2002 Chrysler Sebring Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased the car brand new. It drives extremely well. Had to replace back struts and battery after 8 years of driving. Love the car. My only complaint is the ceiling is a little low for the taller people in my family. I'd purchase the same care again, no problem.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, styling and color (sapphire blue)


Worst Features

A little more head room.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with 58,315 miles on the 2.7 V-6 engine. Knowing the issues associated with this engine, I performed a motor flush, switched to full synthetic motor oil, and replaced the PCV valve. Also, I had the transmission flushed, cooling system flushed, and tune up performed. This is a good, reliable car and solid for being 8 years old. Not knowing how the previous owner cared for the vehicle, I had all that preventive maintenance done. I average about 27 mpg with my Sebring and for the most part, I'm satisfied.


Best Features

Access to all knobs/handles and they're clearly easy to understand. Smooth ride, great stereo system.


Worst Features

Braking could be better, that should be noted for the 2011 model.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Sedan LXi 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

46,000 Miles, 1 owner. I have replaced: front end (2X, no grease fittings), 2 rear struts, cat converter, both passenger & driver front door panels, air bag electronics, AC compressor (2X), power door locks (2X), trunk pneumatic, wiper motors, headlamps (4X). I repainted to cover skin cancer (Chrysler admitted paint issue). Engine lite comes on and engine stalls intermittently w/o cause. Foam in pass compartment deteriorates and blows black plastic over everything. Plastic trim around doors brittle, cracking. Total out-of-pocket cost for these repairs to date: $10,700 [$4000 this year so far]. Chrysler admits all of these are their fault but none are part of any recall.


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Let Chrysler go bankrupt just like my dealer did!

Review

After reading about the 2.7 V-6 issues I ran motor flush through the engine and replaced the oil with full synthetic. Purchased in a 5 qt container, the price isn't much more than if I purchased standard oil. The car is quiet, very comfortable to drive, handles curves far better than Chevy Malibu, and gets good fuel mileage. I'd recommend this car to anyone looking.


Best Features

Body style, location of heat/air condition controls, drive and ride quality.


Worst Features

Door hinges/guides, if the same style of guides are still being used today, upgrade to better quality, these tend to rust or have parts that snap, which make the doors creak loudly upon opening and closing. Also, needs better braking performance. Other than that, it's a good car.

Review

I really lucked out with this car. I got it for a wonderful price and nothing major has gone wrong with it at all. I have been so happy with this car. I don't know if I just got really lucky but it has out performed my previous 3 Mazdas.. I couldn't continue with the Mazdas because they got too pricey for me at the time so I went American and boy am I happy I did. Only had to do basic maintenance- brake pads- rotors - new tires etc. But nothing else! I hope a I have as good luck with my next purchase.


Best Features

I like the dashboard, I like the way it handles, like the space, good trunk size, like that the back seats go down


Worst Features

Visibility- just has a bad blind spot using rear side view mirrors. (That was listed in review when I bought it, too)
