Chrysler Sebring Reviews
I have a 2004 Sebring Limited. The engine went at 103,000 miles (head gaskets blew). Battery went 2 weeks ago (not complaining) Tie rod replaced last week. Starter failed today - had to call a tow truck to tow from office to the shop. Another 468.00 out of pocket...
This was my second Sebring - the first was JXI. I will NEVER EVER buy another.
Got a 2000 Sebring convertible with 114k on it 4 years ago. It now has 176k and running strong. I love the interior, the exterior and the way it handles. It drives like a true sports car. Theres a few people that said the car was going to be problematic, but none yet as its approaching 180 thousand miles. I use only synthetic motor oil as thats what the factory said to use in these cars. And they claim that most problems are from those that do not use synthetic or even change their oil on time, much less do the maintenance or tune ups required. I know a lot of people with convertible sebrings that seem to have mild to no issues at all. I truly believe its not the car that deserves the credit, its the owners. What the owner does determines how long a car will last.
Bought this 2007 Sebring new. It now has 114.000 miles on it with only one repair, the upper radiator hose. ($67.00) The interior and body are like new.
The car gets Synthetic oil change every 7,000 miles. We love this car and will keep diving another 100,00 plus miles.
Bought my 2.7 2005 Sebring Limited in 2006, used, with low miles. I now have 201,600 mostly highway miles on it. I've had to replace some front suspension parts over the years, and more recently wheel bearings, rotors don't hold up well. I've never run anything but synthetic oil in it. With this many miles I can't complain. Just now I've had the oil light start coming on intermittently when idling. And the check engine light comes on throwing a P0306 code. That light stayed on for 110 miles and then went out, but code is still there. The only other odd issue I've had over the years is dimming/blinking dash lights intermittently, for which no one could ever figure out the cause.
Bought new and have 66,000 miles on it. Only issue is 02 sensors - three replaced so far. Not looking foward to replacing the timing belt and the plugs (3.0 engine) as the intake has to be pulled for the plug R/R. Car known for its road noise but other than that, no complaints. Wife loves it.
