when attempting to turn the car, there is a clunking noise and then the steering wheel comes lose. it does not physically detach from the steering column, but it rocks freely back and forth. attempting to turn the steering wheel after this causes a grinding sound and is unstable due to the rocking motion. the failure occurred on march 6, and a chrysler dealer serviced the car on march 7 using tsb 19-008-01 as a service procedure. the exact same failure occurred the next day, after servicing. a different chrysler dealer serviced it using tsb 19-008-01 which involves inserting a shim. two different dealerships recommended replacing the steering column and chrysler would not authorize it.*jb

Location:
Mira Loma, CA

1997 chrysler sebring lxi as i was driving down the freeway at approximately 75 - 80 mph, i felt this really hard jerk in my car where i had to rapidly grab the steering wheel with both my hands to control the car. the jerk slightly made my car steer to the right and the person on the right of me had to move out of the way. luckily nothing happened, but what if something would of. chrysler needs to really pay attention to these things and make sure that everything is safe, especially when it comes to a person's safety. i consider this bad business practice because chrysler does nothing to fix this problem to the already existing chrysler car buyers. good business practice is keeping the client happy, and this goal is not being met by this company. i'm 20 years of age and now i'm stuck with a car that doesn't work, i still owe on, and is my only way of transportation. *la

i have read about sludge build up in the engine of the chrysler sebring 2.7 engines. i am experiancing a knocking noise in the engine or suspension that is intermettent. i experiance this problem when my engine is hot and also when the weather is hot (as i live in florida). i do not notice this when the weather is cooler and the engine is cool. could this be the starting of engine build up too. suncoast chrysler cannot seem to find anything wrong. would a diagnosis test on the engine reveal signs of build up? how can i have this checked out and fixed? i have also experianced a clicking noise in my sterring column which suncoast claims to have a tsb on this problem and needs to replace a some parts. your input is greatly appreciated.

Safety incident date:

Location:
Cleveland, OH

purchased 2004 chrysler sebring from ed tomko dealership in avon lake, oh on sept 23rd. after 270 miles (9-29-03) the steering column started to shake while idling at stop lights (visibly shaking and makes it difficult to keep my hands on the steering wheel, as my entire upper body feels the affects). i took the car into the ed tomko dealership on oct 6th and was told this was normal for a 4 cylinder (i have owned 4 cylinder chrysler vehicles for 14 years and never encountered this defect). i called the dealership the next morning and spoke to the gm who passed me off to the service manager (later i was told this was no longer the sales dept's concern-it was now a service issue). the service mgr, dave tomko, told me he was involved with the car the previous day and saw no problem. i brought the car back on oct 9th for dave tomko to visually confirm the defect via a road test. he told me this was normal and i had no other recourse than to seek arbitration. i have contacted chrysler's customer assistance center (reference # 11733597) and have been brushed off. they sided with dave tomko and several e-mails later, told me if i didn't think this was normal to go to another dealership. i have since taken the car to another dealership (oct 20th). they agreed it was not normal and upped the curb idle speed (as the shaking became more prominent when the idle speed dropped). the problem has re-surfaced and the car was returned to the dealership on nov 6th. they have faxed the sensor readings to chrysler. i have not heard anything as of today, nov 8th, and the car remains defective. i am concerned about not being able to maintain control of my vehicle while idling at intersections, since it is uncomfortable to keep my hands on the steering wheel while idling.*ak
