Pros

It was a fun vacation cruise around town kind of car.

Cons

The a/c

A Convertible To Watch. — Despite all the criticism of Chrysler for its products, I found this car to be totally enjoyable. I owned it 9 years and it cost me no more than average. It was for me, comfortable, easy to drive and fairly good performance with the 6. It had good acceleration for highways and passing. The steering was responsive but then I don't necessarily drive like NASCAR. I got avg, 30-32 on highway. The driver's window had a slight leak in a heavy downpour. since it was a convertible, it had the usual noises and body movement but less than some other convertibles. I think it is one of Chrysler's better looking products. It was sleek and had great proporations. This was a great vacation car since it had a very usable, good size trunk. And we really did load it down on trips. I reached a point where at 100+k miles it was begiining to needs things and I couldn't justify spending that much money (still had original exhaust and timing belt, the roof was going to need to be repaired or replaced, due for breaks, etc.) If there was one thing with which I had a big complaint is the a/c developed problems the last couple of years and became a nuisance.

Pros

True four seater.
Decent styling, maybe a bit large in the trunk.
Tenacious cornering, with very little roll.

Cons

No manual transmission and fully automatic.
A bit softly sprung, though damping is decent.
In 70k miles, multiple disabling issues cropped up; expensive to fix.

Good Convertible For A Family. — The basic design was quite good, with low stance, and good looks. Four wheel disk brakes were effective but tended to get lumpy and need new or returned disks. Anti-sway bars made for flat cornering that was reasonably impressive and relatively free of understeer or torque steer. My chief complaints were lack of control of the automatic transmission, soft ride, and troublesome mechanicals (brakes, transmission, fuel pump, distributor).

Great Convertabile — Nice body lines that were typical of chryslers hey days fully functional,a trim level for everyone base, 2.4 , base two 2.5 v6. The jx, jx silver package, jxi and jxi gold package. Back to the review upon starting the jxi gold its tan or grey interior seem to have lots of leg room and not shoulder to shoulder to the passenger,the six way power seat makes for a comfy ride the lumbar support helps on long drives. Once you drop her in drive and start rolling a stab ofthe gas and you become aware this aint grannies car, great milage as long as you leave your lead foot at home.when buying a jxi. Condition,condition,condition. So you dont end up in a money pit. The short life top is a bummer once the glass pops out tops toast,the cost has dropped alot, I do not endorse the pvc back "glass" fogs in 6 to 10 months.steering crisp and sharp even at high speed,a sway bar and tighter springs would make it a touch more stable in corners,the braking is so so tires really affect this (ie)cheap. Rear adjusters seem to need alot of attention. Visability w top up the side mirrors are a best friend.

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

It's A Convertible And....... — This car lives on its convertible gimmick. Other than being a fairly affordable convertible this little else to add. Oh it's reliable and the maitenance costs are fairly low and it has a nice sound system but besides that its disappointing. The engine lacks power especially throughout the mid and high range of the tachometer. Handling is numb at best with no real road feel transmitted. The car suffers over moderate bumps and in potholes as the convertible top is far from rigid. The automatic transmission is slow with slow downshifts and even later upshifts. Fuel economy, particularily in stop and go driving, is not impressive with little in the way of performance to show for it. Its styling is bland lacking any distinctive trademark or feature. Not a driver's car.

Still running with 250k miles.

Cons

Wide turn radius. Interior noise from doors and windows. Rough handling.

Good Looking Reliable Coupe. — It has lasted me for over 16 years and 250k miles. It's hard to make sharp turns and handles rough. It still looks slick despite its age. Handles great in snow and ice. The way the door closes and windows seal, a lot of wind and sometimes rain slips through the cracks. This also causes a loud ride (keep in mind this car is 16 years old)!

Pros

Road noise is minimal, Handles well, is comfortable to be in and Excellent on gas!!!!

Cons

Automatic transmission makes a noise when switching into Reverse and/or drive (Apparently this is standard on all older Chrysler's)

Excellent — I really don't have any complaints about this car, I bought this car used for $600.00 with no mechanical problems to speak of really, it does have minor cosmetic damage from previous owner and this car still K.B.B (Kelley Blue Book) at 1200 or more in it's condition, the only problem I really have with this car is the leak that places about 2-3 inches of water into the bottom of my car but that is on the mend overall this car is extremely solid and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good reliable car.

Pros

Power & handling. Fuel economy better than average. Convertibles are great WHEN you can use them.

Cons

This car is not the smoothest ride for sure. Because of the tight suspension for handling, it rides rougher than most vehicles.

Overall Very Happy With This Vehicle. — There is mixed opinions by Sebring Owners. Especially the older models. Some people have excellent luck with very few repairs. They all credit Good preventive maintenance. But I bought this1999 Sebring in 2012 and there were no Car Fox maintenance records since 2005. I have always noticed an oil burning smell / small oil spots on driveway. My first two years were great but I hardly drove the vehicle (5000 miles). Since I started driving the vehicle full time 09/2013, it ran great until 01/2014. Since then I have had to replace Valve cover gasket ($500) Ignition switch ($150) and was told I will need to replace Timing belt very soon ($800). I have also done $300 worth of preventive maintenance (Plugs, Plug wires, Battery, Distributor)

1999 Chrysler Sebring Convertable — I LOVED THIS CAR! The day I drove it home it was October in GA. It was about 50 degrees out but I drove it home with the top down. At a stop light, another convertable pulled up next to me - looked at me and shook his head. He rolled down his window and said, 'How long you had your car?' and I let him know I just got it... he laughed and as the light turned green we both drove off laughing... I saw him a few weeks later - this time with colder weather, and my top was up... he noticed me and rolled down the windows and said, 'A little too cold for it to be down today, uh?' it was funny... For a few years we'd see each other in traffic and wave... She recently blew a head gasket and the lower end... she's rolled her last mile. It saddens me to even see another Sebring on the road - I will miss her but... her replacement is on her way and it's supposed to be a beautiful weekend!

A So-so Car — I loved driving it in the Summer time and when it was nice out. I did have to replace and fix so many things on it. I didn't have that many miles on it either. I had to replace the brakes, but that is understandable. I was then told that my engine wasn't bolted in right. It was missing a few bolts. I don't know how it stayed in the car, but it did. When I was driving down the highway, my car shifted into Neutral for some reason. I had an automatic. It ended up costing me nearly what I paid for the damn thing, so I traded it in.

got a great deal on this car and it beats walking.

Cons

makes this strange noise no one can figure out. Brought to the dealership and they couldn't figure it out. My brother-in law had it pulled apart and couldn't figure it out either.

Car Is Great Other Then The Mystery Noise — So far it seems to be a good car. She needs some repairs, new drop top(it leaks like crazy). It gets better gas mileage then I thought it would get. It has great heat, living in MI you really need that.
