Why was the 2007 Sebring sluge problem not listed. Why is Chrysler not being held responsible for this very costly defect? Had our's in for service & was told the fix will not last & they put regular oil back in. I was told synthetic oil can only be used for this problem.

Sluge is due to lack of maintenance, including oil changes,air filter,pcv valve any breather hoses.Chrysler did have a bad design on there oil pump pickup tube having to sharp a bend in it and would starve the motor for oil.Synthtic oil wont do much.Change oil and filter every 3,000 miles

All maintenance was done on time. We have low mileage on this car. This is the first Chrysler car we were not satisfied with.
