2005 Chrysler Sebring

The Chrysler Sebring sees only a few minor changes for 2005.  The Limited sedan now comes standard with automatic climate control and automatic on/off headlights.  A navigation system is added to the options roster.  In 2005, Chrysler unveiled a limited edition Signature Series finish, which was available on several models.  These cars were a special commemoration of Chrysler's heritage, and offered many luxury and appearance upgrades at no additional charge.  There were three Sebring Signature Series models: Convertible, Sedan and Touring Sedan.

With the addition of the Signature series, the Sebring lineup grew to thirteen models.  The LX style was discontinued this year, but a new top shelf sedan, called the TSi, was added.  The convertible trims included Base, GTC, Limited, Touring and Signature Series.  The coupe was available in Base and Limited.  There were six sedan variations: Base, Limited, Signature Series, Touring, Touring Signature Series, and TSi.

The same three power plant options returned for 2005.  The base models for all three body styles and the Signature series sedan were powered by the 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine.  The inline four supplied 150 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque. A manual transmission can only be paired with this engine on the coupe. Fuel economy is 22/30 mpg for the automatic and 24/32 mpg for the manual.

A 3.0 liter V-6 is exclusively available with the Limited Coupe. The most potent engine in the Sebring lineup, this V-6 provided 200 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque.

All other models house the 2.7 liter V-6, which generates 200 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque.  Fuel economy for Sebrings with this engine was 21/28 mpg.  All models were front wheel drive.

Driving impressions were largely dependent on the body style and power plant.  Many reviewers agreed that the TSi sedan Sedan Limited Coupe offered the best driving experience, but all coupes and sedans  provided a stable ride and nimble handling.  The convertibles were different.  Many drivers reported that the convertible could not hold the road like the other body styles, and body roll through tight turns was quite noticeable.  

The top complaint is poor build quality, across the board.  Driver jeers include excessive vibrations and rattles, an unrefined transmission, uncomfortable seating, low quality interior materials and very poor Chrysler dealer service.
