Failure Date: 01/28/2010

2001 Chrysler Sebring. The problem began with the car being difficult to start. Eventually the car's engine shut off while traveling at 55 m. P. H. The ignition key transponder was deemed the culprit. Several months after repair, the starting problem reappeared. A dealer worked on the car, doing what I do not know, and the problem was solved, for awhile. The next manifestation came with the radio flashing off, headlights remaining on and then extinguishing themselves and dash warning lights blinking. I gave up on repair. These problems have been ongoing for two years. Type "sebring electrical problem" for a computer search revealing numerous similar complaints.

Failure Date: 07/20/2008

As of Sunday (7/20/08), I was driving and my engine cut off (no warning), power steering & breaks locked up. . . . I lost control of my car. After my car came to a stop I attempted to re-start and it failed. I then placed the car in park, took the key out of the ignition, put it back in and the car cranked up. I drove it to the dealership Monday (7/21/08) morning and got it back later the same day with zero help. They said nothing came up when they hooked it up to the computers. So if it happens again to let them know. That Chrysler had no recalls or reported issues for this problem. I went on-line yesterday and learned a recall has been issued visiting other websitesincluding yours (recall number: 08v152000) and its not posted on Chryslers website. I called Chrysler to notify them that I have 2008 Sebring and need to be included on this recall and that I hadn't received a notice. They said there was no recall and im out of luck. I then called the tallahassee, FL dealership back and told them all the information I found online and that I don't feel safe driving the vehicle and I don't want to end up as a statistic on the side of the rode. The dealership then said for me to bring the car back so they can look at it again. I'm currently driving a rental.

I have a chry Sebring 2003 concerning issue- able to turn off the car and pull the key out of ignition while car is still in gear. This happened on several occasions and the car rolled while I was getting out. Lucky there was no injury involved but this is very dangerous and could led to serious injury. There should be a safety feature that does not allow the key to come out while the car is still in gear.

Failure Date: 05/29/2006

My vehicle in may 2006 starting showing signs of ignition failure. My check engine light remains on while I am driving the vehicle. When I attempt to turn off vehicle off,it remains on for at least 15 minutes or longer until I can get it to turn off w/o the key in the ignition. This means my car is drivable w/o a key in the ignition. This car started having problems at 29,000 miles. The hood of the vehicle gets extremely hot. According to the recall reports which states that a break in molding in the fuel pump can lead to ignition failure which is a safety hazard and can cause a fire. My car has been in the shop 3x in less than 5 months. Ancira Jeep Chrysler has failed to fix this problem and has continued to charge me for a fuel pump, cam sensor, and ignition. I picked up my car from the dealership just a few days ago and not even 10 min later when I got home the problem was still occuring but worse. My car is in the shop as we speak and I have yet to hear feedback unless I call; even then, they can't give me an answer. The service advisor called me to ask me how to turn my car off, there is a huge problem when a certified dealership w/mechanics is asking their customer how to fix their car. I should not have to pay at all, this is a defective product and the service and quality I have recieved is unacceptable. I was not provide transportation for there errors and I am relying on others for transportation.
