Pros

Excellent power and response from the 3.5 v6, very roomy and comfortable, ac gets real cold on the hottest days right away,

Cons

gas mileage is 19mpg at best and the 3.5 requires 89 octane in the least that you can go to, 87 works but the gas mileage and power goes down too much to make it worth while to use, car can be expensive to maintain at times and requires timing belt and water pump change at a strict 100K mile interval, also intake gaskets usually develop leaks at 120K miles or more.  Cars brakes seem insufficient for its power and weight wish Chrysler would have put on dual piston calipers rather than the small single piston style they use

Better Than Most Of Its Counterparts Until You See The Fuel Economy — Not bad for price to others like it but it is not a leader in its class and you can tell it right away, great power bad gas mileage at a mere 19MPG, though better than most of it's American competitors, it feels like a compromise to what you can get in the Japanese car market for the same year. It's not bad but to get the real value you have to really take care of it meaning you have to spend money on it to keep it on the road and it is not cheap for some of the things you will have to do. Afterwards it's not bad but the main advantage is you can purchase 2-3 of these cars for the price of one japanese car of same class and you can save big from buying this compared to it's American rivals.

Concorde - Nice Ride And Plenty Of Room — Great car and provided enough room for everything I needed to carry. The gas mileage was great for the most part and the car is very sound. The V6 offers a lot of power and was very fun to drive.

Chysler Concorde — The car had a lot of problems but they were to be expected when the car had 73,000 miles when I bought it. Several of the problems were the car overheated, the radiator was rusted out and needed to be replaced, and the VC rod needed to be replaced. Had a nice powerful engine.
