1994 Chrysler LHS 3.5L V6 from North America
I loves me some LH cars!
Items that need to replaced/addressed:
Driver seat wearing on bolsters.
Passenger seat has hole from 3 poodles riding in it for 13 years!
Paint is dead on flat surfaces because it had NEVER had a hand wax - always "spray wax" at car wash.
Power antenna not retracting completely when radio/car is off.
Sunroof will not vent and needs adjusted as it will not rest in the proper position.
A/C compressor dead (was replaced new in 2006).
Driver wiper overshooting the windshield when on.
Pulley making grinding noise.
Passenger airbag lifting and warping (common).
Headliner beginning to drop along rear window.
Slight scratch on passenger rear bumper.
Side door beauty moldings peeling.
This is my SIXTH LH car. They are:
1994 Chrysler New Yorker (Red Metallic/Quartz cloth) - bought new in 7/93.
1995 Chrysler LHS (Spruce/Agate leather) - bought new 5/95.
1996 Chrysler New Yorker (Black/Quartz cloth) - bought new 7/96.
1997 Eagle Vision TSi (Black/Quartz leather) - bought used 10/97.
1995 Chrysler LHS (Wildberry/Quartz leather) - bought used 11/01.
1994 Chrysler LHS (Spruce/Driftwood leather) - bought 4/09.
I am a car junkie! And I loves me some LH cars! Each of the aforementioned had issues from day one. And most of the issues were the same from car to car.
The 94 I purchased from a friend this month was bought new by her father in 4/94. Each and every maintenance was done at the Chrysler dealer he bought it from. In 4/07, he bought a cool vanilla 300C, and passed the LHS to his daughter. Only problem with that is she had 3 cars already; her partner had 2. The LHS sat for 2 years. She put 2,000 miles on the car in that length of time. She calls me, says I can have it for (a deferred) $1,000. Said she put 4 new tires on 2/09 ($800+ with alignment) and brakes/rotors times 4 ($450) 3/09 along with an oil change). I, without hesitation, jumped. Since we live 6 hours apart, we met halfway. Came home with no issues - 27+ MPG @ 60 with cruise control set.
Though this car has things that need addressed, I LOVE it. I also have a 2004 Honda Accord EX V6 2 dr (Black) that hasn't moved from the garage in over a week! I think it may be jealous! I absolutely endorse the LH cars - as long as you go into buying one KNOWING you will HAVE to fix things. But the trade off is worth it. Comfort, size, power, luxury, grace, class... Can't go wrong in my opinion.
BTW, I went through 2 wives between my 95 Spruce and 96 Black LOL! I traded wives, but stuck with Chrysler!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
