1998 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe


Review

Yeah those cheap chrysler rims and the brakes I fixed but it does look good! I had to tape together the bottom of the front bumper from curb and road rash, to low! Nice exhaust sound to bad it doesnt translate into horsepower although it goes if you keep your foot in it. The one thing not mentioned is this cars higher insurance rating, still I'll keep it for awhile its kinda fun. Watch out for those curbs and potholes or you'll be looking for new rims!


Best Features

looks,exhaust sound


Worst Features

better rims

Review

I have been happy with this car mechanically....but....too low in front, bad turning radius, rattles in glovebox and sunroof, exterior cladding fell off, stiff ride(but enjoyable). I have owned it since new. I would not buy another one. It has been an OK car and decently good looking. The cab forward design was interesting for looks but practical it is not. The newer models don't look as good, and the redesign doesn't even look promising. I won't recommend this car used unless you plan on adding a lot of aftermarket styling and equipment...should be cheap. It isn't even worth what edmunds or bluebook says it is worth.


Best Features

Looks and equipment load out.


Worst Features

Where to start....they did the basics on the newer models but style went to pot. Stay away, Chrysler doesn't do enough to actually call them improvements.

Review

I bought this car as a previous salvage with low mileage. I put over 50K miles on it in two and a half years and only replaced the starter and the battery. When I bought this car I heard of the trans problems so I made sure to maintain the trans every 30k, if you do this I don't think you will have any major problems. Overall this car defines reliability.


Best Features

Reliability, looks, get good gas milage, smooth ride.


Worst Features

Turning radius, leg room.

Review

After owning my '98 Sebring LXi for almost a year now, I can honestly say I am very pleased with my decision. The key, if you are thinking about purchasing a Sebring coupe, make sure you test it out and test it quite extensively. Transmissions are an achilles heel so ensure shifts are smooth at numerous RPM settings. The 2.5 V6 is silky smooth - just be sure to replace the timing belt around 100,000 miles to ensure everything keeps going for another 100,000. Sure, there are a few minor niggles but the sheer fact that these cars are packed with some features now seen on premium luxury cars (garage door opener, auto-dim mirror, etc.) makes a used Sebring an incredibly good deal.


Best Features

Smoothness of the V6; Infinity Audio; Turn of the millenium, chic style. Long legs on the highway too (turns 3000 rpm at 80mph and only 1900 rpm at 60mph!)


Worst Features

Front valence ("the mouth") is very low - be CAREFUL! Alloys are soft and on low profile tires, may bend on severy potholes. Some slight tranny whine at certain speeds.
