2003 Chrysler Sebring Convertible LX 2.7L 6 cylinder
In my experience, this is a very good car. The best value for the money
Not many issues with this car, except once when I had to replace the head gasket.
The car is very comfortable and spacious.
It feels luxurious with its leather automatic seats, 6 CD changer and everything power.
I like to drive it with the convertible down when sunny; a lot of fun.
It gets 26 MPG in the city, which is pretty good.
With its 6 cylinder engine, it is very fast.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would have to agree with you. I own a 2001 Sebring LXi Convertible, and it has been one of the most enjoyable vehicles I ever owned.
Chrysler certainly got the styling dead-on right on this generation of Sebring convertibles. They may have borrowed a few styling cues from Jaguar, but this Chrysler has classic styling in its own right. I still like to just stand in the yard & look at it, with its absolutely timeless & drop-dead gorgeous styling. Its still brilliant & shiny black paint, black top, gorgeous taupe interior & the knock-out alloy wheels. After almost 13 years, it still looks nearly new and drives like an absolute dream.
Of all of the convertibles that I have owned, this one does everything well - smooth quiet ride, fantastic stereo system, good handling, great gasoline mileage with plenty of power from the silky smooth 2.7 liter V6 coupled to a buttery smooth shifting 4 speed automatic transmission, and it also has plenty of room - even the trunk is quite large. For those who make jokes about Sebrings being the ultimate 'rental-fleet car' or putting down Chrysler's quality, it is apparent that these people never drove a Sebring convertible, let alone owned one.
Continue to enjoy your Sebring. I hope to enjoy mine for many, many years to come.

*Only* a head gasket! Just a trivial wear item, really.

I had the misfortune of driving several Sebrings of this generation, and will still attest to them being as bad as their reputation suggests. The interior is obviously cheap plastic, and it develops rattles within 50k miles. The car understeers horribly, and its body shakes and flexes over the slightest road imperfections. And then there's the reliability nightmare that is the 2.7 V6...
