We gave a top of the line Limited Sebring Convertible one week in the Autoblog Garage win us over, but things didn't go as planned. Read about what happened after the jump. ... Read More

    Poll: Will the 200 be enough to get Chrysler back into the family sedan game?

    Goodbye, Sebring, thanks for the memories... sort of. Sadly, most of the recollections we can muster that include Chrysler's mid-size sedan aren't ones we're particularly fond of – at least not when thinking of the nameplate's current generation, which debuted in 2007 to a chorus of boos amongst the motoring press and limp sales directly ...

    After a steady drip of teaser photos and information, Chrysler has finally dropped the mother load on its pivotal new 200 sedan. The conservatively handsome four-door draws on the successful 200C concept from the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, but it still clearly has the hard point echoes of its predecessor, the widely panned Sebring. That means that while it ...
