1999 Chrysler Concorde LXi 3.2L V6 from North America
Take my gold, but not my 1999 Chrysler Concorde!
With the minor exception of an engine speed sensor for the transmission shift progression this vehicle has not required any corrective maintenance. Preventive maintenance under the recommended schedule schedule is all this car needs.
This vehicle is the best looking, best riding and most desirable automobile I have ever owned (out of, conservatively, 25 others of every popular American make). The 200 hp power-plant is well matched to the weight of this full-size vehicle, enhancing a superior suspension with nimble maneuvering capabilities at any speed; all while providing astonishing gas economy. The well-appointed interior and quietly sporty exterior prove that luxury and great looks need not cause sticker shock. I keep wanting to find out what improvements have been made by Daimler Chrysler, but what's the use...? I think I'll have this beautiful green machine for many years to come!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wrote this review 4 years ago, and am updating it now.
The car has only accumulated 14,000 km since the initial review. Total is 37,050 km now, (March, 2009)
The steering is slightly loose and clunks a bit. A mechanic friend of mine says it's likely the rubber bushings that mount the steering rack have developed a bit of play... apparently is a common problem in these cars.
The trunk lid supports are pooped, but are easily replaced.
The original battery is cranking a bit slow and is getting old. But IMO 10+ years on one battery is excellent.
Otherwise, everything is fine. All tires, brakes etc are still factory original and the car drives like new.
