Chrysler scored a big hit with the 300C executive saloon and the Sebring is an attempt to recreate that success in the family saloon market. Unfortunately it falls short in nearly every department.

Running costs

With a service required every 9,000 miles for the diesel version, the Sebring falls a long way short of the 30,000 miles a Vauxhall Vectra will cover before it needs attention. It also needs more frequent servicing than the Avensis or Mondeo, so maintenance costs are likely to be higher than average. Insurance groups are pretty low and fuel consumption on the diesel is fairly typical of cars in this sector.

However depreciation will be heavy - expect a three-year-old Sebring to be worth less than 30% of its original cost.
