1997 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

When I would place the automatic transmission in reverse on my 1997 Chrysler Concorde the gas pedal would stick and accelerate at a rapid rate. The only way that I could stop the acceleration was by placing both on the brake and turning the key off. Dave dennis Chrysler dealer in dayton, oh., verified this. They found that the cradle bushings were bad which caused the motor to move and hit the throttle which caused the motor to rev. Up in gear. They replaced the cradle bushings and I have had no trouble since. I consider this to be a safety issue. The mechanic at the Chrysler dealer stated that worn cradle bushings were a common problem with K frames used on Chrysler. I can't be the only person who has experienced this problem due to cradle bushings wear.

The consumer noticed that car seemed to be pulling to the left/right. The consumer heard something pop and rattle and then parts started falling from the vehicle on to the highway. The consumer purchased more parts and they failed. The consumer took the vehicle to mechanic who determined the transmission fluid line was leaking. Another mechanic stated that the front end was coming part and was loose. The frame was loose and nothing was holding it together. After replacing all the parts, the consumer received a recall notice. Took it to dealer and they told her that they fixed the problem. But, didn't tell her what the problem was, but now problem is worse. Car was jumping like it didn't shift into gear. Transmission feels like it's slipping. Contact called NHTSA last week and talked to a lady and was told to replace the power steering fluid line. Bought piece of line and was told to buy a vacuum pipe.

There were serious safety defects. The A/C turns on even if locked out, the driver's door leaked, the dash lights blink on/off without control (all gauges), and the airbag light, lights up. Bf the trunk would open due to moisture in the air, at night, the window would steam up completely in seconds, and the speedometer would quit.

Water leaks under air vents under window wipers, body seams let water in car as fast as it will run.have sealed 1 leak with silicone on seam on passenger side. Carpet and mat on driver side now getting wet and stinks. Replaced windshield 6-27-03, so I know that was not the problem. Car bought new and has never been in accident. Dealers service mgr.claims there has not been any problems, but my mechanic, knows a Chrysler mechanic there, and he says there are plenty of complaints. They have even sprayed rubberized undercoating on seams and surrounding areas to seal water leaks.
