Updating the chrysler sebring

Stylishly curvaceous, the first-generation Chrysler Sebring was a very handsome car.Introduced as a coupe, with a convertible version added in 1996, the Sebring was a standout in the mid-size segment.

Chrysler offered three generations of the Sebring, before ultimately killing the nameplate at the end of the 2010 model year.

Chrysler went into model year 2011 offering the Sebring with some styling updates as the Chrysler 200, in a bid to enable the revised car to bask somewhat in the radiance of its popular 300 sedan.

Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne said the recalls are “an indication of our aggressive quality-control protocol.” Chrysler said there have been three reported accidents and one “minor” injury as a result of the air bag issue in the minivans and that it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the head rest issue.

Most of the affected vehicles are in the United States.

In another recall announced on Wednesday, Chrysler said 69,000 of its 20 pickup trucks with all-wheel drive may have an electronic stability control software glitch.

Chrysler said it has received a “small amount” of reports from dealers that the electronic stability control lamp was illuminated, indicating that the system was disabled.

Of these, 224,250 are in the United States and 49,30 in Canada.

Affected models are 2013 Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country and Ram Cargo Van.

For 2001, the coupe was based on Mitsubishi’s Eclipse, while the sedan and convertible were spun off of the platform evolved from the Cirrus.

Quite uncharacteristically, the convertible and the sedan shared sheetmetal, rather than the convertible and the coupe.

Included in the recalls announced on Wednesday are about 490,000 cars and SUVs that have potentially faulty micro computer components for head rests that are designed to move forward during rear-end crashes.
