2000 Chrysler Sebring Overview

The 2000 model year brought the sixth and final offering of the first generation Chrysler Sebring. In 2001 the model would be completely overhauled, and Chrysler would unveil a new Sebring sedan. For 2000, the name was only applied to a coupe and a convertible. Both versions served as replacements for the discontinued LeBaron, providing some continuity for Chrysler in the mid-size market.

There were five Sebring variations between the two body styles: three convertibles and two coupes. The convertible was offered in JX, JXi, and styles, while the coupes were badged with either the LX or LXi name. All models came standard with fog lamps, full power accessories, cruise control and air conditioning. The i trims added more standard features, and the Limited convertible was the most upscale Sebring variant.

The Sebring was powered by a 2.5 liter V-6 engine, which generated 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque of the J models. The LX and LXi are rated at 163 horsepower. The engine was teamed with a four-speed automatic transmission, routing power to the front wheels on all models. Sebring fuel economy was rated at 19/27 mpg, and drivers reported mixed driving averages in the low 20s with either body style. The Sebring sped from 0 to 60 mph in between 9 and ten seconds, and braked back to a stop in 140 feet.

Like many Chrysler models, build quality has been a very common consumer issue. Owners have reported leaky roofs with the convertible, fuel pump failure, poor brakes, and electrical problems. While many issues are minor annoyances, owners are most troubled by their frequency. Favorite features include the sound system, exterior styling, and the car's solid and controlled feel on the road.
