Loved my 2000 Concorde - was a good car until the 2.7 engine blew up!!! Had taken very good care of car with oil changes religiously every 3000 miles and transmission changed every 40,000. Thoroughly disgusted to find that Chrysler knew about the problems with the 2.7 engine and did nothing about it!!! The Concorde was the 5th Dodge/Chrysler we bought. Never again - if Chrysler doesn't care about its customers and its products, I don't need to help keep them in business!! Just bought a 2007 Ford!!!
I purchased mine used from a dealer after a three year lease was up by another owner. Drove well for the first while. At 74,000 miiles the 2.7 L engine blew, need to repalce or rebuild. After doing much research I found many major problems with this engine. Oil sludge builds up and the parts do not get lubricated. Chyrsler is not accepting responsiblity. Many, many people are stuck with repair bills in the thousands of dollars. I would not buy another.
If you get the right color, this car's style/looks will be hard to beat. This is a roomy car with sleak line. Back seat leg room may be largest in its class. The one odd problem that I've encountered was a faulty gas cap. $10.00 for a replacement cap - no big deal. Although I've not had this problem, I've heard that Concorde 2.7 motors can go bad due to sludge. I'm wondering if synthetic oil would be a good defense against sludge. Does anyone know?
The body style is just beautiful. Gas mileage is good. The interior is roomy both front and back. This is a great family car and it has style.
