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: Too amny to list... Picking one would have to say the seats.
Cons: None. Love the entire car!
Advice: A lot of vehicles out there in this class. This is the best for the price.This vehicle is great. Excellent performance for the price and size/class of the vehicle. Nice smooth ride very comfortable. Very happy with the purchase and would do it again.
Pros: The styling--like nothing else American or foreign short of a Bentley o RR.
Cons: The fact that it is named 300C rather than the appropriate 300N.
Advice: Buy one if you want a big, sylish, powerful car.This is a looker, a cruiser, a hot rod, a family car, a comfortable car, an attention getter all rolled into one. These 300Cs are the cars that were killed off in the early 1970s and are the return of the big Chrysler with all the advantages that 21st Century technology has to offer. It is a joy to drive and ride.
Cons: A tie between the steering, transmission, and brakes
Advice: Do not buy ChryslerI test drove this vehicle in several years and ended up purchasing the 2005. Talk about a big mistake, so far it's been to the dealer 3 times for 3 different problems. Not only that, but I had such bad experiences at the repair shop that I went to a different dealer each time. Unfortunately, Chrysler warranties don't help you if you need to go somewhere with competent mechanics. So, if you're willing to drive 1 hour to the 3rd closest dealer only to have the mechanic say, 'I don't understand why it won't work' only to have to pay out of pocket for a local company to fix it straight out in 4 hours, than maybe Chrysler is for you. Otherwise, try a company with reliable cars and reliable mechanics.
Pros: Ride and smooth application of power.
Cons: Metal trim rather than wood
Advice: Don't hesitate... its worth far more than its competition in the luxury world.Exactly what you'd expect from a Mercedes 'E' model chassis with a 345 hp Hemi strapped to it....WOW!! Incredible ride with the smoothest acceleration I have ever experienced. Others have said, 'If you don't want to spend the money, don't test drive it!' I test drove a dozen Japanese and German luxury cars. I bought this American Beauty. There is a reason it has won Consumer Guide and Car and Driver awards 3 years in a row. Dollar for Dollar, no other car on the market gives you as much. The ability to run on 4 cylinders in overdrive is seemless and flawless.
Pros: beautiful with the top down!
Cons: Rattling Windows, poor heating system
Advice: look at other convertibles with a sturdier build!The Chrysler Sebring convertible has many problems/quirks. The windows are horrendous with their rattling. I have taken the car 8x to be adjusted and they never improve. The positive note is the pickup of the v6....very snappy, and smooth sailing! :) The excessive wind noise, and rattling windows are very annoying. I would never buy another sebring convertible. The Sebring has the typical Chrysler issues. Fun to drive with the top down, but otherwise a very noisy car.
Pros: bad boy body style........HEMI !!!!
Advice: not your everyday ho hum sedanMy husband & I have always wanted one of these bad boys and it just happened one weekend that we had the opportunity to test drive one. My advise to anyone who is considering buying one is if you don't want to spend the money.....DON'T TEST DRIVE IT!!! We bought it the next day! We fell in love with this car. It rides like a dream, more power under the hood than we ever imagined! We always loved the design of the car, but after we drove one, it was a done deal! Rather pricey, but worth every penny. Absolutely an awesome automobile!
Pros: Nice sounding stereo
Cons: Vehicle sits far too low to ground to be a practical driver !
Advice: Steer clear of this vehicle, you'll pay now, and you'll pay later !Bought '05 Sebring Coupe new in April of '05. Super exterior appearance, very aggressive look/ stance, that being, vehicle is so low to ground, and very large tires with attractive wheel design. However, after one year of ownership, that's where my interest of the '05 Sebring Coupe ended ! The Coupe is the most unpracticle vehicle ever ! In fact, the Coupe sits so low to ground, you can't drive up/ down most hills without damaging the under carraige of the vehicle ! After one year, I had to replace the entire front plastic bumper cover due to bottoming out the vehicle from traveling up/ down hills ! If you live in snow country as I do, forget it ! One good snow, and possibly, there goes your muffler, exhaust pipe, etc ! The car's just too low to ground for reasonable everyday use. My vehicle had the 4 cylinder engine w/ automatic transmission. To my surprise, the 4 held its own for pulling around a vehicle the size of the coupe, and the automatic transmission was responsive. The vehicle was really exhausting to get in/ out of because of height of vehicle from road surface. You had to throw yourself in, and then fight to climb out ! Dash design was bland, insturments were dim lit for night driving, too dim, and insturments were small/ hard to read. Nice stereo though, and heat and a/c worked well. In reality, only 4 adults could sit in vehicle, 5 would be pushing things a bit. Build quality appeared solid/ sound with exception of exterior design compromising the build quality as noted above. Once inside vehicle, should you attempt to use your sun visors, you then could not see one half of the road infront of you ! Driver visability was an extreme negative w/ this vehicle, you must be at your best to try and steer clear of hitting someone at all times. Trunk space is more than adaquate. In regard to comfort, this car has a busy type ride that can wear you down fast, it's definately not a long distance cruiser, even though, the vehicle does drive smoothly equipped w/ the touring suspension. Quality of interior is typical Chrysler, 'Cheap plastic', dull design. In the handling dept., the vehicle corners well, remains level in turns, and breaks well. However, on first week of ownership I had to have a rotor replaced, as it was warpped right from the showroom floor.
