this is another example of the oil sludge issue with the chrysler 2.7 l engine. i bought the car used with low miles, and had my tension arm go out a few months later due to sludge buildup. this second instance came up pretty quickly. the started knocking on hard acceleration, then 2 days later started missing badly going uphill on my way home form work. the engine dies on the downhill side of the most dangerous road in portland (germantown rd.). this is a very steep extremely curvy road and i came all too close to not being able to make the first turn with no power steering or brakes. making my way down the remainder of the hill was a bit frightening, to say the least. after getting towed and finding out the damage was blown bearings and replace the engine, it was suggested i look online for chrysler 2.7 l engine to find that this should have been considered a defect and the engine should have been replaced or repaired by chrysler, but chrysler claims the engine is fine, it's the owner's fault.

i was just driving my chrysler sebring 2000 this afternoon when the brakes failed completely. i was lucky to be in a parking lot when this happened and i don't want to imagine what would have happened on a highway! there was no warning at all, no light coming on, nothing, and the brake pedal just collapsed completely. i will have to take the car to the garage on tuesday. i wanted to know what i can do about that to be sure this does not happen again....it's scary to think that you can drive a car 65 miles an hour with suddenly no brakes at all!! i was just very lucky this time! *tr

traveling on the interstate two cars got into a fender bender another crashed into them and i was traveling behind the third vehicle when i applied the brakes and sent into a skid. my car slid a good distance until it crashed right into the back of the third vehicle which was a volvo in which their air bags deployed. my sebring did not stop nor did the air bags deploy. i was traveling around 30-40 mph when the impact happen. will not have confirmation until tomorrow but it appears that the car will not be salvageable. it is my understanding that anti-lock brakes should prevent a skid on a dry surface on a clear day. *tr

i've been having problems with the brakes of my 2000 sebring shortly after i purchased it from star chrysler in glendale ca. it only had 14,800 miles on it. i'm the second owner. i can't really hit my brakes and they wear out really fast. chrysler did nothing about this. these brakes are defective, unsafe and poorly designed. i constantly have to replace them. it's very frustrating. i have to put my car in low gear to go down hills and off ramps so the brakes don't wear out. also, my sending unit disabled at 84,000 miles. i now have to count the gallons of gas and track the mileage so i don't run out of gas. very dangerous. chrysler again did nothing. this is a computer related and should not have failed at 84,000 miles. my distributor failed last week at 107,000. this should not have failed. i called chrysler and they told me the only way they could give me assistance is if i towed it to the dealership. it was a total lie just to get me in there to spend $. they wanted $1500. chrysler notified me the next day to tell me i wasn't getting any assistance due to being out of warranty. this cost me 2 unnecessary tows from aaa. i had to tow it again to another mechanic which used up my last tow with aaa. i had to tow it also when my gas gauge disabled. chrysler is very unethical to it's consumers and failed miserably in the quality of their vehicles. *nm

driving north on i-75 i lost control over my 2002 chrysler sebring convertible - the car veered left crossed one lane and hit the median concrete divider. 2 failures were the brakes and the steering became unresponsive as i was unable to apply the brakes and unable to steer the car. there was no skid marks reported by the police report. the driver airbag ripped and did not successfully blow. the passenger airbag deployed properly. i suspect that the main cause cause of this accident was the lack of steering, which caused the car to veer left and hit the center concrete divider. the car is currently in storage in royal oak, michigan and is a total loss.*ak
