How much does it cost to get an '03 Chrysler Sebring fixed if there is a rod going out in the engine?

Asked by Jun 02, 2017 at 03:42 PM about the 2003 Chrysler Sebring LX Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am looking for a vehicle and found an '03
Sebring convertible priced at 1,000 due to
a rod going out in the engine. I have talked
them into $700 since I will obviously have
to pay to get work done on it soon. How
much will that cost if I buy the car. It's got
91k miles on it which is pretty low honestly
in my opinion. I need help. Should I pass
on this car? The sellers say it's got at least
3 months before it's a must to get fixed..

They are notoriously unreliable and it will cost thousands of dollars to keep and maintain this car..! Not worth it.

Our 99 Sebring was a pretty trouble free car. They were actually a Mitsubishi Galant back then. A new engine might cost 2 to 3 grand and used engines are a big gamble. I would move on to another vehicle unless you have cash to burn.

Not worth fixing. The vehicle is 14 years old and at the end of it's useful life. Fixing a thrown rod is neither cheap or easy. As was already mentioned, you're looking at replacing the engine. This vehicle needs to be scrapped or parted out. Keep shopping!! HTH. -Jim
