Nice Style, Good Handling And Fun To Drive — I like the car to drive around for fun and on short trips. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 2nd or 3rd vehicle just to drive to the store, go on short trips where luggage or storage capacity is a non-issue.

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

Still running with 250k miles.

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

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)

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.

Good Looker For Everyday Commuting. — Well my 99 ended up being the 3rd car. So now its a nice weather, top down vehicle or an emergency vehicle for friends in need. Buying my Nitro in 2008 the dealer offered me $950 for it, I had just put $500 in tires on it a month earlier so that was a no brainer. For being 12-13 years old this model Sebring still has nice lines in todays market . I have had my share of minor repairs on this car but being handy with tools, there hasn't been any jobs I couldnt conquer in a couple hours. The 2.5l does have a poor design of having to remove the intake manifold to change the hidden spark plugs. Note: Change the coil wires while you have the manifold off. I also have changed the crank sensor, Egr valve and have had to hand stitch some of the seams on the fabric top. Seems since there isn't a flaw in the fabric they could have used a stronger thread. Oh well, no sense in a $500 dollar top, bought a heavy duty needle and some gortex thread from Joann fabrics and it's perfect. With 115,000 miles on it it's just as much fun to drive now as it was the day we pulled out of the lot.

Love It!! — Some people don't like the looks of the car, but I guess I'm the only one that matters. I love the looks of it, and it drives great! The gas mileage is very good for a car of that size.

Just A Nice 99 Sebring. — This car is just fun to drive. It handles good for me, sit comfortable. It's got style and the kids like it alot. It's not hard to mod things on it as long as you have patient with it. Gas mileage isn't bad but it's cheaper then driving my blazer. I wish it had a sunroof or a targa top but it's fine the way it is.

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.
