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.

    • In short, "the main reason politicians are deathly afraid of economic downturns:,,,
    • Well, the dismount is the part that everyone remembers, and will make or break the entire routine. 
    • The overwhelming majority of that money that they are making is speculative and has no tangible value such as banking, insurance,real estate etc and that value can vaporize very quickly. When the debt reaches the breaking point there are going to be a lot of urbanites figuring out that corn and potatoes don't grow on asphalt or concrete. We will see then where the value is.  
    • Well, he's right,you know? Oh yeah, those two women just made the list. 
    • There was not much mentioned about the debt this cycle because both side's economic policy plans called for no change in course. So am curious......now that Palin and Coulter are saying the same thing "we" are about Trump.....does that mean they are mad and crying liberal tears as well? Not so ironically, it sure is looking like Billghazi and D2E are the actual libtards in the room.  
    • Should be cold enough the next few days to do that.
    • I like to let hang for two weeks if the weather is cold.
    • This morning, while in the garage feeding my dog, I saw a mouse running along the wall and behind the tool bench. Thirty seconds later, "SNAP!" There it was. A dark mouse in it's prime pelt giving the last few kicks in the trap before expiring.   Do you guys like your mouse meat fresh or do you allow it to hang a few days like you would a deer?
    • So in Minnesota's case then, wouldn't it make more sense for the metro area to return control of the resources and ownership of public lands in the northern part of the state to the northern counties so they wouldn't be such a burden on the metro area?   Or is it really more about the power than the money?
    • That's because you still have many that are still fighting the 2016 election cycle and/or are upset because their gal lost the election and can't seem to be able to recover from that fact.  It's over. Trump will now be the president. So going forward, he is now going to have to earn my vote come 2020. And it will be based 100% on what I see and my own evaluation of his performance in the next 4 years. Not what the NYT's says about him or his critics. For now, it's all I can do   She's 100% right. Especially her comment regarding the debt. Little was mentioned regarding our debt this election cycle. Her quote; “When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” she asserted.   Can't be stated enough. This is but one small example of how government can end up creating market distortions
