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.

Love my car

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Had this car for 8 years and it now has 158,000 miles. Ran fine until now. I guess it's because of old age/mileage. Now I'm having problems with antifreeze leaking and sometime overheating. I replaced the water pump and thermostat and thermostat housing. All this in a year's time. Still having overheating and antifreeze leaking issues. I hope it can be fixed but it is now starting to nickle and dime me. I guess I can't complain since it never gave me a problem until 2007. But hey, look at my mileage. I love this car and enjoyed it. I just hate to part with it.




Love my convertible

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this baby blue convertible new. It gets really outstanding mileage that it automatically checks for you. I am getting around 32 highway. The only problem I have had during my 70,000 miles was at about 50,000 it wouldn't come out of 1st gear! I drove it slowly, to the dealership where I purchased it. It was a small plastic piece that I learned Chrysler had in it that wore out about that mileage. I had extended warranty and they fixed it. Glad I had it. It is a snazzy looking car, and being blonde, I look good in it with the top down and Andre Bocelli playing when I head to the beach. Great fun and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

Chrysler quality

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Like the cars look. Fun to drive, just wish it wasn't always to get service. How can they make such good mini-vans (I am on my 3rd), yet make such a poor quality convertible. There has never been a time when there wasn't something seriously wrong with it. It leaks trans fluid, oil and coolant. I just got it inspected again at the dealership, currently, the trans solenoid pack needs replacing, the oil pan and oil pressure sending switch is leaking, the rack and pinion is shot, the door "clips" are broken, the leather seats are tearing and I just replaced the right front hub bearing. The windshield washer works good though.




I love this car

I'm amazed at the problems I see on the reviews. I bought this car brand new, with 7 miles on it, and have had no problems whatsoever. It now has 54,000 miles, and I haven't even had to change the battery or the brakes. Everything is running great. I honestly can't find a car on the road that I'd rather have. Plus, even though the car is six- years old, I still get compliments on it regularly.

Limited sebring review

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

First year where heated seats were offered, and is a "must." Light colored leather seats hold up well, even with family use. This is the only convertible that would work for my family size wise (great trunk space and can even fit a bale of hay in it!). Only issue ever with this car is "nagging" Air Bag light warning, that can't seem to be corrected. No set offs or anything though. And the car has been perfect otherwise. Have people offering to buy it often, but can't seem to part with it.




Good deal for a convertible

Vehicle: 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased my 2002 Limited convertible in Jan 2006. It had 30,000 miles on it. I have had no mechanical problems, just change the oil and go. Power, handling and looks are great. The only unusual problem I had was that one of the chrome wheels rusted around the rim and it was impossible to get a good seal to the tire. So, I was getting a constant slow leak I swapped the chrome wheels with some aftermarket rims and new tires and the car looks even better than before!
