Used 1993 Chrysler New Yorker Consumer Reviews
The door trim panels did come off but I've been able to put them back on using exterior automotive panel bonding adhesive by 3m, I'm not really trying to advertise or spam its just good stuff, follow the label instructions. Be careful when buying these cars, you have to be VERY careful who you buy them from, their low resale value tends to draw poor people who cant afford to take care of them and thus they abuse them. (I bought mine from an old widow who drove it very carefully) One more thing, replace the transmission control module immediately, its just inside the transmission, remove the transmission fluid pan and then the filter the module will then be visible, remove the 4 bolts holding it and unplug it, replace with new after market module, there was a recall notice issued in 1994 about the 93,s bad transmission control module I love my new Yorker, its old but beautiful and it needs some work, new pumps etc.,.. almost the same with many old luxury cars, think of it this way the car maker designed the car for rich people, it was the best Chrysler money could buy, (the fifth avenue package) rich people tend not to keep their cars very long when they reach usually over 100000 miles they are considered "old" and the rich people go out and buy a new car, thus luxury cars aren't really meant to last very long unless meticulously pampered
We bought this for our son. The car seems real nice so far. It handles well now that we changed the rear air shocks. The thing that you need to know about this car is that it has an electronic control transmission. My mechanic told me to make sure that you come to a complete stop at stop signs. I am happy to have an old mopar friend that gives us these little ideas on how to treat an older car. We have the 3.3 V6 and it is plenty of power for the car. The interior is very plush and and has never been smoked in. The exterior is really clean for the age. Our son should have a good car for sometime as long as he does his maintenance on it. So far so good.
I have owned my New Yorker for a little over 3 years. The seats are VERY comfortable and the ride is decent. However, the fake wood panels on the door fall off easily and I have put well over $1000 into this car because things keep breaking. The windshield wipers and speedometer have broken and it needed a new transmission computer. The air compressor for the automatic load leveling also broke and costs $1500. Also, my cruise control doesn't work and most recently the bracket holding the spring on the left rear wheel broke, making my car drag against the ground. It will cost another $500 to fix, and I don't want to put any more money into this car.
2007 bought '93 NY Salon like new/32K. Bolt-in rear springs from '86 Cougar for $20. sits and rides nice & can carry tools in trunk, passengers, and trailer. Around 51K AT often failed to shift. Manual calls limp mode; locks in 2nd. Switch ign. off/on while driving resets to normal mode, drives fine; seems like electronic problem. Now, limp mode AT delayed engagement from stop; seems like pressure problem. Dealer should know w/o $125. diagnostic; junkyard is full of these cars w/o phys. damage. $8.38 BARS LEAKS AT REPAIR has no effect. $5.27 Trans-X at Wal-Mart fixes both problems for app. a week of driving;? Drill 3/16" hole in rear of AT pan & plug with sheet metal screw to avoid overfill
