My older brother bought a 1999 Chrysler Concorde from a dealer who is a close friend of mine. (This is where I feel guilty, recommending the dealer.) The car was equipped with 2.7Liter V6.
Last Saturday, he couldn't get it to start. Thinking it might be gasline freeze, he put in some drygas. No different.
Took it to a mechanic friend who knows cars backwards and forwards. Seems that the 2.7 was the Chrysler self-destruct king. Usually between 80 and 90 thousand miles, the timing chain would break, which is usually not a big deal in an engine. In this car, however, the entire engine would stack up internally, making repairs impossible.
Now he got 147,000 miles out of the car, but a replacement engine is $1500 out of a junkyard if you can find one. Seems these had a 100% failure rate.
Followed the recommended service intervals to a letter............sorry charlie consumer!
