1996 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 012000

Concorde 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


Well as I can tell this is a wide spread problem the rack and pinion, bushings and steering gear failure and tie rod ends. My concord has had a clunk grinding sound for sometime in the steering and now the car is beginning to not turn when I turn the steering wheel. Not every one has a $1000 to $2000 to get this fixed what will it take to get Chrysler to fix the problem a school bus full of children getting hit buy one of the many Chrysler cars with the same steering problem on the road. Please help before someone gets killed if not already.

Steering wheel began to center at 1/4 turns to the left over a period of 1000 miles. Could hear a thumping (loose steering) when making low speed turns back and forth.
