You are in the Chrysler LHS
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler LHS, Sedan
#357 of 1409 Question for carnutpa
Apr 22, 2000 (3:41 pm)
My prior inquiry was #369. I'd like to hear about problems with your 1994 LHS. At this point, we're not planning on buying another Chrysler because of steering/front end problems that have been ongoing since day one. Also, we're not happy with having to wear earplugs as we travel down the highway. The road noise is much more than we bargained for. We are looking at a Marquis as a possible next vehicle. Please advise about problems with your 1994. Thanks so much.

I am considering buying the LHS, the problem is that I was considering the 300M and only get double speak when I ask the dealer the difference. He tells me if I am really macho, I'll like the 300M. I think it is a little "kid" looking for me, what is this LHX? Does this take the LHS and make it a Gen-X car. What features over either the LHS or 300M should I look for and when will it be available in the market. I am prepared to wait through the end of this model year, but am moving out of a '95 Mercury with 219987 miles and am getting nervous.

Added Question: I am a California buyer, should I be able to get a deal at $300-$400 over invoice

The LHX,will be the next LHS generation,the car will be much more luxurious,refine,different style,and maybe a HEMI V-8 RWD.
So I think you should buy now the 2000 LHS,and wait until 2003 to have the LHX,anyway the LHS is beautiful and a good car,it has a lot of class!

I traded my 1995 LHS for a 2000. The 95 had 52K miles and no problems. It still ran great and looked good. Only reason I traded was the great looks of the new one and I got two new toys, moon roof and CD player. Car previous to 95 was a 90 Lincoln Continental. What a dog that was. Blew a head gasket at 60K. Real problem was that in warm weather it would just quit running on the open road. Call a tow truck and by the time it got there it would start up. Drive to dealer. Couldn't find a problem and off again for another dose of the same. New LHS is a great car. No road vibration in the gas pedal on mine and no pits in chrome wheels. It has 6k miles. I got it in Jan. It was a demo with 3.8k when I got it.

do you have any other future info regarding the LH cars? Changes to the 300m and Intrepid? Maybe give the 300M 325 hp V8, so the Intrepid can be much "lower" with, say, a 275hp V6, 28mpg, 0-60 in 6 seconds? Just add larger outside mirrors and memory seat to Intrepid. Can you tell I am trying to upgrade the Intrepid to all that I want, but still keep it $5,000 less than 300M? You will grant my wish, Aladdin?

Just turned 10k on my Y2K LHS leased in October, shiny wheels, CD changer, no hole in roof. Only problem: window wind noise at 70+mph. Dealer still can't figure out how to program the radio so the time is displayed when the radio is off (owner's manual say to ask dealer to do it!!!) I've owned a number of U.S. "luxury" cars, de Ville, Continental, STS, but none better than the LHS, which is far and away the best value in its class, IMHO, at least $10k less than the current STS. Great road car, solid, handles well, HUGE trunk, if that's as important to you as it is to me, and very comfortable. Can be noisy on certain road surfaces, but since it is very quiet on others, I am inclined to think other cars would also be noisy on that particular surface, but I have no basis for an A-B comparison. The only thing I've had to to in 10k is change oil and rotate tires. BTW, I'm getting about 21.5 mpg in city/expressway driving, based on computer readouts. All in all, so far a great car. Also BTW, until I read the discussion above about an auto-leveler, I hadn't realized it didn't have one. Obviously, if one were to carry heavier loads than I do, it would be nice, but I haven't missed it.

But, if I can count on you as my Fairy Godmother (just a phrase, not an orientation) I will always seek your posts, loaded with sweet information.
Thanks for responding.
#366 of 1409 1996 LHS, RUMBLING NOISE
Apr 28, 2000 (1:56 am)
I purchased a 1996 Chrysler LHS with 46,000 miles last fall. Shortly after I bought the car I noticed a rumbling or growling noise that periodically came from under the hood. This usually occurs as you first start moving forward, after shifting from reverse to drive, although it can happen any time when first moving forward. The noise only lasts for an instant and there is a hint of vibration with it. At night it appears that the headlights dim slightly when the noise occurs. The Chrysler dealer has been unable to locate the cause and the factory power train warranty expires in mid August. Anyone had a similar problem with this model?
