I bought my Sebring mostly because of the price. These cars being highly "rental" vehicles, there seems to be lots of them to choose from...and at a very good price. I got the 2.4 motor, which I thought would get better mileage on the hwy, but the city mileage has be very good at around 22mpg. (Hwy at around 27) But, even though these are mainly just basic transportation, at the price the used ones are going for, it's hard to beat the value. Plus having Chryslers in the past, the reliability has been better than years ago. (70's)

great acceleration and fuel economy, plenty of space. Traction control helps to avoid tire spin when accelerating and stopping, great for the snow. overall for a 4 door family car it is a great buy. could use a rear window wiper, hard to keep clear in rain. big trunk, can actually fit a lawnmower in if you collapse the handle down and the fold down rear seats means even more room.

I bought my 2005 Sebring Touring Convertible used in 2006 with 14,000 miles. It has been a very dependable car. I havent had to put ANY money into it except for oil changes & routine maintainence. It is suprisingly fuel efficent with about 28 mpg. This car is styilish, roomy, practical And very affordable. The only problem i have had is the doors pop when you open them from the weight of the heavy door. Other than that the sebring is a great year round car with top down beach appeal.

This review is for a convertible (Limited Trim). I had a 1999 sebring convertible that died with 130K miles. I shopped around for a replacement, and after driving a few other makes, I decided to go with another Sebring. This is the second generation Sebring convertible. I looked at the 3rd gen, which started in 2008. The footspace was too small for my size 14 feet, so I could only consider a 2nd gen. Pros: Buying this car used is a fantastic deal since they drop in value so quickly. Its a convertible! Lots of room (for a convertible). Cons: Headlights. Brakes (although they are better than my 1999). If you are shopping for a convertible and are considering a hard top convertible, pay close attention to the amount of trunk room you have with the top down and the top up.

I've owned 14 Chrsylers so far, and, my latest, an 05 Sebring, has convinced me to switch brands. Mine is a 4 door Signature series with the 2.7 V6, leather, sunroof, and alloy wheels. First the high points - The car is reasonably comfortable on trips, and, gets good fuel economy. Power is adequate, but, nothing special. For the money I paid, it initially appeared to be an excellent value for a daily business driver. The downside - the reliabily of this car has been unacceptable. I've put about 50K on the car so far and have had: coolant leaks, water leaks, a complete transmission failure, and parts of the engine induction system broke. The cars been in the shop a total of 3.5 months since I've owned it. Currently, the replacement transmission sounds like an electric can opener at low speeds, and, I'm wondering if its trying to die again. I'll not buy another one.

The chrysler 4dr Sebring is a smooth ride with good value. With gas prices at its current level of inflation, the 4 cyldr. engine is great with gas mileage. The body design is basic enough for the conservative driver, but stylish enough for the more creative driver to add on to. Overall, I was very satisfied with the purchase of a pre-owned sebring.
