Sebring 4-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
I was driving down the road coming to a stop light when I noticed my car had just turned off without warning. Luckily there was a turn lane and the light was red so I didn't cause any accident. After that I took my car to see why the engine light came on and the mechanic said the code stated it had to do with the oxygen sensor. I replaced the part and the car ran ok until another time I was stopped at a light and the car turned off again. I've noticed the engine light comes on and then goes off after a couple of days. I was told I probably need to replace the intake manifold gasket which I bought but haven't replaced because someone told me about the recall of other Sebrings that had the same problem. The car was running fine and the engine light had gone off and then it happened again with no warning. I looked up and saw there have been other same complaints of the engine stalling as one is driving. The code given was H07. I am disabled and cannot afford to take a risk to drive down the road and this happen again. Please let me know where I should take my car to have the defective part replaced. I am also having problems with the driver side window coming off track and going through the rubber and I am afraid the window will shatter because it won't stop going up. I greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thank you

I can remember all of the dates that these problems occurred but, I did have automobile insurance and they did have a tote truck to take my car to a body shop. This been repaired some time three to four time a year. I keep going to get this repaired. I bought two cars same make and model and everything on both cars been repaired and its not because of an automobile incident its because of the barron been coming aparts. I have bought a new motor on both cars. I have had nothing but. Problems with this car the same problems with both cars. I am so afraid of these cars because I bought them new and I know I bought a new engine.
