Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Coupe

Just bought my Sebring coupe in March.I got a great deal on it and it's a fun car to drive,This is the 68th car I've owned and I love it.Great mileage,handles well(except on washboard roads)and accelerates quickly!No problems to speak of.I've owned Mopars from '72 to '96 and this is the best one yet.Does have a hesitation from a stop,but I'll work that out this Summer.I highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a good,fun car that's dependable and stylish and reasonably priced.

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Coupe

I absolutely love my Sebring Convertible!!! It's a fun and sexy car. It handles like a dream. My only complaint is that for the size of the car, the gas mileage should be much better. Other that that... it's a fantastic ride. After almost 11 years, it sill looks new. No major problems at all. I'll buy another one as soon as this one gives out.




The best car i ever

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Coupe

I bought my 96 chrysler sebring in september of last year and i had a chevy tahoe 98 but i feel way safer in my car than i did in the tahoe. i mean i like chevy a lot but this car is so good in the winter. I live in anchorage, alaska and let me tell you its the best ever. The best of all its nice and it's a head turner and its fast.

I bought this car from my mother, who bought it new. We both have enjoyed it. My only disappointment is the sound system. The controls on the console do not work properly. Other than that it would be perfect.




First car

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Coupe

This car was a great first car. The major problem that I had with the car was that everything started to break at aroung 75,000 miles. The air-conditioner is a real problem. I had it fixed once, but it broke again a year later. The compressor broke in two. That is a fundamental design problem. Also this car is very expensive to fix. I would suggest if you like the looks of this car get a newer one and trade it in before it reaches 75,000 miles. If you are on the tall side the seat may be a little uncomfortable on long trips. It tends to round your shoulders forward which on short trips is fine, but it really starts to hurt your back after a while.




Biggest mistake

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Coupe

This car seemed like a great investment at 60,000 miles. It was initially very fun to drive, the pick up was great. Then one thing after another started to go: power locks, power seat, brake problems, the wheel literally fell off of the axle, the struts needed to be replaced, the transmission is going, cruise control works sometimes when it wants to and sometimes shuts my car off, problems with the battery connectors... I've put way too much money into this car. Also, the seats are not comfortable for long trips and there's very little cup holder space.
