I paid $16,995 for a Taupe Frost 2001 Lx with 24,000 miles from a Chrysler dealer that had a ton of them sitting on the lot; I paid extra for the extended warranty. I got a good bargain. The exterior is flawless and it has the 200 h.p. engine that was standard last year and Infinity speakers. It has cloth seats, but I don't mind because they're comfortable.
Just purchased my 2002 LXI Convertible on May 31st. Here in San Antonio Texas, you don't find too many convertibles on the dealers lots and they don't like to discount them much. However, that said, I've got a salesman at one local dealership that I send about 20 deals a year to and he owed me a favor. Bought the LXI, list 27,125 for 25,000, subtract out the 1,500 rebate and it was 23,500 +ttl. Folks, that's a steal for such a great car, hell, I paid 22,600 for my wifes 2000 Accord EX V6 a few years ago and it's not near as gorgeous or as much fun.
Just color me HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
I recently bought a 2002 onyx green/sandalwood LX 2.7L in April of this year. For $22,499 (after Chrysler's rebate), the car has the larger 2.7L engine, 6 way power driver's seat, cassette cd combo option, cruise control, and 16" aluminum wheels instead of the standard chrome wheel covers. It's a beauty and I love it!!!
I just bought a brand new 2002 Sebring LXi Coupe that was loaded! The 0% financing allowed me to afford this beauty, and the 7yr/70,000 mile powertrain warranty along with the standard 3/30K bumper-to-bumper warranty is the icing on the cake.
Even though I only have been driving it for a day (it has 14 miles on it right now) I wanted to describe my initial impressions.
The exterior looks fantastic! The instant I saw this car, I was very impressed with its looks. I am not a car enthusiast, and not knowing any better, this car would strike me as very luxurious, yet sporty.
The few criticisms I have heard about this car deal with the cheap construction of the interior. I do not agree at all. While some functions, such as the radio, are not located on the steering wheel like some cars offer today, I am very happy with how the interior looks. Taking into account the price of the car, I was very satisfied with the interior.
I love the autostick! Not knowing how to drive a stick shift, the autostick provides a great way to manually shift gears. While I wasn't initially going to get this feature, the car I bought had it and I didn't pay too much more for it. If you are looking to get maximum performance from this car, especially from a stop, the definitely get the autostick.
The only slight criticism I can find (so far) is with the driver's seat. I am a taller driver at about 6"1' and I wish the power seats would go a little more back. Still, the way it is now is not bad.
Those are my initial comments. Anybody else think similarly/differently?
I can't speak for the coupe, but on my '01 convertible - shut the lights before ignition off and lights will turn off immediately; turn off the ignition before turning off lights and lights will stay on for about 90 seconds. If you leave them on I don't think they will shut off, but the chime should sound as a reminder if you open the car door with the lights on.
I think you are right. I was used to not having to worry about whether the lights were on or off, but I guess I know have to be more aware about it. Too bad, I hope I don't forget one time and drain the battery. Oh well, everything else about the Sebring coupe is great!
Just bought my first car this past weekend, and after much research, found one in the Dallas area. 98 JXi, 79k miles, Gold, $8,500. The car seems to be in great shape and I just pray I put my money into a winner, since I will be paying on it for a while to come. Although, I did see a few problems with it, such as the "Service Engine Soon" light came on right after I left the dealer's lot and gassed up...the dealership is saying it should be fine and that it might be from the gas cap, but I am still taking it in for warranty. Also, I can't seem to turn the fog lights on...dunno if they are out or if I'm just a little slow at car switches and buttons. Also, I have noticed a little hop in changing of gears from 1st to 2nd, but I guess, from what I've read, that's normal. So, for now, I'm happy driving it around here in Austin with the top down, especially in this hot weather. Anything I should know? Everything welcome...
