Hi , I do not own this sebring 07 anymore, but they never figure it out what is this humming noise and the jerks -or- push that it made when coming to a stop.
Got tired of taking it to often to the dealer. One time the told me that Chrysler knew about this noise and they were trying to find out what was it., that as soon they had any news they will let me know.....and still no news.
This was the worst car I ever had, it's very pretty but too much problems.
Hope you can find out what's wrong and wish you good luck

#95 of 112 cruise control problems and braking problems
May 28, 2009 (7:03 pm)
I have a 2008 Sebring hardtop convertible. A very nice car when it runs correctly. Last month I drove to California. When going uphill with the cruise control on the car would just keep accelerating. Tapping on the brake should have turned off the cruise control but it was like hitting a brick wall with my foot. I had to turn it off manually. I just picked the car up this evening after having it in the shop for 2 weeks and it now has other problems. When stopped at a light the ESP light and the electronic throttle control light came on and flashed. The car began running very jerly and sort of jumped forward. In addition I have had it in 4 times now for a very low groaning noise when making a left turn. Anyone have these problems? How did they get corrected??
#96 of 112 Brakes/Front end click
Aug 12, 2009 (4:36 am)
I have a 2001 LXI. I have new rotors and pads all around. When I first get into my car and take off the front brakes make a loud clicking noise. It goes away after driven a few blocks and will not do it again until I park it, then get back in it and go. Any suggestions ?

I just found your message. I bought an new 2007 sebring Touring. Do you still have a problem? It took me a while for them to fix it . They had to put a new break booster in the car At first they said they could not find anything wrong with the car, but I refused to pick it up until they fixed it. I told them this is a safety issue. A car pulled in front of me on the interstate and when I hit the breaks the car kept going. I had to SLAM the brakes to unset the cruise control. I called the dealer right away and took the car in that afternoon. I could make it do it if I had the cruise on going up hill. Then I would I made the service manager take the car home then he found the problem. New break cylinder and booster. Has not done it since. I also had the loss of power and they told me maybe water was in the gas. They told me how to reset it and it worked. The groaning noise drove me nuts. It happened to me but when I would take it in I could not make it do it. Finally they heard it. They replaced the steering rack and they said there was metal pieces in the powersteering pump so they replaced it. The car still made the noise but was better. The dealer went out of business so another dealer looked at it and said the problem was the first dealer did not tighten the bolts on the replacement parts they put in the frontend.
Needless to say I was very disappointed as They would test the car and say there was nothing wrong with it until I finally could duplicate it with the mechanic in the car. It is funny how before they could find "nothing wrong" with the car until THEY heard the noise, all of a sudden it needs major front end steering work.
The car has been fine for the last year and the warranty is up.
#98 of 112 2007 Seabring Break Problems
Jun 04, 2010 (12:35 pm)
I have a 2007 Seabring that all of a sudden is having what I believe are break problems. It is such a hard noise to explain. However, it only happens when I am in consistent stop and go traffic on the high way. If I use my breaks going 65 mph it makes no noise at all. However, if I'm going 20-30mph it makes this noise (knocking, I cannot really explain). The car has been to the dealership 4 times. They've replaced the Swaybar and breaks and they cannot figure it out. It does not make this noise all the time. I dont know what to do. Has anyone ever experienced this before.
#99 of 112 96 sebring brake problem
Jun 06, 2010 (8:28 am)
96 Sebring Conv - brakes get hot after about 5 mins in stop n go during hot weather. Brakes go out to the floor and car pulls sharply to right. I can smell a burning smell and hear a loud air flow when I press the pedal. Once the car cools and the outside temperature goes down I have brakes again but still hear the loud whish of air everytime I press the brakes. I have no fluid loss, in fact it looks a little over-full to me. I'm not sure if I should be hearing this air sound when I press the brakes and am worried about them getting hot and going out in stop n go summer traffic. Any ideas what could be causing this problem?

#102 of 112 2004 Sebring Front Brakes BAD
Jul 15, 2010 (9:33 am)
I had these checked out at numerous Chrysleer Service DEalerships they all say the brake shoes are good but they never address the Rorors, The Brakes are Horrible right now I never had any service on the brakes after 6 years and 70,000 miles yet the technicians say my brakes are fine only after looking at the pads, they never test driven the car nor have they every looked at the fluid level. The Service technicians are WORST then the Chrysler Cars themselves. Never again Will I by a Chrysler Product nor any car thats under their umbrella such as Dodge, etc.
