    A Cruiser At The Most — The only thing I dislike about this car is how small the engine is for it so much more to be desired from it. Comfort is amazing even after sitting 10 years in my garage. Needs a bigger engine for it to be better.

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

    Pros: Big car lots of space for a convertible

    Cons: engine is not powerful enough 2.5v6 not enough to get her moving

    Its Ok — I would not have bought the car but my mother did when it was brand new and it is very nice styling looks better then the newer models actually looks better as a coupe. It has been good so far but spent most of its life in a garage so naturally it has been good but have used it more frequently and now it is a maintenance nightmare no room to work on it and it is just a rotten designed car for the backyard mechanic I have 9 other cars and this one is horrible to work on even worse then my 85 corvette

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is quick still looks good has good handling

    Cons: it has reached 80,000 miles and it has poroblems battery starting chrysler is horrible for recall work

    Great For A First Car — I'm pretty rough on cars, but my Sebring has held up the longest! I've had it a little over a year now and tires have been my main issue. Then again, I'm rough on cars AND cheap so I go though a lot of used tires. The top has become a problem for me however, it leaks dirt, wind, rain, and snow especially with a missing back window. To get the top replaced would be half the price I paid for it. Yeah...I'll just go without. Besides, I think it adds character :)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love the rag top and the handling!

    Cons: Little stupid problems with the thermometer and such associated.

    Conversation Piece — Hard to judge. 43k actual miles. Abs module replaced 10/2010. The last oem available? The dealer suggested to drive more. Duh. The oem module ran 750 installed. Apparently the warranty expired. A nice conversation piece. Not a 641/2 mustang. Oh well Lee. Might put my niece thru college in 20 years.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Head turner+

    Cons: Head turner

    1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertable 2dr Jxi... Nice. — Acceleration- Great, Quality- Dose not stand well being hit by a Volkswagen Jetta, Appearance- Sporty yet big and comfortable, Gas Mileage- okay, Maintenance- the soft top at this age tends to start to fall apart, Fun Factor- real fun for summer months, not so great in winter.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, roomy, and somewhat fast.

    Cons: If you tend to hit things, DO NOT DRIVE THIS CAR! Cup holders suck.

    Buy A 95-00 Sebring Coupe Lx It Wont Let U Down Just Treat It Right! — I loved my 96 Sebring, Reliable as hell got me were i needed to go just needed a tranny rebuild and it would have gone another 150,000 miles no problem i would love to have another one. the mitsubishi v6 is a die hard engine will always like a kitten on the coldest days.

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

    Pros: It was my car i loved it alot very fun car an reliable!

    Cons: Transmissions are not the best even after rebuild. they go every 130k

    Buy It Cheap — It was my first convertible, it was fast, and it had room and style. But it was heavy, and had really bad electrical problems. It was overpriced when it was new. But you can get them cheap. I would buy another if I was going to rebuild it from the ground up.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: smooth ride, and you look good in it for the price

    Cons: money pit

    Its My First Car So Ima Drive It Till I Hit Collage — Performance - the acceleration is decent, the brakes aint very good, but it handles like a sports car. Build Quality - i finally got the limiter out, but once it breaks 95mph it shakes. and the breaks squeak after a long period of not driving it. Appearance - its a smooth red convertible... Cost of Ownership - great gas mileage, nothing broken yet... Fun Factor - if you know how to make the most of it, its a fun car to drive

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

    Pros: girls like it

    Cons: its a girls car

    Fun Car — I love everything !The only minor problems are road noise(on interstate) and hard to go thru a drive thru in the rain due to no drip rails(soft top convert.) Hoping to trade for a hard top Sebring Convertible which will solve the road noise issue and rain problem. Its the most fun car ever. Regardless of my next vehicle I will never trade in my Sebring.

    Pros: Never had a problem at all and its 12 yrs old. Still looks and drives like new!

    Cons: Road noise and no drip rails!

    96 Jxi — I like this car purely because the top comes off and I think overall its a pretty decent looking car. Its low on power, but other then that its an average FWD car. Goes well in the snow, handles ok, its just slow. Its held up well as only now it needs a top after 12 years.

    Pros: The top comes off...

    Cons: Low on power, only available in an automatic

    Great Choice For Me. But Only If You Get The Limited Model. By migration_rchiare1
