The Limited is the best car I've ever owned. I purchased mine with 61K miles on it four years ago. I now have 205k miles and have had to replace the water pump at 196K, brakes at 167K, and 2 sets of tires. Everything still works great and it still runs almost as good as the day I bought it. Of course, I had monthly oil changes and flushed fluids every 70k. I would not hesitate to buy another one.
love the room.
a quick review because i always check reviews before buying anything. I like this car very much, love the room, kids like the back seat very comfy. Only complaint is the size of the engine. Doesnt have that pick up and go when id like, but knowing that i would still buy it agian.
The 250 HP 3.5 in the Luimited seems as responsive & powerful as our '97 (275 HP)Northstar was. Extremely nice mannors in town, back roads and especially on the Hi-way. So far, dependability is the best we,ve seen. Would have prefered 60/40 to buckets and a little softer suspention, but those were small trade offs for the atributs of this handsome automobile.
Big and comfortable, nimble and thrifty
Had a 99, loved it. Never a problem. Got a 04 because it was so good. never a problem. HUGE trunk, GREAT ride, decent gas mileage. Great roadtrip car, can ride all day. Great commuter car, nimble and spunky. There is no better full-size car for the price. Projector beam headlights that go on and off by themselves. And to top it all off, it is BEAUTIFUL. Love the sleek styling.
Most comfortable riding car I've owned
I've owned Buicks, Cadillacs, a BMW, Nissan, Toyota. None have the ride this car has. The drivers seat has to be the best I've ever sat in. I'm not a tall guy (5-10) so I can't speak for you 6'ers but the seat seams to have infinite adjustments. This is the first car I've been able to take on a long road trip in the past 10 years. I'm going to keep it forever. I have replaced a set of tires and brakes (not bad for 70,000 miles). Other than that it's been to the dealer for regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance.
Pretty but not the most reliable
I have owned this car since since Sept 2003. It is the concorde limited with just about every option availble and currently has 31,000 miles on it. The 3.5 with 250 HP is better than the smaller, but it is noisy and has a cold engine tick. Sometimes it's for a few seconds and gone, sometimes it will last a few minutes. One time they did replace the lifters, but it did not improve, in fact that is when the longer engine tick started. Since then the dealers (I've tried 3) have always said the engine is "within specs" I've had the check engine light come on for no apparent reason, sometimes with no affect on the driveability, one time severe hesitation for several miles until I got it home and after a 10 minute shutdown, it went away and never returned. Not impressed with the customer service of manufacturer at all and it's a shame as the features and look of the car great, but potential long term problems are not dealt with.
