Cool Sebring Alert! Anyone have any issues w/ their Sebring?

So my '04 Sebring has been my first &only car. And with all the trouble I've had with it, I was wondering if anyone else out there has had any issues with their Sebrings!

Don't get me wrong, I love the car. Just with everything that has happened to it, its like a brand new car all over again. &when I got it, it wasn't in bad shape at all!

that is kinda a large spectrum u are asking for every car has it issues, some are made by people some are made by people that dont know what they are doing trying to fix a car and some are just common.

well the past two winters, my transmission has tried to go in it.
'cause i know things go wrong with cars, its common, it happens.
but i just thought that for the transmission (thankfully i caught it in time), to attempt to go twice, as more than just a coincidence.

Transmissions are expensive and complex things. They respond well to tlc. Be sure to change the fluid as recommended by the manufacturer, and use exactly the recommended fluid.
I own 2 Sebrings, a 2001 and a 2002. Knock wood, but the transmissions on both are working well, so I can't suggest that there is a common problem there.

as i said b4 what is wrong with teh trans a trans that U say on the point of going out does not fix itself nor a small repair fix a trans going out. U can have minor repairs such as sensor issue or leaks and neither one will cause major issues.

oh trust me, i know the price of what things can cost.
my car is an '04 sebring. and i love driving it. i don't beat
on it, i'm not a crazy driver. its my only car, if something
happens to that... good luck. i'm a college student, i don't
have cash in my back pocket to buy a new car. haha.

but oh man, with all the stuff that has happened.
this '04 might as well be brand new. it has a brand
new battery as of last may. because of course, right
before graduation- a sophmore backed into me.
battery acid everywhere.

but even before the battery incident.. the transmission
had some issues. and my a/c didn't work for the longest
time. i've had problems with my fan/filter. (sorry i'm not
good with car-lingo yet).

but i can list the things that have gone wrong.. haha.

it was just a curious question. its my first car. & i love it
but with all the issues i've had.. i just wasn't sure if it was
a common thing- transmission- air-filters. or what not.

i love getting feedback!

"Chrysler tech" I'm sorry but I don't understand your wording.
