2002 Chrysler Sebring GTC 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Update: 44,000 miles. My "black-on- black beauty" 5 speed manual continues to be just that. The mirror-like finish remains deep and clear, and still maintains like-new appearance. The last tank of fuel (city driving) yielded 23 mpg, and that fluctuates in a range of 21-23 city--all on original plugs. With the exception of two switch replacements in the heat-ac blower, the car has been absolutely mechanically excellent. One change noted, however, is the presence in Winter, when the cabin is cold, of loud squeaky sounds where the top meets the windshield frame. As the cabin heats up the sound diminishes in loudness. Handling remains tight & I love the 5 speed control in snow and rain.
(1) 4 disk cd changer, (2) roomy back seat area, (3) tight handling at 44,000 miles, (4) finish maintains original deep and crisp luster (black), (5) easy down-up top + 4 windows down, (6) nuts about the 5 speed manual,(7) trunk is roomy and well designed to protect top rear window when top lowered.
(1) if Chrysler still produced manual 5 speed Sebrings, would suggest more power out of first gear, (2) better synchronicity of the gears for smoother shift flow, (3) auto window UP for the driver, (4) better external badging to denote "5 speed manual", (5) H/ac vent for rear passengers.
