I'm an original owner of 2003 Sebring LX.
I've got 200k miles on it, the only major repair I had was when I had to replace the water pump last year & by choice had the trans replaced right before the warranty expired. Other than normal wear & tear(brakes/plugs,etc) I have all original parts on the car...including the exhaust system.
Maybe I just got lucky, but I love my 4-banger! :)
