I got ready to leave work and my car would not start. It kept turning but would not start. I had it towed from virginia to maryland to the dealership. After a diagnostic test it was discovered that the fuel pump pin melted out of the module. When I asked the dealer what causes the pin to melt, I was told that it was a wiring problem and that it could have possibly caused the car to catch on fire. I had to have it repaired and it was expenses. As I completed a search, I discovered that there were several other complaints regarding this same problem.

Failure Date: 04/19/2006

I purchased this car new as a christmas gift for my wife in 2004. She had informed me a couple of times prior to the reported date that she'd experienced the car failing to start when she turned the switch. She stated when she turned the ignition to start the car nothing would happen-- the car would just be silent. After returning the key to the start position again and attempting to start it-- the car would start. It has also happened to me on a few occasions. The problem was never located. We just continue to use it as is. Over the years we have experienced other electrical related issues-- none having bee resolved. First the car lighters stopped working. I had them replaced several times but they continued to short out. The fuse (under the dash for the lighters) just blows out (literally tosses out) any fuse you put in it. So it too is no longer in use. We have a problem with a tail light that keeps blowing out. We keep replacing it because it only last about three months at a time. Meanwhile the other tail light has never had to be replaced-- it works just fine! the sun has now now warped the dash board and it has began to buckle. It's a 2004 not a 1954! I've never seen a car with these numerous problems. We have a 1996 Honda civic it looks good, runs great, and is all original, and we've cared for it just as we do this Sebring. What's the deal with this piece of junk??? that's why most people no longer buy american cars anymore. . . They are poorly made. We'd like to get a new car; but are nearing our retirement years and do not need the debt.

After it rained, water collected in a puddle on the back interior floorboard. The dealer previously suspected the water came from the door seals and replaced them, however the leak resurfaced and it did not come from door seals. Consumer believed the leak came from the chassis. Other problems are as followed: cd player malfunctioned, a/c unit failed and was repaired two times, the door panel was replaced, the steering column was replaced/squealed when turned/repair kit was installed/clockspring was replaced, the vehicle wouldn't start, there were electrical problems, a loud sound had come from the brakes, the window buttons were loose at the switch, and the engine cranked but did not start and was found to be flooded. Scc.

Cruise control from purchase didn't work, salesman told me I needed to be traveling 55 mph for it work. Turned out, it was broken, cost me $100 to repair. One month after purchase, car dead, turned out it needed a batery. Dealership paid the cost. 2nd month after purchase, check enging light came on, car running sluggish and popping noise, turned out I needed a spark plug. I requested they change them all. They wouldn't. 3 months after purchase check enging light on again, car running very sluggish, popping noise again, filled up with gas, car wouldn't start, had to have it towed it. This is rediculous. I want to file a lemon. Law. I can't afford a $400/mo paymnet and pay for my car to be repaired on a monthly basis. What can I do?.
