Chrysler Sebring 2007 review

It has been a long wait for the Chrysler Sebring, with the promise of affordable family motoring with an American twist, but now it is here.

The Sebring looks different to anything else in the mid-sized class, dominated by the home-grown Toyota Camry and Mitsubishi 380.

It has a much chunkier body and an aggressive nose that sits comfortably alongside the successful 300C. Its name is from an American racing circuit in Florida, which has been home to sports-car contests since the 1950s.

But the Sebring is more pedestrian than full-on fast, though other Sebring models with fewer doors will follow.

It is priced from $33,990 with a huge amount of standard equipment that ranges from six airbags and electronic stability control to a cupholder in the centre console that can be cooled to 1.6C and heated to 60C, almost hot enough for cooking.

The most popular option is expected to be a thing called MyGIG.

For $3500 it gives you a regulation big-screen satnav system and a 20-gigabyte hard-disc drive with a jukebox system for music and pictures.

The Sebring has a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine and front-wheel-drive, four-wheel disc brakes, fully independent suspension and power steering. The engine is no powerhouse, with 125kW and 220Nm, and is also held back by a four-speed automatic in a class where a self-shifting five-speed is the benchmark.

There is a V6 but, like too many Chrysler newcomers, the mid-sizer has landed with the four, which means the first impression is nowhere near as strong as it could be.

Chrysler is going in hard with 'surprise and delight' features, packing in heated leather seats, LED cabin lights, a tilt-telescope steering column, audio controls on the steering wheel and much more.

There are two models, the Touring and the Limited. The $37,490 headliner has a sunroof, premium sound, 18-inch alloy wheels, headlamp washers and better interior trim.

Both cars score high on safety, with airbags, electronic stability control, a rear-vision mirror that dims automatically, and windows and sunroof with auto-reverse triggered by a trapped arm or head.

On the road

The Sebring is nothing special. I would like it to be a car, I would recommend to friends, and one that provides great driving enjoyment and quality. However, US engineers and designers have failed to deliver a real rival to the Camry and 380, let alone a class leader.

Part of the disappointment is down to the dozy engine and transmission, but the real failure is in the cabin.

There are lots of nice stuff, but the basics, hard-touch plastics, jagged edges and even a headlining that is not properly locked in place, are underdone.

That is because Chrysler is still a US carmaker geared to the needs and expectations of its domestic customers.

It still needs to be more global, and look at the sort of competition it faces in countries such as Australia, to make genuine progress.

What makes the Sebring so frustrating is that I know there is a V6. And that I have had the same basic cabin complaints since the Neon in the 1990s.

The performance is disappointing. It has no punch yet the gearbox has a sports manual shift, but no reason to use it.

However the Sebring returned outstanding economy during my run, which is one positive for the 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine.

The styling of the Sebring is impressive. It stands out in a crowd. It is also quiet, has nicely compliant suspension and plenty of room for five adults.

It is easy to park, the lights are good, the airconditioning works well and all the standard equipment makes a basic Camry look dull and underdone.

The starting price is good, too, even if it comes in a fair way beyond a basic Camry or 380.

And that is what it all comes back to, rivals. The line-up of medium family cars in Australia is impressive and makes for tough opposition. We start with the value-first Holden Epica and move on to costlier standouts including the Subaru Liberty and Honda Accord, as well as the locally made Camry and 380.

The bottom line

Newcomer with distinctive looks, but missing the performance and quality to win.


Fast facts

The Sebring sedan will be followed later this year by a coupe and a convertible.

A four-cylinder Chrysler Sebring finished last in our six-car February 2007 comparison of family sedans [“Familial Four-Doors”], mostly because of its weak driving dynamics and horsepower shortage. That made us wonder if the most-powerful Sebring—a 235-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 that ranks above the 189-hp, 2.7-liter V-6 and the base 173-hp inline-four—might have improved the result.

When the driver first plops down on the Sebring’s softly cushioned and unsupportive seats and looks at the two-tone Sun City interior, speed isn’t what comes to mind. But the power issue has definitely been addressed. Ignite the aluminum V-6, stomp the throttle, and 60 mph flashes by in 6.8 seconds. The six-speed automatic quickly shifts through its tightly spaced second and third gears and pushes the bulky body through the quarter-mile at 92 mph in 15.3 seconds. That’s solid performance for a $25,995 (the cost of a Sebring Limited with the optional V-6 and six-speed tranny) mid-size sedan, although a V-6 Honda Accord is 0.2 second quicker in both tests and is $200 cheaper.

Unfortunately, this big V-6 seems to have overcome only the power problem. The suspension is mushy, with springs that rebound about as quickly as a loaf of Wonder bread you’ve accidentally stepped on. The Sebring leans on its door handles on the skidpad, recording 0.79 g of grip on all-season tires, and stands on its nose while braking from 70 mph in 190 feet.

Instead of appealing to enthusiasts, Chrysler opts to thrill potential buyers with gadgets and utility. The six-speaker, six-CD-changer stereo sounds upscale in this price class. We enjoyed the standard swiveling map lights and the heating and cooling cup holder—it kept our Starbucks at 123 degrees—and loved the folding front seat that allows transport of items longer than nine feet. Among the options on our test car were 18-inch wheels ($250); the Luxury package that includes an interior air filter, chrome wheels, and heated seats ($1195); and stability control ($425). All good things, but we’d happily sacrifice them for a better suspension and more convincing handling.

Hoping that a radical redesign would do the same thing for its sleepy mid-size Sebring that the 300 did for the company
in the full-size class, Chrysler gave the Sebring an extreme makeover for 2007. Whereas the outgoing model was about as memorable as what you ate for breakfast last Wednesday, today's Sebring wears bold styling that has stirred up more than a little controversy. However, the car is undeniably better in every other respect, offering a choice of three engines, three trim levels and a slew of creature comforts never seen before in a mid-size Mopar sedan.

The inspiration behind the 2007 Sebring's styling is the slippery and beautiful Airflite five-door concept from 2003, which itself was inspired by the Crossfire coupe. Clear connections to the Airflite can be seen in the Sebring's straked hood, egg-crate grille, body sculpting, and stretched roofline. However, just as much was lost in translation as was kept when the big Airflite was shrunk into the Sebring, most notably the gorgeous boat tail rear end and fastback roofline. The result is awkward at best, just plain ugly at worst. Interestingly, Chrysler mentioned that among the Sebring's early design proposals was one that looked like a junior 300. That doesn't sound like such a bad thing, but they said it didn't work. And this one did.

More content

The story gets better inside. The Sebring's cavernous interior is an improvement, in spite of it being as frenetically styled as the exterior. Thanks to the Sebring's high roof and long, 108.9-inch wheelbase, there is plenty of room for four adults, five in a pinch. Assembly and material quality are light years ahead of the 2006 model, though still not on par with competitors like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The Sebring is unique, however, in offering cool, white LED interior lighting in higher trim levels, something we're seeing pop up all over the Chrysler lineup. Outward vision is enhanced by a driver hip point some two inches higher than in the outgoing model. The only ergonomic nit we can pick involves the sliding center armrest, which blocks one of the cupholders unless it's in the rearmost position.

The 2007 Sebring comes in three trims: base, Touring and Limited. Base (read: rental-spec) models won't blow anyone away in terms of feature content, but stepping up to the Touring adds dressier satin silver interior trim, a fold-flat front passenger seat, and YES-essentials stain- and odor-proof seat fabric, which features a stain repellent in the fabric itself (as opposed to an upholstery treatment) that, we're told, is impervious to pretty much anything from ketchup to grease to exploded Sharpie markers. The Limited adds leather upholstery, tortoise-shell/satin silver trim, and one other nifty feature: a cupholder capable of heating your latte to 140 degrees, or chilling your soda to just above freezing.

All Sebring stereos have auxiliary input jacks for iPods and the like, while optional SIRIUS satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a rear-seat video entertainment system all bring the Sebring up to par with the options list of its competitive set. Our favorite feature on the Sebring, however, which isn't available on any of its competitors, is Chrysler's new MyGIG voice-activated Harman/Kardon navigation/audio system, which includes a touch-screen, voice commands, available real-time traffic reports, and, best of all, a 20-GB hard drive capable of storing 1600 songs that you can upload from CDs, a flash drive, or even your laptop itself via a USB port in the faceplate. MyGIG also has a feature that allows you to upload eight jpeg photos, one of which can be selected to display as wallpaper on half of the display.

Mechanical enhancements

Similar improvements can be found under the 2007 Sebring's skin, starting with a body that is 1.7 times stiffer in torsion and 1.6 times stiffer in bending. Together with the numerous sound-deadening devices incorporated for the first time in the Sebring, cabin isolation from road and wind noise is excellent. The MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension is now firmer, creating ride-and-handling characteristics closer to its contemporaries such as the Saturn Aura and Mazda 6. Steering is a touch light, but reasonably precise.

Three engines are available for all Sebring trim levels, starting with a base 2.4-liter DOHC four-cylinder that produces 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. Chrysler's expected volume motor, carried over from the old Sebring, is a gruff-but-adequate SOHC 2.7-liter V-6 producing 190 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the range is a SOHC 3.5-liter V-6 with 235 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque. The latter engine naturally is the most spirited, thanks in part to the six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control (the others make do with a four-speed). Regardless of engine, no Sebring can be described as truly fun.

Perhaps the best news is the Sebring's price, which is lower across the board, starting at $18,995 for the base, $20,195 for the Touring and $23,995 for the Limited. All told, the 2007 Sebring is far improved, and, for better or worse, virtually unrecognizable relative to the outgoing model. Dodge's upcoming Avenger sedan wraps the Sebring's mechanical improvements in a more palatable wrapper. If you're a Mopar fan looking for something in this segment, we'd wait.

Chrysler Sebring

Not to be confused with Maserati Sebring.

Motor vehicle

The Chrysler Sebring (SEE-bring) is a line of mid-sizeautomobiles that was sold from 1995 through 2010 by Chrysler. Three generations of convertibles, two generations of sedans, and two generations of coupes were produced. Although the coupe shared the same name and some styling cues, it was mechanically unrelated to the other Sebring models.

The Sebring line was introduced in 1995 with the Chrysler Sebring coupe. It was the replacement for the Chrysler LeBaron coupe. In 1996 the convertible was introduced, replacing its LeBaron counterpart as well. For 2001, both body styles were redesigned and a sedan version was offered, replacing the Chrysler Cirrus. The coupe was discontinued after 2005 with no replacement model planned.

The redesigned sedan was introduced for 2007, and a convertible the following year. New options included all-wheel drive on sedans and an available retractable metal top for the convertible. All Sebring models were replaced by the Chrysler 200 for the 2011 model year.

The Chrysler Sebring was introduced as a coupe for 1995, and as a convertible in 1996, both models replacing the Chrysler LeBaron convertible and coupe. The convertible was built off the Chrysler JA platform also used for the Cirrus sedan, while the coupe was based on the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The Chrysler Sebring was named after Sebring, Florida, the site of the renowned endurance car race called the 12 Hours of Sebring. The name was first used by Chrysler Corporation's Plymouth division trim line of the Satellitemid-sizecoupe of the 1970s.

Coupe (1995–2000)[edit]

1997–2000 Chrysler Sebring coupe

The 1995 through 2000 Chrysler Sebringcoupe was the successor to the Chrysler LeBaron coupe.

The first generation Sebring coupe was introduced in April 1995, several months after the related Dodge Avenger.[1] Despite its similarities to the Avenger, Chrysler's suspension was tuned slightly on the softer side compared to Dodge's stiff suspension. Although the Sebring did not really offer true "off-the-line" muscle, it did handle well over long, curvy roads, offering minimal body roll. LXi models further benefited from rear sway bars, a slightly different tuned fully independent suspension, along with 17-inch wheels wrapped with Goodyear Eagle performance tires. Recorded slalom speeds proved to be impressive for a car of its class, and were a result of Sebring's 4-wheel double wishbone suspension and variable speed rack and pinion steering; both of which were key contributors to the car's road manners.

The coupe version of the Sebring had seating for five and was considered to be one of the larger, more roomy coupes on the market. Trunk capacity was similar to that of many mid-size cars, capable of handling more than one set of golf clubs. At the time of its introduction, the Sebring sported a crosshair grille, reminiscent of the original Chrysler 300 letter series. The grille was non-functional, with the lower half under the bumper used for airflow intake in a "bottom breather" function.

The Sebring coupe was built on a Mitsubishi Motors platform shared by the Eagle Talon, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Mitsubishi Galant, and Dodge Avenger. They share a great deal with their Talon sibling, including much of their dash and instrument panel along with most mechanical components. Parts of the Sebring coupe cannot interchange with the sedan or convertible, which were not built by Mitsubishi.

1997–2000 Chrysler Sebring coupe

The Sebring underwent a minor facelift for 1997. Its grille was replaced with a slightly larger black grid. The facelift also made the Sebring the first car to use Chrysler's "wings" logo. The 1997 restyle also saw the addition of ribbed lower body cladding and new wheel styles. Features offered on Sebring coupes included 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, adaptive automatic transmissions and fully independent suspensions, along with a host of power-operated features. Sebring also offered variable speed rack and pinion steering, 17 inch aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle tires, 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, one-touch power windows, one-touch moonroof, electrochromic mirror with compass, power accessory delay ignition (which allowed occupants to operate power window switches when the ignition is turned off), and Homelink universal transmitter, among other options.

The Sebring coupe received a 5-star frontal safety rating, the highest rating possible. First-generation body style coupes continued to be sold past the 2000 model year to select export markets.

Trim levels:

  • LX — 1995–2000
  • LXi — 1995–2000

Convertible (1996–2000)[edit]

Chrysler Sebring convertible

The Chrysler Sebring convertible was launched in 1996 alongside the Sebring coupe, replacing the LeBaron convertible. The convertible didn't share any parts with the coupe and was instead based on the Chrysler Cirrus sedan. Consequently, both the Cirrus and the Sebring convertible were sold in Europe as the Stratus. All Stratus convertibles were sourced from Mexico. The Chrysler Stratus convertible was actually available in Mexico, but the sedan version was not. The Sebring convertible was sold alongside the Chrysler Stratus convertible in Mexico. In Mexico, a turbocharged 2.4 L DOHC I4 engine was optional.

Trim levels:

  • JX — 1996–2000

The Sebring name was then used on three different cars for 2001: the coupe was based on the Mitsubishi Eclipse, while the sedan and convertible were Chrysler JR platform successors to the Chrysler Cirrus. The 2004 Chrysler Sebring had received minor tweaks to its front-end: a redesigned grille, reworked headlights, and a Chrysler winged emblem placed in the center on the rear deck; furthermore, after the 2004 Chrysler Sebring sedan had seen a mild cycle refresh, the company discontinued the Chrysler Sebring coupe after the model 2005 year. Outside of the United States, and Canada, over into Mexico, the Sebring was sold as the Chrysler Cirrus. Exclusive for the Cirrus was the availability of Chrysler's turbocharged 2.4 L DOHC engine. The Cirrus available as a sedan, and convertible body styles. Models with this engine are identified with a "High Output" badge on the back of the vehicle. Also unique to the Cirrus was the number of trim levels; the sedan was offered in two while the convertible was only offered in one. All were equipped with an automatic transmission.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the 2001–2006 Sebring an Acceptable overall rating in frontal crash tests.[3] In the side impact test, a Poor overall rating was given to models without side airbags. The IIHS did not test the Sebring with side airbags since Chrysler declined another test.[4]

For 2001, the Sebring Convertible was restyled. It now closely resembled the sedan, and continued to be built on the same platform as the sedan. Many interior and exterior components were carried over from the first-generation car. The Sebring received minor styling revisions (mostly the appearance of the nose) for the 2004 model year.


2003–2005 Chrysler Sebring coupe

A redesigned Sebring Coupe was introduced for the 2001 model year, based on the third-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse. Like the previous generation, the coupe shared very little in common with the sedan or the convertible, other than the name and a few exterior styling cues to help market all three vehicles together as one model.

The Sebring Coupe received a minor facelift for 2003, and was discontinued after the 2005 model-year. The redesigned 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible was considered the replacement for the Sebring coupe.

European versions[edit]

Chrysler also manufactured export versions of the 2001-2006 Sebring sedan and convertible for the mainland European market. Front and rear lights are to European standards, different from the USA & Canada in that turn-signal indicators are orange, with additional side-turn repeaters on the front fenders. The rear bumper has a larger recess for the longer European-size license plates, and two rear fog-lamps are fitted; one on each side of the license plate. The LHD headlamps incorporate Euro-type H4 bulbs, together with three-way up and down beam-level adjustment via a dash-mounted switch to the left of the steering wheel. Emissions controls are to the EURO 3 standard; later versions are compliant with EURO 4. Engine ranges offered were the 2.0 L DOHC 16V inline 4-cylinder (later replaced by the 2.4L unit in some countries), and the 2.7 L DOHC 24V 6-cylinder unit. The 2.0 and 2.4L engines are available with the 5-speed manual or four-speed 41TE auto transmission (depending on the country); the six-cylinder engine is automatic only.

The Canadian-market 240 km/h-160 mph speedometer (with km/h predominant) is fitted to the European models. The odometer and trip meter are in kilometers. As the 2001-2006 Sebring sedan and convertible were made in left-hand drive only, they were not sold in the UK and Ireland. Chrysler UK did, however, import 50 convertibles with the 2.7L engine in 2001/2002, and these were sold through selected dealers. Being non-standard in Chrysler's UK range at the time though, no more were imported.

Trim levels offered in Europe were LE (equivalent to North American market LX) and LX (equivalent to North American market LXi). From 2004, Touring and Limited versions started to replace the LE and LX designations respectively.

Lack of a diesel engine and right-hand drive availability prevented this Sebring from being a true pan-European model unlike other Chryslers such as the Chrysler 300M, PT Cruiser, and Voyager. In addition, the model was dropped from Chrysler's lineup in some countries, notably France, before production ended in 2006. In France, the three domestic car-makers PSA-Peugeot, Citroen, and Renault dominate the new car market, which meant very low sales of the Sebring there. As a result, the sedan was only imported by Chrysler France in 2001 and 2002. The 2003 and facelifted 2004–2006 year models were not. The convertible was only sold until 2004. The 2005 and 2006 models were likewise not imported.

Despite not being available in the UK and Ireland, some Sebring convertibles have been bought in from the U.S. as grey-imports. Some Euro-spec models have also been privately imported, mostly from Germany. The European versions are easier to re-register in the UK as they have EU-type approval. The dual km/h-mph speedo-display and twin rear foglights mean only headlamp beam-aim adjustment for left-hand traffic is necessary. The sedan is much rarer in the UK though; a few EU models have been imported, but most are likely to be North American 'grey-imports'.

Volga Siber[edit]

Main article: GAZ Volga Siber

In 2006, the license, tooling and assembly line for the second-generation Chrysler Sebring/Dodge Stratus sedan was sold to Russian firm GAZ for about US$151 million (€ 124 million). After some minor modifications the vehicle was renamed the Volga Siber. It went into production in March 2008 at the Gorky Automobile Plant in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.[5] However, due to the Great Recession sales were not as expected and production ended in 2010 after 9,000 examples were built.

The Sebring was replaced with a new model based on the JS platform for the 2007 model year. The third-generation Sebring was assembled in Sterling Heights, Michigan, containing over 82% of parts sourced in North America. Since no 2007 convertible was offered, the 2006 Sebring convertible was left to fill the void, remaining in showrooms and on the company's website until the 2008 model's release. The third-generation Sebring borrowed many styling cues from the 2003 Chrysler Airfliteconcept. It also has several Chrysler-signature styling cues, several of which were borrowed from the Chrysler Crossfire. The Sebring sedan and convertible were also sold in right-hand drive through Chrysler's UK and Ireland dealer network.

2007 Chrysler Sebring sedan

Chrysler offered three engines for the 2007 Sebring; the 2,360 cc (2.36 L; 144 cu in) GEMAI4, the 2,736 cc (2.736 L; 167.0 cu in) EERV6, and the 3,518 cc (3.518 L; 214.7 cu in) EGF V6.[6] The 3.5 L V6 is coupled to Chrysler's first ever six-speed automatic transmission, which employs Autostick technology, and the 2.7 L V6 is capable of running on cleaner-burning E85. Export vehicles will be offered with a 2.0 L turbochargedPDTDI (pumpe düse) diesel made by Volkswagen and the 2.0 L GEMA engine.[7] The 3.5 L V6 sedan is available with all-wheel drive as an extra cost option for 2008 only.

Trim levels:

  • base — 2007
  • LX — 2008 (replaced base)
  • Touring — (2007–2010)
  • Limited AWD — (2008)
  • Limited — (2007–2010)

In 2008, the optional MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System became available. In addition, the Limited received the 2.4 L four-cylinder engine and was priced at the same level as the 2008 Touring model. Also for 2009, the rear badge placements were modified. For the model 2010 year, the hood was redesigned, eliminating the longitudinal grooves. The IIHS gave the 2010 Models a G for good in the frontal crash test, the side impact test, and the roof strength test, giving the 2010 Sebring a Top Safety Pick.


2008-2010 Chrysler Sebring

For the 2008 model year, the Sebring convertible was redesigned with hood strakes recalling the Chrysler Crossfire. The new convertible body style debuted at the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto Show as an early-2008 model.[8] It was the second bestselling four-place open-top cars in the United States, trailing only the Ford Mustang convertible.[9]

The new convertible offered both a retractable hardtop and soft tops, with the Sebring's roofs manufactured by Karmann. A vinyl top came on the base LX model, a cloth roof on the Touring and Limited models with the option of a retractable metal top. The convertible top retracts into the trunk with a power tonneau cover and a luggage protector for the top. The top can also be retracted with the remote keyless entry, meaning the top can be stowed without being inside the car or starting the engine.

The LX model included a new 2.4 L I4 engine, the Touring version came with a retuned version of the 2.7 L V6, while the Limited featured a new 3.5 L V6. Unlike the Sebring sedan, the convertible was not available in all-wheel drive.

Chinese versions[edit]

Production of the Chrysler Sebring sedan for the China market began in 2007 at the Beijing-Benz DaimlerChrysler Automotive Co. (BBDC) in Beijing. BBDC is a joint venture between the Beijing Automotive Industry Holding and Chrysler.

Production of the Sebring leveraged assembly capacity for the new BBDC plant which also built the Chrysler 300C, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Mitsubishi Outlander.

Four-cylinder World Engines for the Sebring were built at the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA) plant in Dundee, Michigan for export to China. GEMA began as a joint venture of Chrysler, Mitsubishi, and Hyundai. Since 2009, GEMA is wholly owned by Chrysler.

European version[edit]

Chrysler introduced this generation Sebring in the European markets (including right-hand drive markets) as their first competitor in the D-segment. It received a generally unfavorable reception from European motoring journalists.

European reviews[edit]

Mid-cycle refresh and replacement[edit]

Main article: Chrysler 200 § First generation (2011–2014)

The Chrysler Sebring was extensively refreshed in 2010, but was rebadged as the Chrysler 200. The JS platform and bodyshell had been retained, but there were extensive cosmetic and powertrain changes to the vehicle. The name change helped distance the vehicle from the Sebring's reputation for quality issues and fleet pervasiveness.[18]

In total, I counted six orgasms, after which the young man finished. He finished long and violently. Then they both fell onto the bed. There were still a few paid minutes left in stock.

Thank you. See you. The interrupted dream brought her to a feeling of cheerfulness, intensifying all the same animal desire that tormented her so much in the morning. Having put. On a summer short and slightly flying dark dress, her curls are incredibly beautifully scattered on her back.

The sun continued to heat, and she took off her jacket, hanging it over her shoulder. I did the same with my jacket. And then I saw her stumble and fall to the ground, her heel broke. I ran up to her and asked: What's the matter. She sat down on the sidewalk and grabbed her ankle.
