    Right now my 2006 Sebring is stuck in my driveway. I cannot get the gear shift out of Park. The car starts with no problem, I put my foot on the brake to move the shift, but it doesn't move!!!!!

    Paid for rebuilt transmission and it still "downshifts" from D to 2nd gear, sometimes will not go forward but will drive in reverse. Too many miles I guess.

    found my gear shifting to be a linkage issue covered under a 2000 recall from Chrysler. Problem solved, no charge

    when car is cold slow to go into gear, have to rev engine and then jerks into gear. Made a whinning sound as well, flushed trans and replaced filter and fluid. This seemed to fix the sound but still slow to shift into gear when cold.

    Right now my 2006 Sebring is stuck in my driveway. I cannot get the gear shift out of Park. The car starts with no problem, I put my foot on the brake to move the shift into reverse but had to force, it did not stay. Still stuck in park!

    The engine files at a stop 15-20mph, it jumps at a stop, it shift while driving down the road then speedometer sticks at 40mph and engine is revving above 3,000 ramps.

    After 210,000 miles, my trans is shifting really hard on accelerations and downshifting as well. Guess its time for a rebuild. Replaces speed sensors and shift solenoid but had no improvement in the shifting. Also changed fluid and filter.
