Chrysler Concorde 1996

Safety incident date:
July 14, 2003
Location:
Miami Springs, FL

when driving my 1996 chrysler concorde, i noticed the front end shaking, and a very loud thumping noise when starting and slowing down. after taking the car to my mechanic, he found that the entire rubber end of the joint was gone. only the metal bushing remained. the mounting bushings that hold the forward cradle or subframe on are completely rotted away. the noise is from the entire front cradle of the car traveling up and down the mounting bolts and slamming into the floorboard of the car. it looks as though the only thing holding the front of the car and drivetrain in place is the washers on the head of the bolts. if the washers or bolt had broken, the front of the car would have separated from the rest of the frame, and obviously my daughter would have totally lost control. this is a very dangerous and constly problem that should be communicated to other concorde owners. *ak

today i took my 2005 chrysler pacifica into the shop for new tires, i was told they could not do an alignment because the tie rods looked bad and to take it to the dealer, i did. i then found out from my local dealer that unfortunately that is all they see is chrysler pacificas...my car has less than 45k miles and i have been told that the entire front end suspension is worthless and right now i have bad gear boxes, a broken engine mount, and can count on having front axel problems as well. the dealer also had a 2004 brought in today and that car and mine were raised up and the repair men showed me and everyone else around the identical problems on both cars. *tr

while vehicle was having over $1000.00 in unexpected repairs for defective parts (shattering drive plate, $550.00 exhaust crossover pipe) it was discovered that both strut towers have rust perforation and are structurally unsafe. i have been told that this is a common problem that all chrysler minivans manufactured between 1996 and 2000 experience. i have owned this vehicle since new and it has always been well maintained, garaged, and well cleaned and waxed. i am always particular about washing road salt off the underside of my vehicles frequently. i am particularly upset that chrysler knows about this problem, and has the nerve to charge me over $1000.00 to fix the defect in their vehicle. without this repair my vehicle is dangerously unsafe to drive. i am just thankful that i was alerted to the problem before it killed my family. *jb

85,000 miles on a well maintained vehicle. noticed noise in chassis especially turning and over bumps. rear crossmember (part of engine cradle) rusted through on both sides and nearly broken free from left and right frame rails. contacted chrysler only to learn that "select 2002 and 2003 pacifica models in high corrosion areas" have extended warranty (up to 150,000 miles) for this exact issue. unfortunately chrysler will not cover 2004 models!!! very expensive to repair! sad that chrysler will not stand behind their vehicles.... especially since they obviously know it's an issue! *tr

i took my care into the sear auto center in annapolis, md for a tune up and also asked them to check for the knocking noise under my hood as is was affecting my steering and making the car hard to steer when going around curves. i was told that the front end suspension needed to be replaced badly as the parts were severely rusted. i was also told that i would have to leave the car at the facility overnight as they were having problems removing the old parts due to heavy corrosion on the old parts and it would take more time to get the parts off and replace then with new parts. in december of 2011, i purchsed new tires and was also told that i needed to purchse new wheels because the current wheels on the vehicle were starting to rust. in september, i had my brake pads replaced and was also told that i needed new rotors because those were also rusting. i do not live in a flood zone, nor have i ever had my car in a flood. i was made aware of a recall by chrysler yesterday of its 2004-2005 jeep brand due to corrosion and wanted to submit this as there may also me chryslers such as mine that have had corrosion issues from normal usage. a few years ago, i also had to have the rear differential serviced due to a leak and this may have also been due to corrosion. *tr

took car to the shop for routine schedule maintenance. the mechanic said that the subframe was severely damaged by rust and recommended replacing it as soon as possible. he stated that is very dangerous driving a car in this condition. i googled " pacifica subfame rust" and find out that this issue is huge. the mechanic said that this deterioration is not normal. there should be a recall campaign to make chrysler aware of this problem. *tr
