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.

Concorde 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles


Apparently Chrysler has had a lot of problems with engine sludge. My timing chain broke & blew my engine and I wasn't even driving the car when it happened. The Chrysler manual says to replace the timing chain at 100,000 miles. This happened at 92,000 miles. I have heard that the problem has been resolved 2 years ago, but there was never a recall on this. Now I have to pay thousands of dollars that I don't have to fix something that Chrysler should have recalled years ago. CHRYSLER SUCKS! I will never buy another Chrysler product in my life.

problem #3

Concorde LX 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles

Oil light flickers, car dies. blinding snow storm, main artery to the City of Buffalo, Oil turned to sludge, common problem from research I've done, Chrysler accepts no responsibility. Other sites I've been on revealed far more than three complaints about this problem Someone should gather all of the complaints and dump them in Chrysler's lap. I cannot justify paying $6600 to fix a 2000 Vehicle but am also not in a position at this point to but a new car. If I'm forced to though... it sure will not EVER be another Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep.
