Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The heated seats were until they stopped working
Cons: The blind spots in the vehicle and that Daimler Chrysler does not stand behind its vehicle.
Advice: Do not buy Daimler ChryslerI bought a 2007 Chrysler Sebring in December of 2006 and it has been in the shop every month since. It left the factory without being sealed and I am still having problems, not just with moisture but with other things as well. I have written to the CEO of Chrysler and his people have contacted me and more or less told me today (8/2/07) who cares. But after reviewing several reports about Daimler Chrysler I have found out they gave me the same speech they give everyone else. Quoted from Chrysler 'It has to be duplicated for it to be a problem' Well let me tell you when I almost have a wreck b/c my windows are fogging up constantly in the middle of summer and it is not raining outside, then this is a real problem to me. My advice to all consumers is do not buy Daimler Chrysler. They do not stand behind there vehicles. They do not check their vehicles when they leave the factory to make sure they are a 100% completed. I feel that Daimler Chrysler is a disgrace to women (because they do not take me seriously) and to America. My family or friends will never buy Daimler Chrysler again.
Pros: 3.5 engine and 6 speed transmission, with electronic stability control and posi-traction
Cons: Inside is all plastic even though on the Limited, they try to break it up with something.
Advice: You really have to get either the Touring model with the 3.5 liter and 6 speed or the Limited- other engines too slowI bought the new 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible and this is what this evaluation is about. The 3.5 liter engine coupled with the 6 speed transmission and the electronica stability package, with positraction, makes for a truly awesome vehicle in this class. It is not a bimmer as far as handling or acceleration, but it holds the road and takes corners beautifully and is very quick with this engine. The look of the car, especially with the standard 18' wheels is conservative more in the class as far as looks with the Solara Convertible. But, it looks much better and less bulky standing still than the Solara, particularly in silver and with the 18' tires take away that 'baby pram' look that comes with cars with as much heft as this one. Overall, for the money it is an excellent buy. I have had many Sebrings/LeBarons, but this is truly the best boulevard car I have had yet. Lots of features and accessories that when purchased, still produce a reasonable price for this automobile
Pros: The spacious comfortable cabin.
Cons: Standard limited edition does not have a moon roof.
Advice: Go test drive it you will be impressed.Comfort, huge interior space, comparable to a full size car in a mid size chassis. A trunk that will comfortably hold the golf clubs for a foursome. The 3.5 V6 has power to spare and that makes passing a breeze.
