Photos: 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible

Quality seems to be a real problem with the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible. We didn't enjoy the driving experience, but the car does have some high-tech cabin options.

Chrysler's Sebring comes in a hard-top or convertible version, with three different engine options.

The Sebring uses Chrysler's signature grille strakes and its winged badge. Under Chrysler's new management, that badge is going away in favor of the old pentastar badge.

Our Sebring Limited came with a 3.5-liter V-6, a powerful but not very economical engine. Other options are a 2.7-liter V-6 and a 2.4-liter four cylinder.

The Sebring has a power cloth top. With the top down, the view is very nice.

The trunk deck is expansive. Along with the straked hood, the similarity to a boat is pronounced.

The 3.5-liter engine in the Limited gives the Sebring almost too much get-up-and-go, bringing the car close to fishtailing when accelerating through a corner.

With the top down, the trunk space is compromised more than we would expect.

The double-layer top offers decent sound insulation from the outside world.

Power seat adjustment in front was limited to lumbar and forward/back controls. Seat recline is manually operated.

At first glance, the interior looks nice. But on closer inspection, the materials feel cheap and plasticky, and the fit is poor.

Controls for the stereo are located on the backs of the lateral wheel spokes. They are easy to use by touch.

White-faced gauges give the Sebring dashboard a refined look.

Although it has six gears, we weren't impressed with the Sebring's automatic. It hunted for gears and took its time downshifting.

The base stereo interface works well, and includes an auxiliary input on the faceplate. There are also buttons for the optional UConnect Bluetooth hands-free cell phone system.

We found it easy to navigate folders on an MP3 CD.

Here is what the MyGig interface looks like. We didn't have it optioned up on our test car, but when we've seen it demoed before, we came away impressed.
