I have a 1994 Chrysler Concorde for sale, neing offered in Buffalo NY. here are the details but before you read further, IT HAS TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS.

Asking: $700/BO

Engine: 3.3L V6

Mileage: 130,000

Color: Red/Grey Two Tone. Grey Interior.

Accessories: AC, PW, PL, Power Trunk, Remote Lock/Trunk, Power Driver Seat, Dual Front Air Bags, ECC, 4 wheel power disc w/ ABS. Everything works. Windows are also tinted, except it came off driver side front window.

Condition: Very well taken care of. Body condition is GREAT. Some minor scratches and dings, no dents. Less then normal wear and tear. The only spot where there is rust is on the trunk lip. Very common for these cars, no other rust. Undercarraige is great. Car starts and runs great. Motor is still VERY strong. Very good runner, doesnt burn, no noises or stalling/stuttering. Ne wplugs/wires recently. Good on gas. Interior is great as well. No missing panels or anything. No cracks/scratches. A couple tiny stains here and there but nothing major.

What it needs: First and foremost, it has transmission problems. It will run and drive but will eventually slip out of gear and revert to limp home mode. I understand this is a very common problem with these cars and may be a very easy fix for you. About a month ago I had to move the car and instead of taking forever to go into gear like it usually does, it went right away and while I was moving it, didn't slip. It's intermittent.

It also needs a Tie Rod inner bushing replaced. Can be done, not a major job. In fact I already bought the bushing (It was $11) I just never put it in. Will be included.

Also needs a radio. I took out the stock to put in my system awhile ago, and when I got a new car I took the radio out and no longer have the stock radio.

It has been sitting since November and therefore probably also needs new brakes (Rotors/pads. Not expensive, especially if you do it yourself)

Also, the driverside amber (turn signal) plastic cover is broken. It still works, just the plastic cover needs replacing. Headlight is still fine. Also another easy fix.

Basically, this is a very nice car, in great shape and a great driver, except for the transmission which can cost as little as $75, or as much as $900 for a rebuild. Even with a $900 rebuild and $700 for the car, you are getting an excellent car for $1600. The KBB Value is $2300.

I want to leave this up to someone who knows about these cars and can fix it if they want a good car. I tried taking it to a shop and had trans fluid replaced. Didn't help and they said it needs a rebuild but I read on the allpar boards about how this problem is very common, and since I already have another car I'll leave this to someone else.

I'm going to look over the car again tomorrow during the day and post if there is any other information. Feel free to ask any questions.

Did something nasty happen to the passenger side valve cover? In pic 5 it looks like you went crazy on it with a hammer? Or is that just how the light is shining on it?

Pretty sure it would have to be the light. I've never done anything like that to any car, and I would remember it being like that. I double check in a bit and tell you for sure, but I'm almost positive it's the light.

Edit: I just checked, and it's definately just some crazy light. The valve cover is 100%
