I was just driving my Chrysler sebring 2000 this afternoon when the brakes failed completely. I was lucky to be in a parking lot when this happened and I don't want to imagine what would have happened on a highway! there was no warning at all, no light coming on, nothing, and the brake pedal just collapsed completely. I will have to take the car to the garage on Tuesday. I wanted to know what I can do about that to be sure this does not happen again....it's scary to think that you can drive a car 65 miles an hour with suddenly no brakes at all!! I was just very lucky this time!

I've been having problems with the brakes of my 2000 sebring shortly after I purchased it from star Chrysler in glendale ca. It only had 14,800 miles on it. I'm the second owner. I can't really hit my brakes and they wear out really fast. Chrysler did nothing about this. These brakes are defective, unsafe and poorly designed. I constantly have to replace them. It's very frustrating. I have to put my car in low gear to go down hills and off ramps so the brakes don't wear out. Also, my sending unit disabled at 84,000 miles. I now have to count the gallons of gas and track the mileage so I don't run out of gas. Very dangerous. Chrysler again did nothing. This is a computer related and should not have failed at 84,000 miles. My distributor failed last week at 107,000. This should not have failed. I called Chrysler and they told me the only way they could give me assistance is if I towed it to the dealership. It was a total lie just to get me in there to spend $. they wanted $1500. Chrysler notified me the next day to tell me I wasn't getting any assistance due to being out of warranty. This cost me 2 unnecessary tows from aaa. I had to tow it again to another mechanic which used up my last tow with aaa. I had to tow it also when my gas gauge disabled. Chrysler is very unethical to it's consumers and failed miserably in the quality of their vehicles.

The contact owns a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The vehicle was purchased on 5-27-05. The dash lights did not work at night. One week later the battery went dead. The battery that was in the vehicle was the original battery from the factory. Then, the brakes failed. In addition, while driving the serpentine belt broke, and the engine will have to be replaced. She contacted the dealership, and they told her that they will get her an extended warranty for the vehicle even though she purchased it without an extended warranty.. they will not tell her what was wrong with the vehicle which was at the dealership. They did tell her that the engine was out. The consumer felt that the dealership did not do any safety checks. Chrysler told her that it appeared that the car was never looked at the dealership. The dealership told her that if she did not want to keep the vehicle that they would replace the engine with one that was real cheap and resell the old one to someone else. They purchased an extended warranty in her name, and dealership indicated they needed to collaborate that she needed an extended warranty.

Brake failure, brakes felt soft and made a whistling noise. The vehicle brake pads were replaced due to wear and the rotors were turned. The horns fuse blew when the cigarette light was used.
