Reliable so far, but likely

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I'm driving this car as a hand-me-down with ~160k miles on it. It has no A/C, trunk lid hydrolics gone, weather stripping is falling completely off, two windows won't fully roll down, driver's side window has gone off-track twice, the front passenger door won't unlock without reaching over and unlocking it from inside, the auto-lock/unlock sounds hideous now, and the front passenger door speaker crackles (not from loud music, this car came from my sweet little grandmother.) The performance is acceptable for daily driving, but has unacceptable passing acceleration. About the only good thing I can say about this car is that it's definitely roomy and the seats are comfortable and durable.

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I've heard nothing but horrible things about the 2.7, yet I've never experienced nearly the amount of hardships anyone else seems to have with this engine. My wife (fiance at the time) bought this car in July '04 with 31k miles on it. It's been nothing short of a workhorse for us. Of course at around 50k miles, the check engine light came on, and looking around online, I found tons of reports of the dreaded engine sludge fiasco, but it seems mine was a later 2001 model that avoided this issue. The light turned out to be for an emission issue that didn't affect how well the car ran. Now, in 2013, nearing 150k miles, I still drive it 60 miles a day with minimal upkeep.

Love and hate relationship

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I bought the car in 03 with 67k miles in 07 120k 60k later timing chain went 130k all four struts needed to be replaced and the front hubs were shoot. Now a 167k the transmission axle on the passenger side is loose and and noisy. Father don't buy this car for your daughter's first car to take to college. Other minor issues are door windows move slow and the window control switches won't stay in place. When i bought the car it rode great and still looks great but every 30 thousand i have to put in the shop for a major repair i love the car but i don't think i would buy it again.




It's been a love/hate relationship

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased with 29,000 miles - at 92,000 had to replace my engine. Although I had done oil changes regularly the engine was caked with gunk! I still owed...so I replaced it and am using premium gas and better quality oil. So far with the refurbished engine I've put 72,000 miles on it. Other than the car just up and dying on me the one time, it's been extremely reliable, starts great, still runs smooth and has been roomy enough to accommodate my growing children. The paint job still shines. When I'm ready to purchase another car I will consider a Chrysler again, with a different engine.

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I previously owned a '96 Concorde with 3.3 L engine; a great car. We bought this car used, with the 2.7 L engine. The engine selfdestructed at less than 52,000 miles due to the timing chain problem. There are many web sites detailing this problem with this engine. Chrysler denies any help. Changing the headlamp bulb requires removing the front fascia!

Beware the lx model with

Vehicle: 2001 Chrysler Concorde LX 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased the car used (with the 2.7 liter engine) as a a roomy rather fuel efficient, full sized family vehicle. The car had 65,000 at the time of purchase. Less than a year later, at 75K, the internal water pump failed and flooded the engine with coolant, and also a loose exhaust valve guide caused the valve to wiggle and not seat seat properly, in turn causing damage to the valve seat. Hence the cylinder wouldn't hold compression. The total cost of repairs was $2,481 !! The 2.7 liter has an awful reputation of premature, catastrophic failures. Research the web!! I did, but it was too late for me! Stay away from the 2.7. Trust me.
