#16 of 1408 What/How to do
Jul 26, 1999 (3:33 pm)
I am not sure if this is an appropriate place to place this request; I checked the FAQ's but did not see anything addressing this situation.
I am faced with selling my recently deceased father's brand new, garage -kept, 1999 Chrysler LHS with less than 700 mi. on it.
I obviously have to realize as much as possible on this sale; can anyone offer me any advice as to whether an Internet sale is a good possibility; where such a site may be found; any experiences anyone has had with such a situation; whether I should just place an ad in the paper; and any other help one may offer.
Many thanks to anyone who can help me out at this difficult time.

Don't forget to check out the incentives area here at Edmunds. I believe there is a factory to dealer incentive of $1000 on LHS. It is the end of the year for '99's, so you should be able to do better than invoice + $100. Especially if they offered that to you up front. They must expect you to counter offer. I don't believe the LHS is selling as well as the 300M, so should be able to deal. I bought a 300M a month ago at invoice. You could try using the Acura TL as levarage as even at list it is ~$28,400 loaded.

A friend of mine here at work just got back from the Chrysler dealership. She has a 1995 LHS that died on the freeway on Monday night. Apparently the engine temp rose and then the engine shut down. The whole engine if fried, I mean melted belts and warped oil pan, etc. They tried to tell her it was the water pump, but there is no water or oil in the engine. She said this is not the first problem she has had with the car, it now has 46,000 mile on it so the warrantly is up.
Anyone have any feedback about problems they have had and any action she may be able to take before she spends $5400 on a rebuilt engine?

WOW!!! That's not even 12,000 miles a year and the car is DEAD! This shouldn't be if she maintained the car regularly. I'd try calling Chrysler to see what they say. Then, when they say-"sorry", I'd get a good lawyer and see what could be done.

Anybody has a 1999 Chrysler LHS out there that have at least 30,000 miles in it and could you tel me if you have any problems in it.
#21 of 1408 2000 LHS

Hello. I am still tremendously amazed on how may forums, topics, etc are on the 300M and barely
NOTHING on the LHS!! I guess Chrysler only sold
1-5 "99" models. Its even hard to get someone to answer questions/opinions on it too? Anyone know
My questions are:
1. With the 2000 model now produced, has any of the problems with the 99 models (wind noise, window sticking, etc) been corrected?
2. Did I read SOMEWHERE that GOODYEAR owns MICHELIN? If so, does that mean the EAGLE tires
that come stock are as good as any? I would have
thought that the Michelin PILOT? would be superior?
3. It was interesting to read that Chrysler LOWERED the price of the LHS (I read this here).
Hopefully that info is right cause a local dealer I recently asked said it went up 3-500! (without
reviewing the invoice)...typical info from sales!

you LHS guys are lucky that Mustache has not visited your little forum to share his thoughts and lecture you.

I also noticed that the LHS topic has MUCH less activity than 300M. Possibly the LHS looks too much like the Concorde, hence sales are slower. 300M is quite distinctive and aimed at Euro market, unlike LHS. Could be another factor.
LHS is still a beauty, though.

I've noticed too that this topic is "dead". If it doesn't pick up soon, the hosts will zap it! Maybe the LHS folks are more mellow and laid back then the 300 owners. It seems that whether we like our car or don't like it, have had problems or no problems, we're still willing to share our experiences good or bad in the hopes that we can help someone else.

I would bet that when the 2000 models hit the showrooms on 8/16 things will pickup.
