Chrysler Wants to Give You the Ultimate Baby Gift

In order to spark interest in its rather lackluster new Chrysler Sebring, Chrysler is going to sponsor a giveaway sweepstakes this month. The campaign’s inspiration is the one-in-a-hundred date and in order to win you have to be expecting your own bundle of joy on 05/06/07.

The “Bundle of Joy” contest is linked to next week’s date of 02:03:04 am, 05/06/07. That specific time must be stamped on the birth certificate of your new child in order to qualify and enter the contest. One new Sebring sedan will be awarded to one of the families that enters the contest.

David Rooney, Director – Chrysler Marketing & Global Communications, said in a release that Chrysler “wanted to celebrate this moment in time and give the ultimate baby gift that would help ease the transition of adding a new member to the family.”

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The Chrysler brand
is announcing the birth of the “Chrysler Sebring Bundle of Joy” contest
that gives new parents a chance to win an all-new 2007 Chrysler Sebring if
their baby is born at 2:03:04 a.m. on 05/06/07.

This sequential time and date is novel because it won’t occur for
another hundred years. Chrysler wants to celebrate this history-making
moment by awarding a family-friendly vehicle to parents who give birth at
this exact moment in time. In addition to bringing home their new baby, one
lucky family will also bring home a new 2007 Chrysler Sebring.

“The Sebring is designed to fit the active lifestyles of families
nationwide. Whether you are a parent of a newborn, toddler, tween or teen,
this vehicle can meet the needs of all families,” said David Rooney,
Director – Chrysler Marketing & Global Communications. “We wanted to
celebrate this moment in time and give the ultimate baby gift that would
help ease the transition of adding a new member to the family.”

Having a Sebring Changes Everything
Between the crying and lack of sleep, being a new parent can definitely
be a rattling experience. While Chrysler can’t take the guesswork out of
diaper changing and napping, it can help families find the perfect family
vehicle. Below is a list of car buying tips to keep in mind when purchasing
a fun, family-centered vehicle, such as the Chrysler Sebring:

— Safe and Sound: Safety features are important to keep in mind when
shopping for a family car. All Chrysler Sebring models come equipped
with standard advanced multi-stage front air bags, side-curtain air
bags and front-seat-mounted side air bags as well as standard anti-lock
brakes, a first in the mid-size car segment. And before bringing baby
home, parents can have the installation of their child safety seat
inspected through DaimlerChrysler’s SeatCheck program. By visiting, parents can connect to the closest child safety seat
inspection locations in their community.

— Rock-a-bye baby: Seek vehicles with the latest technology, like the
Sebring, which has a MyGIG(TM) Multimedia Infotainment System. This
exclusive feature allows parents to download baby’s favorite lullabies
to a built-in hard drive. Once baby is asleep, parents can indulge
themselves by tuning into their favorite stations from over 120
channels of digital-quality cross-country entertainment offered on the
Sebring through SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

— Baby-proof the interior: Look for vehicles with static-, stain- and
odor-resistant seat fabric, like YES Essentials(R) fabric available on
the Sebring. This will help parents safeguard their car’s interior from
the hard-to-avoid formula and baby food spills.
