problem #2

Mar 212007

Concorde 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles
On 03/21/2007 I was coming from work and smelled gasoline, on having my vehicle checked by a local mechanic, it was discovered that the fuel rail and the fuel line had become disengaged. As I had the fuel rail changed under a recall order back in 11/2007, I contacted the dealer that had completed the work back then. I was advised that if it was their fault the repairs would be made at no charge. If not I would be charged $75 per hr. It was agreed that the dealer would pick up the vehicle on 03/22/2007. As of 03/25/3007 my vehicle had still not been picked up. I am unable to drive said vehicle because of "gasoline" squirting out from the disconnection and pouring out on the highway and on the vehicle.

Steering rack replacement in 1996 Chrysler Concorde is very costly and problematic. Had I known about such an inherent bad design I would never have purchased this vehicle, let alone any Chrysler product. My particular unit has failed at the low mileage of 110,000 and became dangerously close to failure! furthermore, during the repair process many other components had to be replaced due to the required tear down to access the failed steering rack components. In addition to the steering rack failure, the fuel rail gaskets also failed in leakage at the same time.
