1999 Chrysler LHS 3.5 V6 from North America
I prefer My LHS to my wifes' Cadillac Sedan De Ville
Electric cooling fan failed at 125,000 miles.
Water pump failed at 75,000 miles. Replacement cost was limited to the pump itself because I had told the repair agency to replace the water pump when they replaced the timing belt (60,000) They did not replace the pump because they said that it looked good. When the pump failed, they honored their error.
This is the finest car that I have owned.
The car handles very well, accelerates well, and has been extremely trouble-free.
I can drive 600 miles and stop only for gasoline, and arrive without a back ache.
22.5 mpg overall, and 27 on the highway.
I keep a logbook where every penny is recorded. Very inexpensive to operate this vehicle.
I am 6'1" and keep the seat almost all the way back. I can then get into the back seat and have ample room. Amazing.
Huge trunk space, I can lay a large garment bag down flat without folding it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I was a UK tourist to CA in 1998 and had a Chrysler LHS from Alomo for 2 weeks as a rental car. I too was very pleased with the car. Carefully driven on the motorway it delivered 31 m.p.g!
One thing did concern me however and this occurred in the tremendous heat of the Joshua Tree National Park. After parking the car for a while I returned only to find that although the car engine and auto. transmission worked nothing else did! We had no electrics. It was quite frightening and amusing at the same time as we drove pushing the doors open for air. There was no mention of this in the handbook either! We arrived at a garage where the attendant told us to park the car in the shade and kindly sprayed the car with cold water. Half an hour later hey presto! Don't ask me hat happened, but I just thought you and your readers should know.
