2007 Chrysler Sebring

Hi! I recently purchased a 2007 Chrysler Sebring (first car! yay, right?) but I have been noticing problems since I purchased the car from a private seller.

(2007 Chrysler Sebring)
I have noticed a problem with the driver side door panels. I can't roll my window up or down from the driver side, and I can not lock or unlock doors from that side so I have to get out, go to the passenger side and lock my doors from there. Within a few hours, my doors will be unlocked on their own and I was not given a fob to make it easier on me. So, it is looking like an electrical problem, right? Will that be pricey to fix? I went for an oil change and while running the diagnostics, I have cylinders misfiring and the car almost jerks gently when stopped at red lights. Also, when the car is parked in my driveway, a slight incline, I use my parking brake, but I have noticed that my odometer goes up while the vehicle is sitting! For example, I parked one day at 90,311 miles and came out the next day to 90,313. Sorry it's a lot, but it has been becoming something that seems costly. Any help is appreciated! Thank you in advance!
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Nothing

Hello,

Regarding the door lock issues, it sounds like a possible switch or wiring issue at the master switch in the driver's door. Inspection and testing must be performed, but since multiple concerns are originating from the same place, that's where I'd start looking.

Engine misfires, if present, must be diagnosed hands on and will require repair to prevent further damage.

Your odometer simply cannot increase mileage without moving -- I don't have any insight on that at all. Again, hands on diagnostic testing is required.

Sounds like you invested in a vehicle with some troubles. Hopefully you can get some local guidance who can be of help.
