Chrysler Concorde owners have reported 21 problems related to automatic transmission (under the power train category).
The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Concorde limited edition. The contact stated that the vehicle would stall while driving and jerk when shifting into the next gear. Occasionally, the gears would stick when attempting to shift. The vehicle speed would increase to 5000 rpms, the engine and oil light also illuminated on the instrument panel. A local mechanic rebuilt the transmission; however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified, but denied any assistance to the contact. The failure mileage was 160,000 and the current mileage was 170,000.

1. "busy rattle", not loud, but continuous, most noticeable on smooth roads above 30 mph, from front frame sub-assembly, four mounting bolts. The sub-frame assembly is also called the "motor carrier" and is bolted from the bottom up to the frame (above). Each bolt goes through a large rubber bushing (also called an insulator). With 75,000 thousand miles and no oil leaks, the rubber bushings are all dried out and flaking apart. Each insulator cost over a hundred dollars and is only available from Chrysler. The cost of replacing via a quote from pep boys is over seven hundred dollars. The replacement parts are made from a hard yellow plastic type material and should be more durable. 2. According to the mechanic at pep boys the vibration will wear the bolts and eventually the engine could drop down. 3. Pep boys recommends the bushings and the bolts to be replaced. The new bushings from Chrysler have a 1 year warranty. Reviewed the complaints for this problem and did not see any accidents caused by the rattle or a report that the engine actually could fall out on the road. The data base is not well organized as it is segmented by monthly reports. I can see how the noise might cause one to increase the radio volume and not hear an emergency vehicle. These bushings will be replaced.

Complete loss of transmission. This transmission has been properly taken care of -two fluid changes; when I went to get it repaired at the Dodge dealership I was advised there were so many parts on back order for this problem that it would be a month or better to get the transmission repaired. Total replacement became necessary. My opinion is -if there are so many on "back ordered " that it will take a month or more to fix the transmission this is a major problem across the fleet. . . One I should not completely pay for.

: the contact stated the automatic transmission would not shift properly at 40mph which caused the vehicle to stall and operate at a reduced speed. The transmission light on the dash panel illuminated afterwards. The vehicle was seen by a dealer. The service department cleared the failure code and the light no longer illuminated. Afterwards the problem persisted. The vehicle was seen by an independent transmission repair shop. The mechanic suggested replacing the valve pan or the transmission would lock up. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer and relinquished any ownership of the vehicle.

My vehicle fails to accelerate at times and it happens all the time. The concord lx starts accelerating okay and then the transmission just stops. It happens at all speeds usually when the car is going around 55 mph then it slowly dies down to about 10-18 mph. I was driving home in very busy traffic on 95 and didn't even realize it was slowing down until it was rather late to try and get to the shoulder of the road. I have had this vehicle to the shop a ttl of five times. Only recently, 9-16-04 did the Chrysler repairman state this is definitely a transmission problem. The part is on back order and you will have to wait. In the us their 27 vehicles waiting for the same part. Yet, the Chrysler trained servicemen are stating we can re-set the computer and you can drive under normal conditions until the part arrives. Today, my family and I were almost killed when the car completely stopped at a busy intersection in town. I have contacted Chrysler from the very start of the problem. Their reply is they will make note of the problem. I didn't feel this was enough so I being determined asked to speak with a supervisor or a manager. The answer I got was they don't take calls someone will get back to me. However, I have been waiting for over a year and no response. I have also written letters, but again no reply from Chrysler and the dealer doesn't want to be bothered either. Which I blame Chrysler because they fail to rectify this problem also. I the mean time I have filed a complaint with the lemon law. Please note this is very dangerous. Especially because most people travel in conversation, with the radio, some on their cell phones, others not thinking they need to be that alert in a brand new vehicle. I was taken off guard three of the five times it has happened to me. Today, it almost cost us our lives. People need to be made aware they are in harms way of being killed when this concord fails to accelerate. 4-01-03,09-03,05-04,07-04,09-04 twice.

We own a 2001 Chrysler Concorde that has tranmission failure at 59,000 miles. This is the second person our community with the same vehicle to have this problem. I do have the name and address of this person. I have contacted Chrysler and been informed that the warrenty has expired and it is my problem to fix. It seems that I have heard of additional persons having this same problem, but I could not be sure of this.

I was reading the news and found the article about a probe being broadened on the Dodge durango to cover the Chrysler sebring also. I was wanting to make a complaint or bring to your attention that I have a 1998 Concorde lxi and this same thing where the car can be shifted out of park without a key in the ignition. This has happened several times, luckily it has never caused any serious injury besides a twisted ankle or two. It is a rather serious problem though. I do not even need to have my foot on the brake to shift it out of park with or without the key on.
