This is our second LHS. We bought it 7 years ago as the second owner with 64k miles on it. We've loved it ever since. We've only ever done routine maintenance until we hit 215k when we had a noise from the differential. We had the tranny and differential rebuilt (it's one unit) and she's been running strong to this day. She's at 226k and showing no signs of giving up. Our friends always want to take our car because it's so comfortable. She always has plenty of power and is fun to drive. We average 24 to 25 mpg between in town and highway which isn't bad for such a large car! Very sad they don't still make them!
This is a good solid family car. I have not noticed the road noise compared to other cars we have owned. The one problem we keep having is that the computerized climate control malfunctions repeatedly and there is NO heat. We call it the ice car. It happens to be white too. We keep having to take it back to the dealership to have the computer reprogrammed at $60 plus tax. What an annoyance for an otherwise great car.
I have had this car now for 6 years and still going strong at 255,000 MILES. Other than routine maintenance I have never had much trouble with it. After 3 deer and a chevy pickup and 255,000 miles still going strong!! I am looking for another one with lower miles prefer another silver one but would consider other than gold.
My Chrysler has been such a reliable vehicle and the design is great. Even though it is now 9 years old, it does not look or feel like a dated car. It is the most comfortable ride - for driver and for passengers.
I purchased the car new and have had a very pleasant and satisfying ownership experience. With the exception of the replacement of an electric door lock actuator, I have had no problems with the car. The car performs well and the 3.5 litre, 250 horsepower engine has plenty of power and gets pretty good mileage. The car has a roomy interior and substantially more rear leg room than most cars, many of which cost substantially more. I can accomodate four men comfortably and get four sets of golf clubs in the large trunk. Try this with most other cars. Overall I have had a very good ownership experience with this 2000 Chrysler LHS.
