Chrysler Sebring 2000, vehicle just won't start. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times for this issue. Electrical wire were replaced along with a new computer and tune up but the problem recurred. The brake rotors failed, the alarm operated erratically, the doors won't unlock, the horn doesn't work and the radiator was blocked.

I have had several problems with the Sebring I purchased on 09/27/2000. First the blower for the heater and air conditioning went out. The resistor was replaced in my car a total of 4 times at pat berrang Chrysler in waynesboro va. The fifth time I took the car to pep boys and they found a short in my blower motor which was causing my resistor to short out. Chrysler supplies the blower motor after many futile attempts at trying to get them to find out what the problem was. I had asked them when the resistor went out the second time if it could be a possible short somewhere that was causing this and was told that was not possible. After many threats I finally got them to replace the blower motor and I had to pay for the labor. They said since the car was no longer under the original manufactures warranty that it was basically not their problem. The second problem I had with the car was that there was a shake when you stepped on the brakes and I had to have my rotors turned. The third problem I had was when the fuel pump went out and I had to fight with the dealership for a replacement car since they had mine for two weeks. The problem I am having now is that the transmission is completely out on my car. It was just towed this morning to a transmission shop in charlottesville. I contacted daimler Chrysler about the car being only three years old and the transmission blowing in it. I was told that it is not under warranty and it has 95,000 miles. So you"re saying that Chrysler vehicles do not last past 95,000 miles. The man named johnathan argued with me on the phone about how Chrysler makes dependable vehicles. I told him that my mother"S 1991 Ford tempo has 170,000 miles on it and the transmission has never went out on that. He said all he could do was note my complaint and he hung up. I want this to be documented in case there are others out there are having the same problems with their transmissions that I am having.

My A/C compressor shattered where one of the pressure lines hooks up to the housing. The compressor was defective, which you will see upon inspection. It just came apart for now reason. This isn't the first time I have heard of this. The gentlemen said that it was not uncommon. He advised me to take it back where I bought it. You have all my records. There should be a recall. The Chrysler headquarters said that you would take care of it. ( its a safety hazard ).
