Just turning off the main busy road from driving 40-45mph and onto a small residential narrow street doing 25mph I suddenly heard very loud clunking noises si I immediately stopped the car and got out and noticed that my rear drivers side tire was slanting inward. It turned out to be that my rear upper ball joint had busted . Was told by the tow truck driver that if it would of happened a few seconds earlier while driving 40 mph on the main road, that I would of had a serious crash. Due to my tire buckling in from the ball joint breaking in half. The entire suspension on the car needs repaired. Front and back. All bushings, ball joints are totally worn down to almost nothing. Shocks/struts all no good.

Noticed around this date when making left hand turns going down hill in the parking garage that the suspension was making a groaning sound. Took vehicle to several mechanics that found nothing wrong under inspection. Finally took to new mechanic and found rack and pinion with front left side.

Failure Date: 07/07/2009

The car is a 2002 Chrysler Sebring coupe and while driving it at approximately 25 mph the front right wheel broke away from the suspension arm causing loss of control. Prior to this incident I could hear a squeaking in the direction of the failed part when driving on relatively smooth surfaces as well as over bumps. This lasted only a week before the part failed completely. There was not one significant incident that started the squeaking and rubbing sounds. Ultimately, the car had to be towed and the suspension arm replaced. If I were driving any faster than 25 mph with traffic around me, severe consequences would have arisen.

The dash, radio, & cd player lights flash off and on intermittently. This occurs on random occasions. It also happens when operating the turn signal. The lights will dim low and will not return to a "normal" brightness until you adjust the turn signal arm. Or the lights completely go off. Turn off the car and the displays will start up. The suspension problem is the noise of metal and banging in the suspension. The air bags, horn do not work as well as cruise control. The a/c fails to work most of the time.

: the contact stated while driving 25 mph on a street, the vehicle struck a small pothole, and a banging noise was heard coming from the right rear of the vehicle. An independent repair shop inspected the vehicle, and determined the rear suspension mounting bracket was corroded and needed to be replaced. Additionally, the mechanic determined the corrosion was due to excessive road salts. The manufacturer was notified.

Failure Date: 07/02/2001

I had the vehicle in 2 weeks prior to 7/9/01 for regular service and a recall on the boots, the right being worse than the left side. I also complained about the rear end swaying when I drive over a rough road. There was no even flow. It turned out the inner tie rod ends had to be replaced. Within 2 days of receiving the vehicle back there was still a sway in the rear end but not as bad. I parked the car for 6 days because I used my father's new vehicle. When I used the car again especially on 7/9/01 I made a right hand turn into a parking lot and heard a loud metal thumping sound. I heard the sound again when I applied the brakes to stop. I brought the vehicle back to my residence and noticed the strut not only came undone but also broke the body frame under the front right wheel well. Vehicle was flat bedded back to dealership where they thought work could be done. Unfortunately, it had to go to an auto body shop. I am waiting to hear from body shop to see how this job will be done as well as what expense it will be to me. I saw on NHTSA's web site under complaints that there were 5 other complaints about the noise as well as the strut actually breaking off. I called to complain to crash, a data base site for vehicle problems who advised me they had just taken the same report on the same side on a Dodge neon. I do not understand how this strut broke. When I asked the dealership how this happened, they advised me normal wear & tear. Now I am in the insurance business for 12 years and have owned 2 other vehicles in my life, this is not a "normal" wear and tear. You have to have a serious car accident with extensive front end damage for the possibility of this to happen. I have also noticed that all the recalls that Chrysler has had on the Sebrings in particular, are mainly the front suspension. Maybe there was a problem whith manufacturing. I am extremely disappointed. I could have been seriously injured.
