2002 Chrysler Sebring GTC 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
This car is fun but all the design/build shortcuts make it a question mark as to how long it will hold up. I drive more than 20K miles a year and can see potential problems ahead. At 50K the brakes seem like they need to be replaced, the suspension groans and creaks, the body has lots of rattles and there are small but annoying noises coming from behind the dash. The washer fluid freezes in the winter, the car takes very long to warm up, there is not even a height adjustment on the driver's seat and I can see wear on the convertible top from rubbing on the frame. i wish that I could say lots of good things about it. I really wanted to "drive American" but this unit is a disappointment!
The best feature (other than the fact that it is a convertible) is the 2.7L engine combined with the 5 speed it is surprisingly strong and revs freely to the redline.
Lumbar support, heated seats, locate battery under the hood (instead of in fender well - you have to remove the wheel to get to battery), better gearbox (very balky at times), foglights, a tab for rear window defroster that doesn't come "unglued" and windows that don't chatter going up and down.
