Chrysler Sebring Convertible

No Comment

Any ideas as to what’s up?

A: Check the drain outlets in the floor. if they are clogged, water will build-up in the car instead of draining out. There should be a on the right and left, just in front of the rear wheels. Good luck.

Q: 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible- What’s the problem with the car?
Hi, I will try to give as many details as possible about my 1996 Chrysler Sebring JXI convertible.

It has about 100,000 miles on it. One day, the “service engine soon” area near the speedometer lit up. I planned to service the engine, but the next day, the car would not start (battery completely shot- no noise when I turned the key in the ignition).

I jumped it and it was back to normal- I ran it long enough, I thought, to make sure it kept the charge. I also got the battery checked out at a mechanic, and the mechanic said it was fine. The car was running ok for a few days and the oil icon was lit up (I planned to change the oil as a result). Now, it won’t start again and I am planning to jump it when I get back home from work. But I am wondering… what exactly is the problem with the car? Is it the battery? Is it something else?


A: It’s really hard to get the battery out of your Sebring to test it.Maybe you already know that the left front wheel is in the way of an access panel that is screwed in to the fender liner.Then the battery is bolted in a tight spot making it a serious effort to remove.The battery needs to come out of there for testing,but by the sound of’s probably 95% worn out anyway from being discharged too much.The alternator should be verified too.

Q: Is it possible to swap for a bigger engine in my chrysler sebring convertible?
I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible i was wondering if it is possible to put in a bigger engine in the Sebring weather it be a bigger v6 or even a v8 engine this is a question that i have been trying tofind an answer to but just can’t seem to find.

A: Anything is possible if you have the money or know how. Short answer is no unless you own a race shop wherer you can make a race car. V8 will never fit. it is a FWD car. You won’t get any V8 to work with it. V6 would have to be a newer one to be more powerful and the transmission would have to match it. If you are able to build a car from scratch then you probably could. Otherwise, no chance.

Q: What options do I have to change out the radio on a 2008 chrysler sebring convertible?
On a 2008 chrysler sebring convertible what options do I have for the radio. The dealer said I could buy the u-connect for $1,000 but he said it would be cheaper just to get a bluetooth system put in. What double din in dash system would be compatible?

A: Your options would be getting a built in Navigation System which can put in through the Radio and would defiantly have Blu-Tooth, whitch would be around $1500-2500. Best Buy would have where they will put them in from radio to nav. Go to or

Q: Is there MP3 capability in the basic Chrysler Sebring Convertible?
I’m renting a convertible from Avis in Phoenix. I’m leaving in 2 days and am wondering if I have to burn Cd’s or if there is an aux ? for connecting my Sansa?
I’m unsure as to which convertible I will get, all they said was Ford Mustang or Chrysler Sebring. Also an unsure as too the model year rental companies keep in their fleet.
Thanks much!

Sedona AZ! Here we come!

A: Burn cds or get a mp3 plug in transmitter.

Q: Is the Chrysler sebring convertible hardtop?
On the first page, it says hardtop but then when I tried to build my own, it said cloth top.
Thank you very much in advance! :)
And would you recommend this car?
The new, 2009 model that is online on the link that I have. If I get it, I am getting it in September. I am deciding between a couple different cars right now.

A: It is available both ways. Certain trim levels may only be available with the cloth top. For instance, if there’s a 4cyl and a v6, you maybe can only get the hardtop with the V6.

Q: Getting a new Chrysler Sebring Convertible?
I was going to get me a new Chrysler Sebring Convertible. Does anybody happen to own one? I was wanting to know some of the features and experience you have had from these. Please only good experiences. So do you own a Chrysler Sebring Convertible and what features/experiences have you had with it?
It does not have to be a brand new one, as I might get a used one.

A: you might try renting one for a weekend to see if you like it long term….test drives are fine,but you cant tell how the cars gonna be day to day…buying a used one would be a better choice than new….they depreciate alot in value when you drive them off the new car lot…

Q: I am probably going to purchase a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. What should I look for when inspecting?
I am inexperienced when it comes to purchasing a car. I found a good deal on a Sebring convertible- I am wondering what I should look at/for when checking out the car. It has slightly upwards of 100,000 miles, by the way.


A: you would want to make sure it doesn’t use oil and that there isn’t any problems engine wise then check out all the seals. like the seal around the windshield and the door windows thats very important . and if it doesn’t need any of those and has good tires, springs and shocks you’ll have a good deal in that car when you buy it

Q: What do you think about buying a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible for $5000.00?
I need to buy a used car in the $5000.00 range and have come across a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible for that price. The car is clean runs well etc. What is the history on these cars, engine and transmission wise? I don’t want to make a bad decision because the car looks good and runs good. Thanks !

A: sounds like alot for a 9 year old car and how many miles are on it.if you buy it the first thing i would do is have the tranny fluid changed.the engines are not that powerfull and make sure its not burning oil,drive it a good distance and make sure when its good and warm its not smoking out the tail pipe.have someone stand behind the car rev it up a couple of times and see if its burning oil if it is walk away.i see alot of those cars burning oil when people are driving around.

Q: How should I pimp out my Chrysler Sebring convertible?
Ok so I bought a crappy little 98 Chrysler Sebring JXI… I cleaned it up and want to make it look freakin cool without breaking the bank. I’m only 16 so I really don’t have a huge budget… any ideas?

A: look bro just put some subs in the back thats it cuse when you try and make a sebring look good you make it look worse

Q: How much luggage space does a convertible Chrysler Sebring have?
My family and I will be travelling to California this summer and have decided to rent a convertible Chrysler Sebring. We are, however, concerned with its luggage capacity. About how many large, medium or small luggages can be placed in its trunk?

A: You should be fine… With the top down, Chrysler proudly touts that you could still fit 2 golf bags in the trunk… 4 with the top up. I guess you could equate that to a large suitcase with several smaller ones around it with the top down – or a bunch of medium ones.

Will you be driving around often with ALL of your luggage in the trunk??? Leave the junk at the hotel then put the top down… :-)

Q: Is a 04′ Chrysler Sebring Convertible a good first car?
when i turn sixteen, i’m getting my dads old 04 chrysler sebring convertible.
i have to buy it from him when i eventually get the money.
do you think its worth buying it from him? or should i save up to get another car?

A: not bad. since you are young, you are likely to get into an accident though and the convertible is not safe if you somehow flip it (this happens – i remember several girls in high school who flipped thier cars).

Not sure of the gas mielage on sebring either. You probably want something fun, but if you’re looking to go safe & economical, check out a toyota corolla.

Q: Would you buy a Chrysler Sebring Convertible?
I have a 2001 Honda Accord in great shape with 81,000 miles on it. Nothing wrong with it. I just want (not need) a new convertible. Anyone with anything to say on a Sebring, good or bad would be most helpfu! Thanks!

A: You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here –

Q: Whats a cool color blue to paint my chrysler sebring convertible?
I want to change the color of my car from green to blue but im not sure what shade of blue would look best with a tan convertible top.

A: Smart is right on the color, but you had better think long and hard about a repaint, remember that when a car repaint in done in most cases, what you see is what is painted, NOT the inside of the car nor the engine compartment,nor the trunk, that is a lot extra money and blue and green do look weird

Q: Is my 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible top made of vinyl or fabric?
I’m discovering that you need to use different products on the top based on whether it’s made of vinyl or fabric. I assume it’s made of vinyl b/c it feels more like vinyl than fabric to me, but I don’t know what fabric convertible tops feel like. And do you have any recommended protectant products?

A: The Original Material for the 1996-2004 Chrysler Sebring is the Sailcloth Vinyl, Sonnedecke (thicker cloth), or Stayfast (cloth)
