1999 Chrysler Sebring Convertible JXI 2.5 liter 6 cylinder from North America
Lovely, but troubled
Transmission - twice. 1st: 87,000, 2nd: 123,000.
Blower control relay four times.
Stereo - dealer changed for defective LED lighting.
Convertible rear glass: came loose at 66,000, & replaced at 155,000. Took several years to finally fail, unable to stick glass to fabric, had to replace the glass at a fabric shop for $400.00. REAR GLASS WAS NOT BROKEN, BUT USELESS NOW!!!
Front wheel alignment: performed every season I've owned the car.
Basically, I bought this car in the middle of the winter time due to my past convertible didn't keep out the weather, so loved the fact this top was insulated and the fabric was very durable.
No major problems with the top, but with the rear window, if your rear window starts to become loose or separates from the glass, fix it immediately because it will get worse, and you will be stuck with a rear glass that is still good, but useless. I have the old glass in my garage.
The blower relay has went out over four times, which only lets the blower motor go from high to low only, no speed in between.
I had the tranny replaced twice, thanks to the warranty the second time. It seems Chrysler has a problem creating a good tranny, so be aware!! I will not buy another Chrysler car ever!!
I hope this car will last for another three years so my son can take it off my hands.
This has been a nice car, minus the tranny and back window issue.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My 99 Sebring JXI had falling RPM at idle, which triggering the low oil pressure light. A mechanic cleaned the throttle body with fluid to remove grime, and the car returned to idling at the recommended 700 RPM.
