Chrysler scored a big hit with the 300C executive saloon and the Sebring is an attempt to recreate that success in the family saloon market. Unfortunately it falls short in nearly every department.

Chrysler scored a big hit with the 300C executive saloon and the Sebring is an attempt to recreate that success in the family saloon market. Unfortunately it falls short in nearly every department. Chrysler thinks the Sebring is a rival for the upmarket likes of the Honda Accord, but it's not even up to the quality of much lower priced saloons like the Kia Magentis. It shares its proportions and engines with the cheaper Dodge Avenger and the Sebring is fairly roomy, well equipped and uses a VW diesel. But there's little to recommend it. The quality of the finish and interior materials is poor so it immediately feels cheap, while the driving experience is instantly forgettable. It lacks refinement and noise insulation plus as a new buy it's over-priced.
