Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,980 miles
I was driving my car and it started making a real loud squeaking noise like the front end was coming out from under it. I took it in and got a couple of quotes on it. All 3 of the mechanic's told me I needed to get my lower ball joints & control arm changed. Both the passenger and the driver side of my car were bad. I had never gotten a recall notice in the mail. I have owned this car for over 2 years. Finally I took it in on Monday, July 3, 2006 and had to replace both sides. It ended up costing me over $475 for parts and service.
