Great Car And Not Expensive To Keep Running — All in all this car is a great first car, and this car isn't a project car, i currently drive it back and forth to school and i don't have problems at all, i changed the oil every 3500 miles so its well maintained

I Like It A Lot, It's My Car And It's Good Looking And Powerful — Its very pretty, It sounds nice for a stock engine. Pretty powerful for stock as well. Smooth ride, Turn ratio is not that great, actually more like a boat really but it gets you from point a to b. All in all it is a good car

You Can Dis It Cuz Its A Chrysler, But You Gotta Love It — Love that its a convertible. Just had the interior refurbished and the top replaced due to me accidentally breaking the rear windshield. Gulps gas with the top down, but way worth the enjoyment you get out of it. You can put down chrysler products, but honestly this is probobly the best car ive ever owned

1998 Chrysler Sebring Convt. — My baby is awesome. It has been wonderful to me since I first got my license! She has needed a new ignition...my bad...too many keys. There is nothing like driving a drop top and letting the wind blow through your hair and having the system cranked up. It is silver with black leather interior and is a sweet ride. Everyone looks at you and all your friends want a ride. The gas mileage is ok and it is a V6. She just needs to be maintained well...just like all cars

Sebring Jxi — Handles like its on rails, pretty quick. This car is awesome in the summer. I can put the top down baby, and I have a pretty loud system (bump in the trunk). Gets about 20 miles to the gallon. The only downfall is the dear dent in the driver side fender.

I Loved This Car. — I miss it. I would drive it now if I could. It was passed down to me and It only has 130,000 miles on it. I love convertibles and because it was my first car, those are the only cars I will ever drive now!

Add Front Bumper Skin & It's Great — I Love the mileage & Power from this little 2.4 V6 power plant. Put the top down & go Cruising. Plenty trunk space for all your camping gear. Maintenance cost is very low change the oil every 3000 mi coolant every 3 years Battery Brakes belts inside & out recently done. This car has a Lot of Pep Stops perfect even in a Panic stop, the ABS Really saves lives And with the performance tires you Can't hardly get them to slip even in wet weather. Front wheel drive Plows through snow like it isn't there.

Best Look Piece I've Ever Owned — Unless you want your car to spend more time in the garage than on the highway then I would not recommend this car to anyone. These cars have a history of brake, distributor, crank sensor, ball joint, Egr valve, and transmission problems....of course, cause its a chrysler. Well I bought this car last fall for $1,500 after I hit a deer with my stratus. It looked like a sharp car and the the body and interior where in excellent condition and to top it off it only had 115K, which i would later learn is way tooooo much for a chrysler to handle. Even since I bought this car I having been working on it. The worse part about it is when its having an issue it either doesnt give me an error code or some lame code like "multiple cylinder misfire" which could be just about anything. One morning I went to start it up and it was acting like it was out of gas and would not turn over...even though it had a full tank of gas. It turned out to be a bad relay on the firewall thats not even listed or shown in my Chilton or Hanes books. Then I got the infamous "multiple cylinder misfire" and swapped out everything in the ignition system (plugs wires, "by the way you have to take off the upper intake to get at the back three plugs/wires and alternator" distributor, and even the PCM "Powertrain Control Module..aka the computer" and nothing fixed the problem. So I took it into the shop and they had to keep it overnight and it turned out to be a sticking Egr Valve. So my advice is to not only stay away from this car but all chrysler vehicles in general. I can see why they went bankrupt and Ford didnt even after gettin all that bailout money.
