Looks and size matter but no Toyota

Vehicle1999 Chrysler Concorde LXi 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought it new for wife. Told her Toyota Avalon would be more reliable with better resale but she would not have it. Bought a gold LXI pretty much on looks and size. Dodge Intrepid was sportier but since we were expecting a child, trunk opening made the difference. Minivans at the time required removal of last seat to put anything more than a few grocery bags in... forget about it! Mostly pleased @6 years /36k miles but is no Toyota in terms of reliability or resale. Same problems you see others write about: transmission speed sensors (my dealer GOT ME for $800!); rubber grommets around headlights; power lock failures; 3 recalls (seat belt bolt, seat back bolt, shifter)
Best FeaturesLooks, comfort, utility/size (especially trunk), good ride/handling/performance for large car; power everything; Infinity sound system; automatic climate control
Worst FeaturesFor this class: less wind/road noise; firmer break peddle; better leather; memory seats (available with LHS/300 model); better stock tires (Goodyear gone in 24k) - replaced w/Yokohama Avid Touring; paint match between plastic & metal on some colors; better quality; battery cable rubs right tie rod
