2003 Chrysler Concorde Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 302008


  • 60 miles


My 2003 Concorde shut off on me while driving to work on 695 expressway. The engine light came on and I stared to lose power. On 06/30/08 quickly I put my car into neutral and it started back up and continue to work but would not go pass 60 mph. Lucky for me there was no heavy traffic or I could have been seriously hurt. There was no sign that the car was going to lose power as soon as the light pop on the car started to lose power. I took the car to a dealership for service and at that time they told me that it was a shorted upstream 02 sensor. I parked the car and did not drive the car until 09/27/08 to the dealership the car was repaired. On 09/29/08 after driving the car for 12 miles the light then pop back on again and the same thing happen it shut off while I was driving. I took the car back to the dealership at this time they told me there was a code that came during the test stated that the cat converter internal was defective and the down stream 02 sensor. I had that replaced. On 10/02/08 after that repair I drove another 24 miles this time and as usual the light pop back on again but this time the car sound as if it was in neutral or different shift and would not pick up speed with a roaring loud noise. I then pull over to the shoulder and turn the car off and then back on again and it continue to drive normal. Engine light constantly stayed on. I returned the car back to the dealership for repair at this time they said a different code appear and said the P0420, PO430 and they order a ed cat converter and now the left upstream 02 sensor. Which they had already replaced the right converter and both sensors now they are working on the left. Car was repaired on 10/06/08 after that repair I drove the car to work and on the way home the engine light pop back on for the third time, took the car back to the dealership and now the code say PO600 and the PCM and solenoid was programmed and replaced. Now I have to get up at 6am to take the car back.

The air bag light would intermittently illuminate while driving at various speeds of 0-30 mph. The vehicle has been to the dealer and several sensors were replaced. The problem keeps recurring. The consumer requested her money back along with a new vehicle. The transmission shifted erratic at times, there was belt noise at the idle, then engine made a ticking noise through out the day and the dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. The camshaft position sensor was replaced. The rear light bulb was replaced.

My vehicle fails to accelerate at times and it happens all the time. The concord LX starts accelerating okay and then the transmission just stops. It happens at all speeds usually when the car is going around 55 mph then it slowly dies down to about 10-18 mph. I was driving home in very busy traffic on 95 and didn't even realize it was slowing down until it was rather late to try and get to the shoulder of the road. I have had this vehicle to the shop a ttl of five times. Only recently, 9-16-04 did the Chrysler repairman state this is definitely a transmission problem. The part is on back order and you will have to wait. In the us their 27 vehicles waiting for the same part. Yet, the Chrysler trained servicemen are stating we can re-set the computer and you can drive under normal conditions until the part arrives. Today, my family and I were almost killed when the car completely stopped at a busy intersection in town. I have contacted Chrysler from the very start of the problem. Their reply is they will make note of the problem. I didn't feel this was enough so I being determined asked to speak with a supervisor or a manager. The answer I got was they don't take calls someone will get back to me. However, I have been waiting for over a year and no response. I have also written letters, but again no reply from Chrysler and the dealer doesn't want to be bothered either. Which I blame Chrysler because they fail to rectify this problem also. I the mean time I have filed a complaint with the lemon law. Please note this is very dangerous. Especially because most people travel in conversation, with the radio, some on their cell phones, others not thinking they need to be that alert in a brand new vehicle. I was taken off guard three of the five times it has happened to me. Today, it almost cost us our lives. People need to be made aware they are in harms way of being killed when this concord fails to accelerate. 4-01-03,09-03,05-04,07-04,09-04 twice.
