I am considering a used SEBRING. I was wondering if anyone here would like to comment on this review from Apr 03 issue of Consumer Reports. Personally, I think thier reviews are heavy handed (esp this one). I'd like to hear from actual Sebring owners.
The Sebring comes in sedan, coupe, and convertible
versions. The sedan and convertible are based on the same platform as the
Dodge Stratus sedan. The coupe is derived from the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The
sedan we tested suffered from too much road noise, a lack of handling
agility, and a stiff, unsettled ride. Access is dif- ficult, and the rear
seat is too low to be comfortable. Emergency handling is secure, braking is
competent, and frontal-crash-test performance was good. The four-cylinder
engine is unimpressive, but the optional 2.7 -liter V6 provides quick

We were quoted $26,000 drive off on a new red 2003 Chrysler Sebring Convertible LXI (V6 with leather). Does this seem like a good price? Dealer also offered us $25,000 drive off on same model but a gold demo with 5k miles.

I've got a 2000 JXI convertible, and am ready to replace the tires. Any recommendations? 90% of my miles are at 70 mph on the frewway, and when I am off the freeway, I drive pretty agressively.
I live in the SF Bay Area, so inclement weather isn't an issue (just a little seasonal rain).

Go to Carmax.com and look at their prices. I think you should be able to get an '04 for this price. Chrysler has a Bigger rebate on the '03 models. I just bought (from a Dealer) a Used '02 with 16,500 mi - LXI, Leather, ABS, Vinyl top - $17,500 plus TTL.
Good Luck with the purchase.

Thanks cmeng. We did go to Carmax but they did not have the model in the color that my husband wanted. We actually paid $23,800+ttt, which came out to $26,000 drive off (sales tax is 7%). The dealer actually beat Carmax on similar models (in different colors) due to the transportation fee charged by Carmax.

I don't really know what a GOOD price is. However, the best thing about CarMax is that give you a good benchmark for comparison. If you can get a better deal - and it seems that you should be able to beat Carmax - and also get the vehicle you want - congratulations on yoour new ride. It is a "top down day" here.
when asking about prices - it is almost impossible to try to compare prices when the quotes include taxes and liscenses.
Have fun with the car.

Sounds like a great deal to me. Especially if with the leather interior. I expect you will have that much fun with the car in the next few months.

I want to find a low mileage, garage-kept, warm weather,(no snow / roadsalt), Limited Sebring ragtop, for myself, in celebration of my early retirement from the L.A. film industry. Any sightings or suggestions, beyond the usual websites?
