Still enjoying the ride

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

I bought this car new in August 2000 and have driven it for 11 years. That's 11 years on the streets of Chicago -- cold winters, hot summers, wheel-chewing potholes -- you name it, we have it. I hit 100,000 miles at the end of 2006, and now it's over 186,000. Took a road-trip to Seattle circa 2008; what a way to travel! The car was totally reliable through about 2008. After that, problems started creeping up, but that's hardly surprising for its age, mileage, and driving conditions. Given a choice, I'd buy this car again in a second. I'll be driving it till it stops.




Worst car ever

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

I have never had more problems with one car in my life. It only had 32,000 miles when I purchased it and now only 73,000 3 years later. Constantly in the shop for tie Rods and ends mostly the right side. Also blew freeze plugs and ac out twice, fuel pump went out and left me stranded. Front passenger seat almost threw my passenger thru the window due to cam not matching for seat. You name it and it has happened. I would never recommend anyone buy this car. I also paid only $10,000 and got 3 years extended warranty. I have only 800 miles till it runs out. It is in the shop as we speak. I have acquired gastritis and ulcers from this car and no health insurance cost thousands for med




Poor workmanship

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

Paid 10k, spent 4 k in repairs over 3 yrs Leaking problem-coolant, transmission, oil Brakes problem: Fixed over and over, still squeaky, bad parts A/C Heating: A/C use shuts down engine in summer. Heat won't work unless you put it on level 4 Reliability: Say a prayer everytime you leave your driveway and hope it doesn't shut down. Overall: With regular maintenance, there is always a minimum $600-1000 cost of repairing something. Went broke with this car, all other bills started being paid late because I put all our money into keeping this car on the road




Fun car that impresses

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

I absolutely love getting compliments from people, just the other day a lady of at least 70 years said nice car kid! Anyways, this car is no Mustang GT, but it is very fun to drive. The engine sounds great, and it handles the back roads in my area like a pro! Awesome car and I plan on keeping it for a long time




The car from hell

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

I hate to sound negative but THIS car should be shredded, then incinerated!!! I have had nothing but continual trouble and repeat trips for repair this car that has already cost me more money than what it is worth, is always breaking down, just had the ACI valve and fuel pump replaced and I am still having trouble, nothing has changed it is the "LeBARON" with a clever makeover that is not fooling anyone, to other owners DUMP THIS CAR AND RUN!!! THERE IS NO FIXING IT... read the reviews CONTINUAL PROBLEMS!!!!




Been very happy

Vehicle: 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible

I bought my 2000 Sebring JXI new. The vehicle is now 6 years old and has 84,000 miles on it. I am very particular, changed the oil and filters religously. The car looks and runs like it just came off the showroom floor. I have changed the brakes and rotors, battery, serviced the trans and cooling system, basic maintenance you expect to keep a car purring. The only problem I had was the sensor on the trans failed which was under warranty. The wires connecting the rear defroster failed several times, so I gave up on that. The sun visor clips broke several times, no big deal inexpensive items to replace and change out easily. The sound system is excellent for stock. Love my car. I recommend.
