#43 of 64 Re: 2007 2.4LT sebring touring whine (noise) at high speed? [sbc20]
Jul 28, 2008 (2:40 pm)
I have the same problem. Bought the car new and after only 300 miles on it noticed the problem when driving in the city. The gas pedal whines. But on highway there is a loud annoying wind sound that sounds like it is coming through the windshield. I have brought this car back to dealership 3 times and it is there again today. No one seems to know what is causing any of this and I am missing too much work for a brand new vehicle repair. If not resolved this week I am looking into lemon law process. This is unacceptable for a new car! I will not buy another Chrysler or at least not one from the dealership I am working with!!! Anyone have answers out there?
#44 of 64 I still love this car !!!

I have had my 07 sebring limited for about a year now, and I am still very happy with it. The gas mileage had improved over time, and everything still works like a charm (with over 20 k I only had to replace a bulb). I find the seats very comfortable and the car is very quiet. I have the 2.4 liter engine which seems to have a lot of power and pick up. I love this car !!!

Kind of makes you wonder what some of these "professional" magazine reviewers don't see that we, as owners, do.
I have an 07 Sebring Limited with the 3.5L and I simply love it. The MyGIG with nav and all the other gadgets it came with is like my playground on wheels. It has a very quiet and smooth ride and decent fuel economy. I'm getting 21-22 mpg combined city/hwy. Only one mostly highway trip thus far when it was new but got 26 mpg.
I just finished its 9,000 mile oil change. I read your other post about your 20,000 mile report. I'm looking forward to many years of fun with this car.

#47 of 64 Dual or single exhaust?
Jan 03, 2009 (11:58 am)
I have an 07 Sebring and i bought a Gibson dual cat-back exhaust for my car. Right now my car is a single exhaust. When I bought it, It did say that it will fit my car. I want to ask if anyone knows if my car is made to have a dual exhaust? If anyone can answer that for me that would be amazing.

my 07 sebring touring started stalling a few days ago. i notice when the engine is idle in drive/reverse/neutral the rpms dip low like every 30sec-2min like its going to stall. eventually it dies after a while of this. also happens while making a slow turn. just dies completely no warning lights or anything. it starts back up no problem. happened as i was pulling into the post office and nearly got rear ended. glad it hasnt happend in an intersection yet! this is very dangerous not to mention embarrasing. bought new in sept 07 and has 9100 miles on it atm. also engine seems to have a gurgle to it when i press the gas pedal - its a really noticeable gurgle if you gun it. also the car seems to have a downshift to it sometimes as i'm slowing somewhere in the 25-30 mph range.
taking it into the dealer 02/13/09

please post how your dual exhaust and slalling problem worked out respectively. I am curious if i could do dual and want to be aware of any problems i should look for. Thanks
As for me so far so good, although I've kept her garaged since the new year 5 snowstorms here in NYC, Been using the beater. Taking her out for a trip to AC this week to roll over the gas.
I think I had posted earlier about buying a mygig on ebay. It works great and was the easiest car radio Ive ever installed in a car. It has a 20 gig hard drive but you really only have about 10 gigs for media as the rest is used for firmware. For me thats plenty. you can find the non gps one for less than $200 now.
#50 of 64 new 07 sebring owner w/ no car knowledge

could you perhaps link me to compatible mygig systems, with and without navigation? i ran a search on bay, but as i have little to no knowledge of cars, i couldn't ascertain which systems were compatible with an 07 sebring (and i didn't see it written anywhere).
to all 07 sebring owners...
also, im looking for chrome pieces for my exterior (grille, door handles, pillars, etc.). can anyone direct me to a legit website from which i can purchase these?
last but not least, is the base 07 sebring compatible with HID headlights? if so, where can i purchase HID headlights that will fit my sebring? if not, how and where can i convert my sebring so that it is compatible.
thanks for your time.

On the MyGIG question just go to eBay and type in something like "mygig sebring". There are currently 23 MyGIG units and related items being sold.
Be sure you get one that is compatible with your 07 Sebring. It uses a low speed Bus. If the description doesn't mention the Bus speed ask before bidding.
MyGIG radios run on two different Bus systems, a low speed Bus (CAN B) and a high-speed Bus system (CAN C). MyGIG radios designed for a high-speed electrical bus will not work on a vehicle with a low-speed bus, and vice versa.
Also, the MyGIG RER includes the nav. Be sure yours includes the GPS antenna. The REN version does not have nav.

thank you for that information. i now know to look for RER (navigation) and to make sure it has a GPS antenna.
and REN doesn't include navigation.
thanks a lot!
