1999 Chrysler Concorde LXi 3.2 Liter V6 from North America

Summary:

Luxury for Less

Faults:

The interior lights flash frequently, so does the dashboard lights when you turn the lights on.

The weatherstripping on driver's and left passenger's side have come off.

The weather stripping around the front headlights have come off.

The trunk light occasionally works.

The car sometime "shakes" when it is turned on.

It is sometimes hard to get the car out of a gear especially park.

I'm nervous that steering problems with develop with this car. I've been hearing a lot of problems with other Chrysler LH platform models such as the 300M, Intrepid, and LHS. More of the problems and crashes have occurred with the Intrepid, but they are built with the same parts.

General Comments:

The car drives beautifully.

The styling is unique to the Concorde and sets itself apart from other cars out there, even the Intrepid and 300M.

The outside looks very sumptuous, but the leather seats, fake wood trim, and plastic interior components make the car seem cheap.

Lots of interior room and especially the rear seats are very comfortable. The front seats could use a little more lumbar support.

The 3.2 Liter V6 has good power and torque, although a larger engine like a V8 would probably better suit this car.

The Chrysler Dealership needs better service quality and better customer service.

So far I've only experienced minor problems with this car, but I am considering of getting rid of it. I've heard that over 55,000 incidents have been reported with steering failure in Chrysler vehicles, not counting the other numerous problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 1999 Chrysler Concorde, and we had to have the fuel pump replaced, and also after that, we had to have the motor replaced, and our inside lights flash on some by themselves.

The rubber around headlights has always been loose.

The driver's side window sometimes won't work.

Had the air conditioner worked on last week; it was out of freon, and now it's out again, and we were told it needs an evaporator coil, and that the dash will have to come completely out to repair it, at the cost of about 800.00 bucks.

I will never, never, never ever buy another Chrysler product as long as I live. What a major waste of my hard earned money. Always had a Ford before, and it looks like I will go back to a Ford.

Going back to a Ford will be even bigger mistake. It will suck your hard earned money. Newer Ford is no longer your old fashioned reliable Ford.

To make such a broad statement as the one above is ridiculous. 1, there is no way that that could be universally true for all Ford cars, old and new. Plus when you look at JD power Ford has come a long way in reliability.

All I can say is I would never ever buy another Chrysler car or truck. Here is why.

I bought a 2002 Concorde LX 2.7LT. My wife was driving the Concorde. On our way home, the car over heated and the smoke was all over the place. When we checked under the hood, the water outlet was blowing out. I had to tow it home, now the car won't even start and all the warning lights are on. Replaced some sensors and the water outlet is still no good. Called the dealer; they won't take it back because cos it was used car. We purchased this car just 45 miles from our home and it didn't even made it home. Chrysler said it's out of warranty. All our savings went down the drain + I lost my job...

So don't buy any Chrysler. If you don't believe me, go prove me wrong.

Ray.
