2000 Chrysler Concorde Lxi 6 cylinder from North America
Stick with Nissan, Toyota or Honda
The same month my warranty was up I developed a foul odor from the air conditioning system. Being a woman, I had no idea what the problem was and hoped it would disappear. Finally, when I took it for an oil change, I asked the mechanic and he told me that it was probably caused by mold, and that Chrysler has a kit to deodorize it. $90 later I still had the odor. I brought it back to the dealer and he deodorized it again. A week later I hear hissing and watched the freon escape into the car. I brought it back again and paid $70 to recharge the freon. I was told to drive around (in the winter) with the a/c on for 150 miles and bring it back. I did so and was told today that it's the evaporator and will cost approximately $800 to fix. The car is 3 1/2 years old, has 23,000 miles and is garaged everyday. It's used once or twice a week and on long drives.
The car is really beautiful, comfortable and has outrageously huge trunk room.
But, I'll never buy another Chrysler again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry, but anyone mentioning stay with Nissan, Toyota or any company, especially this comment, is playing the card that Japanese are better cars than American.
Sorry I don't buy that... and many Japanese like Nissan, Toyota or Honda have their problems. One of my friend's Nissan Altimas with 25,000Km; when driving the clutch failed, so no company is immune to problems.

To comment 16:25:
I would say her clutch failed so soon because she doesn't know how to drive a manual transmission properly.
