1993 Chrysler New Yorker Sedan Salon 4dr Sedan


Review

2007 bought '93 NY Salon like new/32K. Bolt-in rear springs from '86 Cougar for $20. sits and rides nice & can carry tools in trunk, passengers, and trailer. Around 51K AT often failed to shift. Manual calls limp mode; locks in 2nd. Switch ign. off/on while driving resets to normal mode, drives fine; seems like electronic problem. Now, limp mode AT delayed engagement from stop; seems like pressure problem. Dealer should know w/o $125. diagnostic; junkyard is full of these cars w/o phys. damage. $8.38 BARS LEAKS AT REPAIR has no effect. $5.27 Trans-X at Wal-Mart fixes both problems for app. a week of driving;? Drill 3/16" hole in rear of AT pan & plug with sheet metal screw to avoid overfill


Best Features

Nice looking family car. Seats 3 in rear, seat belt holders make center 3rd in front uncomfortable, but possible. At stop, hit in rear by car skidding, braking from 50 mph; totaled her's, bent my bumper and one bump absorber. It did jar my neck and back, though. 4 yr. old son was ok in his car seat.


Worst Features

Try upholstery cement to re-attach plastic panels. Salon doesn't have air shocks. Replaced sagging rear springs, power steering & water pumps, and idler pulley by 50K, fuel pump at 70K. What is causing the AT to go into limp mode? Drives fine in normal mode. Filter & fluid change had no effect.

Review

We bought this for our son. The car seems real nice so far. It handles well now that we changed the rear air shocks. The thing that you need to know about this car is that it has an electronic control transmission. My mechanic told me to make sure that you come to a complete stop at stop signs. I am happy to have an old mopar friend that gives us these little ideas on how to treat an older car. We have the 3.3 V6 and it is plenty of power for the car. The interior is very plush and and has never been smoked in. The exterior is really clean for the age. Our son should have a good car for sometime as long as he does his maintenance on it. So far so good.


Best Features

interior, electric everything, decent gas mileage.


Worst Features

get rid of the expensive air ride rear suspension, maybe the electronic transmission also.

Review

Many minor electrical problems. Window cable break, motor fine, dealer would only replace not repair elec. window.$600. AC problems over $600.00 to repair. Transmission replaced at $2800.00, was initially a modulator prob. with the electronic trans. Dealer lied and replaced with a reman. tranny. Doors on headlamps quit working. Could not get the original alarm system door opener clacker. Dealer no longer provides the replacement clacker for the factory installed alarm system. Had to bypass with a new system $800.00. After all the money I put in, it has been a great ride. Oh yea, replaced electronic rear shocks. Inside door mouldings replaced and fell back out after one week of replacement.


Best Features

Comfortable ride, great stereo, cold AC when working. Good looking ride, great color green, spoke wheels!


Worst Features

Electronics,interior and exterior mouldings. Transmission, AC system

Review

I have owned my New Yorker for a little over 3 years. The seats are VERY comfortable and the ride is decent. However, the fake wood panels on the door fall off easily and I have put well over $1000 into this car because things keep breaking. The windshield wipers and speedometer have broken and it needed a new transmission computer. The air compressor for the automatic load leveling also broke and costs $1500. Also, my cruise control doesn't work and most recently the bracket holding the spring on the left rear wheel broke, making my car drag against the ground. It will cost another $500 to fix, and I don't want to put any more money into this car.


Best Features

Plush seats, rear windows roll down all the way.


Worst Features

Better door panels, better transmission, less expensive suspension, overall higher mechanical quality... oh yeah, bigger cup holders too.
