Since this si my girlfriend's car, that was my first thought as well. The coolant level was/is fine.

Nest is (with that many miles), I would suggest thermostat replacement. I know that you said the coolant level is good, but how good/effective is your coolant? Is the mixture is 50/50 or do you have more water than coolant, or too much coolant and not enough water. Use an antifreeze tester to check the strength of your coolant. Something like this one.
Another thing you may want to experiment, try switching between "fresh air" and "recirculate".
If the heater core is plugging up, you may not get enough heat either. The next thing is to perform antifreeze flush and refill, including the heater core.
Let us know.

Thanks so much for you input to the Chrysler Sebring not heating.
Next question is- is it difficult to get to the thermostat on the Sebring? I know on my experience with foreign cars (Mercedes and Mazdas) it has bee a snap.

What engine do you have? There are 4 different engines used in this vehicle. Look at your VIN, count from left to right. I need the 8th digit of the 17-digit number. It will be either X, G, U or H.
