To support our retirement's fixed income in May 2004 we paid cash and our 93 Jeep Cherokee for a dark-red Concorde LXi (tan interior) with 49000 miles. It was a great choice. With its peppy 3.2L V6 it's a good looker and (even for me at 72) fun to drive. It's now 9 yrs old with 72000+ miles and hasn't given us any problems whatsoever. When we bought it we chose to replace it's battery and tires, tinted it's windows and have changed it's oil every 3000 miles - nothing more - and today it still drives like a new car with reliability and very good fuel economy! The sole criticism is a higher level of road noise than it should have on an interstate. Other than that it's a really good car.
Peppy 3.2 engine. Handles well on back rods as well as the high speed interstates. Plenty of room for five adults and a very good size trunk. It's exterior and interior are still sharp and show very little wear - and it's still a great looking car.
A good heavy coat of (New England style) undercoating would quiet down the road noise level quite a bit.
