2003 Chrysler Sebring LXi 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
I have owned this car for a year and a half. The previous owners treated it like crap, as in the oil looked like it had never been changed and the brakes ate the rotors, and there were cigarette burns in the seats. I got it for 3500 in 2009. I cleaned it out, changed the oil and brakes. Since then i haven't had any problems(short of vandalism) with the car. I bought it with 54k on it. It now has 75k and it feels better actually. You cant even feel the engine running, and shifts are smooth. I do all my own maintenance so i now know the car like the back of my hand. I feel the engine will last me at least 200k(my grandma sold hers with no problems at 150k).
V6,easy wiring layout(installed dvd player, and python security system), reliable engine. slim look, sun roof.
thicker fiberglass bumbers(not to sturdy, but ok), make battery easily accessible, don't put the engine in sideways!!.
