rear view brake light needs replacement, failed inspection because of, dealer wants me to leave car to figure out how to replace bulb which requires removing hard top, opening trandeu and you can see light wiring going into trandeu.simple project for me & hubby but do not want to break plastic screws to get to wiring. go to dealer and informed that this is a 7 hour project at $63 per hr.(but he'll work with me) what!! $441 labor to replace a bulb. he informed me that removing the hard top is major project. it takes 2 people (because of weight) to lift off top. what is the major project? i liked the dealer up to this repair but i refuse to pay this kind of money even for an hours work to replace a bulb.

all of the brake lights, including the high center one, suddenly failed without any indication to the operator. the vehicle was driven for an unknown number of days in this condition until a near-accident revealed the defect. the vehicle was used to transport my wife and 9 year old son to and from school and on various errands around town.*ak my wife and son were almost struck from the rear by another vehicle whose driver did not realize that they were braking for a traffic light. the next day, the vehicle was returned to the dealer for repair. after determining that the bulbs, fuse and brake switch were operational, the dealer replaced the intelligent power module (ipm) which supplies power to the brake light circuit. i do not know if the old module is available for inspection. the dealer stated that he had never seen this type of failure before.

is there some regulation about the new led tail lights? many of them flicker at a low frequency, like a strobe light, that is very distracting. tests in the computer industry for crts have shown that 60hz flicker, while invisible for many, is very distracting for around 1/3 the population. 72hz is better, but 80hz is necessary to cover 95%+ of the population. since leds have faster response and since there is little or no cost to do it right, led tail lights ought to flicker at 200hz or higher. the reason they are pulsed in the first place is to provide better brightness electronic control, but there is no reason to flash so slowly. *jb

i own a 2002 chrysler sebring with approx. 35k mileage. the transmission started acting funny about three weeks ago. it would not budge when in drive gear or would stall at red light. it was worse when cold. i took it to chrysler dealer in greenvale, new york. they indicated a transmission leak requiring change of transmission oil and cleaning, even though chrysler manual itself does not indicate transmission service before 45k mileage. they changed the transmission lines and hoses and charged me over $400 for the service. chrysler fails to acknowledge a design defect requiring this service. ultimately, i discovered that you have received many complaints regarding the same issue and also outright transmission failure which chrysler fails to address. i know that a recall was issued by nhsta for 2001 chrysler sebring regarding similar issues. perhaps it is time you issue the same recall for 2002 chrysler sebring. even better, please issue a cease and desist order against all american manufacturers of crap they call motor vehicles, so we need not make similar complaints in the future. *jb

when i purchased the car in january 2014 it had 58,000 miles on it. one week after purchase the right rear brake light blew out. i went back to the dealership (carmax) and had it replaced.no problem. three months later the light has blown again. i get a mechanic to look at it, needs a socket replacement. #issue 1 in may 2014, there was a slight elevation in the temperature (high 80's), i wanted to try on the a.c., when doing so i heard a "pop" that sounded like it came from the vent. i thought maybe it came from not being used for awhile. the air did not blow cold right away, it took about 15 mins before the car began to cool. now on the second attempt to run the a.c., the same things happened (the "pop", 15min cooling time) but a new problem came up...when i put the car in park it began to shake! it was idling, while sitting; then when i put it in drive it was okay (slight idle, but stopped). this problem does not happen all the time, it is very spontaneous. my plan was to get service on the a.c but i'm not sure that's the real problem #issue 2 please help!!!! *js
