who you can call - try the toll free number for Chrysler Corpotate, file a complaint with them, or try another dealershp, thats what it took to get my car fixed right - then if unsusessful, go right to the Dept. of Consumer Affairs - good luck to you

hi, thanks for your information I called the 1-800 number for chrysler and they talked to the dealer and give me a case/reference number & told me that they are looking for the piece that need to be replaced for the gear stuck in parking,
until then they are going to check everything else , for mean while I am driving a rental they gave me.
Hope this works and it can finally be fixed
thanks again for your help.

I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring and the rear brake caliper on the passenger side is locked up wearing down the brake pads in weeks. I installed a new brake caliper and it's still locked up. SOS!!!! Does anyone have any ideas on what to check next????

My experience is slightly different to the vibrating brakes. I agree that generally it is caused by warped rotors which I have experienced many times. However in this case the vibration came soon after putting on new good quality rotors. upon checking the rotors were not warped. In stead the brake pad holder on the slider had worn groves into the slider & would stick there . If the brake were applied gently the pad holder would stick in the grove, the calipher would deform the brake pad causing the vibration. If i jamed the brakes on hard the pad holder jumps off the grove & braking is smooth. I filed the groves out of the slider, rounded the pad holder surfaces & regreased, but it is not a permanent fix. The pad needs a hard smoothclip on & grease to work smoothly. The slider seems to be made of too soft a material
Has anyone had a similar problem? Are there hardened clips to go over the slider?

I know you wrote this quite a while ago, but I have been having the same problem, since september of 07... did you ever get any feedback as to what this was or what it might be??? I don't know what I'd do if what happened to you happened to me... I've often wondered if my wheel would fall off or my front end drop out because it just sounds so terrible...please let me know... thank you!

Hi ,sorry to ear you too have problems .
Sorry to say It never got fixed I took it to the dealer six times already and they keep on telling me that this is normal ,the bad thing I live in Laredo and there is only one authorize dealer from chrysler .
I already talked directly to Chrysler but still nothing had been done for any of the two problems I have with my car. This is the worst car ever!!! I am just waiting to have a chance to change it for another one. Hope to ear from you with good news.
