1998 Chrysler Sebring JXi 2dr Convertible


Review

For a seven yr old car it has plenty of get up and go. People notice it. I bought it on line, and drove it home (1,000 miles) with no problems. It is smooth shifting and has plenty of power for this 60 yr old grandmother. I prefer it to my vintage corvette.


Best Features

It's well equiped. Has everything I could ever use, and some I'll never use.


Worst Features

None. It's a great used car.

1998 Chrysler Sebring LXi 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought as a used car. It is really fun to drive and I lke but I had so many probles with the front end and rear suspensions. It was OK to fix these parts as I really like the car but all the parts are very expensive. I recommend to by this car brand new and if used should be in a perfect shape and condition. I love my car despite all these problems and I won't get rid of it.


Best Features

Infinity Sound System, Style and Interior design.


Worst Features

Chrysler should take more care of this care as I thin it would be a great product if all suspension and mechanical problems are solved in newer versions.

Review

After 80000 miles and 7 years later, the body is still in excellent shape and the paint still shines. But the tie-rod ends go bad and then break, yes I said break, so you cannot steer when they break and could cause an accident. So have them replaced as soon as you buy one of these cars, or have the owner do it before you buy. The cross over tube in your cooling system deteriorates and needs to be replaced, kind of pricey. The rear defogger hasn't worked since I bought the car. The tranny is geared high so you don't get the full effect of the 168hp V6. And the computer puts the engine at idle once you hit 105mph. Doesn't go any faster unless you can get the rev limiter shut off.


Best Features

Looks, power, stereo sounds good. Fun to drive, and handles pretty good. Excellent in the snow.


Worst Features

Tie rods ends need to be recalled, or be required change like the timing belt. Change Tie rod ends at around 70000 miles. Lowered gearing on the auto trannys, the new ones do the same thing.

Review

Car has been a pleasant surprise.
Expected road noise with a convertible
and I got it, but the ride is superb,
even after 134,000 miles. Gas
mileage runs 24-27. The OEM Michelin
tires got 60,000 miles, so did the
second set and I'm on #3. Back seat
is useless for anyone except small
kids. Trunk is okay, but not roomy.
Battery placement (I changed it once)
is horrendous, in the wheelwell on the
front driver side, what an engineering
screw-up. Stereo was clear and loud
even with the top down. Bottom line,
it's been a fun car with the top down
or up!


Best Features

Great ride, handles well, hugs the road.


Worst Features

Relocate battery. Cup holders in a bad location, none in the back. Early '98's had compass/outside temp. gauge, they took it off by the time I bought-put them back. Add voltage gauge
