2002 Chrysler Concorde • 14,000 miles
We are wanting to purchase a 2002 Concorde LX for $2900 with 140,000 miles. I was told to stay away from dodge stratus and intrepid, and now I am hearing that the concorde is very similar to the intrepid. Want to make a smart purchase please help!!

The last and best advice I have is to take a refrigerator magnet with you to check for Bodo and/or accident repairs. don't put all your trust into a Carfax as a lot of stuff slips by. Purchase an anti-freeze tester and test the anti-freeze. Also, look at the tranmission fluid. Get a flashlight and even a magnifying glass to look at transsmission fluid and engine oil in light. Sunlight will work well too. The transmission fluid will smell burnt and look dark if it is old or bad. The light and magnifying lens is to look for particles of metal. That is a sign that the engine is stating to wear out and will need a rebuild. The easier the particle is to see, if you can see it with the naked eye, that is not to good, the worse the wear and if the metal is copper colored or brass that is a sign the motor is on it's last leg.
Good luck and researhing and comparing findings is the best way to go. Also note how many concordes do you see for sale and on the road? That is a sign of how long there service life is. Remember the Chrysler Sebring? A lot of people bought those and I seldom see them on the road. They are the sister car to the Mitsubishi Eclipse which was also sold in even larger quantities, but you don't see a lot of them surviving. Look around for old honda civics, you see a ton of them because they last a long time.
I hope this information helps.
