Bad cradle bushings grinding noise when driving, turning, and breaking loud bang when overdrive is initiated and very bad alignment front driver tire started smoking and the brake rotor was hot enough to burn flat spots on my finger tips.

I have experienced alot of play in the steering of my Chrysler Concorde 1997. After inspection it was found that the front cradle bushings where worn away. I have owned this car for 2 years. I looked at a web site concerning this and other problems with this and other chrsler models. And is concerned about the issues related to severe and catastrophic failures with these vehicles.

I have a 1997 Chrysler concord. I had a severe clunking noise in front end. After several trips to the garage and almost $1000 later I had replaced both inner tie rod ends, all 4 cradle bushings as well as both swaybars in front end. Not to mention front end alignments after each repair. Then my left tie rod had to be replaced again within a bout a month. The problem was eventually fixed and noise stopped until now. Six months later I'm experiencing the same noises and a lose tie rod again. I have seen all the complaints about Chrysler and note that they don't include the 1997 model as having these problems but I do with my 97 concord. I have 2 children that ride in my vehicle and this is really unsafe. If the tierods break or come lose you can't steer the car. This problem really needs to be addressed by Chrysler and fixed.
