We bought our used 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi in 2004 at a dealership. For the first 2 years it was a great vehicle to drive. Now nearing the end of our third year with it it's falling apart. The entire car shakes on any road surface that's not newly paved. Everything (doors, windows, mirrors, etc) rattles. On cobblestone streets you can visually see the windshield shaking from side to side along with the car body. Going over anything more than a minor bump in the road feels like the car is going to fall apart around you. I should point out that we've never taken the car off-road or on anything worse than cobblestone streets. In addition to the body/chassis problems, the driver side window now only goes down about 6 inches then stops and the passenger side window stops going down about 6 inches from the bottom. The center console lid has totally separated at the hinges and the original screws no longer secure it. I had to put in larger screws I happened to have in my toolbox to secure the lid in place. The passenger side visor clip is broken and the covertible roof is fraying on the edges. The only thing still good about this car is the engine performance. But with the fear-inducing rattles and shakes we dare not exercise the engine to experience the performance. We are now shopping for a different convertible, perhaps a Toyota Camry Solara which I hear is an excellent ragtop with none of the issues the Sebring has. I will never, ever buy another Sebring nor recommend it to anyone.
I bought a used 2009 Sebring base model with the 4 cylinder engine for my wife. The car is quite comfortable for her (5' 7") and is ok for me (6'1"). The telescoping steering wheel makes driving easier for me since I have the seat pushed pretty far back. The down side is that the seat is far enough back for driving but the door column is forward enough that it gets in the way of getting in and out of the car. Additionally, the seat is mounted on a platform that get's in the way of my left foot if I try to move it back toward the seat while driving. It's not a big deal but I thought I'd mention it in case you're tall and considering this car. The 4 cylinder engine is fine for most driving but it doesn't have what it needs to "get up and go" when you need a quick start. Some of the interior components seem a bit cheap but they look OK and we bought the base model for practical purposes so I accept that we won't be riding in luxury. All in all we're happy with the purchase. I'd recommend looking at the Limited or Touring editions for better interior appointments and seriously consider the 6 cylinder engine.
I bought the base model Sebring convertible with a four-cylinder engine. It was the only one on the lot that day and it was love a first site. If you can get one, I think the six cylinders might be worth the wait, but for my purpose, the four is fine. Anyway, when I'm cruising the country roads with the top down, I don't even think about the engine! Beautiful car with the top up or down, it�s a lot of fun for the money. Get one!
