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

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.

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.

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.
