as so long as the right weight oil and oil changes have been done.
I have a 98 with a 2.7 and 150k on it use 5w 30 and factory or similar oil filter

I would advise to stay away from buying chrysler, i have a 2004 sebring and am having nothing but problems with it, if you look at all the problems posted on the chrysler forum, then you would be better off getting a foreign made car, which is what i am going to do after my lease is up in this car.

Chrysler Tech has a good point. Always maintain your junk.Follow their recommendations for maint. schedules, and what type/weight for your fluids. However, ebay is littered with vehicles of that vintage and that motor, all needing a new motor. The Sebring is an excellentcar for what it is. I'd recommend finding one with the 2.4l engine. I would avoid any vehicle with a "slight" engine noise.

i highly recommend staying away from the 2.7. we were always getting calls for people looking to get a new 2.7. they are in my opinion junk motors. hasnt been one that ive seen yet without oil out the pipe. look for a 3.0 if you want the 6 cylinder.
