1996 Chrysler LHS Owner Comments

problem #4

Sep 012001


  • miles


Power rack and pinion bushing failed to where rack was moving when I turned the wheel giving the driver so much play in the steering it was hard to control the car I assume the front steering linkage which was prematurally worn also contributed to this uncontrollable steering.the left rear trrailing arm completly failed when it rust all the way thru causing the car to be uynsafe to do drive as the axile was splayed out and pushed back. I really give the milage of just 75000 that this was a premature complete failure of the suspension system and a very unsafe condition that could have had serious ramification had I not been able to bring this car under control. As for the A/C evaporator Chrysler fixed trhat as well as the transmission and the recalled fuel rail.
