Review of the 2001 Chrysler Sebring

  • Whether you want a stylish sedan, sporty coupe or carefree convertible, Chrysler offers some appealing alternatives to the status quo.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Value packed, powerful V6, sleek shape.

  • Cons

    Poor resale value, no manual transmission for sedans.

  • What's New for 2001

    The Sebring sedan debuts for 2001 along with redesigned versions of the coupe and convertible. A new, more powerful V6 joins the enlarged four-cylinder, with a manual five-speed available in the coupe. The Autostick automanual is still an option for those who can't decide where they stand on the shift issue, but only on upscale LXi models with the V6. An Infinity premium sound system with an in-dash CD changer is also new this year.

Still love mine!

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my Chrysler Conv used w 10k miles an I now have 62K. I use it every day! Yes I have had some minor issues and most under warranty but she purrs like a kitten. I drive every day to and from work and on trips get 31 mpg. In town 21 or 22. Used the dealer under warranty and now have honest mechanic. Replaced brakes twice because i am hard on brakes, seal went on transmission, no biggie. Drives Great, Looks great, Inside looks brand new. Have to do regular maintenance.




Cheap thrills!

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Bought it 5 yr used at 112k miles. I wanted a car I could take to university that didn't say "Cheap" or "Eco". Bought it below PP price from a dealer (5.5k). It ran great and was reliable till the time i broke it... wasn't the same after repairs. Sold it off 4 months back. The car is quite powerful. 200HP in a light car is not gonna be slow. The Daimler Influences are evident because this "American" car is a decent handler. The 4 speed gear box isn't great but it does let you slam the accelerator and use the full RPM range before it shifts. The car looks great and the drop top is nice for the 3 months in a year that it can be put down. I liked the noises the engine made as well.

Great car

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I have had this car for 6 years now. Absolutely love it. Can't fault it. No major costs incurred and good mileage considering its over 6 years old now. I live in Erie PA where we get LOTS of snow. Car handles the slippery roads well. I hope to have it for many more years! Possibly forever - I would hate to part with it.




Best value convertible ?

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I've had my car for over a year and in addition to providing me with great summer entertainment, it performed formidably throughout a full Canadian winter. The car is beautiful, fairly economical, and the acceleration is smooth and quick. The single largest problem that this car has is body shake. It becomes especially noticeable when the top gets thoroughly wet. If the 2007 Hard Top will address these issues, I might re-think buying the convertible Solara.




Can't top chrysler

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Great car. It replaced a same year Neon, which was also a great car, but I wanted a droptop. I sacrificed my new system in my Neon for the Chrysler premium audio system, it sounds good, but will definitely be replaced in the future. One thing I wish the Sebring had was a CD player, it's available with the higher end models or extra option. Drives great, love the V6, has balls. Wind noise at interstate speeds is minimal unless there is strong wind outside, then its a little louder, but can be fixed with extra stripping around the front and rear window junctions. I drove it from my hometown to Denver the day I purchased it, and it was superb. The gas mileage was comparable to my Neon.




Good look but poor suspension

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased my convertible new and enjoy driving it with the top down but it needs better suspension for bumpy roads. The engine is quiet but having a convertible makes it noisy. I have had some leaking from the top and rear defroster not working. I have 35000 miles and it has been reliable. But I am disappointed of the poor resale value of these vehicles. Chysler has a good visual look but in- town ride is rough.
