#261 of 473 Copy of Original Warranty for 2000 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
Mar 12, 2006 (8:32 pm)
1.I am looking for a copy of original warranty for 2000 Chrysler Sebring Convertible for research into after market warranty. I need to know what was covered to see if it makes sense to buy additional coverage which of course only covers those original items.
2. My lower glass has separated from the conv. top in back. Interior and exterior. Have read all previous comments at this site. Does anyone know the name brand of adhesive that is most probably going to work?

Is it possible to get 2 x 32" suitcases (10" to 12" high) in the empty trunk?

I just bought a 96 model and went through this. There are two flasher units on your car. In my case, the one in the trunk (pass side wheelwell) turned out to be bad. Cost is about $40 at the dealership. You may have the same problem.
#267 of 473 98 sebring convertible seat belt lock up

my 98 convertable seatbelts have locked up on both front seats, from what I can gather it's possibly related to a sensor, any quick fixes for this or is it a dealer (megabucks) problem.
#269 of 473 Thinking About a Sebring Convertible

I have a 2000 Mustang V6 convertible as a "fun" car mainly for evening drives in the summer and Mustang car shows since it is super detailed with low mileage. Actually it is a terrible car -I would hate to have one as my only car. It is hard to get in and out of, it is noisy, and its plastic interior looks like it was snapped together. It IS a Mustang though so it is supported by Ford and enthusiast groups. I may want to dump the whole Mustang idea and get a more comfortable convertible. The Sebring seems more like a normal car. What year would be the best to get - i.e. when did major improvements happen between say 2000 and 2004? This would still be a fun car and wouldn't be a daily driver which is probably good considering the comments about problems on this Forum. CU really panned the Sebring in 2005 -shakes, poor ride, etc. This isn't agreed to by Edmunds in its road tests of the 2001 or any other tests I've read. How IS the ride? Looking forward to hearing from owners.

I have a 2005 Sebring Touring convertible with V6-2.7L motor with 28800 miles and has leather/suede seats,great cd/stereo. The vert works great and what a chick magnet!Oh the ride is nice allright.The cowling or dash unit shake due to nonrigidness of convertible when running over potholes, bumps.Where as the sedan has all that metal to brace everything better.The car runs smooth but with all the hoopla of "oil sludge damage" leading to catastrophic motor failure has got me so stressed out I don't know what to do.I'm changing oil every 3000 miles with synthetic and with K&N oil filter, but i get a bad feeling it may be a lost cause.There have been "numerous" cases of the so called "oil sludge motor failures" and Chrysler is not backing up the warranty even tho customers are "religiously" changing oil per service manual.I've added my name to the 3 class action lawsuits now pending in court against Chrysler.To read about all of the people all over the USA, and how their Sebrings would just quit on the road while running 50-60mph and find out the motor siezed due to "poor customer maintenance".I don't know dude, but i'd "seriously" be "not thinking of getting a Chrysler Sebring".All of a sudden that "Mustang plastics" is a minor blemish compared with the Sebring. Don't take my word for it, google the sebring, read "all" the news here and on several other forums.You "will" be surprised.I hope i answered your question.People will say "all cars" have problems and i will agree with them.I have had several cars in my 50 years of life and have done my share of work on them.But they haven't read all there is that has been happening to these Chrysler cars.It seems it could be the Quality Control of the motors as they are being made, in that the aluminum chafe, or flakes are not purged from the motor as it goes down the assemby line, so when as a finished product you put oil in, the aluminum flakes get washed into the oil, then transferred thru out the motor bearings, etc. causing the seizure.But for Chrysler not to back their products is outright criminal fraud.Good luck to us Chrysler Sebring owners!!!
