I Love It And Have Had No Issues With It So Far. —

I love this car. Tons of room in it even though it doesn't look like it from the outside. The trunk is surprisingly big for the car, again, compared to its size. My car came with the IGIG radio and I will never buy a car again without it or something similar to it. I have leather seats in mine and they are very comfortable, considering I am a big guy and require room. Handling is great. My fiance loves taking it because she can zoom in and out of parking lots much easier. Highway ride is also excellent and I never find myself having to stop due to being uncomfortable. The only thing I wish is if they put a little better tire on it, but the ones that came with mine were ok. I have leather seats that came heated and they are great. I live in Syracuse,NY and they make a BIG difference in the morning when the car is still a little cold. Driving in the snow has not been as bad as I thought it would be. I used to own a Chrysler Concord and that car was much worse than my sebring because the front end was too low and the snow would get caught under it. The sebring comes with 17" tires and the front end is higher than the concord so getting through deeper snow worked quite well. And my city is the snowiest city in the country folks! Highway mileage per gallon is excellent. I drove 3 hours to Buffalo last month and I averaged over 32MPG per gallon. Not bad considering I had heavy luggage in it. The 4 cylinder engine is peppy, fast and quiet as well and again it really does help on gas if you can go without the 6 cyl punch. Interior layout is great and sharp looking. The glove compartment is annoying because when you open it everything falls out of it due to the angle at which it was built. The car comes with 2 jacks so you can plug in your cellphone or gps etc. One is under the radio and the other is inside the middle console box. I wish they added another due to all the things people are using in their cars today. I never use the one in the console box because I hate running the wire to it. One thing I do miss from my concorde is the change holder. There isn't one on the sebring and I wish they would put that back in the design or add more compartments on the dashboard to put stuff. My only main issue with the sebring is adjusting the seat with the electronic controls. There is no way any normal man can adjust his seat with the side buttons without getting his hand stuck between the seat and the door. You have to adjust your seat before you drive or your pretty much SOL. This was really annoying to me since there are plenty of better places to put the seat controls like the side of the door near the window buttons or in the middle console near the shifter. I don't know who tested this car but if they gave a thumbs up to the seat controls, they need to be fired. Floor mats are ok at best but workable. The drivers side needs to be heavier so it stops getting stuck up under the break and gas pedal. I went to Wmart and bought a new pair for $15 and they are working much better than the factory installed ones. Other than that, its a great car and has lots of features. Price is good between 22-26k depending on how many options you have or what rebate programs were going on. Of course, I still think its too much for any car so I'll always complain about the price no matter what car I buy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Plenty of room, great ride, comfortable, big trunk, good MPG, sharp looking, good in snow.

Cons: glove compartment, seat controls, floor mats, tires

Awesome, But Interior Could Use Some Spicing Up-ordered A Dash Kit — Some reviews complain about the slow start but any edition except the base version remedies this (need at least a 2.7 engine). Love everything about except the interior looks cheap-wish I would have gotten the touring edition with leather. Never owned a car before that drew so many remarks from strangers.... From the bank tellers to my attorney. Constantly notice people checking it out-White with Black Soft/Hard Top

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Beautifully styled, good gas mileage, lots of extras

Cons: cheap looking interior

Wonderful — My first car I have yet to own, Rock solid body, Great Handling, Acceleration kinda odd, Ether Super Slow or ultra fast, 15,000$ it cost me, It has A GPS with Sirius radio and A DVD player. I would recommend this car to anyone.

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

Pros: Fun, fast, GPS

Cons: Back end looks like a boat

If You Can Get One Cheap (we Did) It Might Be Worth It. — Overall, a poorly designed, poorly made car. Already had to replace the radiator. Ergonomics are fair, but surfaces are hard cheap plastic. Do like the flex fuel v6 engine. Reasonable power, and runs on both regular gas and E-85.

Pros: Decent handling car, with comfortable ride.

Cons: Cheap parts and questionable build quality.

Worst Car I've Ever Driven... —

I've driven several cars and for the most part many cars I find are livable even though they might actually be bad cars. I wasn't expecting much from the 2008 Chrysler Sebring hearing that it wasn't impressive. I just wasn't expecting it to be this bad. First things first. To drive, this car is really awful. Starting with that awful 2.7L V6 engine, it was so slow I initially thought it was the 4-cylinder because of the lag and how noisy it was. I was shocked to see the label "V6", I couldn't believe Chrysler charges people more money for the Touring version(which is what I've driven). The transmission is really stupid too, it actually holds the gear even if you hit 6000 rpm. Steering feel is worse than a Buick's, the Caravan drives much better. Handling...just hopeless. On performance this car is 25 years out of date. The interior is full of very cheap looking plastic. There are a few chrome touches but overall its just plain disgusting plastic. I've also never come across such uncomfortable seats, I get back pain from these terrible things. The cheaper Avenger has better seats than this. As for how its assembled...not very well either, some loose bits and unfinished sharp edges on some of the plastics. As I've mentioned in performance this car is so slow, worse you have a V6 to feed so its not very fuel efficient. The electronics on these cars are not reliable, prone to failure and often recalled. At this point who cares what options it has, if they don't work or will break soon then its completely pointless. I was amazed such a car existed...one that does everything pretty badly, this car's sole purpose was to rip people off. If your thinking about buying one...please test something else because I'm certain its going to be better than this POS. I'm certain the old Sebring is better. If you still have buy one...buy an Avenger...save money and get decent seats. If you want to buy American, buy the Malibu because that's superior to this and you'll actually support a good car, not a awful one.

Pros: I don't see any...oh wait...it has drink chilling cup holders

Cons: Everything, advertising forgot it had to sell a car instead of cup holders

Gutless Wonder — It looks ok but obviously the performance was designed for the elderly. Don't expect a lifetime of carefree driving from this pile of plastic. It is an adequite rental car but after you return the rental you will never own one.

Pros: styling

Cons: everything else

Making Cars For The Sake Of It — Gutless, overstressed, heavy, inefficient, ugly, cramped and thoroughly pointless vehicle. The engine struggles to propel this barely-guided missile, after 10,000 miles of rental use it felt like it had been around the clock, and the interior seemed to be made out of the insides and packaging from some cheap trainers. Why on earth does this vehicle exist.

Pros: It was a rental and I could give it back, the A/C worked.

Cons: It's possibly the most disappointing car I've ever driven.
