Reviews for the comfort and quality of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible were mixed, although none were stellar. Opinions ranged from “acceptable” to downright “awful.”
Car and Driver was "impressed by the interior materials," but most reviewers felt the Sebring Convertible’s trim left a lot to be desired. Edmunds.com describes materials as "below average, with cheap plastics and hard surfaces."
According to USAToday, while some individuals' physiques may find the seats "agreeable," the interior actually leaves a great deal to be desired; the front seats had an "uncomfortable bulge" on the back rests' lower edge, and the lumbar adjustment (always a bugbear in automotive seating) was incorrectly placed. Meanwhile, leg and knee room for backseat occupants was virtually nonexistent. Once the hardtop is down, it leaves almost nothing in the way of trunk space.
TheCarConnection.com’s editors found better comfort in the front seats—and actually noted a decent amount of headroom in the back. But backseat passengers don’t fare as well, as legroom for adults in the back is tight, and seating for three across is impossible. The mismatched, plasticky interior is the Sebring Convertible’s bigger problem; for a car that can exceed $30,000 quite easily, the Convertible’s trim and finishes look more like those in a $20,000 car.
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible has mediocre materials and not enough rear legroom to make its case.
