I had my LHS for about 7 years. I have had many cars over the years and I have to say that this Chrysler was my favorite. It had a great ride and was extremely comfortable. On top of this, the gas mileage was better than I or most people thought it would be. The car was reliable and I enjoyed driving it quite a bit. I had to give it up when the expenses to repair it were more that its value. Shouldn't complain....it had 221,000 miles on it at the end. It was a great car. Since Chrysler stopped making the LHS in 2001, I decided to find and buy one of those. The "new" one has big wheels to fill, but it looks promising.
In '97 I leased this car for two years and loved it. Ten cars later, I couldn't get this LHS out of my mind, so I bought one with 100,000 miles on it last month. New tires and $2500 in mechanical repairs made it just like I remembered it. Too much? Sure, but I LOVE THIS CAR! It's a dream to drive, the seats are comfortable, the cabin is huge and so are the moon roof and trunk. The styling is timeless. Recent British guests were amazed at this car and couldn't believe it was 10 years old. After driving a bunch of new utilitarian cookie-cutter cars the last eight years, I'm finally happy again in my 1997 LHS.
Was happy with the LHS. At 100,000 miles I suddenly had several problems, sucked in intake gasket, AC coil had to be replaced, automatic climate control had to be replaced. After approx. $2000 worth of repairs it was good again until I traded it at 130,000 miles. I traded if for a like kind, 2003 Concorde Limite, what a mistake that has been!!!!! Wish I had my LHS back with its 130,000 miles!
I've owned my 1997 LHS for 3 years now and what to say? Love it! Car has been garage kept by this 78 year old gentleman and had only 59,000 miles on it, brand new car still. Had a few fixes over the last year, bad tie-rod, transmission line leak but overall regular maintenance will keep this car on the road for little money. I like my comfort and I am well served with this roomy ride. Of the 20 some cars (new and used) i've owned, this has got to be 'the' best vehicle i've had.
