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!

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

It Is Beautiful And A Pleasure To Just Go For A Drive In But Its Bulit Quality Is Simply Too Poor — It is a beautiful car and can be found for a relativly cheap price, Black with black top and gold trim the likes of it I have yet to see on any car in its price range. The rims and gold trim were beautiful and went well with the black paint and they were suprisghnly classy and not too ostanticous as the rims had more of a tint as they looked like Billets with a bit of bronz brushed into them and the lettering was not shiny gold. Mechanicly it is not very sound as it is constantly in the shop, the top does not leak but is poorly designed as the water is chaneled into compartments in the side which have a tendincy to not drain corectly and to overflow and pour water into the car, we have at times had a foot of standing water in the rear from this problem. The computer syestems are also not all that great and in terms of handling it handles like the boat that it is but gets awful fuel econmy at around 10-15mpg city although ours is problem plagued I have herd of these cars going up to 200+ thousand miles but i think they are generaly a hit or miss. The car is the ultimate cruser though and the times to be had just droping the top and leting the music blaire throguh the stock infinity sound system, one of the best i have ever herd as the bass shook upstairs windows of houses we passed and thumped the music right to our hearts. some of the best cruses i have ever had have been in this car and although mechanicly not that sound it has gained a place in my heat

Great Affordable Fun Car. — The Sebring is fun to drive, and is the ultimate tanning machine, if your into that of course. The body style of the 1998 is sleeker, and more sporty than the newer models. Its an eye cactcher just being Stock, so after the Custom exterior paint is applied, people will stare instead of just look.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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

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.
