Review of the 1998 Chrysler Sebring

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    We like the Sebring's fresh exterior shape, and usable interior. The optional V-6 engine is worth the price of admission.

  • Cons

    It would be nice to find the 5-speed manual transmission with the V-6 engine. After all, this is supposed to be a sporty car.

  • What's New for 1998

    Evolutionary, mostly aesthetic changes enhance the Sebrings this year. The Sebring Coupe LX and LXi now offer a black and gray interior,…

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe

I had gotten my Sebring, almost 2 years ago. After the first year, It started turning off when I was driving it back and forth to school. We took it to many mechanics and they said that they couldn't find what was wrong with it. But quite a few said it might be the fuel pump. It is a good car over all. I loved it when my parents first pulled it in the parking lot.

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe

I've had my '98 Sebring Lxi for 3 years now. I've sunk around $2500 into it. Had to replace the upper passenger side control arm, alternator, timing belt, computer, fuel pump & lines, and both tie-rods. Cheapest tire replacement was $121 each. I love the aggressive style of the car and the interior but all the money into it is not worth it.

Vehicle: 1998 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

This Sebring is the first generation sebring and in my opinion the best! It is an affordable convertible that is not boring to look at or drive by any means. It has a refined transmission with plenty of power but pretty good mpg. If you are in the market for a convertible consider this one.
