You are in the Chrysler LHS
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler LHS, Sedan
#219 of 1409 Chrysler came through for me!
Dec 30, 1999 (12:30 pm)
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

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.

#225 of 1409 Resale Value

Based on the poor crash test results and Daimler-Chrysler's typical corporate response. Since I bought this car with the idea of it being a safe car, I decided to get rid of the LHS while the getting was good (or as good as it gets). A '99 with $17000 miles was down to a $20,000 wholesale price. My Chrysler dealer told me that I should be able to get $23000 for it as it was in great condition. I offered it to him for $21,000 and they weren't interested (surprise surprise). My family's safety was worth whatever I lost in the deal. My lost business to my local Chrysler dealer probably is no big deal to him.
#226 of 1409 Am i buying a 2000 LHS??

Tomorrow me and the wife are going to the chrysler dealer to test drive and maybe buy a 2000 LHS. I dont really know alot about the car other than i like the looks. The dealer is offering me the base model with the full size spare for $27,185 it's pretty loaded for a base car. I am a Lincoln/Mercury technician and i do get advantages by buying our product as I can warrenty anything i want well past the "official" warrenty is over, but i dont really like anything we are putting out there. If anyone can help me with any info on this car if its the worst or the best would be greatly appreciated

What crash test results are you talking about??
I find it difficult to believe that you would fire sale a car like this based on some government study given the reliability of government testing.
#228 of 1409 lhs just great

A real nice value at around $1800 less than a 300m if you include the rebate that the 300M dose not have. 1500 miles on mine a fine car with no problems yet.
