1996 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 226334 miles
hi there my name is christian, and I was really wondering I just purchase this car named above this past week from a vary good friend car was sold AS IS, so far it looks great underneath the frame looks to my untrained eyes great axel and all i've looked it completely over from what I can tell there isn't too much wrong with it sounds great after sitting for one entire year not started and not moved I live in canada near the niagara falls canada border so you can imagine the weather we have here. So anyways to get to the poingt, since this car had a dead battery and the tire was flat and sat for one entire year I bought a new battery and new tire and rim started the engine checked the fluids and everything is toped up now moving the vehicle is another matter.
the brake rotors were very rusted over from sitting for one year and I was shown the receipts for the new brakes and brake rotors bought 2 years ago and replaced by a qualified mechanic. When we moved the vehicle the left side drivers side rear wheel was locked from all the rust, we costed the vehicle in a large church parking lot and the brakes grabbed right away no question I think they need to be bled a bit though for more pressure should I be concerned about this should I replace the rotors and brake pads, i'm really on the tightes budget and cannot afford to do so will they pass a safety if driven for a while to rubb the rust off I plan on have a licensed mechanic look at the vehicle but just wanted some imput, with all the research i've been doing on the internet and checking out forums everyone says its fine to drive off the rust PLEASE HELP.
