Review of the 2002 Chrysler Sebring

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Good looks and performance, wide range of body styles, exceptional value.

  • Cons

    No manual transmission in the sedan, build quality and resale value not up to Japanese standards.

  • What's New for 2002

    Even though it was revamped last year, the Sebring line receives a number of changes. An Enthusiast package for the sedan debuts, as will a sporty GTC convertible later in the model year. And to put the Sebring ragtop in reach of more buyers, a lower-priced LX version with the 2.4-liter inline four becomes available.

2002 chrysler sebring lxi coupe.

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I Have Owed 2 Chrysler Sebring Coupes between the years of 2001 and 2002. I love the cars. The body style and the interior is very nice. I enjoy the 3.0 engine. I just wish it had a little more power. But. My issues I'm having on both cars are a Over Heating Issue. Seems like when Im driving up a hill, the car over heats. And, In the summer time. The car over heats alot.. I Have to run the air constantly to keep the fans going.. I was wondering if anyone else has this issue and if anyone could tell me what that is...




Love my car!

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my LXi January 2007 with 59,000 miles on it right out of a lease. This car was my second car and i wanted something sporty, but reliable. I could not believe i found it. I unfortunately will be parting with is soon because I am 6' tall and there is no back seat space even for a car seat, but I can't complain. I didn't want anyone in my car to ruin it anyway! Such a fun car with the sport shifter. I unfortunately got stuck with a noisy suspension that has never given me any problems! First problem I am dealing with is at 115,000 miles the alternator died. That was my turning moment to say I should probably upgrade now before more happens :*(




My excellent sebring coupe!

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased my 02' Sebring LXI coupe used with just over $100,000 miles on it and I was going to be the 3rd owner. I was trading up from my 1997 Sebring coupe. Yep, that's right. I loved my 97' so much I was determined to get another. All maint. records came w/car and throughout very little troubles. And I have done nothing to it but new tires and oil changes in the 2 years I have owned it. It now has 125,000 miles and runs great. I feel so lucky to have such a great car. They are EXCELLENT cars, I highly recommend. Chrysler and other domestic cars are all I will ever own.




A fun-to drive practical commuter

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I did a spreadsheet comparison before I bought the car and am satisfied that I made a good choice. I have had more repairs than I anticipated, but it (so far) never stranded me on the road. Mid-grade gasoline provides good performance with the 5-speed manual transmission. I don't notice any difference with premium gasoline. The turning radius is too wide, but I am comparing it to my Mitsubishi 3000GT. I just looked at a another(2008)coupe, with manual transmission. It seems like a great car, but it offers too few advantages over my paid-off Sebring to persuade me to "upgrade" at this time. I will keep it in mind, however, as the Sebring ages.




Stylin' sebring

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Overall, this has been a great car. It's been very reliable, and I love the pick-up of the 3.0 V6. I get compliments on the body style all the time, and the black paint looks so sleek! Well, it used to until it recently started to fade and oxidize like you wouldn't believe. Especially on the roof and trunk. Dealer said they'd cover the cost of repainting those areas, so we'll see how that goes. Other than the paint, it's been a great car, and I've had no major problems.




Great vehicle

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car new 3 and a half years ago. Have really enjoyed it. Love the style and drive. The only work I've had done on the car has been brake replacement. I do a lot of stop and go driving. The car runs great. Smooth drive and outstanding pick-up. The infinity sound system is also a big plus. The rear seat room is tight, but to be expected in a coupe.
