1997 Chrysler Concorde LXi 4dr Sedan


Very dependable car with no large repair expenses, but I also do 90% of my own repairs. I love the 3.5 engine. Most issues after 60,000 miles, standard r/m in my opinion, except the poor quality paint. 30,000-40,000 miles change plugs. At 45,000 miles, replaced hood struts. 52,000, valve cover gaskets. 80,000 miles, EGR valve, solved drivability issue. Found spark plug tubes cylinder 2 & 4, not sealed at bottom, allow oil on top of plugs, removed tubes and applied RTV red sealant. Subframe bushings, sway bar struts, inner tie rod bushings at 90,000. For preventive maint, at 100,000, I replaced all 4 o2 sensors, fuel injectors, coil packs, wires and plugs. Easy car to work on for the DIY.

Best Features

3.5 engine, handling, comfort and easy car to work on for the DIY with little experience. Tons of helpful hints. If you're not afraid to get dirty, very good car to own. Engine and tranny are very solid.

Worst Features

Do not neglect this car or you will regret it. Adhere to the maintenance manual and perform preventive maintenance and this car will be very dependable and easily go 250,000 miles. If you are not mechanically inclined, sell it, it will nickel and dime you to death at the hands of repair shops.
