Faults:

Have 3 Sebrings now, All convertible, and have to say that the 6 cylinders run better with less repair than my one 4 cylinder

We do have the water issue, but clearing the drains does stop it. Rain does go in through back small window gaskets; check yours, there is a space there.

As for the stalling, our 4 cylinder did that until it would not restart. After 7 months and 3 different garages (we found the dealers no help), finally an honest knowledgeable mechanic to tell us it was a bad computer and crank sensor; just under 1,000.00 labor and all, and the car runs great, and the bonus is the odometer works now too. But both were needed for it to work.

Don't give up, they are good cars, if only someone would come up with a fix for the visors and the tearing of fabric on them, without having to replace at over 300.00.

My cars, 2-1996 and a 2000.

Summary:

I LOVE IT

Faults:

Minor electrical, ball joint.

General Comments:

I absolutely still love my car as much as the day I bought it. It's comfortable, looks great, very very dependable and I'd get another in a heartbeat. The only drawback I can think of are a couple of design ones. It's difficult to see when you are backing up and I don't care for the drink holders!

Previous carSaturn SL

Summary:

A decently powered rag top

Faults:

I have to replace the brakes every 25,000 mile, but I do drive it really hard.

The top leaked around the passenger window, but the dealership paid to have it fixed.

The AC compressor pulley sheared off at 100,000 miles and cost $1100 to fix.

General Comments:

The car has good power, a lot more than the Saturn we had, but I'm used to V-8's otherwise I might have ranked it higher. It can get up to 100mph or more on the highway if you're not paying attention.

The handling is really good for its size too.

It's been a reliable car for my wife and myself and we love to cruise around with the top down.

Previous carBuick Century

Summary:

A great bargain as long as you didn't buy it brand new

Faults:

I had to replace the brakes and rotors at about 40000. The top leaks an annoying drip on the driver's side and there is too much wind noise coming in between the windshield header and the top, especially if the wipers are being used.

General Comments:

I love this car. It is very good looking with the top up or down.

The interior is nice and it seems as though the leather is going to hold up well. I would like it better if the bottom seat cushions were a bit longer, however.

The boot for the top looks sharp when it is in place, but the velcro at the front seems a weak way to fasten it in place.

The car handles extremely well for a front driver and has enough pep. I like the fact that it gets more than 25mpg at a steady 80 MPH.

Previous carDodge Avenger

Summary:

I still love the car and hope that it continues to be a good purchase

Faults:

My driver-side rear window was broken by vandals. It took the dealership window vendor four attempts to position the replacement glass so that it didn't leak or whistle.

I have noticed that my fuel pump will have an intermittent high-pitched ringing sound. I haven't been able to isolate the cause yet - fuel level, ambient temperature, or planetary alignment. The dealer won't replace it until it poops out.

General Comments:

I can't figure out why Chrysler engineered the car to seat four passengers, installed four independently controllable windows, yet only put the rear window controls in the driver's door panel. Why not put rear window controls in the rear of the car? You could put a window "lockout" in the drivers door panel if the reason for this oversight was children. I have to control the window position for any passengers who are riding in the back!
