The 2008 Chrysler Sebring comes up fair to middling in most other respects, but with the Sebring, Chrysler has spared no expense when it comes to safety features. Visibility from behind the wheel is excellent, and the anti-lock brakes included standard on all Sebring models have been rated superior to excellent by all sources except Jalopnik.

The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible comes with standard front and side airbags, as well as ABS. An electronic stability system is offered as an option with the convertible models. According to NY Newsday, this option runs $425. Also standard with the Sebring is the tire-pressure monitoring gauge.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
