1997 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 83,000 miles


Own 1997 Chrysler condorde. Ac/evaporator odor. Technical service bulletin states going on since 1992 with Chrysler cars. Causing airborne pollutants mixed with bacteria and fungi growth. I have asthma, this is a health issue. Chrysler regrets that they have nothing to do with this since wart. Up. issue is this is going on since 1992 why was this not addressed for safety of respiratory consumers. Health hazard to all who have immune problems. This would not happen in wart time period. This takes time to form..end results microbial growth on evaporator core during normal operation, condensation forms in and around ac evaporator. When airborne pollutants mix with condensation, bacteria and fungi growth begins and odor results. This is the responsibility of Chrysler to fix and make consumer safe and not endangering their health. Why was this issue not addressed in 1992 on with all the reports showing this problem. Chrysler..cirrus, Concorde, new yorker, imperial, labaron coupe, town and country sebring Voyager...something is wrong with this picture. Who failed to pick up on this and why should I have to pay to fix something that has been going on since 1992.just purchased a 300C spending $4,0000. Now I won't know if this car will have the same problem in future and endanger my life as I have asthma and this is a respiratory problem. Disappointed consumer worrying about my health with this car. Please help resolve this problem.

Concorde 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80 miles
In 2002 our car overheated we took it into a repair shop. Since the it it was bought in on four different occasions to repair the cooling system, over a span of less than a year. The entire colling system, except for the heating coil has been replaced. Then the check engine light came on. It has had a misfire in cylinder #5 and we have sunk in over a $1,000 and the problem is still not fixed. The mechanics have told us they can't find what is causing it. The light has been on for over eight months. It has been hooked up to computers and still it is a guessing game. We have had the egr valve replaced because this was another guess as to the problem. We have also replaced the fuel injectors, spark plugs, wires, coil, overhead cam sensor, idle air control valve and timing belt. We are sinking more money into this car than we can afford. If there is a problem with this car we should have been made aware of it before we purchased it. We have taken it to three different mechanics and still no-one can tell us what the problem is. Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

I was traveling to work at 4:30A.M. on 10/14/99. Upon the entrance to I-696 ( about 2miles from my residence) the temperature gage ran high and the high temmp light came on upon the entrance ramp. I drove approx 4 miles to my mothers residence which was on the way to work.. at that hour I must depend and rely on the safety of my vehicle. Thank goodness my mother lives on the way to my job 55 miles from my residence. When I drove it to the dealership at approx. 7am (when they open) the gentleman behind the counter said it probably wasn't a hose, ( which I thought because of the coolant loss and over heating) but instead a water pump because it is so common in that make of vehicle. This disturbs me because if he knew immediately what it was because of so many repairs why not a recall on the part? $:30 am is a scarry time to break down on a major highway. I paid for the repairs because I need my vehicle for transportation to and from work. It was $197.60 for labor, 1.60 for a seal, $11.60 for coolant, and $94.50 for the pump,15.00 misc charge, and 7.36 in tax total was $327.66. I do have the part and the receipt of the bill if you need it. I did not receive my car back untill 6pm I was told it took so long because I didn't have an appointment. I wish I could plan and make appointments for emergencies.
