2001 Chrysler Sebring Convertible LXi 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Watch out for this car! I have had so many repairs from the tie rods and ball joints, to coolant problems, to most recently a flawed computer system which killed the entire engine

Review

bought my 2001 used for 1,000 put a transmission in it. the coolant parts are made of plastic. ran hot had to replace everything that was plastic even radiator. everything under the hood is cramped. why not have a radiator that is simple instead of a water reservoir. makes no since. what was the engineer who designed the Sebring convertible thinking. mix hot water with plastic and in cramped space. but my car is still nice. im having to replace freeze plugs and hope to have it back on the road again.

2001 Chrysler Sebring Convertible LXi 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For years I was reluctant to purchase a Sebring Covertible because of the reliability issues I had heard about. However having recently sold a wonderful Saab 9-3 Convertible I decided to give a used Sebring Convertible a try. Although the build quality might not be quite up to Saab standards, it is very acceptable for this price point in the market. The LXi sold for approx. $28,000 new as opposed to nearly $43,000 for the Saab.
What it may lack in build quality it makes up for with better structural rigidity, a smooth ride and smooth V6. (Just be sure to maintain the engine religiously) The most pleasant surprise is the exceptional gas mileage, and the roominess also desrves mention.


Best Features

Great sounding Infinity Stereo - AM-FM Cassette and 4 CD changer all in dash. Well laid out controls. Exceptional fuel economy over 30 mpg in all highway driving. 27 mpg mixed driving. High teens to 20 in city driving. Roomy, attractive interior. Beautiful styling. Lack of cowl shake or chassis flex (much less than in the Saab 9-3 I owned. Roomy trunk. Decent power - smooth V6 engine. Great value. Relatively inexpensive to repair (parts are not grossly overpriced) Again - Just make sure to change oil regularly and perform all preventive maintenance.


Worst Features

These really are nits being picked but here goes - Build quality could be better - still acceptable for this price range. Weak door stops that tend to crack with use. Can be suspeptible to water leaks as with most convertibles, but fairly easy to trace and repair. One issue to watch for - the 2.7 liter engine reportedly can be prone to engine sludge issues - so be sure to service it regularly. Please note I consider a score of 3 "good or average" a 4 "very good or above average" and a 5 "excellent"

Review

I bought this car from a used car dealership. It looks great and drives well. The suspension is sub-par. have had problems with the shocks/struts, ball joints. However, the engine runs terrific and gets great gas mileage.


Best Features

The gas mileage.


Worst Features

Suspension.
