An average-performing sedan, coupe and convertible lost in a sea of higher-caliber vehicles. Low prices make the Sebring family attractive, but most shoppers should consider other options before signing on the bottom line.

I have had my 2005 Touring Edition for nearly ten years. I will be selling it now to put some money towards the SUV that I really needed for my lifestyle. I had hoped to keep both, but my finances won't allow it. I will miss this little convertible dearly.
Cons - none.
Things I have fixed/replaced - window motor (due to water getting in the door too many times), rear tie-rod ends, engine light has been on for like two years due to O2 sensor (have not fixed). Tune-up/flushed all fluids, etc at about 100,000 miles.
Car has 139,000 miles and I believe it will go many more.

I bought this car new in 2006. The day I brought it home the computer board was shot and had to bring it back next day. Since then nothing but trouble. Car came back with scratches all over the dash and again had to be replaced. I have since paid for two sensors to be replaced had two seals and two belts replaced still not working had it done again and is now sitting in a pubble of oil outside my work. I have had to replace brakes twice new tires and makes a constant noise I only have 39,000 miles on the car. Worst day ever the day I brought home this piece of crap. Too low to the ground, noisy and unreliable. Even the sun roof leaks.

What sold me was the style inside and outside, rear passenger foot room, headlights/driving lamps, and the cornering is wonderful. The 2.7 liter V6 gets the job done for the size of motor and can keep up with most of the 3.0 series engines in the market today. I get and average of 24 to 27 mpg in city and 26 to 30 on hwy which is pretty good for a V6. If you are looking for a great car to have fun in and turn heads this would be that car and a plus is it is affordable.

This was my second Sebring Convertible. I loved my 1999 so much, my next car had to be the same. BIG MISTAKE! I have had this car in to have the roof worked on over a dozen times. The roof is loud and there is a constant ticking coming from multiple locations. There are multiple "loose parts" in the door that sounds like a hanger banging back and forth and the windows rattle along with a vent on the dash that rattles. I've had the car in the shop more than in my garage. They could simply replace the roof (they've taken it off enough times)but insist on trying to repair it with no improvement. The car looks nice, but it's cheaply built.

Definitely Fun to Drive. Roomy interior and beautiful exterior. Overall, a great buy for the price tag. To summarize it's a classy car at an affordable price. You actually get a lot for your money. However, I must say that it took me awhile to get used to the transition from driving an SUV to the convertable. The children love driving in the convertible more than the SUV but it's not practical for use on a daily basis. The children sometimes have many items that they carry to and from school, sports & other activities which we use the SUV on those days.
