Karen@EdmundsKaren@Edmunds Posts: 5,023
Please take a moment to introduce yourself and share some details about your Sebring!

My name is KarenS and I am the host of the Owner's Clubs. Please let me know what discussions you would like to see in your Club folder. I will create them ASAP. You may want to take a look through the other clubs to get ideas for discussions.

Also, if you are interested in a live chat, I can arrange that for you. All Club chats are set up on

4:00-5:00 pm PT/7:00-8:00pm ET


5:00-6:00pm PT/8:00-9:00pm ET
6:00-7:00pm PT/9:00-10:00 ET
7:00-8:00pm PT/10:00-11:00pm ET
(The latter may be rather late for East Coasters, but is available if you want.)

Let me know if you are interested in a chat and the day/time convenient for you.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    How about adding Dodge Stratus Coupe owners also? The cars are almost identical.

    2001 Sebring LXi coupe
    Ice Silver Pearlcoat
    AutoStick (Sportronic)
    Traction Control
    Silver wheels (no chrome for me, thank you very much!)

    No mods at this time, although I'm thinking constantly.

    Steve: there is a Stratus board as well. I'm hoping they're linked, so we can all share the info we get!

    Got it Thursday and Georgia weather has been perfect. I am loving the top-down life. I finally have a car other than my wife's hand-me-down kidmobile's (minivan, suburban).

    Ordered: 9/3/00
    Picked up: 11/7/00
    Current Miles: 10,300

    What I got...

    Deep Indigo Blue Metallic
    Beige Leather
    5 speed manual
    4 CD, in-dash

    The rest is standard LXi equipment

    Problems: nothing major, just the standard set of issues everyone else seems to have.
    Water on the side windows upon roll-down/roll-up.
    Weird 'creaking' noise out of the rear suspension.

    I plan to deal with these shortly before the warranty runs out (mainly, gonna keep it as-is for another 22,000 miles ... as long as nothing ELSE crops up)

    Satisfaction Quotient (out of 10): 11, this car is a dream to drive. I have ZERO regrets buying this car. I also love the 'exclusivity' of owning one of these ... since 11/00, I've seen maybe 5-6 other coupes on the road (seen plenty of sedans tho, go figure).

    That's all for now.

    Hi I'm Karl. I got my Silver LXi sedan two weeks ago today. It's got:

    - Dark Grey Leather interior (though to keep the floors clean)
    - Luxury Group (autostick, prem. speakers, alloy whells, etc.)
    - Moonroof
    - 4 CD Changer
    - Side Airbags
    - ABS

    No problems so far, other than the alignment a bit off. Five star dealer fixed that up today. So far so good!
  • Hi, I'm Jean >:-) Got my Sebring in March, dealership wrecked it in April... you can read the sad story on the board, msg #232... <:-(

    2001 Sebring LXi coupe
    grey leather

    pros: NO blind spots! fun to drive, great infinity stereo and cd changer

    cons: creaking noise, windows wet for days, cheap looking plastic dashboard, poor resale value!

    Took delivery of my Sebring LXi sedan in December, loaded except for sunroof. Just over 7K on the clock now. Still in heaven. Plan to install a 300M chrome shifter today or tomorrow.
  • sp01sp01 Posts: 81
    I've clocked about 1800 miles thus far, and I'm noticing a few gravel stings on the nose already.

    I'm not much of a fan of bras (ummmm), but has anyone else added or considered a little front-end protection?
  • leebealeebea Posts: 25
    I'm Lee and my auto is a two month old 2001 Sterling Blue Limited. It has everything but the smokers package (and I would have paid the $20 to eliminate it). NOBODY smokes in any of my automobiles.
    It's my toy. It has about 650 miles on it and has never been out in the rain. It will not see any snow in the winter either. That's what my Blazer is for.
    This is my first ever Chrysler product so I read every review I could find before I bought it, even though I fell in love with it the first time I saw one on display in the shopping mall. So far I like the treatment of Daimler-Chrysler and my dealer.
    I've never been one for computer forums, but this one has been fun. I check it at least once a day to see what people have to say.
    Thanks Karen S. if you're responsible for this "owners club".

    I have an LXi sedan with:
    Side Airbags
    Chrome Wheels
    Stereo Upgrade
    Deep Sapphire Blue W/Taupe int.
    Got about 2K on it and no problems so far. Except about a month ago some dope backed up into me and scraped the bumper and put a dent on the edge of the hood. No problem though his insurance co. paid for everything including the rental. The body shop did an excellent job,can't even tell it was fixed. This is also my first Chrysler product and all i can say is what a sweet ride! I get alot of people doing a double take when i blow by them. Good Luck with your new Sebrings everyone.

    I've got the hood mask on my car. Not the entire bra that sits over the fender and all, just the part that goes over the hood. I went onto Chryslers' website to the accessories page. Then I ordered it from my local dealer, took about 2 days for it to come in. It looks pretty good, I think alot better than the full bra. The only problem is when it rains or you wash your car, you must take it off and dry it or else the paint under the mask will eventually fog. A little extra hassle, but it really cuts down on the stone chips.

    Thanks. I'm going shopping.

    venez68: "I get alot of people doing a double take when i blow by them..." It IS sweet, isn't it?

    Congrats to all who have made the purchase!
  • This is Steve from New Jersey. My company ended its fleet car program this spring, and all us employees have been forced to use our own cars. After 20 years driving company cars (and dreaming of convertibles), I was forced to buy a car for the first time in my life. After test driving a 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi convertible, there really was no other car worth considering.

    Ive had my silver Sebring for about 7 weeks (and about 3800 miles) now. When I wake up in the morning, I cant wait to hop in the car for a top-down drive. At the end of the work day, nothing feels better than that top-down drive home!

    The car is polished with 2 coats of Zaino so far, and I wash it weekly. You can see my pride and joy here. My wife laughs: the company car got washed maybe twice a year.

    My only complaint about this car is that it doesn't have as much pickup as I'd like. But that aside, I love my Sebring convertible!


  • vlisvlis Posts: 28
    Gorgeous! Quite a contrast with that car in the background. ;-)
  • sp01sp01 Posts: 81
    Too bad it's such a boring car, eh?...;-)

    I knew it wouldn't take long before we got a Sal clone in here...[-P

    Hi all Sebring owners!
    I have:
    2001 Chrysler Sebring Coupe Lxi
    Black w/beige leather interior
    moon roof, chrome 17" wheels (ABS), 4-disc cd in-dash changer.
    So far 11,500 beautiful km's.
    I always get all sorts of compliments on this car for how good it looks and how smooth it rides.
    Great interior space for a sports luxury coupe (esp. in the rear seats)
    I keep looking at this car after I drive it and I feel like adding stuff to the car to make it even better (ie. tint windows, perf. muffler, intake system, maybe a spoiler), but seriously it looks sooo good just the way it is. There are not a lot of cars out there, especially in this price range that you can say that.

    I would also like to thank everyone here for their opinions, concerns, and advice.
  • Karen@EdmundsKaren@Edmunds Posts: 5,023
    Well..there's another word to be added to the Spellcheck list! Searing is substituted for Sebring. I'll pass it on to the CM.

    Anyone care to suggest other discussions for your club? Accessories & Modifications? Dealers & Service? What Did You Pay? Problems & Solutions?

    Also, I'm aware the the Stratus and Sebring are virtually the same, but the clubs are set up by manufacturer. SO, what about a Sebring/Stratus Owners Hang-out (or some other title better than that)? I can link it to both clubs. Let me know what you think.

    Nice to meet you all!

    All those things you mentioned do make the car look nicer and run a helluva lot better...I'm not sure about the spoiler however...After much debate, I decided not to install the spoiler, cuz I think it would detract from, not enhance, the look of the rear end. The 300M style rear on the Sebring is so clean and elegant, it just flows. A spoiler would do much to destroy that sophisticated, European look (IMHO)...BTW tinted windows on the black LXi look incredible, gives it an almost menacing aura...the car looks like it means business...I will try to post some pictures eventually, but for now I LOVE MY LXI....
