You are in the Chrysler LHS
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler LHS, Sedan
#214 of 1409 1999 LHS performance
Dec 28, 1999 (9:57 pm)
I owned a 1995 LHS and had excellent performance
with it. This prompted me to buy a 1999 LHS which
I did in June of 1998. Unfortunately I had nothing but nagging problems and recently traded
it in. The car was at the dealers more times than
I care to mention, but I do have the documentation. The car never ran right and the
dealers (2 of them) just shrugged. I had oil leaks and idling problems. Chrysler was no help and never did get to speak with anyone in authority. Not to be found. Too bad, I thought I was in for a treat. Since I did not hear from
Chrysler, they will never again get my business.
Back to GM.

My dealer has actually been very helpful to the extent that they can be. I also have the district rep involved who seems to be a straight shooter. I am gonna give the tires a shot (why not, it's warranted) and if that doesn't work, I will have to take measures to give back the car and start over. It's really a shame because the car is a beauty.

Have had my 99LHS since August have about 4,600 Miles on it and so far no problems. Average about 23 miles to a gallon, No wheel problems so far no lock problems. I love the acceleration it is a fun car to drive. Handles well and rides well also. I would recommend it to anyone. Of course I do understand concern about long term reliability and may yet purchase an extended warranty.

Copperhead, did they say what problem the defective tires were causing? I'm being given the choice of tire I want to put on the car, but if Goodyear has fixed the LS's, then I would probably stick with those. The other question is what was the problem with yours that goodyear is replacing them?

My very new, produced in December 1999, 2000 LHS is equipped with Goodyear tires and so far they are fine. I have driven the car only 350 miles with short sprints to 70 mph; the wheels and tires seem to be in perfect ballance. Hopefully they will stay that way.
#219 of 1409 Chrysler came through for me!

Chrysler solved the undercarrage rust problem I had on the new 1999 LHS that I bought last month. A few days after the area rep. inspected the car I exchanged it for a new 2000 LHS. The 1999 was produced in March of 1999 and was subject to a salt bath somewhere from the production line to the dealer's lot (not near salt water). The 1999 also had Goodyear tires that could not be ballanced.

#222 of 1409 '99 LHS Wind Noise
Jan 02, 2000 (12:49 am)
My '99 LHS emits an annoying wind noise coming from the front driver's window near the speaker area. Anyone else notice the same? If so, a suggestion for fix please.

Bring this to your dealer and ask them to look up the ENTIRE TSB on their computer-
Service Bulletin Number: 23-30-98
Bulletin Sequence Number: 235
Date of Bulletin: 9807
NHTSA Item Number: SB602332
Summary: WIND NOISE HEARD FROM THE B-PILLAR FORWARD IN THE VEHICLE WHILE DRIVING AT
HIGHWAY SPEEDS ABOVE 55 MPH OR AT LOWER SPEEDS DRIVING INTO A HEADWIND. *YC
This might be a solution for you. The important info above is the Service Bulletin Number and the Component description.
