This is my first used car. It was a rental car with about 37,000 miles on it. I love the way it looks and I really love convertibles in general so I'm happy to have it and will keep it a couple of years at least. The back seat is roomy for a two-door convertible. The top is easy to put down and it doesn't leak when it is up. There have been some drawbacks, however. The main one is that the top takes up most of the trunk when it is down. There is only a small space between the carrier for the top and the back of the car. We often carry golf clubs and luggage so if we have the top down, we have to put these in the back seat. We also have to get out and unfold the carrier before the top can be put down if we have had the trunk full. The second drawback is that there isn't as much pickup from a stop or slower speeds as my previous Altima. I have had to adjust my driving to not pull out at an intersection unless another car on the road is far away. The third is there isn't as much storage space as my Altima. I carry sunglasses, a GPS, pens and paper, CD's, etc. and am having to cut down on how much I have with me in the car. All of these are minor adjustments and I really like my car. I can't wait until spring when I can have the top down and drive around in style.
I purchased my car on 11/22/2010. With-in a week of owning the car the brake light began to go off everytime I drove on an incline. Then a week ago the change oil light went off. According to the maintenance sticker I shoudn't have to change the oil until I reach 41,000 and the car currently has 39,900 miled on it. So with-in less than 2 months, I have to get the brake light fixed and have the oil changed. Kinda not great.
We purchased our 2009 Sebring on 06/18/2010 and love it. I do wish that it had a little more pick up, but for a 4 cylinder you cant beat. The value is great, the fuel milage is even better. I would truely suggest buying one if your on a tight budget and looking for a great family car.
