2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Limited 2.7 from North America
Seems always something went wrong; every time I serviced this car, there seemed to be another problem.
The top seams along the edge always come loose, engine and air bag light keeps coming on, you will smell gas after 30000 miles.
After I had 30000, a transmission update.
Overheated 8 times.
After I had a fuel injection service done, idle was never the same.
Even with the extended warranty, it will nickel and dime you to death.
I had 2 Sebring Convertibles now. I just got a Hyundai Sonata because of reliability. The Sebring Convertible is great for a while, but once you hit 29000, watch out.
I'm never getting another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The 2.7 engine in 2004 is known to be a sludge former. Your idling problem could be a problem with sludge, and not fuel injection. There is a class-action lawsuit pending on this. Likely the person you sold it to had to replace the engine well before it is time.
Chrysler should restore trust in owners of their cars by backing up the 2004 production year 2.7 engine with an extended warranty.
