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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
