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


Review

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.


Worst Features

The car is complicated and even though parts are relatively cheap labor costs are immense. eg water pump is under the engine (labor:$697, parts:$472). The mpg i got was 20.5-21 when i drove normally and 18-19 when i thrashed it in 70% Highway, 30% City. In short its great until something goes wrong

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


Review

Car rides and handles quite well. Comfortable for long trips. Looks pretty good with some decent quality to the interior materials, not full of cheap plastic. Very good stereo. Have had no real problems with it, so very reliable. Much better in that regard than my 2004 Hyundai Accent, or 90's model Ford cars. On the downside the fuel mileage isn't great. The visibility and maneuverability are somewhat lacking but I'm used to compact cars. This is a bit of a boat. Windshield defrost takes forever, very ill conceived big center vent in the dash. Low ground clearance. Only a four speed automatic, should be five or six gears. Overall pretty happy.


Best Features

Ride, stance, stereo, seat comfort, reliability, and power.


Worst Features

Has no ABS (was an option), should have been standard on top of the line model. Same with lumbar support, heated mirrors, etc. Fuel economy isn't great (2.7L V6), neither is the head room. Really hate the windshield defrost, terrible design.

2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

One of the finest cars I've owned. A real head-turner & BMW- surpriser! I got the loaded performance 5-speed with 24-value Mitsu V6. Gorgeous indigo exterior with gray leather, "wood" trimmed, 4-CD blowout sounds interior. At first changes added; K&N filter, Z- Max & 245x45 Toyo's. Been absolutely rock-solid reliable & that's even after hot laps around Sears Point & Laguna Seca! What a rush. Only complaints are a bit too much wind noise, limited rear quarter vision, & power mirrors lost power. Oil, belts, brakes, & tires are only money I've had to put in. At 75,000 miles. No major maintenance until I reach 90,000 miles + 100,000 warranty to boot! Great!


Best Features

Body style & paint color. Great, wide- torque + 5-speed = fun! Unique gray leather interior with fabulous sound system.


Worst Features

Improve or lose the "automatic" rear view mirror dimmer. Dual exhaust.

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


Review

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


Best Features

Comfortable seats, good handling and acceleration with performance tires, still like the exterior styling


Worst Features

Unreliable engine

Review

Wife bought the car on impulse: now an all-time fave. This car runs smooth as silk w/ 48,000 mi on it. Its quick and very agile. Had to change out ball joints and other front-end stuff at great expense, but after driving new Saab, Audi and MB convertibles, decided the differences weren't worth $40,000! I'll keep it!


Best Features

Looks great, runs fast and smooth. corners like a sports car. can fit 4 real people.


Worst Features

New sebring is a mushy old folks car. bring back the sporty qualities.
