The 2009 Chrysler Sebring offers reasonably good safety, though crash-test scores aren’t at the front or the class and safety equipment isn’t remarkable. If only Chrysler would have paid as much attention to safety features as it did to its options list.
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring gets mostly five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for crash protection, with four-star scores in passenger side-impact and rollover resistance. The Sebring also wins a rating of "good" for frontal offset tests from the IIHS.
Side-impact and curtain airbags are standard across the line, as are anti-lock brakes, while electronic stability control is optional on some models. MyRide.com points out, "Electronic stability program plus traction control and Brake Assist" are optional.
