1996 Chrysler Concord?

6 posts in this topic

Any thoughts on these cars? I believe it has the 3.3L engine with about 100,000 miles. Looking for a first car for my daughter.

Besides some trans concern here are there and evap coil's for the a/c going left and right (some other items comp. o-rings and condensor's.), they are not bad cars.

I would have it checked over or check over your self. It should be a good first car.

Good luck!

Overall they are a pretty sound car for a chrysler. There are a few other minor issues that they have besides the ones that shack mentioned. The screws in the airbox get stuck in the nutted inserts. when you try to check/change the air filter they will not come out. Good luck trying to change the headlight, The long torx screws that hold the headlamp assemblies in place are usually frozen. The alternative is to remove the front bumper cover to remove the whole assembly to change the bulb. Ball joints and inner tie rod end bushings are to really common issues with the front ends on these.

Definitely get a used vehicle inspection before you buy. The price may be right but if you have to sink a couple thousand into it to make it road worthy it would not be worth it!

I can't remember if it was the Concorde or the Dodge Intrepid that had a lot of steering issues. Pretty expensive repair if thats the one I'm thinking of. There are probably better choices as far as fuel economy, but its a nice big car if safety is your main concern.

L.H.S's, Concords and even Intrepids where funny.

Some customers went for ever with out having almost any issues and some customers had nightmares ever week or month.

These series of cars where a good candidate for the car analogy "was it built on a Friday or a Monday. grin

Thanks for the input guys, but I decided against it, The guy was "factually challenged". turns out it has 170,000 hard miles on it.
