The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible takes two steps back in styling and no steps forward in handling or performance. The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
