2008 Sebring Overview

The Chrysler Sebring was completely redesigned and introduced as a four-door sedan for the 2007 model year, then a two-door convertible was added in mid-2007 as a 2008 model.

The midsize, front-wheel-drive Chrysler Sebring competes with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Saturn Aura, among others.The availability of a retractable hardtop convertible distinguishes the Sebring lineup from its popular competitors.The Sebring convertible offers a choice of vinyl or cloth soft tops or the retractable hard top.

The 2008 Sebring sedan and convertible are available in three trim levels with a choice of three engines.The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, the mid-level engine is a 2.7-liter V6 that can run on E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.Both are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.The top-of-the-line engine is a 3.5-liter V6 paired with a six-speed automatic.

Even the four-cylinder is fairly responsive in the sedan, but the V6 is the best choice for the convertible.And the six-speed automatic is more responsive than the four-speed automatic.

The Sebring sedan offers competitive passenger room, with plenty of room up front and a useful rear seat.The sedan seats five.The trunk is small for the class and has a small opening, however.

The convertible offers good interior space up front.It seats four passengers, but the rear seat lacks the legroom to make it comfortable for adults to sit back there on long trips.More than half of the available space in the convertible's trunk is taken up by the top mechanism when the top is down.

The Sebring cabin is pleasant.The look is sleek, and it is all nicely integrated and finished.Some of the interior surfaces are cold and hard to the touch, however.With an available DVD rear-seat entertainment system, and Chrysler's MyGIG hard-disc audio system, the Sebring's available technology is as good as or better than anything in the class.

Dynamically, the Sebring fits middle of the pack in the midsize class.Ride quality is generally pleasant, soaking up most bumps well.Handling is competent in the sedan.The convertible lacked the driving feel of the sedan, however, and exhibited noticeable cowl shake.

Introduced as a 2007 model, the Sebring sedan gets two changes for 2008, one major and one minor.All-wheel drive is available for 2008 on the Limited model.Sirius Satellite Radio is standard.The convertible was introduced as an early 2008 model, so it gets no changes at the fall model year changeover, though all base models are now called LX.After almost single-handedly resurrecting the U.S.convertible market in the early 1980s, Chrysler has worked hard to retain its foothold in the drop-top niche as competition has expanded and improved.With the 2008 Sebring Convertible, Chrysler raises the ante, offering the first, domestic-brand coupe with a retractable hard top.

Not comfortable letting it all ride on a new roof, the company has improved the Sebring to some degree in virtually every other area.There are now three engine choices, a new, 232-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 and more powerful versions of the inline-4 and 2.7-liter V6.The 2.7-liter flex-fuel engine is capable of burning regular gasoline or E-85, …
