Review of the 1997 Chrysler Sebring

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    There is quite a bit of luxury in this sporty coupe or convertible. A short options list makes the decision easy.

  • Cons

    It would be nice to find the 5-speed manual transmisison with the V-6 engine.

  • What's New for 1997

    After just one year in production, the Sebring Convertible receives several changes. The most significant are a quieter intake manifold for the 2.4-liter engine and the availability of Chrysler's AutoStick transmission. Other changes include the addition of new colors, auto-dimming mirror, trip computer, enhanced vehicle theft system and damage-resistant power antenna to the options list.

Vehicle: 1997 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe

I bought this car January of 2013 and have had it over a year and it has been a money pit. I've had to replace the brake lines, tie rods and various other items. The radio stopped working and the emergency brake broke. It is also rusted out under the body and I'm told it's only a matter of time until it comes to a point it can't be driven. However I'll admit it is an old car and the previous owner(s) didn't take care of it well. It looks and feels decent but the ride is noisy and it is a painfully slow car. If you are considering buying this vehicle be sure to examine it closely and consider another vehicle first.




Nice car

Even though the car is really a Mitsubishi Eclipse with a Chrysler body it is a nice sporty, fast car. It handles really good, mine has 140,000 miles on it and it starts better in the winter better than my neighbor's VW.

Overall, this is a nice ride. I bought it for my son's first car, and it was a good choice. I have had a few repairs, but its an old car. I would definitely get another if it came up.




I love it

Vehicle: 1997 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe

This was my first car. I bought it from a previous owner and I was soo happy with it. Not too shabby for a first car I must say. Very fast, and great looking. The only thing I didn't like was the front bottom panel got really bent from being so low to the ground. The only reason I am getting rid of it is because I'm going to need something better in the snow to go to college with. I'm going to miss this car sooo much, it has never left me stranded and I'm going to sell it to a family member so it won't be going too far. Buy this car if you ever come across one, you won't be disappointed.




98000 miles and zoommmmmm!

A solid good car that is fun to drive. A 2-door, but with the room of a 4- door and plenty of trunk space.
