We just picked up a 2006 Sebring last Wednesday with 18k on it. MSRP when it was new was $20,000 and we got it for $13,000...very very good vehicle... it does take the tranny a little long for it to shift under hard accel. but oh well otherwise its great! still all Mopars in my family 2 which is good.
We love our sebring!! Only 23k miles and no problems. It does take a little longer than it should to shift when accelerating. wonderful car.
Just bought our second Sebring. The transmission in the 2.4L does take a while, but then again, this is a "luxury" car not a sports car. The Stratus has a little better transmission response (think it's due to the torque converter).Tthe 2.7L one that we just picked up is great! Nice and fast, and gets the same gas mileage as the 2.4L.
The trick is to buy them used, and make sure they aren't ex rental cars.. those cars have been beaten. Buy em used and get em for nothing! I have well over 110,000 miles on mine (2.7 V6) and have had literally no problems, other than routine maintenance. Sure they aren't the best but I find them a great value used. I must say the handling is great on mine is great along with comfort. The transmission is a bit slow, but very reliable... will defiantly buy again!... one disappointment though is that it didn't differ much from my 2000 Chrysler Cirrus... oh well, it was good too!
Well, these things I guess are pretty reliable, (no real problems yet 06' with 47K miles), but I can't say it's a good car after driving everything else. I've had a Sebring for 2 1/2 weeks, and I miss my Toyota very much. The Camry had more power, better gas mileage, more features, and drove better than the Sebring. Not to mention that the Sebring only gets 17 mpg which is horrendous for a 2.7.
The Sebring is a cool looking car with nice amenities and is pretty nicely laid out as well. Good stereo and simply put, feels classy. But, it leaves so much to be desired in my opinion in terms of drivetrain quality and value. Put a V6 Honda engine and transmission and we'd be talking.
