Sebring LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

This car was very promising from Chrysler but again they either scrimp on the engine and transmission or the suspension. In this case I had both a 2000 with the Mitsubishi engine and the 2001 with the Dailmer Chrysler 2.7. The issues I encountered were the lower control arms. I had to replace them twice, thank goodness my auto supply gave a life time warranty on the first set. I also had the same problem that was reported with the rear struts as well. I understand that this car rides low, but there is no excuse to not know that certain metals if they touch each other, will corrode rapidly due to there metal make up.

Sebring LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission

suspension could detach leaving steering impossible. suspension wishbone could also plant itself in the pavement, at speed you would probably end up flipping the car
