1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible GTi 5.2 from North America
This car looks great, but looks are extremely decieving
Brakes need to be totally replaced every 4 to 6 months. Front and back.
Distributor needed to be totally replaced.
Radiator, muffler, ball joints, tune up, fuses, water pump, air conditioning compressor, hood latches, catalytic converter, transmission, wheel bearings, and literally everything mechanical in this car had to be replaced.
This car has cost me over $17,000 in repairs in less than 5 years, after paying $10,000 for it from a dealer. The dealer washed his hands of it as soon as I drove it off his lot.
The only thing that has not been replaced on this car is the roof, and it's on its way to needing it too.
Everything on this car costs about $1000 paid out in labor to perform the job, and then pay for the parts that vary in price from $650 down to $75 for a muffler. Prices vary so much for everything, that if you don't shop around, you will feel like you've been robbed. The distributor was $1600 from the dealer, then $100 for the cap and another $100 for the rotor. I got them all as a package, from another aftermarket place for $550. Then the dealer took 3 days to put it in and got it wrong when he did. The car didn't run at all after he was done, and it had to be done over.
The manufacturer of this car should be sued for selling such a malfunctioned piece of work, and telling us that it is good quality items.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
