Driving south, from michigan, had driven approx. 600 miles of a 700+ mile trip, vehicle started "chugging" at 70mph on the highway, decelerating, unable accelerate, this was not in an area of differing elevations, it would almost stall then surge, then repeat. Cruise control was not being used at that time due to heavy traffic. Pulled the vehicle off the highway, into a store parking lot, shut it off for a few minutes, restarted and no further problems until today when driving for less than 15 minutes, on the highway at 60mpg, heavy traffic, it began again. Again, it was pulled over shut off and restarted with no further incidents today. You people need to do something to fix this. Someone is going to be fatally injured. I am not the only one experiencing this same issue.
Just like everyone else's complaint on the 2008 Sebring. The electronic throttle control light comes on. The cars rpms rev high but the car won't even be going fast. The car will speed up on its own and jump while sitting at a red light. Then once the light comes on and you cut the car off if you try to crank it back up it went cut on. This is ridiculous. I've almost wrecked quite a few times. Nobody knows whats wrong amd when you take it to the dealership they don't know either and they are all rude. And they charge you 100$ to diagnose it. If you don't know anything about vehicles you should def not work for Chrysler and should not charge people for the diagnostic.

Tl-the contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated while the brake pedal was depressed, the vehicle was accelerated independently without warning. The contact turned the vehicle's ignition off and once he restarted the ignition he was able to drive normally. The failure recurred multiple times. The vehicle's windshield wipers would also power on independently and the air bag warning light illuminated. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000. Mf.
My 2008 Sebring had the electronic throttle control light come on. When this happened the vehicle immediately reduced itself to 2000 rpms. I could not accelerate beyond that threshold. If the vehicle came to a stop it would stall out completely. I have read several similar reports of this issue including it causing involuntary acceleration.
I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring limited and when I take my key out of the ignition and open the drivers door it still indicates on the dash that the key is in the ignition, therefore causing my key fobs to not work as well. I cannot set my alarm on my car because the key fobs are not working and I have to sit in the car for 30-60 seconds waiting for the dash to stop indicating the key is still in the ignition so I can lock the car doors. It is a big hassle and inconvenience.
My 2004 Chrysler Sebring lt stalled out on me in the middle of in intersection in a left turn lane. Could not get car restarted immediately and was in heavy traffic. Once I had restarted the vehicle I moved over to the shoulder where it happened again, and this also happened in a parking lot. This is dangerous. If stall would have happened 2 seconds later I would've been t-boned by a pickup truck. Upon stall the car engaged the e-brake and also lit up the following warning lights : engaged ebrake, oil, battery, and engine.

Vehicle came to a complete stall while taking left- hand turn on intersection @ ~15mph. It now shows the indicator light for the engine randomly and stalls somewhat frequently at low speeds. Lastly, the trans is slipping rigorously.
I was driving at about 55 mph, etc light starts blinking erratically. I then lose power and go down to 10-20 mph. Later that weekend, I started my car and the same thing happened, without it driving.
I was going about 55 mph when the electronic throttle control light came on. It was flashing with made it impossible to reach speeds over 40 mph. I was a danger on the highway because I was unable to maintain speed as well as the vehicle hesitating. It took me 1hour and a half to travel 35 miles. The next day started it and the light went out, I have been afraid to drive it. No one seems to have an easy answer.
The electronic throttle control light came on. The car decelerated and was idling high/rough. It will not pick up speed beyond 25-30 mph.
The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that the headlights, interior lights and dashboard lights would sporadically flash. The dealer replaced the multifunction switch several times however, the failure was not corrected. The contact also stated that the vehicle intermittently stalled without warning. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 45,771.
My wife was driving her 2009 Chrysler Sebring at approximately 55 miles per hour when all the indicator lights in the instrument cluster all began to flash erratically. The car began to loose power and then stalled while she was trying to remain in control. She was eventually able to get the car to the side of the road in a area that has barely any shoulder to stop on with much effort since no power makes a car with power steering very difficult to drive. It took another 15 minutes to get it restarted all while many cars whizzed by at high speed, with greatly diminished power as the power train did not know if it was coming or going. It limped back to our house stalling again in our driveway. We called Chrysler and made appointment to have it taken to neuwirth Chrysler in wilmington nc for diagnosis and repair. Tom chappell, called us and relayed the following, the power train module was faulty and needed to be replaced. He also told us that this part was on Chrysler's national back order and we could not expect delivery until may 5, 2014. If you notice today's date is 21 November 2013. That is almost 6 months from now. This car is not safe to drive and should not be driven. I have since spoken to the general manager at neuwirth Chrysler and he agrees that the car should not be driven and that the dealership is trying to intercede with Chrysler corporation on our behalf to get a rental car and something in order to alleviate this situation. The general manager cautioned that all he our anyone at neuwirth could do was "yell and jump up and down" on our behalf, but the final authority would the Chrysler corporation in michigan. Chrysler corporation maintains it is safe to drive for the next 6 months. Please help this car should be recalled.

Since purchasing this vehicle last October, the instrument cluster lights has stopped working on a few occasions. At some point they would work again momentarily but only to stop again. Only a portion of the cluster would remain lit. The instrument cluster lights are currently not working on our vehicle.

Vehicle stall first time on August 20 2013. It would only get up to 10mph. Had to get it towed to shop. They cleaned the throttle work for about a month. On September 18 problem occured again the red light which looks like a lighting bolt cameon . Lost power pull over on interstate crank up again work fine until September 25 when it stall again had to get a tow truck again to take it to another shop. They told me that the first shop should not have replace throttle that only work temporarily. So they replace the whole throttle and reprogram this cost me a total of $733. This can be dangerous going down the interstate lucky didn't cost a accident. This should never happen especially 3 years old.
I can remeber all of the dates that these problems occured but, I did have automobile insurance and they did have a tote truck to take my car to a body shop. This been repaired some time three to four time a year. I keep going to get this repaired. I bought two cars same make and model and everything on both cars been repaired and its not because of an automobile inncdent its because of the barron been coming aparts. I have bought a new motor on both cars. I have had nothing but. Problems with this car the same problems with both cars. I am so afraid of these cars because I bought them new and I know I bought a new engine.
Engine is stalling once car is cranked. When pressing the brakes to put car in reverse or drive, the car cuts off. Once able to get into drive and try to drive, the car's brakes can not be touched or the car will stop instantly. The car also does stop and go driving like it's pulling on something heavy.
After stopping and parking car, it was a completely dead sound when I tried to start it again. This has happened twice so far in a month. I jacked up the car on drivers side, just let down the jack; and it started both times. The locks don't work and the windows can only be controlled by the driver. Checked all fuses but the bottom line is this car has electrical problems.

So far my 2008 Sebring has turned off while driving twice. I was slowing down from 30mph for a stop light and it turned off and was luckily able to utilize the brakes if not I would have rear ended the vehicle in front of me, but as for the steering, it was unresponsive. However, I turned my car back on as if nothing happen until the second time it stalled while turning into my street. Same issue occurred (no steering, but brakes were ok. )car stalls once again good thing my car turns back on immediately. Its was dangerous only for the fact that oncoming traffic would be unable to see me stalled there because road forms a hill over the canal, since soon after I went passed over the canal my street entrance is more or less 20ft from the canal, it could be a blind spot.
As I was driving on the highway I noticed a burning smell. I looked to my right and I saw smoke. I pulled over to the side of the road. I then turned off my vehicle. The smoke stopped. I had my dogs bed on the passenger seat. When I moved it, I saw the burn whole in the seat and the dog bed. It was 85 degrees. I did not have the heated seats on. If I did not have the top down the car would have filled with smoke causing major visibility problems. If it weren't for the dog bed that smothered the fire, there would have been flames. My dog and I might not be here to report this fire. After Chrysler inspected the vehicle they determined there was no defect. Chrysler will not tell me what caused it other than it was not a defect and therefore not their problem. The dealer I brought the vehicle to said there was a short in the relay. There is nothing I could have done to prevent this. This should not have happened. It is a very dangerous situation. It could happen to others.
When my husband drives my car, he moves the seat back. When I drive my car, I move the seat forward. This action causes the airbag light on the dash to come on. When I move the electronically controlled seat forward/backward, the airbag light will "sometimes" go off. The NHTSA ref 07v240000 references a recall for the front seat track position sensor. I contacted Chrysler to see if my car is one that has been recalled. I'm told that it is not. I think it should be.
The electronic throttle light is continuously coming on even after repairs. The car will ride find and then all of a sudden cut off with no waring other than the light appearing. Also it stalls and you can be in the middle of traffic which is definitely safety hazardous. Ive notice that this problem has occurred to thousand and to my surprise no recall.
I was driving in stop and go traffic and started speeding up due to less traffic. I was going 60 mph when my car stopped accelerating and started making this weird revving noise (the kind when you are parked or in neutral), my warning light came on for the electrical panel. I then pulled over because it was not going any faster than 35 mph. Just letting it sit it was making those same noises. I turned the car off and restarted it. The light when away and it was able to drive again. It had a little issue getting back up to speed but overall it went back to normal.
The car sometimes stalls. On several occassions, mostly during or after it rains, it will just cut off. It cuts off at stop lights and while I'm driving. There are no indications on the dashboard before it cuts off. It always starts back up after each incident.
On Monday 1/28/2013 after a heavy morning of snowing and raining, I began to run errands. All of sudden my car 2008 Chrysler Sebring stalled as I was driving. I started the car immediately back up with no problems however shortly afterwards pulling up to a traffic light the car stalled again. Everything in the car goes off as if someone has turned the ignition key to off position. This is very dangerous as there are no warning to the possibility the car is about to stall. Tuesday 1/29/13 I took my car to a local repair chain as it continued to stall and they reported not finding anything electrical wrong with the car nor mechanical. However, they suggested that when cars stall sometimes it may be the spark plugs may need to be replaced. So based on their suggestion I had the spark plugs replaced/tune up. Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem as I drove home car stalled. On Wednesday 1/20/13, I took the car to another trusted mechanic and they reported the problem being electrical and manufactured due to how the car totally shuts down and not registering with the dash board a problem. On 1/31/13 I had the car towed to the Chrysler dealership only for them to confirm, so far, what the other two mechanics already told me, its an electrical problem that is not showing up on dash. For three days the car stalled aprx. 11 times at traffic lights and/or in motion. I have read there was a recall on 2007-2008 Chrysler Sebring's however when I called Chrysler I was told that did not include my car due to it being manufactured a month later than the recall cars. However, the recall notice describes exactly what is happening to my car. I have also communicated with 2 other people to whom have complained about the same stalling issues with the same year and model car. I just hope it does not take someone losing their life before changes are made to solve this problem.
While idling at a stop light in ocean city, new jersey, engine surged then stalled. The car was then driven two blocks to a corner sunoco station and while idling at the gas station, the car again surged and died. Car was taken to atlantic Chrysler, but service could not duplicate the problem and the computer did not reflect it. Jan. 13, 2013, while driving in atlantic city, NJ, car engine revved and stalled while stopped at a stop light. The car surged forward slightly before breaks halted forward progress of car, nearly hitting the car in front of me. This happened twice before getting the car home. During the same trip the dash board light activated indicating the convertible top was in operation. The light did not deactivate until the convertible top had actually been activated, taken down and replaced. I have read a number of similar reports to this one. This is a dangerous situation and has to have a fix by now.
Electrical and engine problems defective engine caused car to cut off intermittently.

While driving the digital readout on the dash, information panel and radio lights for the mileage, gear selector, miles till empty and radio display will get very dim and then go back to bright. I took a video of this happening while driving and when dim they flutter. Have had 3 dealerships and 2 mechanics look at it and nobody can figure out what it is!.

The dash lights started blinking like a strobe light now they will just be off completely and randomly come back on. When they are off at night I cannot see my speed gas or temp.
