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 On performance this car is 25 years out of date.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.

Very Refined And Finally A Decent Engine And Transmission — I had a 2005 Sebring Convertible Touring and it was underpowered so I looked for a 2008 soft top Limited model (I am a purist and do not like the hard top). Once I found and bought the car, I could not believer that it was a Sebring. It looks great, has a quick 3.5 liter engine and an amazing 6 speed automatic. Also thrown was electronic stability control and positraction so that all of it together yielded an awesome car for the money. It is a true boulevard car that now holds the road and is fast. It is not a Bimmer, so those who want one would be disappointed. All in all for about $36,000, I got a sensational car with all of the bells and whistles and one that can get out of its way too. I love the soft top as it folds like the hard top. With the top up , the trunk is enormous.

Owner for 0 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:10,000

Pros: 3.5 liter engine is powerful, 6 speed automatic is state of the art

Cons: plastic inside, leather not soft and subtle, seats a little hard, doors and trunk very hard to close

Sebring Limited — Great clean aspect to rag top when it stores in trunk. Unfortunately, that feature limits cargo storage space. Trunk lid is a little high preventing clear vision when backing up. Battery compartment requires removal of front left tire .. a little inconvenient.

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

Pros: Great acceleration

Cons: Cargo space

Now That You've Read This, Realize You've Made The Right Choice... —

I've written a few reviews here and there regarding my 2008 Sebring Touring convertible and once again I gotta' back her up... This car is GREAT!... It seems that some of the reviews I read are based on someone jumping out of a V12 Lambo' then raggin' on the acceleration of the Sebring... Stumbling out of the rear of a Maybach then complaining about the "plasticky" interior, then challenging her handeling after winding through the mountains in a M3 5 Series stressing how unpredictible and aloof the Sebring is... Well, once again I call BS on all of ya! Look, this is a well built, smooth sailing, adequately equipped convertible cruiser. She is what she is and makin' her something she's not just aint' fair to the lady. The 4 banger may be a bit "sluggish" but if all your looking for is a nice cruiser to sled around town in while having enough money in your pocket for a bite once you get to where you're going, it'll do you just fine. The Touring has plenty of power for me and I'm never "left behind" from the start... I'm 5'8 / 150lbs and it's comfy as could be. The engine prrrrrs and it has a real nice growl when you hit the accelerator to pass up, how do you say... "Lesser" of vehicles that may cross your path. The sound system rocks and one cool little tid-bit, with the 1/8 jack built into the stereo and an adapter my Strat sounds pretty neat out of her too. Passengers I've had in the back had nothing but kind words regarding the comfort and smooth ride. Gas mileage is adequate but I'm a bit of a lead foot. I can't really say enough nice thngs about her... Favorite thing to do is stand about 40 feet away and drop the top with the key fob when there's a nice lil' crowd around... A kid once marvelled that he just witnessed a live "Transformer"! Now in this world, as with anything NOTHING is perfect. When the car's wet and you open the door you get a bit wet as well. Water leaks from the top of the door when open. Chrysler should have corrected this before production. Also, the top leaks in the rear corners a bit. Not enough to hurt anything though and it really no longer bothers me. When I wash her I put a paper towell in the corner. When done, I remove it and all is well. It hasn't rained hard enough (I think) for me to tell if the winter's gonna be a problem... Still, nothing a car cover can't cure I'm sure and it hasn't changed my thoughts on her one bit. (I haven't driven the Limited so I can't comment on the difference... NOTE to the negative reviewers: If you don't know, don't make crap up... There's some negative coments on this ride that just aren't true...) The Sebring handles its own without appoligies... I've gotten many compliments on previous cars I've owned and it's a good feeling to get em' just as much if not more in my Sebring. Chrysler's past was that of luxury rides always striving to push the envelope a bit more each year... The current situation is what it is and shouldn't defer you away from this car. There are incredible deals that I see out there and strongly suggest you jump on one. Besides Chrysler's current financial standing, another factor that sinks this Baby is the fact that the majority of the LX and Touring's were sold to rental car company's... Still, it's not enough to put 'em down like they're the plague of the convertible automotive underworld. The car's a blast to drive and I look forward to getting into her & dropping that top every chance I get... I haven't a doubt in my mind that I'm currently driving a piece of automotive art and this car like many, many, Chrysler's before her will be held in high regard to the true collector's for years to come. If your looking for one I wish you luck, if you own one congraduations, and if you don't like em' that's alright by me too... I wouldn't feel so regal if every Tom, Dick, n' Harry on my street was in love with the same girl... The Chrysler Sebring was named after Sebring, Florida, the site of the renowned endurance car race called the 12 Hours of Sebring. There, now she's gotta' bit of race car in her... Happy? UPDATE: 05/21/12 - Over 2 years and she's still treating me well and receiving compliments daily... Atta' girl!!

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

Pros: Stylish, comfortable, nicely equipped, fun to drive, and it's a drop top!

Cons: Water leaks in when doors are open when car is wet...
