This car has treated me well. Although it's no sports car, it still has great acceleration. And I love the style of the car, it's sleek and modern, while still having an actual grille and a fair amount of chrome. My brakes are fairly worn out, yet I still have great stopping power, great for avoiding accidents. It also has a good steering capability, I can make pretty sharp turns and big swerves when I need to avoid something or someone.
Inside the car is also stylish and incredibly roomy. I love the cleverly-placed wood grain along the dash. From the outside, one might think it is somewhat crampt inside, but no. I'm 6'1" (and somewhat large) and I feel quite comfortable inside. Even the back seats have lots of room. Most cars today can't properly fit someone about 6' tall in the back seat, but in this car, the passengers have plenty of room over their heads.
The climate control system is seriously my dream come true. Wonderfully easy to use, while maintaining all the options, and it's automatic! You select a specific temperature in degrees and hit the Auto button and the car does the rest, switching the vents and controlling the fan. Or you can control the fan and vent modes as you wish. In the winter (for example) when you have the heat on and turn off the car, the next morning when you start the car, the heat will not be on. Instead, the computer turns on the fan in proper increments as your engine warms up, keeping you from getting colder!
One of the first things I noticed when I first drove this car was its smooth ride and quiet cabin. Yet you can still get the thrill of a roaring engine when you floor it.
And I'm running this car on E85! That's 85% ethanol and 15% gas. No problems so far, after all this engine should have been built for premium gas.
So far, I've had no major... or even minor problems with the engine and transmission.
My dad bought this car for $300 and put about $200 parts in it, although he never specified for what. He offered this car to me and I gladly accepted. I really like how Chrysler made this Concorde between the categories of small foreign cars and big American cars, delivering performance, size, comfort, style, luxury, and efficiency all in one car.
