Nope, Mark is right. Engine repairs scan cost you thousands. Then add on more costs to fix anything else. Save your money and buy something decent so you can expect a few good years out a vehicle.

please don't buy that car, that particular motor sucks to work on and it is very unreliable, a 2002 Sebring is not worth much running perfect, never mind with problems

That engine is an interference engine and most times when some one wants to dump one cheap it's because the timing belt has jumped time or broke. And when this happens the valves get bent. Major repair job. Specially if you can't do work your self. Run from this one fast.

Not only are all those guys right, each and every one knows what they are talking about, craigslist is the worst listing place possible, so infested with scams it's obscene.

Thanks for all your comments I decided not to make the deal. Its not worth it.
