Chrysler is creating inspiration in the common car, introducing the 2007 Chrysler Sebring. An all-new mid-size sedan, Chrysler Sebring builds on the winning formula begun with the award-winning Chrysler 300 in the large car segment, and more recently, the all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber in the compact car segment. This formula combines stunning design with interior craftsmanship, high-levels of safety and reliability, exhilarating performance and excellent fuel efficiency, all at a surprisingly affordable price. Sebring also features many class-leading technologies not available in the mid-size segment.

See You Never: Cars We Don't Want To See Come Back

See You Never: Cars We Don’t Want To See Come Back

These disasters are better off left in the woodshed

The auto industry has had its share of iconic cars. From iconic classics like the Aston Martin DB5 and the Ferrari 250 GTO to timeless beauties like the Mazda MX-5 and Porsche 911, there are no shortages of cars that we can kneel before and proudly say that we did. But for every model like the BMW 3 Series that capture our hearts and imaginations, there are also models like the Pontiac Aztec and the Studebaker Wagonaire that force us to question our lots in life. These cars are the stinkers of the auto industry, and whether you like it or not, we’ve come up with a list of them that we never, under any circumstances, want to see make a comeback.

I know what you’re thinking. Why are we subjecting you to this kind of horror on Thanksgiving week? Well, appreciating the history of the industry will only be magnified if you know its underbelly, the dark and desolate place where the worst models in history reside, never to be seen again. Our hope here is that when you take a gander and look at the cars on this list, you’ll come out of it with a better appreciation of all the success stories that the industry has seen throughout its history. So buckle up, ladies and gentlemen. We’re going to test your tolerance with this list; here’s to hoping you all come out unscathed on the other side.

2011 Dodge Avenger

2011 Dodge Avenger

Dodge’s Avenger and it’s Chrysler Sebring compatriot may have been the two most-reviled mid-size sedans on the planet in 2010. For 2011, a major overhaul of both models—and a new moniker for the Sebring—aim to change that.

Armed with an available new V-6 and a new interior, the Avenger is but one of several Chrysler or Dodge products that has either been redesigned or refreshed for 2011. As it pulls out of bankruptcy and tries to make its marriage with Fiat work, Chrysler Group desperately needs the Avenger and 200 to be a hit in the mid-size class. Can the Avenger be lifted out of the basement and brought up to play with the rest of the group?

Chrysler Sebring convertible to survive

Chrysler Sebring convertible to survive

Much to our surprise here at TopSpeed, Fiat has decided to keep the Sebring convertible alive. They are even giving it a major refresh early next year and boy, does it need it. The Sebring and the Dodge Avenger sedans are due for some updates before the end of the year and the Sebring could be getting a new name. There have also been reports that the new Sebring will be built in Italy.

Most of the changes that will take place on the two cars will include a reworked suspension and improved interiors. Chrysler’s new Pentastar V6 will be in the convertible next year.

Take a step back to the 1990’s and you will find Sebrings everywhere, as it was the best selling convertible in America. This was down to its low price and decent styling. The current model took all of that and threw it away. It combines the negative areas of the sedan, and there are many to choose from, plus poor styling.

So, why would any car company want to keep this convertible alive? Well, according to AllPar, it’s because they are a rental fleet favorite in warm weather climates. So, Chrysler can thank vacationers for driving the Sebring convertible because, chances are, nobody else will.

Chrysler Sebring will be replaced by Nassau

Chrysler Sebring will be replaced by Nassau

Let’s face it, the Chrysler Sebring needed to go. Criticized for its cheap materials and horrible quality, the Sebring was, simply put, unsuccessful. So when we heard that Chrysler was going to rid itself of the Sebring, we weren’t at all surprised. What threw us a little, however, was the new car’s name. The freshened up mid-sized sedan will now be called the Nassau. This name was used for the first time on the concept car revealed by Chrysler in 2007. Of course, the production version will look nothing like the concept, but Chrysler hopes it will give them a chance to match up to its mid-sized competitors in the market today.

"If you look at the Sebring and benchmark it against the competition, it’s not where it needs to be,’ CEO Sergio Marchionne said at this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

Chrysler designers have been working on completely new interiors for the 2011 Chrysler Nassau and the Dodge Avenger. Not only will the interiors be brand spanking new, but the exteriors will look substantially different as well. The 2011 Nassau will be offered with a choice of 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a new V6 Pentastar engine.

Hopefully, Chrysler will learn from the debacle that was the Sebring and invest (crazy four letter word for some automakers) in better quality materials and engineering. We don’t think they can afford any other flops.

Chrysler prepares to replace Sebring and Avenger

Chrysler prepares to replace Sebring and Avenger

After Fiat has bought Chrysler, the first decision is to replace the models that are considered as being unsuccessful in Chrysler line-up: Sebring and Avenger. Both models will be replaced by a model based on the Chrysler 200C EV.

Production version could be based on either the LX platform that was used for the concept and that can be built in both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. The second choice is Fiat’s D-Evo platform used for the 2011 replacement for the Alfa Romeo 159.

Sources say Chrysler is interested in the shortened LX platform and would not necessarily build the concept as shown. Also, the D-Evo suspension would likely be used on the LX platform. But if the concept was rear-drive, the production version could be a FWD model, because a RWD model is not good for the fuel economy.

2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Limited

2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Limited

Back in 1985, Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca asked his engineers to build him a convertible out of a K-Car. Production convertibles in the early 80s had been absent from the North American market due to safety concerns, and Iacocca wanted a car he could enjoy for the summertime. Iacocca claims that wherever he went people were interested in the car. This left enough of an impression on him that the next year the Le Barron convertible was born, and ended a nearly fourteen-year drought of convertibles for Chrysler.

Our Chrysler Sebring Limited is a descendent of that original rebirth of the American convertible, and this car shows it. Just like how American cars are best known, the Sebring is big and roomy convertible with a plush ride.

Sebring replacement will be built on shared platform?

Sebring replacement will be built on shared platform?

The Chrysler Sebring and the Dodge Avenger have long been a disappointment to Chrysler. As it comes time to change them, Chrysler is looking to replace the mid-sizers with a quality product in the least expensive way possible. There are three ways to go with the future cars, but all will likely ditch the Mitsubishi platform the twins are based on now. First option is for Chrysler to develop its own new platform. The second idea is to use either Fiat’s premium platform, or Nissan’s midsize (Altima), with distinct sheetmetal. The third option is using more than just the platform, and include the Fiat or Nissan firewall, A-pillar and windshield, kind of like Volkswagen’s new Routan minivan, based on the Chrysler minivans. In the end it’s likely that there will be less products to choose from as Chrysler well drop the four-door Sebring from the line up.

What do you think? What is the best move for Chrysler to make the Sebring more successful?

Top 10 Hardtop Convertibles for 2007

Metal-roofed convertibles are sturdier, safer, and offer better handling and a dramatically quieter ride than any ragtop. They are sexy, unsafe, pricey, cramped, and eminently unsuitable for families.
As a result, many prospective car buyers just glance at them longingly in the showroom before driving off in a minivan or crossover. But safety is increasingly less of a factor. That’s because these days auto makers offer convertibles with the sensuality of a ragtop and the solidity of a (...)

2006 - 2007 Chrysler Sebring

Ownership

Having been produced for years, the Sebring should serve well, as any production issues should have been worked by now. Nevertheless, resale value has taken a hit due to the domestic automakers offering incentives over the past three years. The standard warranty is hardly class leading, at three years/36,000 miles, but similar to most of Chrysler’s rivals. Check the IntelliChoice Five-Year Cost of Ownership closely, as many Sebring models and trim levels fall in the “Worse than Average” or “Poor” ratings range.
Final Word

Sebring is a decent, midsize car line that has held on for years without a significant redesign, amid newer, exceptional competitors. The new TSi is notable for bringing sport to the range, but the standout is the four-place convertible. This drop-top has been a leading seller, with precious few true competitors.
