#140 of 149 Re: convertable top adjustment on 01 model [jstuart1]
Jan 20, 2012 (9:30 am)
I have a 1997 Chrysler SEbring convertable, my roof rattles once I latch it down. I have adjusted the latch hooks to there max, and still have rattleing (although reduced). I noticed that the latch placement seats have come loose or moved out from the top of windshield ( were the pins seat). Is there a way to correct this?
#141 of 149 make top quieter
May 27, 2012 (11:23 am)
I have had my 2001 Sebring Ltd for 4 years. It is quieter than the JXI on the highway, but I need to make quite a few long road trips soon and I would like to dramatically reduce the wind noise. I have tightened the screws to the top. Can it be resealed? Any other tips?
#143 of 149 Sebring touring edition soft-top malfunction
Jun 15, 2012 (4:09 pm)
I own a 2006 Sebring, Touring, convertible... When I try to fold the top back, it stalls and slowly bends back down in despite of pressing the button to fold. Im thinking it has to do with the hydraulics but I'm not sure. Can anybody help?

#147 of 149 Convertible Window rattle
Mar 11, 2013 (11:51 am)
I have a 2004 Sebring Limited convertible that I bought new. Has been the best car I have ever owned. My only complaint is that when the top is up and especially in cold weather, the side windows rattle incessantly. This is quite annoying. Does anyone have any ideas for a solution to this problem.

I had(have) an very annoying rattle....on any bumpy street....used velcro in both place where top does into panel....(in front) ....helps a lot....generally I often take the top and pull it to the right(manually) as it is going down to align it properly..again this helps love the car ...we have had several sebring..this is a 2002 LLXI which we have had since 2003....was thinking about buying a mustang...but, despite the negative reviews, we have no had any problem with Chrysler..maybe we will get a 200

Ive had a 2004,2008 and now a 2009 touring conv(all soft tops) All in all this is a good car for the money.I have 90K on it now with very few issues.one issue is the squeeky top. The new design 2008 and up if better than the earlier versions. a lot of people complain about.dont waste your time and effort trying to fix it,just part of what most american convertibles are all about. The squeeks and rattles are usually very minor,but they are there.Aside from that its a very quite car for a convertible.We live in AZ and have the top down every day,and up and down at least half a dozen times a day.
problems to look out for
1- These cars have some electrical gremlims (like the radio that cuts out for a second when putting the top up or down) and the micro switches for the top stop working suddenly and then reset in a little while and work again. hopefully these happen when the top is either all the up or down. I would not bother to try and repair that issue unless it stops for good. Ours has done this on both the 08 and 09 for most of the 90K miles we put on them.
The front strut mounts tend to go bad,then you get a little rattle in the front end,change the struts and the mounts
The 2.7 has a sludge issue,especially the earlier versions. I use full synthetic and change every 4000 miles
also. make sure you change "all" the fluids every 50K max, trans fluid,ps fluid,coolent,brake fluid. Do this and you shoud get 150-175k out of the car. this is the most important thing you can do
Brakes- The brake system on this car really sucks.The rotors go out of round very easily when they overheat just once. I get my brakes at brake masters.lifetime on the pads,1 year on the rotors. after about 35K you will need new front pads, then new rotors at about 50 or 60.if you get the brakes don,make sure they have at least a year warranty against the rotors getting out of round.they should turn the rotors for free up to a year
Thats all I can think of, hope this helps
