All my life I have dreamed about a convertible. Drove a rental Sebring in1990 and fell in love. I bought a 2008 Sebring 2 1/2 years ago. Loved it every day. I am tall, with a bad neck but am very comfortable on long drives. Minimal leg room in the backseat if the front seats are all the way back. Loved the automatic ignition and automatic top. When the top is up and the trunk separator was folded up...lots of trunk room. A couple cons..., the car would occasionally die when I came to a stop for no reason. Don't accidently pull on the yellow emergency release for the trunk lid or the convertible top might get stuck halfway up or down. It this happens, just manually push the plastic safety lever back in and it works fine. If you are short,the trunk lid might be too high and too heavy to easily close (due to the hydralics). There is no strap or latch or handhold to pull or grip. Last week I was rear ended and hit hard and pushed into another car. The car was totaled but there was no interior damage and I was fine! I am looking for another car and am definately considering another Sebring!
My 98 Sebring convert has died on me countless times. I had to "upgrade" my AAA membership b/c I was using so many service calls for flat tires, dead batteries, dead fuel pump (! at 2am!), etc. But "I can't quit you" because it's such a BLAST to drive around in the summer with my sweet stereo blasting and the breeze blowing back my hair. But buyer beware - don't get addicted as I did. I think Chrysler has fixed some of the problems in later model years, but if it's a late 90s car, beware!
i like the lines of this car...sleek and with top down looks even better...not much room in back seat, but more than bmw,mercedes and i believe more than the solara....handles nicely. the bad...the controls for heat and a/c are verry confusing. still not sure what a few do. radio plays nicely. cloth seats are better than leather i had on my 02 lxi sebring. this car much heavier feeling than the 02 so feels safer...would prefer some kind of a roll bar but none available... all in all a good looking car and just enough room im back seat to fit my grandkids 4 and 6.
