2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Limited 3.5 liter from North America

Summary:

Not very well made

Faults:

I have the soft convertible top that has stopped functioning 4 times. The last time, Chrysler took it apart and fixed it as I was about to invoke the Lemon Law.

Car is starting to groan on turns.

Trunk mechanism has broken 2 times.

Factory installed pin striping fell off.

Various parts of car are starting to come undone.

General Comments:

With the 3.5, 235 Mercedes derived engine (from the old Daimler alliance) and the 6 speed transmission, it has nice performance.

Handling is sloppy on turns and not at all tight.

Interior is all plastic not fitting for this class of car.

It is a good value for the money.

One of the few convertibles in this price class with a soft top.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I actually prefer the soft top - IMO a convertible should look like a convertible. I've owned 6 convertibles - All were soft-tops.

As far as price - my previous $43,000 Saab had a soft-top, I wouldn't want it any other way. Hardtop convertibles take up way too much luggage space, and the tops are far too heavy IMO.
