  • With this in the back of my mind, I'm having trouble getting my head around the Chrysler Sebring/Chrysler When the Sebring was.

    The V6 in the Chrysler convertible is rated at hp. But the just isn't a competitive vehicle, even in hardtop convertible form.

    Car Review: Chrysler Convertible Limited On both the soft-top and hardtop, the power top folds in three sections and automatically.

    It's a good attempt, but it just didn't quite make it. Suddenly, a piece of the car that they had labored for literally years of their life on was unceremoniously ripped off the car and replaced by something that may or may not quite mesh with the rest of the design. The BMW is better in every way except for foul-weather traction and price. It still has the stubby, squared back end and still sits up too high for me.

    Posted By Chris Haak in Reviews 10 comments. A few years ago when I had the opportunity to interview Justin Thompson, the designer of the then-new Buick LaCrosse , I asked him how designers felt when their original works were refreshed via a mid-cycle enhancement MCE.

    Suddenly, a piece of the car that they had labored for literally years of their life on was unceremoniously ripped off the car and replaced by something that may or may not quite mesh with the rest of the design. When the Sebring was launched, it was seemingly benchmarked against the previous-generation domestic offerings, and quickly found itself losing comparison tests against the sales champs of the midsize sedan segment.

    It had a sub-par design, sub-par interior, sub-par suspension, and sub-par powertrain. Quickly, the car became a favorite of rental car companies because of its low cost with heavily subsidized pricing, but retail buyers stayed away in droves — unless their name happened to be Michael Scott. Today, Chrysler is much healthier today than it was at the time the Sebring was engineered, and — before reinforcements arrive with their Italian accent in the coming years.

    However, the company still needs to sell cars right now in order to keep the lights on until the new, [theoretically] more-desirable vehicles arrive. The downside is that the sedan is reasonably stiff, while the convertible as expected, I might add has much more body flex.

    Considering the non-blank sheet of paper here. Just as the new-for Charger dropped its predecessors squared-off dashboard and door panels, so does the Since the is more of an update than an all-new car, there were more than a few glimmers of the old Chrysler inside, though. In each of the crashes, the touchscreen continued to display at static map and was completely unresponsive to any user input whatsoever. I turned off the car briefly about 5 seconds , opened the door, and re-started the car, and it was still frozen.

    Both times, after about 35 minutes, the Chrysler logo appeared on the screen with a black background, and the system reset itself. Navigation and radio functionality returned at that point. In the interior photos, basically anything charcoal-colored was soft to the touch, and anything on the dash or doors that was the ivory color was hard plastic with the exception of the upper door panels, which are ivory but soft.

    The A-pillars are clad in hard plastic with a fake fabric pattern, and at the top of the windshield, there is a really ugly circular cutout for a sensor of unknown origin. Though this is obviously the convertible variant and not the sedan, the interior comments would be the same for either. Controls are easy to operate and have a reasonably consistent feel from one button to another and from one knob to another.

    Off the line, the Pentastar has enough torque to cause torque steer, but it seems to come into the meat of its power curve above RPMs. That is, a little light on torque, but strong on sound and passing power.

    Chrysler pairs the new V6 with a six-speed automatic that has AutoStick manual-shift capability. Honestly, I rarely tried it and just mashed the gas pedal instead. This engine is a jewel for Chrysler, and it will be for years. The Sebring had a reputation for having a serious problem with understeer, but the seems to improve that a bit. The car is not a handling champ, nor is it intended to be.
