    I just purchased a new 2003 sebring Lxi with black exterior and leather inside. It is beautiful!! Also a in-dash 4 disc CD changer! Not to mention the mounted controls on the steering wheel. The leather inside looks 100% better than my 98 LXI. The new one looks so sporty, stylish, and sleek!!! I love those 17" wheels!! I tinted the windows it just looks fabulous. Oh yea 200HP!!

    I seem to remember someone had posted pics of his/her Sebring convert. and they had bought an aftermarket wind screen - has anyone else done this? Does it work?

    Cooldiva, sounds like you and I purchased very similar vehicles. In February I picked up a black 2003 Sebring LXi couple, 5 speed with leather & sunroof. So far no problems. In comparison with my old Nissan Maxima it handles quite a bit better and is much quieter, but does not accelerate as quickly.

    The wind deflectors definitely help reduce wind noise from the open sunroof. Mine is quite noisy at speed and definitely needs one. I noticed the dealer was selling them for $95 installed. There are various aftermarket ones you can purchase as well for half the price.

    Got a good deal, $20,500 out-the-door. Great looking silver pearl, V6, next to top of line goodies. But, the worst brakes of any car I owned. On rainy highway, when first you hit the brakes you get a heart attack. Nothing, for a long second or so. I heard others with the same problem. Also, lost trans fluid from cooler hose leak. A full week wait for parts, back-ordered everywhere. Maybe a lot of failures. Then the old "check engine" light showed up a brake control module needed replacing. Again, the little light required the main control module to be replaced, only a $900 job if out of warranty. Not long after, the blower control stopped working. Now, at 31,000 the trans or cv joint hums at around 40 or 45. What else is coming?
    I hope for some feedback from you members. I have just joined, and I don't see much action on this chat. Dead since Aug. 5th. Where'd y'all go?I'm Marty, ml18

    I'm really surprised to see a relatively new Sebring convert with the problems Marty (ml18) is having. Makes you wonder what the previous history was. Marty, have you tried to use I'd be an unhappy owner too if I was you. Will the dealer work with you to overcome these unusual problems? I'm sure my dealer would, but after going to some of these message boards he may be the exception.
    Sorry for the feedback delay but I don't check the TH often because there isn't much activity. Back in '01 when I bought my '01, there was a lot of activity here. I don't know where everyone went.

  • Hello everyone,

    I am thinking of buying 97 or 98 Chrysler Sebring coupe. I heard from some people I talked to that Chrysler is a weak car in terms of load carrier parts, like wheel brackets, suspension elements etc. However, none of them ever owened one, so It would not be a good idea to believe them 100%.
    Here I read of other several problems Chryslers have.

    What will real Chrysler owners recommend - to be or not to be. I leave in Russia and wanted to order one form US. We have a Chrysler dealership and parts avaliable, but if it is going to be a problem understand.

    my e-mail:

    I would really appreciate some feedback on this issue.

    Go and look at the other chat boards - problems and Sebring Convertible. I have had a ton of problems with my 2002 Sebring Covt. I currently have a love/hate relationship with my car. I keep waiting for the next thing. Here is my list of issues:
    Window regulators had to be replaced.
    Tranny cooling line leak.
    AC honk - TSB for this.
    Ticking noise - TSB for this also. New mount had to added to the exhaust system.
    My tranny is very rough when downshifting from 2nd to 1st. Took it into the dealer 3 times, no help. I would never recommend to anyone to buy another Chrysler. Good luck with yours.

    In Jul 1998, I purchased a '96 Sebring Conv w/25k miles on it and paid $12k. I added a new set of tires for ca. $400. I presently have 80k miles on it, have put about $5k in maintenance & repairs incl. new heated rear window, replaced an oxygen sensor in the engine, & just today put on another set of new tires ($340). The top is beginning to go and will need to be replaced this year of next (about $600 incl. labor). Otherwise, I love the 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine -- it's peppy, great mileage (32 interstate/26 city), it's a fun car and I recommend it to everyone. But, I can't see spending what they want for new ones ($25-32k).

    I purchased a screen through Morpar for my 2002 Sebring Unlimited. I had the dealership install it. I like it and it does help.

    Does anyone have recommendations for getting an extended warranty for my '03 Sebring LXi sedan? Company names and cost? The dealership is sending me their information to obtain one, but I do not trust them fully (I've been back multiple times for various problems, some of which are still not remedied).

    Hello, everyone!!!! I would like some advice about a possible purchase: 2004 Sebring Coupe Limited brand new - off the door I will be owing $13,000. I'm trading my 2004 Toyota Matrix, good car, but it's a big difference froim a 4-cyl to a 6-cul. I will be paying only $7.00 more a month. How would you recommend this car? What about insurance? I'm paying $2,104 a year for my Matrix, way too high for this type of car. How much do you pay for insurance? I am in Miami, Florida. Thanks in advance.

    I have just purchased a beautiful light blue 2003 Sebring LX Sedan with 31,000 miles for $10K! I absolutely love it! It already started to give me a minor problem but it is under warranty so it's no big deal. Overall I am very satisfied. I love the gauges! I plan to "pimp" it out. I going to tint the windows, put a custom interior, put a sound system, and probably put 20" chrome wheels on it. I just have to save some money first. I have big dreams for my car...hopefully I can make them come true. I reccomend this car to everyone! Very clean ride and drives great!
  • I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convert. The windshield washer does not work, I took it to the shop they wanted $450.00 to install a new multi function switch, we had it put in for 160.00 by a friend, we still have the same problem :cry: my wipers work fine, I just cannot get any fluid to wash the windshield, has anyone had this problem, if so please send me the fix :cry:
  • 2003 lx Sebring has the most beautiful rear end of all cars,include gals, like Monroe, Grable and include the robust enormity of Nicole. If Chrysler in 2007 disengages on Sebring's lucious rear end......I will not buy another Chrylers Sebring model. Cars like the 2003 Sebring LX does have a unique sexual DNA. For men..... the rear end is the most important and impressive aspect of artistic form.
  • I purchased a 2004 sebring limited, i have had a few problems with it, the brakes sound terrrrrible, and the biggest problem of all is leaking on the drivers side floor board of the car, has anyone had any problems like this have taken it to the dealer three different times
  • Hey all!! I just bought a 2005 Sebring Touring, the first car that is costing more than a couple grand. Scary to say the least. But after reading some reviews I am feeling a little better. :) Anyone here have one of these?
  • neonitisneonitis Posts: 11
    Hey KarenS. Hello I am David in Dallas,Texas. I bought a 2005 Sebring Touring convertible with 21k. It has been the quietest car i have ever owned, with the exception of the slight noise from the vinyl top. Verry comfortable ride. Suede/Leather seats, computer trip monitor, V6-2.7, and i guess the infinity sound system, cuz it sure is "loud". I have taken it to Louisiana, about 720 mile round trip and got about 28.9 mpg. I installed a K&N air filter, and a windblocker. I'm impressed in the solid feel of the transmission shifting. The "hard Brakes on wet highway" was the first for me tho. Kinda scarey. I'm looking for a front strut tower bar to stiffen up the front end flexing when cornering and for reducing the cowl shake.For what have you had to pay "couple grand"? What kind of experiences have you had with your sebring? Have you installed any mods etc? And where are you at in the USA?
