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


Review

Have very cold winters here. Bought with less than 20,000 miles on it. Resistor in blower motor broke, REPEATEDLY! Had persistent front axle problems! Once original brakes needed replacement, they were never right. Wiper motor died. Transmission troubles. ALL window motors quit working! Once the extended service warranty ran out, all these were VERY expensive to fix! Brake pedal FROZEN at cold temps! Apparently I'm the only one who had this problem? We don't have a garage. Took it back to the dealer over & over. They couldn't fix it! This car was supposed to go with my daughter when she went away to a school farther north. She ended up with the "new" car as I didn't trust this one!


Favorite Features

A fun car to drive! Excellent pick- up! Looks good. Comfy. Loved the back seat fold-up for extra cargo space! Good gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Fix overall mechanical flaws, esp. those DANGEROUS brakes!

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


Review

I love the comfort and handling of this car. It does have the 2.7 V-6, which I am familiar with the oil sludge issue, but will take care to prevent clogging with regular oil changes and motor flushes. This car is quick upon acceleration, quiet, offers a soft, stable ride, as well as good gas mileage. I'm averaging around 28 miles per gallon in my Sebring.


Favorite Features

All of them. The locations to all feature controls are simple to understand and well within reach.


Suggested Improvements

Better door guides, they have parts that tend to crack, causing the doors to creak upon opening and closing.

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


Review

Bought it new 8 years ago and still love this thing! Its so stylish and luxurious for $22,000. After 7 years the battery died once, the struts rattle on bumps and could use a replacement, and I need to replace the wiper blades because squeak really loud when you use them, so it has its typical wear and tear but the interior still has a newish smell amazing because I have 3 kids riding in it all the time! There is a lot of road noise but overall it is my favorite car I've had. I love the way it drives, it has sporty suspension which turns really well and has really good pick-up for a small V6 which means good gas mileage, I would say it gets about 23mph. Good job Chrysler!


Favorite Features

Leather, power seats, and fuel sipping yet fast V6


Suggested Improvements

More sound insulation, heated seats(Though the 2003 model year features heated seats), and better cup holder location.

Review

I chose this car because it has a lot better style than the 2002 chevy malibu, or a 2002 ford focus, chrysler has always been good with designs. The leather still smells new 7 years later and only the struts and wiper blades need to be replaced. The 2.7 V6 seems small but it really has a lot of zip. Overall its a nice car with lots of style interior and exterior, even 7 years later it looks really good. The FWD is still good in Michigan winters!


Favorite Features

Leather, V6 engine, power, good gas mileage, and style.


Suggested Improvements

stronger steel, gets scratched easily, heated seats would be nice, though were added in 2003, but it would be nice in the '02 model.
