Review

Very little maintenance required other than oil/lube. Did replace belts including timing at 120,000. Good looking car and fuel efficient.


Favorite Features

Looks and visibility.

Better insulation to dampen road noise.

1997 Chrysler Concorde Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I wrote a review a few months after buying this car. In four years I have doubled the mileage. It seems then that every 65,000 miles things start to break. After putting 215,000 trouble free miles on a Mazda Protege this does not speak well for the quality of materials on the Chrysler. On a practical stance I bought the car wholesale and the economics of owning this car have still worked out in my favor. But there is no chance in hell that I will ever go into a Chrysler showroom when shopping for a new car.

Review

Owned it since it was new. Mialage is 24 city, 30 highway. have over 185,000 miles and just needed first non-scheduled service (intake manifold gasket.) My normal service is oil change every 3K miles with Mobile-1 10w-30, spark plugs every 30K-40K miles, trans filter/oil every 60,000 miles, and timming belt, accessory belts, water pump and radiator hoses at 120,000 miles. At 150,000 miles had to replace power steering hose and fuel pump. At 185,000 miles fixed the manifold gasket, and installed new struts, and engine cradle bushings.


Favorite Features

Good power from the 3.5L engine. Auto temp control, auto-dimming mirror, smooth ride, a lot of room, nice stereo. Car pretty much drives itself.


Suggested Improvements

Stiffer struts like the KYBs I just installed, seats with more support. Better headlight design.

Review

Owned it for about two years now. Bought it with 65k and nothing but problems since. After reading some of these reviews, it seems as though the car craps out after 60k miles. Over the past two years I put roughly $4,000 and still going.


Favorite Features

Nice size engine!


Suggested Improvements

Mechanical Quality needs to really be improved.

Review

I bought this car used in 2004 and have since logged about 20,000 miles on it. Have had no problems with this car despite the fact it has 190,000 miles on it. Lots of power, space, and a nice looking car for the money. Would definately recommend this car to anyone!


Favorite Features

3.5 V6, large interior and trunk, nice design, well layed-out guages, overhead console, supportive bucket seats, great a/c system, and very nice audio for factory system!


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy...
