Review: Chrysler Sebring Convertible (2007 – 2010)

Rating:

Electric folding hard-top and reasonable luggage space.

Not the prettiest convertible, especially compared to previous Sebring convertible. Quality very poor. Potential lack of parts in years to come.

Should I offer £8,000 for this 2009 Chrysler Sebring convertible?

I've been offered a 2009/09 Chrysler Sebring convertible 2.0 diesel manual, one owner, in metallic black with 16,000 miles, service history and replacement alloys under warranty, for £11,000. Optional satnav/hard drive not fitted. There is 20 months' manufacturer's warranty left. The price by this franchised dealer has just dropped by £2,000, as have the prices of all the others on sale on Autotrader, presumably because FIAT/Chrysler's CEO announced at Geneva that Chryslers would be sold as Lancias from now on (ie the Flavia Cabrio Concept). My feeling is that Lancia has such a poor reputation for rust in the UK that it will be years before they re-launch here. I'm minded to offer £8,000 or to walk, to allow for Chrysler's new orphan status. No trade-in, of course. This would be a third personal car, after my '97 Honda Prelude 4ws and my 09 Legend, so strictly as a summer touring car to the Continent. What do you think?
I got the impression that in the UK, Lancias will be sold as Chryslers and Dodges as FIATs (hence the Dodgy FIAT). Chaos. £11,000 is still quite cheap for an ugly car that is nevertheless a 4-seat convertible. But your tactic of offering £8,000 might work. Body parts will have to come from the USA. Don't know where diesel parts will come from. Volkswagen dealer? Take a look at this: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/chrysler/sebring-convertible-2007/?section=bad. Your car might be the same car.
