I have owned my Sebring for 5 years and two years ago the clear coat started to dissipate. I have noticed every black Sebring has the same problem.

  • 55,000 miles
2000 Chrysler Sebring headliner caught on fire melting fabric. *** no answer required*** *** transferred to ovsc*** when the consumer went to strike a match, it broke when the consumer motioned upward. The head of the match was fizzling and flew upward, it struck the headlined and fell down on the consumers pants. The consumer brushed the head of the match and was able to smothered it with his shoe, he opened the door, bent over and threw it out the window. The consumer looked back and realized the headliner was burning and that the fabric was melting. The consumer was able to put the fire out but in the process he burned 2 of his fingers. The consumer believes there is a defect in the material and that materials in vehicle should be more flame resistant and not support combustion. The moment the match head hit the material it reversed and was immediately being pulled away by gravity. The consumer stated material should not be able to ignite and blaze up from such an incidental contact.
