2001 Chrysler Sebring Question: cost estimate to replace 4 ball joints and an alignment

 

Question

laramie, 2.7L V6, Amherst, MA, February 03, 2012, 12:47
 Rookie

I've experienced alot of repair/maintenance issues with this vehicle; specifically involving the front end suspension and alignmnets etc... I realize one's driving habits can play a huge role in the durability of the involved parts, but i've been very cautious with this vehicle and it hasn't made a difference in the repair needs.
Does this model have a bad a poor track record in this area?
