I went on a test drive with my brother in a 98 Sebring Convertible.
He is considering trading in his car for it.

It is a 98, about 48,000 mi, and in good shape. I think the dealer went down to $9,500 - which is below blue book value.

Does anyone here have a Sebring? Any known issues with a 98?
Should we look for something newer?

I'm not real familiar with Sebrings - so I wanted to see what others thought about this.

Good deal? Any reason not to buy?

Thanks for the input guys!

He actually signed for a 2001 Concorde tonight!

He's one of us now! Muhahaha.

I'm going to try to get him to visit DI.NET.

From what I've read on the Sebring forums (almost bought one, might still buy one) the Sebring convertible is a fairly reliable, tight car. It leans a lot in corners but grips acceptably. It doesnt accelerate strongly but is fairly adequate for a front-drive boulevard cruiser.

And of course, its visually stunning! Im considering a winter car, and the Sebring might be perfect for winter (FWD) while still being useful for perfect sunny days.

I thought it leaned some - I think it's ride is closer to a cruiser/luxury car - not a sports car. It's not bad.

Not as fast as I'd like - but then again.... I'm not sure if I'd want a FAST convertible.

I was hoping he'd buy it so I could borrow it for road trips - with the top down.

I need to figure out my squeeky right wheel.....

That's ironic that you need new pads - given where you work. :biggrin:
