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.

Worst car i ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought car in 2004 with less than 12,000 miles - had problems ever since - I drive less than 50 miles per month. Power windows broken and replaced; fumes inside car when starting; ac/heater only works on high; alternator being replaced now; waiting for entire engine to go - I love the look of this car but it is not worth all the repair bills. Now engine making "funny noise" - I hope it isn't expensive to fix - on disability and can't afford it anymore. Chrysler should be ashamed especially since they took tax payer money for bailout. Bet they have no car problems, will never ever have another Chrysler product.




Best car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I bought this Sebring from a dealer as a "Program Car" with 18K miles on it and used it to cover a 9-State sales territory as a consultant until I retired from that a few years ago; hence the high miles. It is currently garaged and seldom driven. I've had zero problems from this car and intend to keep it forever.




Steer clear of the sebring

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I just recently got my lisence last summer and this was my first car. At first glance you would say its a nice looking car but looks don't count for everything. When i got it, it has about 114,000 miles on it. The transmission had been replaced along with a power steering pump. I thought that this car would last me for a few years but after having the car for one day the fuel pump gave out. Shortly after the ac went bad along with the back two windows. When winter hit the car struggled to start and the thermostat went bad making it very difficult to drive. Also because of it's low power and heavy body, it made it slmost impossible to drive in the winter.




Great car, poor reliability

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Took car to dealership 3 times at 39,000 miles for stalling/ failing to start ended up having to replace my 2.7 L v6 engine not covered by my extended warranty, air conditioning doesn't work anymore, neither does the stereo or parking brake. Still, it's very comfortable, handles well, gets decent gas mileage, and it's paid for. Guess that's why I still drive it

I love my 2001 sebring

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

I Have owned my car for 7 years haven't had any real problems with it currently have 104,000 miles, but I keep it well maintained with oil changes,and general maintenance, the one thing I dislike is the cup placement it is right in front of cd changer and I haven't been able to use the Cd player due to a cd Jam, that happened when i put my cup in the holder.




I love it!

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Bought it at 116,000 miles from a used auto place down the road for 6,000. Even thought it's the lx, it was loaded. 2.7 v6, 4 disc cd changer (which I took out). I looked at some other models and this one is the only one that appealed to me. Light colored dash, cloth seats, wood grain (although semi- cheap looking) and of course 200 hp. I change the oil myself every 2500 miles with castrol gtx high mileage 5w30 and use Fram oil filters. I've had it for a year and it's now up to 153,000 miles. Today, I took off the valve cover and absolutely no oil sludge. AT ALL! I'm not going to say all the 2.7's are great but I sure do know this one is! Great Car.
