Faults:

Beginning at 24th month: Sending Unit replaced twice; Fuel tank and all fuel lines replaced; Fuel pump replaced; Brake noise has been a constant problem and has not been fixed. There were 8 recall notices in first two years. Many other ongoing problems. Car lacks reliability. Biggest problem has been Chrysler dealer service: Appallingly bad!

General Comments:

Although this convertible's design/looks are excellent, overall vehicle reliability is far worse than average. Chrysler dealer service is terrible: problems don't get fixed, new problems caused while vehicle is in for service, service advisor's have terrible attitude, very poor customer service. I would never again buy a Chrysler. Also, will Mercedes service get dragged down to Chrysler's level with the Daimler Chrysler merge?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I think that when you buy a car you should make sure it has all that you want and need to serve you well!

This car has all the options I wanted and I love it! This is the second one I have bought! The service department has always been very good to me, I think the tool to service people is communication. If you don't like a car then sell it and make a wise decision on your next purchase.

I just want to say, I agree, the car should be used as a convertible, and a cherished one at that. It should be driven in nice weather, and if you want to drive in the winter find a nice jeep or something of that nature to drive. I have had my 1997 Sebring convertible since 2000 and I have 180000 miles on it and it runs like a charm not to mention I have had nothing, but good service when I get work done and I have only had brakes done at 130000. I had them install Brembo brakes, and I have never had another problem, I highly recommend their product.
