Beware the timing belt
By Joey Redeye on

Vehicle

1999 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

Review

Don't buy one of these used unless you can be sure the timing belt has been recently replaced. The belt is supposed to last 105K miles, but they frequently break earlier. It's a major repair and can lead to complete engine failure. Handling is a little loose. Brakes are squishy. Road noise way too excessive, even for a convertible.

Best Features

Body design is nice. Interior quality above average. Top works smoothly and fits pretty well.

Worst Features

Find a better engine that doesn't self-destruct at 80-100K.
