2003 Chrysler Sebring Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 14 reviews
The Chrysler Sebring lineup underwent several changes for 2003. New features were added to both the sedan and convertible, and the coupe received a complete face lift. Changes on the coupe include a new hood shape, side moldings, rear fascia, and new designs for the head, tail, and fog lamps. Inside the coupe, the center console has been rethought, along with the instrument cluster and dash layout.
The same trim levels return for both the coupe and convertible, but the LX Plus style is no longer offered with the sedan. The convertible trims include the base LX, the sporty GTC, the luxurious LXi, and the even more upscale Limited. The coupe and sedan are both offered with two choices: LX or LXi.
There were no engine changes for 2003. The 2.4 liter inline four powers the LX Coupe, LX Sedan, and LX Convertible. This engine generates 150 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque. On the LX Coupe, a slightly less powerful version delivers 147 horsepower, up from last year's 142. Again, the LXi Coupe is the sole recipient of the 3.0 liter V-6, which generates 200 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque. The LXi Convertible, Limited Convertible, and LXi sedan are powered by the 2.7 liter V-6, receiving 200 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. The GTC Convertible and LXi Coupe are both available with a five-speed manual transmission. All other models use a four-speed automatic. Sebring fuel efficiency actually varies little with the engine size: city driving mpg is estimated in the low 20s and highway cruising in the high 20s.
Many Sebring owners were very satisfied with the standard amenities on the upper level trims. Reviewers also point out that even the base LX models are well-equipped with several important convenience features. Drivers have expressed appreciation for Chrysler's attention to detail on the creature comforts, like the premium audio system. The redesigned Sebring Coupe also attracted many new buyers.
Many consumers commented that Chrysler should have included more standard safety features, like ABS and side airbags. Build quality complaints seem a bit scarce here, compared to other Chrysler models, but transmission failure and excessive interior wear have both been cited as problems.
