You are in the Chrysler Sebring
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Sebring, Convertible
#1 of 473 Chrysler Sebring convertible
Jul 16, 2003 (9:02 pm)
Why is there no discussion about this hot-selling (and looking) convertible? It got on the top 10 list on Edmunds 2004 Buying Guide.
#2 of 473 its due to the Asian/Euro centric "enthusiasts" ...

that wont give a US product a fair shake.
example: the solara is on it's SIXTH archive ... yet the XLR hasn't had a post since 7/1.
#3 of 473 btw ... i think Daim/Chry should make up the performance of it

They have a GTC version which has an available 5 speed. which IS a great start.
They just need to warm it over a bit. If it had 225 to 250 HP ... heck, can u imagine the SRT4 engine in this?
Sebring GTR ... hmmmmmmmmm ... 'course Nissan might get mad.
#4 of 473 I LOVE THE SEBRING CONVERTIBLE

If I were buying a convertible, I would grab an LXi with gold exterior and beige interior and a tan top and drive away (after paying for it of course ). I may buy a convertible for fun when I can afford to have a second vehicle. But I also would consider getting an Isuzu Axiom for tackling dirt roads in Canada and a Dodge Ram for transporting Home Depot stuff to add to my 2002 Volvo wagon.
#5 of 473 i think...

it boils down to this:
people that buy Sebrings aren't really car nuts. they want a comfy half-way decent looking car with a power top and leather seats. they aren't the types to really post things about their cars.
but yes, the VW's and Hondas are full of posts, because they like driving. even Hyundai topics are full, because that brand is causing such a stir in the market. a Sebring just isn't a car that offends anyone, or excites anyone. it is just a nice car for regular folks. just like a Taurus, Malibu, etc.
that is what i think must be happening. there is no forum for the Sebring Coupe either. but there is for the Eclipse. they are the same car!
#6 of 473 They are on the same platform

But are VERY different. (Eclipse and Sebring/Stratus) The Eclipse is supposidly more sport-oriented and the Sebring/Stratus have a lot more room and TOTALLY different styling.
"half-way decent looking car" I don't think so. Like I said earlier, this is a hot styled car that just doesn't put a huge emphasis on handling. I enjoy (LOVE) driving but simply I don't care about power and handling. I care more about creature comforts. Modern Hondas are about as fun to drive as a Buick. The Taurus has an active discussion. But now this discussion is getting active. Maybe everyone was waiting for someone else to start one.

the Sebring CONVERTIBLE is has "hot" styling? i totally disagree. my mother is 51 - she likes the car a lot too. but she also likes Pontiacs. not what i would call styled - perhaps "over" styled. but, to each his own. the Sebring Coupe is a beautiful car though. much better looking than the Eclipse. decent interior too.
and for the record, the Sebring Convertible and Sedan are related, and the Sebring Coupe and Eclipse are related. the V6's in the Coupe/Mitsu are different than in the sedan/droptop.
#8 of 473 There is not a better styled convertible on the market for 2004
Jul 17, 2003 (6:30 pm)
I knew that (Eclipse/Sebring/Stratus coupe), justin. In fact, I know everything there is to know about autos. Who owns who, all makes and models, etc. FYI I am 25 and own a 2002 VOLVO V70. I think it has excellent exterior styling and also I think the Isuzu Axiom, Dodge Ram, Mitsu Montero, and Sebring conv. are in the top 10 best styled cars on the market today.

our definition of style are obviously completely different. i prefer an understated elegance - even in trucks.
but like i said, if it weren't for not-so-pretty cars, i wouldn't like other cars as much!
