Visit Chrysler for more information on the Chrysler Sebring Convertible.

The three-headed Sebring monster returns for yet another year of terrorizing competing models. Along with the 2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertible, there is the equally flashy coupe and the calm sedan. Across the line are spread such a diversity of models that it is really hard to find another vehicle of one name that offers so many configurations. In short, Chrysler aims to hit nearly every car-buying demographic with the Sebring line-not a bad marketing strategy at all.

If you live in a nice climate, the idea of a convertible-if you don't already have one-must be pretty tantalizing. But you don't want just any convertible; you want one that is made by a manufacturer with proven success in the style. Well, Chrysler rekindled America's love affair with open air driving with the 1982 LeBaron ragtop, and now it's doing the same with the Sebring convertible. They know just what convertible owners want, and they know how to give it to them.

Available Models
The massive model blitz spread over the 2004 Chrysler Sebring line already been noted, and it's difficult not to return to it again and again. With the Sebring convertible, there are four trim levels from which to choose: LX, GTC, LXi and Limited.

Interior Features
The two-door 2004 Chrylser Sebring convertible has room for five passengers total, though four is probably more probable. Inside the 2004 Sebring convertible, it's all about practicality. The GTC model features a sporty instrument cluster and a unique patterned instrument panel bezel with GTC badging. The gauges include speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip odometer, fuel level and coolant temperature.

While the entry-level LX model trim has plenty of appointments, it doesn't reach the level of comfort of uplevel LXi and Limited models. In these trims you'll find leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, a 6-way power driver seat, a trip computer, a compass and an outside-temperature indicator. Options available with the 2004 Sebring convertible include heated front seats (LXi and Limited) and a Smoker's Package.

Exterior Features
The Sebring convertible has a unique body design within the Sebring family. However, the obvious mark of distinction is its power convertible top. Double insulated, it has enough thickness to protect you from the elements and keep you warm inside if you need it.

There are two engines chosen to represent and power the 2004 Chrysler Sebring line. The first, found in LX models, is a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder model with 150 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 167 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The second, powering the rest of the line, is a 2.7-liter V6 that will move you with 200 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 190 lb-ft of torque at 4850 rpm. Automatic transmission is standard except for the sporty GTC convertible, which is also available with manual transmission. In addition, Chrysler's AutoStick automatic transmission with manual shift gate is available on the top-line Limited convertible.

The Sebring is a front-wheel drive vehicle. A fully-independent short/long-arm double wishbone suspension provides a flat ride. This suspension configuration combines with the Sebring's stiff structure and refined steering to give drivers a highly responsive ride.

Safety and Security
This body stiffness is also important in withstanding potential impacts, while the Sebring convertible's handling helps you avoid any on the road. Next Generation multistage driver and front passenger airbags inflate with forces appropriate to the severity of impact.
