Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #1

May 202004

Concorde 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles


I don't know what caused the failure. In 1998 I bought a new Chrysler Concorde. It has only been dealer maintained. In the last two weeks it has failed to start or run twice - both times requiring towing to the dealership for repair. A diagnostic test revealed a failed headlight wiring harness, Chrysler part number 5083852aa. The repair was made by the dealer by attempting to solder broken pin connectors back together. Cost for this repair was around $400. When the same problem reoccurred a week later I was told the first repair could not be duplicated and a replacement part would have to be ordered and installed. Chrysler part number 5083852aa is no longer made so a substitute part, Chrysler part number 4760623ab, costing about $1200, would have to be ordered and modified to fit my Concorde. This repair, including parts, labor, rental car and towing will run into the thousands of dollars. The reason for having to order the much more expensive part is because Chrysler decided to stop making and supplying Chrysler part number 5083852aa. By the way, Chrysler part number 4760623ab is not a form, fit, function replacement. Why doesn't Chrysler have to continue to make parts for a car that is only six years old?
