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.
Chrysler is raising the roof on the convertible segment, introducing the all-new 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. This completely redesigned Sebring Convertible is built on the company’s new D-segment platform and offers what no other convertible on the road can offer: Chrysler’s sleek and elegant design, exhilarating performance with excellent fuel efficiency, a spacious interior that comfortably sits four adults and enough room in the trunk to hold two golf bags, even when the top is dropped.
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.
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.
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.
The Chrysler Sebring Sedan is an attractive choice in the ultra-competitive mid-size sedan market. Chrysler adds pizzazz to the lineup with a new sport version of its award-winning Sebring Sedan for 2006. Sporty and spirited, with improved on-road performance, a limited number of Chrysler Sebring Sedan TSi vehicles will be available throughout the 2006 model year.
