1996 Chrysler Sebring JX 2dr Convertible


Bought my used 1996 Sebring JX ragtop 2 and a half years ago. The engine had caught fire due to a problem that had been misdiagnosed by the previous owner so I got it cheap. I also made all the necessary repairs. Now I have a good looking (candy apple red) rag top that I can take on 1000 mile road trips and get 28 mpg. I replaced the top (yes ladies, all rag tops leak to some extent and at some point tops will wear out)It handles well and is a very practical car that is a rag top. The Mitsubishi 2.5 V-6 is a much better engine than the Chrysler engine used in later sebrings. It is a tough car to work on though. When my engine finally dies I will replace it with a 3000 GT engine.

Best Features

Styling. I think the 96 Sebring rag top was one of the best looking cars of the decade. Practicality. What other rag top seats 4 people, their luggage and gets 28 mpg?

Worst Features

The 2.5 engine should have been the base engine, and the 3.0 Mitsubishi 3000GT engine should have been an option.
