Location:
Kansas City, KS

i have a 1999 chrysler sebring which has had the ball joint come out of both sides of the vehicle of the front 2 wheels about 6 months apart. this has caused damage to my vehicle which i have repaired. i am very concerned about my safety and the safety of my family because this last time i was about a mile away from getting on the highway, which could have been deadly. i feel that this is a safety issue and wonder about recalls and if i should be reimbursed. the tow to my home was $106, the tow to the mechanic was $65 and the mechanic bill was $303. this is just the drivers side. this happened on the passenger side as well and i feel i should be reimbursed for both. documents of these charges can definitely be provided if needed. i am concerned about this happening again, not just my own car but anyone else that may be driving one of these vehicles. please let me know either way. thank you. *tr

major headache has been the recent engine damage as a result of what may be oil sludge gathered in the motor. engine seized briefly upon switching from 1st to 2nd gear, then began "clicking" upon acceleration or deceleration to/from high rpms (upshifting and downshifting). chrysler dealership claims the problem is broken connector rod and bearing in #2 cylinder, which necessitates a new engine. estimated price tag: $10,000 (more than vehicle's worth). other problems with this vehicle have included faulty passenger airbag part that required replacement; persistent dimming/flickering of instrument panel lights; multiple battery and headlight burnouts; emission leaks on two separate occasions requiring two separate repairs; and cd player skipping, requiring (according to chrysler) a completely new stereo system. speakers are somewhat shot and the driver-side sunvisor clip broke under slight pressure. *tr

driver side seat belt failure on our 1999 chrysler sebring convertible jxi. the seat belt locking mechanism fails to lock over time. the plastic locking clip inside the locking clip will break (did break) with continuous use. the dealer wants $100.00 + for the part. if chrysler used a stainless steel locking we would have this problem. also the transmission sensors have a limited life. after driving for 30 minutes or more during low deceleration and low acceleration the transmission bucks and or slips. right now i have swap the passenger side seat belt locking mechanism to the driver side and we sit in the back if we're a passenger because $100.00 right now is not affordable. also when it rains water fills in the rear quarters, right up to the speakers, i have to park on a hill to drain it! *nm

problems started even before the first payment was due. the transmission was replaced twice and still jolts when driving and slips out of gear. on the third occasion i was told by the service manager that it is normal for the sebring's drive that way and it was not fixed. over time the fuel pump has been replaced three times and still has the same problem. the roof has leaked. the doors shake. automatic windows do not work properly. both front seats do not lock into place. the key is difficult to remove on occasion. i have had two alignments done but the front end shakes when driving and has a rubbing/grinding noise. the car has 43,000 miles and i consider it unsafe and unreliable for long distances. *jb

the converible roof is unravelling at the seams, making it unsightly and dangerous. i had water in my foor in the back seats and an upholstery shop discover a defect in the manufacture of the body causing the leak. it has been successfully fixed. but the soft top roof to be replaced would cost $1250-. it is my observation that there are a lot of convertibles during the model years of 1997 (mine) and other years (1998- ?). i called chrysler and they noted my complaint but haven't addressed the problem to my knowledge. i think this should be a recall as i see it on many converibles. what if one of these tops were to tear loose? that's my concern!!
