1997 Chrysler Concorde Overview

Engine and transmission improvements headlined the Concorde's revisions for 1997. This was also the final model year of the sedan's first generation. The Concorde would be totally restyled for 1998. Chrysler also added a better sound system and moved the washer nozzles to the hood.
The base 3.3 liter V-6 was dropped on the LX model, in favor of a larger 3.5 liter version. This new 212 horsepower engine was still paired with a four speed automatic, but the transmission had also been refined. The Concorde's 0-60 time remained around eight and a half seconds., but the larger engine pulled fuel economy down from 20/28 to 18/26 mpg. Owners reported mixed driving averages around 25 mpg.
Some of these older first generation Concordes are closing in on 200,000 miles. Between 100 and 200k, many drivers warn that troubles struts, timing belts, water pumps, and the radiator may occur. While these are common higher mileage issues, others also reported chronic A/C problems in early ownership.
