A Rare Bird Indeed
acclaimed,12/26/2014
I purchased my 2004 Chrysler Sebring (base) 2.7L V6 in September and the second day after the purchase I noticed an oil leak that my car had, we fixed it with ease. The seller dropped the price down to $1,000 because I had cash money, but the air condition didn't work on the first day of purchase, but all it need is an A/C compressor and recently my my check engine light illuminated because of my ignition coil that I replaced and bought some new spark plugs. However, sometime when I drive it hard the engine light illuminate because of the ignition coil that I purchased that triggered the engine light the first time.
Original owner, and family car with low mileage.

Where it was manufactured, and that some parts will require metric tools. This model does hold up well in Northern environments and handle well in snow with appropriate tires, great A/C and heater. Mileage is above average for model and year, does not require no-lead gasoline, or special formula, if driven in Northern environment where salt is used on roads. You should look for signs of rust in rear wheel area, behind fender, undercarriage and frame holds up well, so does the 2.7 engine if properly maintained. Do not listen to complaints on this engine, however make sure you do check for any major repair work, I did have to replace the complete power steering unit, include the front right wheel assembly due to poor manufacturing. It is one of the reasons that I do ask you to check and make sure that the Sebring was made in America, and not Canada because of metric bolts...etc. I still have this car today after fourteen years, with sixty-seven thousands original miles, just replaced the rear struts last year 2016. Now experiencing the oil indicator warning light on, and staying on after warming up, heating indicator showing ok temperature, no leaks, and oil level is ok. Could be pump, however at this stage and year would not prefer to spend that amount of money for a pump, or repairs, guess will drive until tires fall off. I would not purchase this car new, is I had a chance, way too many issues from date of purchase, I even tried to pursue the lemon law in Michigan within the first two years. No one would listen...got me a brand new Buick 2014 now.
Worst car I have ever owned, even with reg. maintenance

This car is a piece of trash. I hate this car so much I will never own another Chrysler or Dodge product, ever. Engine failure at 140000, replaced ball joints and wheel bearings at least 5 times that I can remember in the front, oil sending unit went bad, blower motor resistor went bad, cig lighter wires broke off inside console, sudden surges at red lights and stop signs, sudden stalls at red lights and stop signs. I literally had every single problem people have written about this car. I went to the dealer to look at a used Civic which they sold before we got there, and sales guy got my wife to fall in love with this car. Worst regret ever that I caved.
loven it

Very fast for a 4 door. Great on fuel if you keep your foot out of the pedal. price to fun ratio is high as well.
