Nice when newer, but...

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler LHS 4dr Sedan

Like anything else on wheels, problems start cropping up when the years add on...Bought mine used at just under 130K...At that time, everything worked, except the air conditioner, which the lack of, really has an overall effect on a full-time automatic climate system...Heat will come on in the middle of a hot summer day, and will take it's grandiose time to do its job come the winter...With these cars, servicing/replacing the A/C is a MUST, and that can get expensive...That done (expensive job), everything was fine until about the 176K mark, then it was just one thing after another, (stabilizer, cv's, brake lines, rotors)...Then the engine had some major issues, and it was time to junk it...




Pleasant surprise

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler LHS 4dr Sedan

Bought 1996 LHS with 87,000 miles on it. I love this car. Fun to drive and real smooth. fair on gas, very fast. Better than a Caddy. I wish that they still made this model. Great stereo and nice leather.

Good cruiser

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler LHS 4dr Sedan

Bought in 1999 with 34K. Now has 130K. Water pumps,Thermostat, front end, and A/C problems. $1200 to fix A/C--so I didn't/havent't. Still great mileage,great room,great ride. Trunk and Interior are HUGE. I did lots of road miles, til last year. This is one great hi-way Cruiser. 27 mpg while cruising at 82 mph on Interstate.Handles fairly well. About 18-20 around town. Still looks pretty new at 14 yrs old.Love the leather seats,layout etc. ( I'm over 6 ft) Stereo--Great Sounds. I also have 2 Mazda 626 5-spds. (25/34 mpg)(1995 & 1997) I'd buy any of these vehicles again.




Chrysler lhs, good luxury sedan.

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler LHS 4dr Sedan

Very pleased with this big luxury sedan, very good performance and comfort, huge trunk. If I could go out and buy a new one today,(April 9 2009),I would be down at the dealers right now. Surprisingly good fuel consumption for this large, powerful car, my long term fuel economy is 20.1 mpg over 105000 miles. mixed city and freeway driving. The power steering rack failed early, but was replaced under warranty by the dealer at no cost to me. The car went though a series of coolant pumps until we discovered that there was a design or manufacturing error in the timing belt tensioner mounting. Addition of a spacer (~0.25in thick) between the tensioner and the mounting flange cured the problem




Second lh and love this

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler LHS 4dr Sedan

Bought the car w/104k mi. Now has 116k, no major problems. Does need new trans mount, broke 3 weeks after purchase. Gas mileage is good for a car this size, about 24mpg driving 90mi roundtrip to work each day. This is the second LH car I have owned. First was 94 New Yorker that started to fall apart after 100k. Build quality is much better this time. Cassette broke recently will replace w/factory CD or CD/cassette soon. Will need new rod bearings soon, seems to be a problem w/these after about 100k, only knocks on morning startup until oil pressure builds. Every power accessory still works. Overall I love this car.
