"I've owned it about 2 years now. Overall a fun car in the South. I've rebuilt the front end completely, had replaced the complete braking system and installed new tires and top.Just to have no warning what so ever, to have the motor go out. After researching, it appears that this is common with the 2.7 motor. There is reported cases of this motor lasting only 20,000 miles.The cost to replace is $4,000-$6,0000, on a car that is valued less than $4,000."

Car looks and drives like new.

"A very nice car bought new. Kept in a garage and the paint is perfect and the convertible top has no holes, tears, or fading. Probably the quietest convertible with the top down that I have ever ridden in. After about 10 years, there started being some wind noise over the windshield. This probably could be fixed with new insulation. The upholstery is perfect. I think this was the first year of the new bigger V-6 and the car is fairly peppy. This was my wife's car, and she really loved it."

Great sporty car

"My 2006 Sebring convertible has a most comfortable ride and has been very reliable. Even with 160,000 miles, it still starts right up and still has that spunk when you step on the accelerator. It's a fun drive and when you up the top down, what a sense of freedom! The seats are very comfortable and can be adjusted to fit almost anyone! The stock sound system is pretty good, even with the top down. I live in MA. and we see quite a bit of snow and even though it is just front wheel drive, it gets around quite well with good tires. With 160,000 miles on it, it has needed a few repairs, but, nothing major (just general maintenance). Main thing is to keep your oil changed and general maintenance up on it and it will last you a long time!"

"For a 10 year old vehicle I have enjoyed every mile and looking for many more. There is nothing like traveling down the highway, top down, music blowing, and your best girl next to you, it doesn't get any better than that!"

"Bought this car as a second to a LHS. It has proven to be an excellent car for mountain driving. City driving and parking are also a plus for this size. Economy ranges in the 30+ bracket on regular fuel thru the mountains and open road. Only repair other that brakes and tune up has been a hose connection. Not bad for 150K. I would like to see more headroom and better ease of entry, but for a small car this is what one would expect. Also better air intake, turbo would be nice. The 2.7 tends to loose HP at 12,000 and above, and yes it would be a pipe dream to expect it to run like my turbo diesel."
