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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
