I have a 2005 Chrysler Sebring I have owned for 2 years now in 2008 I was driving and heard a loud pop and a thud I got out and noticed that the rear strut mount shattered and the strut was loose so I drove it home and called the dealer they said there is a back order on them due to the constant failure of these so I was able to get 2 from their partner dealership someone instead of fixing their car they traded it in er something to that is what I was told so I put them on, now its 2009 Dec 23rd I changed the rear struts and front due to the car having 171,000 miles on them I took the good mounts off that I had just purchased a little over a year ago and they are showing signs of wear also but I threw them on since they was better then the ones I just bought with the new struts from a junk yard I would like you guys to look into this matter its a common problem with these cars dating back to 1999 or 2000 its all over the internet when they first shattered I contacted Chrysler about this matter and got hung up on several occasions when I told them the issue is all over the net about the same problem I do have old parts that was replaced in 2008 and the ones off of the used struts that I just purchased I have alot of friends that have a Sebring or have had one and they complain about the same issues if it wasn't a issue why was the strut mounts in 2008-2009 always on back order and dealerships could only get a limited # of them per month due to the problem.
Since purchasing vehicle in 2006 the horn has been going off by itself. . Whether driving or sitting stationary. I have had to bang on the horn pad area to get it to stop. After years of having to do this to stop the blaring horn, it now has a short. . Runs down my battery but will not blow at all. I have had to pull the fuse to save my battery, however, because it will not blow, I cannot get an inspection sticker. Therefore, I have had to drive with an expired sticker since August 2016 as I cannot afford the hundreds it would cost to fix the horn on this vehicle. This is not my 1st complaint about the horn issues on this vehicle. I have also discovered that there have been numerous complaints about this horn issue on this vehicle. . However, nothing has ever been done to resolve it. Recently, a lady backed into my car in walmart parking lot, damaging the bumper and breaking the light because I had no horn to blow and warn her. This is just one serious issue with this car. . This thing had been a lemon since day one. . From the front steering shaking horribly while braking to both rear struts breaking to rain water getting inside the doors and flooding the interior and shorting out the electric windows.
