Reviewed: 2007 Chrysler Sebring Convertible GTC

July 13, 2007 David Zatz 0

A fun and highly rated ragtop from the start, the Chrysler Sebring became progressively refined in each new generation until the fun was gone.

October 9, 2006 David Zatz 0

The Saturn Sky was one of the most exciting new vehicles of its time, not because of its blazing speed (it’s not all that fast), its excellent cornering and road feel, or its technology; but because it provides some of the looks of the first-generation Dodge Viper in a cute, […]
