Would definitely buy another Chrysler


Axle broke at 235000; just had it replaced no problem.

General Comments:

1998 Chrysler Concorde LXI 3.2 from North America


The most reliable car I have ever owned


Trim and door seals. Electric radiator fan (at 160,000 miles), HVAC controller (at 180,000 miles), broken catalytic converter (at 187,000 miles), transmission speed control (at 188,000 miles).

General Comments:

Absolutely nothing went wrong with this car for the first 150,000 miles. Not even a burned out light bulb! Now at close to 190,000 miles it's starting to nickel and dime me, but it owes me nothing.

I've read other negative comments about Chrysler reliability here and I wonder if we are talking about the same car. I've owned six Chryslers since 1984 and some Japanese cars too. Yes, the transmissions in my mid-90s Caravans were junk, but otherwise they have all been good vehicles. I've never had a major engine problem, except my 1988 Caravan, which had a Mitsubishi motor.

This is a very pleasant car to drive on long trips.

Decent gas mileage for such a large car. I average 24.5 mpg in my mostly rural driving.

The 3.2L engine has just the right amount of power and torque and is nicely matched to the transmission gearing. It never hunts for gears and is smooth shifting.

Seats and driving position are decent for an American car.

It still looks good, inside and out, although its now eight years old. Unfortunately, the styling of the new 300C-- and especially the Charger-- puts me off, so my next car will not be a Chrysler.

I am looking to purchase a 98 Concorde with 95k miles on it for 1500 dollars. Is that something I should consider? Or is that bad joojoo in the end?

1998 Chrysler Concorde LX 2.7 Litre from North America


Nice roomy car with good power and gas mileage


Car blows blue smoke under medium acceleration.

Rotors warped twice, since then no problem.

Electrical problem at 16200km, No heater, lights, heat etc.

Trunk weatherstripping came off in car-wash, trunk was soaked.

Factory stereo does not play some Cd's, replaced with an aftermarket one.

General Comments:

The gas mileage is great, about 28mpg.

Very roomy, can fit a goalie hockey bag in the trunk no problem.

Ample power.

Average interior, shows no sign of wear at 167000km.

Has never left me stranded.

1998 Chrysler Concorde LXi 3.2 V6 from North America


Spendy to fix, great all the other time


Headlights Wiring lose (have to remove front bumper to change/fix)

95k Battery died (not a big deal, but you have to remove passenger front wheel and fender to change)

Display panel (int temp/blower/etc) shorted out and won't work (atleast blower works)

A/C only blows cold at 55mph+ (nothing to do with engine speed/coolant level, etc, just MPH) been told it's a faulty ac fan.

Power window switches break easily (replaced 3)

Won't start if Engine is hot or gas is below 1/2 a tank (not every time, but often enough)

Just about every wire in the car has needed replaced.

Brakes, tires, standard stuff.

General Comments:

Overall I would rate this car a 7/10. Parts/Labor is VERY costly. Chrysler must of thought that nothing could go wrong with this car, so they made everything "unserviceable".

Besides the Bigest SUVs/Trucks on the road, you are the giant of the road. It doesn't look as big as it is, but you could almost park a Hyundia Accent inside the car. its about a foot longer than a grand caravan. Needless to say it is Very roomy; and 5 adults can fit without a problem. The trunk has something like 18cu ft; almost the size of my apt... lol.

Plenty of power, great options (when working) good MPG (16-26) on avg I get 19 when just driving around town. classy look, etc.

If you can pick one of these up for under $7000 (and bluebook is $6000) then do it. Just have a about $1000 set aside so you can fix what goes wrong. I have had a Ton of little things go wrong, but besides not starting when hot and low on gas (let it cool for 15min and your fine) its been a good car.

I would say don't get it if your looking for a Caddy, but do if you want a lot of luxury for the KBB price, cuz at $6k it's a lot of car... but anything much more.. run away... fast.
