Chrysler Sebring 1999

Safety incident date:
Feb 25, 2005
Location:
Chicago, IL

the door cladding on my 1999 chrysler sebring lxi has been defective since i first purchased the car new in december 1998. the dealership attempted to fix the problem at least 3 times and the problem persists with my door panels hanging off which is a big safety concern. why wasn't this problem recalled as soon as it was discovered by daimler chrysler? there have been numerous complaints filed with nhts about this problem. i recently spend money having the wheel hub replaced and was never notified about the ball joints recall which was probably related to the hub problem according to my mechanic. the latch to secure the hood is defective -- this is very dangerous for me. *nm

Location:
Spring Hill, TN

less than 19,000 miles on the 2004 chrysler pt cruiser and the wheel bearings on front went bad. the driver's side was so bad i did not drive it further than a block from work , the closest place. they charged me $313.00 to fix the driver's side. the next day, i found outt he car was still under warranty ,bought it second hand. i took it to the dealership, and they confirmed the passenger's side was also going bad and replaced it and the damaged hub. chrysler will not reimburse me the $313.00 because it was not fixed at a dealership. the driver's side hub was not replaced, and they will not cover this under warranty either. this should be under warranty as well. a car with less than 19,000 miles should not have bad wheel bearings already. the driver's side was so bad that the wheel could have seized or fallen off and caused a serious injury or death to myself and/or others on the interstate. all four tires have some kind of defect, and the front tires have worn unevenly due to the damaged wheel bearings. chrysler will not replace front tires under warranty. *ak

while driving my 2004 chrysler pt cruiser, i started hearing a grinding noise coming from the front end of the car. in just a matter of days i could tell it was getting louder. i thought it might be the brakes but i just had the front brakes replaced 6,000 miles earlier. i took it to the mechanic where i had the brakes done and after checking the car he told me the problem was the left front wheel bearings. it cost me $556.23 to replace the front left hub and the bearings on both front wheels. after the repair, he showed me the old hub and bearings. the part was broken and several of the bearings were missing. he said if i had continued to drive the car in that condition, it was very likely the front left wheel would fall off, possibly causing serious injury or death. this is a serious safety issue and i believe chrysler needs to issue a recall for this problem. there is only 28,560 miles on this vehicle. there is no way a car with this many miles should be having this kind of problem. *tr
