2008 Chrysler Sebring Quality

On Quality

According to reviews from around the Web and the firsthand experience of’s editors, interior space is ample in the 2008 Chrysler Sebring for four adults, a bit tight for five.

Car and Driver says it has a “spacious interior.” Space, however, doesn’t equal room inside its doors: “Though the Sebring's 102.5-cubic-foot cabin is larger than both the Toyota Camry's and Ford Fusion's, it feels smaller, especially in front,” adds. “Not helping matters is the cloth seat's narrow bottom cushion, whose side bolsters squeeze front occupants' thighs.” Edmunds finds “cabin space is generally on par with the rest of the midsize car class, as the Sebring sedan offers respectable amounts of headroom and legroom.”

The 2008 Chrysler Sebring competes on paper in room and utility, but quality and comfort are below those of rivals Chevrolet Malibu and Honda Accord.

In back, “the 60/40-split, folding rear seat is on the firm side, but it's nonetheless comfortable,” says. “Legroom for adults is acceptable, but there's not a lot of extra space to let your legs roam.” However, “the Sebring's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is on the small side,” adds. The backseats fold forward and open up to the trunk; the front passenger seat also folds flat for loading long objects inside the car.

While “cabin design is ergonomically sound,” Edmunds observes, “the quality of interior plastics is poor for this price range.” felt "most trim pieces fit together snugly, but the turn signal stalk and directionally adjustable LED map lights feel cheap." ConsumerGuide reports "cabin materials are more sturdy than rich and feel notably down market of most midsize rivals." Those “cut-rate” materials put the Sebring in the “basement among midsize family cars,” Edmunds concludes.
