"I purchased this 2004 Sebring Ltd convt.from orig. owner with 107,000 mi in 2012 and have put another 8,000 on it. I was looking for a convertible with good leg room in the back seat and large trunk and front wheel drive. The only thing the org. owner replaced on the car were the tires. I couldn't believe it...orig. brakes, batt., belts etc. He serviced the car regularly and took very good care of it. The car has a 2.7 V6 that gets 30mpg on highway and in the 20's in town. The oil looks like from a new engine. This car fit the bill and has been a delight to drive over the past 8 months...love it."
Pros: "Fun to drive, reliable. Surprisingly quick for 3.0"
Cons: "Very little leg room in the back."

"Bought this car new, 9-15-00. It was made in Normal, Illinois at the Mitsubishi plant on the same production line as the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The Sebring LXi Coupe has the same chassis and drive train as the 2001 Eclipse GT. In the 13.5 years that I have had this car, I have only had to replace 1 fuel injector and clean the air idle valve and throttle plate once. Replaced 3 driving light bulbs, one brake light bulb and 2 head light bulbs. Other than the fuel injector it has been extremely reliable. The gas mileage is the same as when it was new. 18 to 21 city, 25 to 29 highway. It has seen only 5w30 full synthetic oil and changed every 4500 miles."
"Bought my 2001 Sebring LX in 2008 w/20k miles from an estate sale, have put 65k miles on it since with minimal issues. LX is the base model, but it has enough features to be comfortable, but not luxurious. One of few 4 passenger convertible with a relativley usable back seat as well. I adore the car when the sun is out & the top is down, but must admit it's a lot less fun when the top is up as it rattles & creaks over any rough surface. It's very peppy for a small (2.7L) V-6, gets a decent 25 mpg average, handles well due to the low center of gravity, and has never left me stranded. Would love to drive her into the ground for a few more years, but in need of a four door for work & will be selling her soon (sadly)."
Pros: "seemed good for the price but not with this continued problem"
Cons: "car leaks on passenger side"

"I purchased this car in March, 2010. Drove and rode really nice then. Over the summer I noticed that every time it would rain the passenger side floor would be damp. Until one day I was driving in a downpour and ended up with puddles on the passenger side floor. I proceeded to take the car to a dealership who said the main seal on the passenger side needed replaced, $400.00 later it seemed ok. Until this summer I again noticed the passenger side floor getting wet again....back to the dealership and after 3 days they determined it was the seal around the front passenger door, another $300.00 later it seemed ok. They assured me they ran water over the car for hours and no leaks.... drove in the rain last night and guess what???? Passenger side floor is wet again!!! The dealership will be getting a call on Tuesday."
Pros: "fun to drive, turns heads, girls love it, nice mpg"
Cons: "breaks down a lot, no full size spare"

"I have had mine six months, and it has junked a new battery, needed an alternator, needed a starter, and bent a rod. I love this car, I really do, but don't buy one. She is a money pit like no other car I have ever owned. I don't wear her out. I keep her slow and baby her, but she keeps letting me down. Very fun to drive. It's a very smooth ride, handles well, and the interior is nice. It's fun to let the top down and take it for a spin when the sun is out, but it's not worth the headaches. Also last but not least, if you do have anything major go wrong with the car, it is such a pain to work on a lot of mechanic shops won't even touch it. I had 4 turn me down when I needed the rod fixed. I ended up finding a guy that would do it in exchange for handyman services. All in all, they are wonderful somewhat sporty, somewhat luxurious, and still economic cars, but you might as well take the couple grand you would put into this (and quite possible the couple more you would put into repairing it in the near future) and buy something else. I know I would if I could."
