2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car with no pre-conceptions of Chrysler, I'm from the UK. It was exceptionally clean and well cared for with 114k on the clock, looked factory new inside and out. It's reliable, nice to drive, excellent driver ergonomics. The interior is tasteful and well built. The bodywork is of high quality. BUT! before you buy, check to see if the timing chain and water pump have been changed. Be aware that when the water pump fails as they all do eventually, it will end up fouling the engine oil if left too long as it's INSIDE the crankcase and runs off the timing chain. Repair is approx. $1350.00 at a Chrysler dealer. Be sure to factor this in when haggling! Check your coolant often!
Comfortable driver's seat. Smooth, powerful engine,
reasonably economical. 31-34mpg on highway, replaced spark plugs and an O2 sensor. Prior milage 27-28 mpg on the highway. Nice interior built from quality materials.
Brakes could be better. Rear head restraints should have been included. Leather seats would have been nice as standard on the top end model.
