I've always only ever owned Fords so my Mopar-Fu is weak.

My wife wants a Sebring convertible. We are going to look at two on Saturday (3/11) & will likely purchase one of them. This isn't an emotion driven purchase, we've been shopping for a couple years. If not one of these, no big deal.

#1 '05 White, black top, cloth int. 2.7L 22k mi. $15k

#2 '02 Dark Blue (her much prefered color) black top, gray leather int. 2.7L 40k mi. $13k stored winters.

Either one, money wise is fairly priced & we haven't begun to negotiate.

I've been advised the 2.4L motor is to be avoided. Any areas of concern I should look for?


School me.

Its actually the 2.7V6 to avoid. There was quite a few engine failures when that motor came out. There were companys selling motor swap kits to upgrade to a bigger 3.0 or 3.5 depending on the car.

The problem is supposedly fixed by now. But something to be aware of.

I'd say the best motors are 2.4I4 and 3.0 V6. Plenty of aftermarket parts for both motors.
