Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

Why you should buy this car: Your Chrysler Sebring is getting a little old and you don't want to wait for a new one; you want a convertible but live in the 75% of the country that has some sort of winter.

Why you shouldn't buy this car: You're looking for a more of a sports car and less of a boulevard cruiser; you or your traveling companion pack heavy.
