Stay away from 2.7L V6 engine!
By Sandi on

Vehicle

2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I bought this car new and always liked the styling, the features, and the ride. I had very few problems with this care until it hit 60,000 miles. I started having problems with the engine and discovered: Oil Sludge! I learned through Internet research the 2.7 L V6 engine in this car was known for developing oil sludge, coolant leaks, catastrophic failure due to poor design. At 67,000 miles, I've replaced water pump, water inlet housing, and still have coolant leaking into the engine. I'm guessing it's the gaskets.

Favorite Features

Style, premium sound system, sun roof.

Suggested Improvements

Do not buy any Chrysler or Dodge vehicle with the 2.7L V6 engine!
