    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...

    Compare Price And Features To A Malibu Or Camry And Set Aside Your Prejudice And You Will Buy One. — The Sebring has a smooth ride, looks great, and thus far has been without defect. I think that there is a prejudice among auto writes against the Chrysler name plate, but if they can continue to produce fine vehicles they can overcome it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: People will comment on what a nice looking vehicle it is.  Then you can be amused by thier expression when you tell them.

    Cons: Hmmm, so far after 8 mo. nothing.

    says:
    Because it is a convertible that gets great gas mileage, and has a roomy cabin, while maintaining copious cargo capacity (when the top is up) for frequent jaunts to the water's edge. It is a good-looking car (good for the ego), as well as being extremely comfortable for extended driving (good for the physical being).
