As long as any warranty problem was documented with the dealership while in warranty, the same coverage will apply even if the car is now out of warranty.

You need to replace the top. It will keep getting worse. You could put some kind of glue on it as a temporary fix but it will look ugly and it won't stop getting worse. It's not that big a job. Look for places that do car upholstery, or an auto body shop rather than the dealer if you want to save some money. If you're handy, you can replace it yourself. Search for tops on google and make sure you also buy a DVD with instructions and videos specific to your car. You should be able to keep the rear window (which is a separate piece) and re-use the side cables (some websites say they must be replaced). The video will tell you that you need an air, or electric powered stapler but I did mine (2001 Sebring LX) with a T50 manual stapler and just hammered any staples that didn't look as tight as I wanted them to. Harbor Freight has an electric stapler for about $20 but I don't know how strong it is. DVD also is for entire top replacement (top and rear window) so you'll have to figure out what to skip to leave the old window in.

2002 Chrysler Sebring conv. canvas separated from rear window

the correct method is the heat as it is heat welded in place using a micro wave process ( the same process as welding plastic tarps etc)
anything else will be strickly short term and will fail when it is really pouring down
to see if the quote is reasonable ring other shops and get quotes from them
I would expect that what has been quoted would be in the ball park figure of other quotes
