My 2003 Chrysler Sebring v6 3.0L shuts off at a standstill/stop lights. At first, I thought that it was just the gas that wasn't going because all the lights and radio would stay on when it would shut off. It starts back up immediately after I take out the key and restart it. My mechanic thought he had solved my problem by tightening one of the cables to the battery but ... Read More

Yep - Mine's been fine since I had the starter replaced with an OEM Mopar unit. Sure glad the mystery was solved. Went from a 2003 Saab 9-3 Convertible wirh 36,000 miles on it to my 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Convertible with over 95,000 miles on it and I couldn't be happier. I love this Sebring - Just an all around nice vehicle (and no cowl shake like in the Saab) ... Read More

I have a 2003 Chrysler Sebring with 45K miles on it. The transmission was replaced at 44K miles but it is still sluggish like this transmission is about to go out with less than 2500 miles on it. I have brought in this car 4 times for over 4 weeks with the same problem and each time I have to rent a car until they fix it. I havent had my ... Read More
Hi, I have the same problem. 2003 Sebring LXi conv, that had the airbag lite on when I bought it, from dealer at 16K mi. Dealer fixed it, by replacing tensioner(s). Then over the next 10K mi the problem recurred at least 2 more times, both times within the 36K complete warranty, both times fixed until the next occurence. Fine for about a year and a half. Car now has 42K ... Read More
I also have a 2003 LXI Convertible and have been dealing with the air bag light issue for several years. The first time occured under warranty. The dealer replaced the seat beat tensioner in the right seat. This fixed the problem for about 9 months. Since then, the car has been in the shop at the dealer at least once and sometime twice a year. The service advisor at Carl Burger ... Read More
I have a 2003 Sebring Coupe, 3.0 engine, less than 39,870 miles. A week or so ago I had an oil change done by the dealer. This week I noticed an oil leak under the right front part of the hood. Before I take it to the dealer and have them look at it, any idea what this leak is from?
Problem already so I brought a 2003 chrysler sebring less than a month ago as a young parent I thought it would be safer then my old 2000 chevy cavalier however the first two weeks I have it it spent in the shop between the hyndi shop and chrysler (I bought it from grappone)finally after two weeks chrysler said they had figured out why the dash lights come on and off ...

My 2003 Sebring Limited Conv had the same problem with its 16" chrome factory wheels. Was having new tires mounted at all corners and the shop owner called me out back to show me the flaking chrome plating on the wheels where the tire bead makes contact. He said he sees this often on Chrysler chrome wheels. His solution is always to apply black goop on the tire beads before mounting ... Read More
I've had the same intermittent problem with my 2003 Sebring Limited convertible. Early 2005, dealer replaced the multi-function switch on the steering column. This fixed the problem. However, just last night the instrument cluster went dark again. This morning it was lit up fine. Looks like it's time to see the dealer again for another muti-function switch replacement. Looks like Daimler Chrysler switch is designed for short life.
I have a 2003 Sebring convertible that consistently leaks air from the tires. It has been caused by the wheels exhibiting corrosion around the rim. I have been told by two Chrysler parts managers, as well as two different tire shops who fixed the problem, that the problem is a common one. I have been told by the Chrysler Corporation that they will not participate in any replacement of the wheel ... Read More
2003 lx Sebring has the most beautiful rear end of all cars,include gals, like Monroe, Grable and include the robust enormity of Nicole. If Chrysler in 2007 disengages on Sebring's lucious rear end......I will not buy another Chrylers Sebring model. Cars like the 2003 Sebring LX does have a unique sexual DNA. For men..... the rear end is the most important and impressive aspect of artistic form.
The dealership service dept. assures me the brakes are fine and feels that the issue is suspension/steering related that only occurs when braking and turning. I now have 37,500 miles. Sound is no worse, and no better after many attempts on their part to repair. I have additional postings you can review.
Did you evet get a fix or answer to the problem. Have you replace the brake pads recently or when you last replaced them did you get the ones that have a procelan (hope I spelled that correctly) material? I replaced my wifes brakes and just a couple of months later they began to screech every time we applied the brakes. I tried using brake parts cleaner, reseating the brake pads ... Read More
The dealer replaced the struts on both rt & lt front. New stabilizer links, control arms, extra lube..Didn't make a difference. 35000 miles...getting concerned because the 3 yr/36000 is close. Got a price from the dealer on extended warranty. They only recommend a Chrysler warranty because so many others have gone belly-up and they have been "stuck" (now they know how I feel). I could use the money they want for ... Read More
My 05 Sebring started doing that about a month ago at 13K miles. The dealer discovered that my front shock towers are loose and need re-riveted. He got the new rivets in, but, so far, can't get the special tool needed from Chrysler to install them. Will post again if the dealer actually manages to fix the thing. Regards: Oldengineer
Wondering if any of you that responded to #80 still have your Sebrings....and do they still make the same crunching, grinding noises in the front end when braking and turning? What was the remedy? Any other problems caused by the definitely present but nonrepairable problem (even though my dealer keeps telling me it's normal for the car). Tried the steering fluid replacement suggestion; did not work. Mine now has 33,700 miles ... Read More
Sounds like a Blower Resistor as your fan still works on high. I just replaced mine last week in a 2003 Sebring - took about 45 minutes. Exact same thing on my Windstar last year. The Blower Resistor retailed for $45.95 Canadian from Chrysler, and required some X-acto knife trimming of the plastic plenum to fit the new part as it is slightly larger than the original. I hope the new ... Read More
I have a 98 conv. with the same brake noise as everybody seems to complain of. The noise comes from the rear brakes not the front. The problem comes from glazing over of the brake shoes. Have your rear brakes cleaned and sanded and the noise will go away. If it comes back, do the same or have the shoes replaced with good after market parts. The othe thing to consider ... Read More
I have almost 26K on my car now. Brake noise that started around 4000 miles and, according to 2 dealerships cannot be fixed is still there and maybe worse. Front end seems to hit and ride bumps very hard but am told that nothing is wrong. Like you, I will have the vehicle checked out when the 3 yrs are up - and seriously consider getting out of the car and ... Read More
We also have brake noise on our 2002 Sebring with approximately 30,000 kms, just like you describe. The dealer has machined the rotors twice now and the problem is still there. I am not particularly happy with this in light that that the rotors life span is now reduced to maybe two more machinings and then they have to be replaced. I'll have another chat with the dealer before the warranty ... Read More
Chrysler garage out of courtesy replaced the steering fluid. Kept hoping for quiet, but there seems to be no difference in the noise when braking and turning. Any other suggestions? Mechanics feel it is suspension related, but they can't fix it. Great.
There is a TSB for it - 19-03-98. See my previous posts (90 and 96 i think). The solution is to replace the steering fluid. I've had feedback from several owners with 100% success. Gogga
My 2003 Sebring sedan was bought new. Around 4000 miles I noticed a crunching, creaking noise in the front end when turning and applying brakes. It does not happen when brakes are not applied. After several visits to the dealership from which the car was purchased without remedy and then being told "it is inherent to the car - all cars have quirks", I called Chrysler. They sent me to another ... Read More
Any other 2003 Chrysler Sebring Coupe owners encounter Sunroof problems? I have had mine into the dealer four times already and am considering pursuing the lemon law in an attempt to get some action. When engaging in the slide motion it shakes and shudders as if it may come off the tracks. The dealership appears to be in a fog on the whole situation. Replacing every sunroof component has still not ... Read More
Hello Everyone. I have enjoyed all the comments about the Sebring. I was interested in purchasing a 2003 Sebring Coup. It is loaded with a price tag of $27,000. Since there are many problems listed would you buy another one? If I go by the Consumer Report it seems that 90% of the cars have some problems. I have a 1998 Cirrus with 107,000 and have never had a problem. I ... Read More
I bought new 03 Chrysler Sebring this year,After 2000 kms it started giving me crunching grinding sound with excessive pulsation, Initially Dealer did not agree with me finally he changed the rotors and Pulsation issue was no longer there, Now Whenever I stop and press brake or Release brakes it give me crunchy sound and also when i steer and press brakes in my drive way it give me crunchy sound. ...

I have been wanting a convertable & have an opportunity to buy a 2003 Chrysler Sebring LX 2 convertable. The car only has 542 miles on it. It is being sold at a local dealership as the original short term owner "won" it in a contest. They are asking 18,900.00 for it. Don't have alot of particulars to post as I briefly looked at it today & am going to test ... Read More
We were quoted $26,000 drive off on a new red 2003 Chrysler Sebring Convertible LXI (V6 with leather). Does this seem like a good price? Dealer also offered us $25,000 drive off on same model but a gold demo with 5k miles.
Bought my 2001 Sebring Sedan LXI in July 2001. Loved it from the first time I saw it in 2000. Several irritating problems though: 1.) 2-Months old - Rattle under middle of car. 5* Dealer tightened but every time there is a temperature change w/ weather (warm to cold) rattle comes back. 2.) 4-Months old - Whinning/Humming Noise coming from front end (transmission) dealer says not transmission. Replaced rt/frnt bearing hub ... Read More
