    Great Car With A Great Value — Its one of the best cars I ever owned. Looks like it could be a newer car cause the styling is beautiful but some minor problems make it a hassle. Interior is comfortable & space is abundant. The 5 Speed manual makes it a blast to drive but its not as fast due to its heavy weight.

    Pros: Looks, Styling

    Cons: Transmission Whoa's

    Chrysler Sebring Jx — First off, i'm ashamed i've owned it, it's a chicks car. Additionally, it's terribly underpowered with its 2.5 V6, noisy and kind of plasticy. The trunks aren't very well sealed and the tops tend to leak. Also, transmission issues may occur past 100k miles. I can only recommend this car to a pretty girl (ugly ones shouldn't drive convertibles) who wno't mind never being able to nicely back up since the rear view is quite restricted due to wide c-pillars.

    Pros: n/a

    Cons: n/a

    Crummy — acceleration good, idols hard, steering squeeks, odometer doesnt work, not bad on gas, doors pop, windows jam, does not want to stay running, transmition leaks, uses oil like nothing else.

    Pros: nice in summer

    Cons: to many

    Not To Shabby — A tad unreliable and sometimes hard to work on, even for simple things like changing the spark plugs and wires. This car can get expensive real fast if you get one in bad shape. However, it does have nice styling and good power for a car of this price range. Lets not forget to mention a comfortable interior, even being a little cramped for a average 6' guy. Lots of room in the back seat for knees, but not necessarily elbows being only a two seater in the back. All in all not a bad car, I've enjoyed owning one. Just be careful if you buy one.

    Pros: low to the ground = nice handling at higher speeds without feeling like my car is gonna fall over

    Cons:   low to the ground :-) its rather often that i bottom out EX: driving over a speed bump at over 5 mph not a good idea.

    Good For Atob... But Other Than That... Meh.. — I owned this car for about a year just to get to and from work and it was fine for that, good leg room, which is important cuz im really tall, but on road trip i was really uncomfortable.. The lights flickered all the time, the electric components would get all jumbled up.. This is good for like a first car for a 16 year old..

    Owner for 1 years, 3 months

    Miles Driven per Year:15,000

    Pros: legroom, gas mileage, convertible

    Cons: electric working, warmth during winter

    Good Gas Mileage, Looks Great, And It's A Convertible! — It was my parents' (haha, yeah), but they're signing the title over to me. It's easy on gas, but I drive all the time, so it evens out.

    Pros: Handles really well, good gas mileage, pretty, reliable

    Cons: It's filled with cigarette remnants because my dad's a smoker.

    It Was Good When It Worked — This was my first car, I loved it when it worked. I took very great care of it; oil changes every 3000, regular maintenance, ect. However, this car was terrible. So many engine problems, even with relatively low mileage. It had a 2.5L V6, and I never knew when it was going to overheat, die unexpectedly while it was rolling, ect. One day it overheated in the middle of a traffic jam, so I pulled over as fast as I could and let it cool down. Got it fixed, didn't think anything of it. Couple months later it kept on dying on me at like 25mph (pretty dangerous when you lose power steering and brakes). Turns out the cylinder heads were warped and the engine block was cracked just from that one minor occurrence of overheating. I also had a lot of work done to it before that. Absolute money pit, do not buy this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice summer car, easy to use drop top, very fun

    Cons: maintenance, lots of engine problems
