A Piece of the 50
By renewedamericanbuyer on
2002 Chrysler Sebring GTC 2dr Convertible (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Formerly a Jaguar owner going through a mid-life crisis, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet purchasing a Bright Silver Sebring GTC. Though not a Jaguar by far, it is an absolute joy to drive, except for the constant, rough transmission shifting in and out of 1st gear (auto), rain dropping in with a window open (a simple rain drip molding at the windshield would solve this issue), cheap interior trim that even Hyundai surpasses in quality, lack of what we currently deem necessary standard equipment absent, unavailable, or non-equipped from the factory, and an enhanced ownership program would be nice, after all, isn't that what the merger with Mercedes was meant to do? Where's the substance?!
In several ways it reminds me of the grandeur of the '50s Chryslers, though lacking all of the luster of the "new, pioneering equipment" that Chryslers were renowned for and held bragging rights to, the sebring is a joy, but seems to fall short of delivering absolute bliss. Owning a Chrysler again.
Quality interior & int features and materials, enhanced std equipment such as: TRANSMISSION!, projector headlamps, security, std side airbags, seating surfaces, auto lamps, improved int lighting, a lot more "glitz", improved bumper to bumper warranty, improved dealer relations towards customers
