A top-notch Convertible! by Jeepster on 10/08/2012. Trim: 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Convertible, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I own a 2001 Sebring LXi Convertible and love vitually everything about it - Styling, Ride, Performance, Reliability, Roominess, Comfort and the excellent Infinity stereo system, just for starters. I should also mention that the gas mileage of the 2.7 liter engine is excellent - over 30 mpg highway, mid 20's overall.
Cons: The only negatives are that some parts are buried such as the thermostat, and the battery (in the driver's side front fender).
Overall review: I've owned a number of covertibles over the years from VW Carbriolets to Saab 9-3s, and I must say that when all is said & done surprisingly I prefer the Sebring LXi over the much more expensive Saab. The styling of the Sebring is absolutrly drop-dead gorgeous, but styling alone doesn't make the car. It is the combination of room, ride, quiteness, comfort, performance, handling, gas mileage, a great stereo, and so much more that make the Sebring Convertible an excellent choice. Did I mention that it is an extremely reliable vehicle as well? Chrysler had been criticized for issues with reliability, but I've owned a number of Chrysler products and find them (and my Sebring) to be extremely reliable. I would not hesitate to purchase another, but hope to own this one for many, many, mnay years to come. I must say, based on the "nearly new" condition of this 12 year old vehicle inside and out, it is certainly aging very well. I absolutely love it!
