Could not use my horn and airbag did not deploy during an accident. The airbag and horn do not work because the fuse had to be taken out the fuse runs these functions. The fuse was taken out because the horn does not function properly which also means the airbag has a fifty, fifty chance of working with the fuse in. Because no investigation has been done on this function everyone on the road is at risk. Safety is an issue and this needs to have a recall. Stop making americans pay for lemons!!!.

First two complaints have been recalled and serviced. Said recalls were for # 1 engine stalling and # 2 driver airbag under seat sensor illuminating on and off on dash. Even after the service was performed for the recalls, I still have engine stalling during stops and on deceleration the vehicle threatens to stall. I need to keep giving gas and on humid days that is indicative of possible rain the threat is more often. The second recall complaint that I am still experiencing is the air bag illuminator on dash for the drivers side goes on and off and the wires under the drivers seat are involved when driver seat moves front or back. Stalling is a safety issue that can cause personal injury or death to occupants in this car or nearby cars sharing the road. Also the air bag sensor problem keeps me in fear that the airbag will not deploy when necessary or will deploy accidentally on its own while the vehicle is in motion. I also have a complaint that the car when braking for a stop continued to rev causing me to use the emergency break and I had to shut off the car to stop the car totally. I have noticed that this issue is common with other peoples complaint and an inquiry would seem imminent for safety reasons. The dealership knowing the recalls have not secured the proper handling of my vehicle's safety wants to charge a diagnostic fee or a service fee when it is clear that the proper service was not rendered causing recall malfunctions to this date. For the two complaints that have recalls that I am inquiring about need to be addressed to the dealership ASAP for service and I would appreciate the outcome of this complaint in writing. As for the accelerator problem I would like to be kept abreast if a safety issue is mandated for the repair of that complaint. Thank you.

On Sunday morning I was traveling north bound on I-35 passing the I-35 & I-40 junction traveling about 60 miles per hour, when on my drivers side I noticed a white Dodge neon coming over into my lane. I immediately honked horn and moved over slightly. Car continued to come over into my lane so I hit my brakes which slowed me down some to about 50 miles per hour, and then my cars front end started vibrating vigorously and car went into tailspin and hit head on into center highway concrete median and then tailend swung around and also hit median on passenger side of vehicle. My airbags did not deploy and I want to investigate if they had previously deployed and were not re-installed properly. Or if the vehicle manufacturer had a defect in the airbags themselves.
Car cold stalls, stalls when at traffic lights, engine shakes violently, brakes squeal an grind, when starting car floods itself and cannot be turned on for a few hours, had an accident at 44-50 mph and airbag did not deploy,gears stick and do not come out of gear at times:insurance was called at time of accident and said no reason could be identified as to why airbag did not deploy. Car has had new brakes every 3-4 months,brand new cooling system, tune-up, oil change every 2500-3000 miles, dealership updated software, cold start stalling problem could not be duplicated, check engine light keeps coming on and off and no problems found at auto shop. I contacted the dealership and they informed me that since the car was used they were not going to and could not do anything about it and refused to check anything out or even listen to my concerns. I have researched and there have been many complaints on this model of vehicle doing all of these things. Since the first initial time of problem problems have continued. Car is at 96,000 miles but has left me strandeded since and keep having to replace parts.
I own a 2007 Sebring. I have had the vehicle in a few times for a parking brake light that would come on and for the airbag light that would come on. The dealer was unable to find the source of the problem. While driving on the interstate, I hit a deer. Although the impact occurred while going 60 mph, the airbags did not deploy. Flames were coming out from under the hood and onto my windshield before I even got to the shoulder. I was forced to jump from the vehicle while it was still in motion, to escape the burning car.
Vehicle hit a deer head on and burst into flames. Air bags did not deploy. Auto has been in to dealership numerous times for engine light, which would not stay off. On my home from arizona to minnesota, the emergency brake light kept coming on when going down off ramps.
My daughter was driving our 2003 Sebring lxi and had just left our house on a sun. Morning heading back to college. We live in a rural area and only the center road bed is tar and the shoulder is gravel. She went slightly into shoulder and said something unusual happened as she could not steer and immediately remembers rolling a couple of times and awaking upside down in a steeper ditch in a corn field. She ended up rolling over a mail post that javelin through the front shield and just missed her head. She was taken by ambulance for head injury. We thought she over compensated. We just discovered that was not the case the mount above the strut was completely rusted and broke off which definitely is the cause of the accident. The air bags did not deploy. She was wearing a seat belt. Three different emergency workers said if she wasn't she would of died. This is scary as the car is only is only "five" years old. And a immediate recall or investigation.
