Chrysler Concorde ProblemsRecall on brake master cylinder due to brakes dragging when pedal is not pressed
There was a recall on the brake master cylinder in order to fix a problem that causes the brakes to drag when the brake pedal is not pressed. If the brakes drag, they will fade, causing overheating and increased stopping distance. The master cylinder is replaced under the recall.
The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.
A defective fuel pump check valve (which maintains fuel pressure in the system when the vehicle is not running) may lead to long cranking times or hard starting (sometimes with stalling). The fuel pump should be replaced. However, if these symptoms are accompanied by Check Engine Light illumination, there may be a problem with the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.

Chrysler Concorde RecallsRecall 04V021000
An internal component in the hood latch may have been manufactured with a crack. The crack could spread and break, which would allow the primary and secondary latch spring to disengage. This condition could allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving, which could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the latch, and replace it if necessary. The recall began September 22, 2003. The Chrysler recall number is C29.
