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

2001 Sebring LXi coupe
Ice Silver Pearlcoat
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!

About 7,000 miles so far, one problem, a resistor in the HVAC went, leaving only high speed fan operational. Fixed promptly by our 5*.

2001 LXi Convertible
4 CD Changer
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).
#7 of 123 2001 Coupe LXI...
Jun 26, 2001 (8:19 am)
Picked up: 11/7/00
Current Miles: 10,300
What I got...
Deep Indigo Blue Metallic
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.)
- 4 CD Changer
- Side Airbags
No problems so far, other than the alignment a bit off. Five star dealer fixed that up today. So far so good!

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.
