I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. Recently within the last year the car would stall at stop lights and then later this week wouldnt start. Towed to the shop once and the vehicle started for the shop and was unable to diagnose the problem. So I drove this car throughout the weekend and had no issues with it. Monday morning my wife goes to get in the car and it wouldnt start had to have the car towed back to the shop. This time problem never went away. My shop where I took the vehicle started looking into the problem and found out the fuel pump connector had melted causing the fuel pump to stop working. My concern is that melting wires and connectors right around a fuel source could cause a deadly fire all it needed was a spark for the car to ignite with a child in the back seat. I know many other people have had the same stalling issues and I feel this is something that possibly needs investigated before someone loses their lives for a faulty wiring issue with these cars.

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: 06/01/2003

Problems started even before the first payment was due. The transmission was replaced twice and still jolts when driving and slips out of gear. On the third occasion I was told by the service manager that it is normal for the Sebring's drive that way and it was not fixed. Over time the fuel pump has been replaced three times and still has the same problem. The roof has leaked. The doors shake. Automatic windows do not work properly. Both front seats do not lock into place. The key is difficult to remove on occasion. I have had two alignments done but the front end shakes when driving and has a rubbing/grinding noise. The car has 43,000 miles and I consider it unsafe and unreliable for long distances.
