#103 of 1272 Buying tips...
Sep 25, 1999 (10:52 pm)
My 1999 Concorde LX is now 5 weeks old and I am loving it. I had a wonderful purchasing experience with no haggling. I contacted the Fleet Department of my local Chrysler Dealership (Darner Chrysler/Plymouth/Jeep in Mesa, AZ). Minus the rebate, I paid $20,800 (plus tax/tags). My Concorde has the basic features plus CD with 8 speakers, trip computer, split bench seats, 8-way power seats, 16" tires / spare.
I had test driven the vehicle previously - so I knew that I wanted the Concorde... I did my research and knew what a fair price was. All I did was call the Fleet Dept. They gave me a price *less* than the number I had in mind. I showed up the next day and was in and out of the dealership with my new Concorde in two and a half hours. This was by far the best buying experience to date.

Hi to the room!
I am experiencing problems with my driver side window. It won't go down. Also intermittent interior lights flickering. Has anyone else had this or similar problems? Any information on these items would be appreciated
Thanks, Uncle Ho

by the way, nice login name! nobody here can fix your window over the internet so i guess you'll have to just take it to the dealer. darn, huh?

I also have a 99 Concorde LXI and have been having an intermitten problem with my passenger window not working at times from driver window control...the first time I had taken it back to the dealer they said they were unable to duplicate the problem and on my second visit for the same problem they found it to be in the window switch and have it on order and hopefully it will be installed in the next few days.
Good Luck and enjoy your Concorde

Does it seem to happen when it is warm? I think the window sticks and it has nothing to do with the motor. Check it out. Try pushing the window down manually with the switch down.

I live in Hawaii and the temp is always warm. Your idea was a real good one. I tried it. Unfortunately for me it didn't work. In a way I am glad. Now I can take it to the dealer to check out and they will see the motor doesn't work. I can hear the switch clicking but nothing happens.

There are TSB's on those items at- http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/servicemmy1.cfm Just take down the numbers and the dealer can check them out on his computer. I'm not positive about the window motor, but there is a TSB about the wiring on the motor. However, in other Chrysler topics 300M, LHS etc. some people have had to have the motors or switches replaced.
Hope this helps.

They replaced the D/S window motor, adjusted the engine fan belt, checked out but found no stored codes for the intermittent light problem and washed my car in 5 hours.
Normally an appointment is required due to the fact there is only one service center here on the Island. They are in the final stages of development for a new service center located on the Leeward side of the Island. But that probably won't be ready till late 2000 or early 2001.
The current service center can only work on 38 cars at a time. They try to take in 63 cars a day (avg.). The people are some of the most helpful I have ever dealt with. Once, I tried to check out what "5 Star" really meant. I never really got too serious about knowing. Now, I know.
