"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: "fun to drive, reliable, 25-30 MPG on the highway"
Cons: "interior lighting, bk seat space, a/c leaks inside"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I bought the car I really wanted when I bought my Sebring convertible. It's a nice looking car, cool to drive, and there was room in the back seat for my kids. I love the body style, the leather and wood appointments, the cloth top, how solid it is, and, of course, the feeling of freedom and joy while driving with the top down. I've always been faithful with maintenance and oil changes. I know it's hard to find an article about Sebrings with a favorable review, but I've had a very different experience. I've been good to my Sebring, and it's been good to me."
"I loved this car for the first two years, then all of a sudden it was in the shop a couple times a month. I spent over $2000 repairing different things the 3rd year and I was only at 55,000 miles. I was suppose to get another 20,000 miles out of the things that broke. One morning in my 4th
Year of owning it I was trying to get to work when it wouldn't start. Wanted to but didn't. Inconveniently towed it and 2 days later was told there was nothing wrong with it. That was 4 months ago and it hasn't happened since, but how does thy make sense? It just didn't feel like starting?
This car has caused me so much stress and aggravation. If you want this car don't buy it unless you're only keeping it for a few yrs."
