A very good car for me!!
Hi, my A604 automatic broke down (only reverse function) after trailering a mini digging machine about 2 tons load + the trailer. I changed the automatic oil and had another 30000 km before it was stop. My van is a long edition from US and it had only 4 slings on the oil cooler for the automatic, while my spare part van from Chrysler Canada short edition had 9 slings on the oil cooler, then I understand why at least my van could not take any load.
Would not suddenly start, moved it 2 m and then stop, no spark at coil. Test lamp system showed no digital synchronize signal from the main computer. I changed computer from my Canada version (same engine) started at once.
Variable charging between 12,5 V and 14,35 V. Checked engine wire harness and put on contact fat. function good.
I bought a wreck with defective head gaskets, crashed steering column, no heating due to burglary. So I worked on it for about a month, so went back to "normal". I think the car went very well and I am only waiting find a manual trans-axle, I do not trust the automatic, specially when I need to make some trailer, in holidays + I have to drive a big boat also down to the water, so if someone have a A 543 or even better an A568, I would be more than happy to buy one.
All the best, Jack from Norway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
