Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,570 miles
Vehicle was purchased used with 18,455 miles on it. After vehicle was purchased we noticed a grinding noise with the brakes. We took the vehicle into the dealership and had the rotors replaced because they were warped. The vehicle continued to have the grinding sound, we brought the vehicle back to the dealership and again work was done on the brakes. We did not have opportunity to drive it much after as our daughter got into a car accident with this vehicle on Oct 13, 2005, she was pulling out of the elementary school parking lot (no more than 5-10 mph) to go across the road to enter the high school and another vehicle hit her front corner passenger side (other vehicle was going approx 40-45 mph). The real issue is that both front airbags did not deploy until several minutes after the accident occurred...that is what caused the majority of the injuries to my children.

2004 Chrysler Sebring has a recurring air bag problem. The air bag light warning light would come on and go off numerous times while driving. A seat belt pre-tensioner was required, but that did not resolve the air bag light problem. The A/C would only blow on the highest setting. The left front window made a creaking noise when going up or down. The thermostat and gasket were replaced due to a coolant leak. The driver side mirror was loose.

I have several acquaintances that are emits, and on several occasions they have spoken to me about responding to accidents in which during the deployment of the drivers and passengers airbag systems passengers and drivers have been severely injured. For example, the cover on the steering wheel, when activated, and depending on the positions of the drivers hands on the wheel, digits have been severed. While passengers are riding, they often place their feet on the dash, then when the airbag is deployed if they do not react and move their feet, their knees are driven into their face or chest causing severe injury. I would like to know why these incidents have not been addressed in any report that I have read nor has the general public been notified as to the hazards of leg or hand position while riding or driving. Is this not information that the public should be made aware of" yes, airbags save lives, but lives were saved by only seat belts prior to airbags. Living is always better than dying, however loosing digits or suffering facial or rib cage damage, when unnecessary is uncalled for--don't you agree. These incidents have occurred over the last several years in various makes and models of vehicles, so please do not pay any attention to the incident date, year of vehicle, type of vehicle, etc., required by this form. Please let me know if there is a report or information available to the general public on this matter that I am not aware of, and its location. If not, could action be taken to notify the general public"
