Loved it but it was a lemon
By VirginiaD on


2001 Chrysler Sebring LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


My first convertible, and a great one at that. Power top was perfect and never had problems with it working. Replaced top seal when I purchased it ($800), replaced rotors (on all my Chryslers) every 20k miles. Brakes were not strong. Engine began to smoke at about 45k, and mechanics said it was a goner. NOT a good investment. Engine is a bad one (2.7L V6). Loved the car and top down driving and very comfortable, with all the nice options. Peppy to drive and smooth on hwy. Can't recommend because of engines and overall long-term quality issues.

Best Features

Covertible top down. Comfort, great driving position (power seat, tilt, CD chgr/cass combo - Infinity sound system), leather interior, cup holders great!

Worst Features

Chrysler went out of business because they refused to improve quality. Class action law suits existed against Chryselr for the 2.7L V6 clogging up with oil, leaking oil, engines seizing up... These were best looking convertibles ever, with FWD! Oh well, no more.
