Chrysler LHS Problems
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.
Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.
When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Chrysler LHS Reviews
Nineteen years with this car, and low mileage, has demonstrated an excellent driver. Quick on acceleration, roomy, and enjoyable, the only negatives are some road noise and that the car's suspension system could be modified. This car has been described as "one with heart", in that it has been hit three times while a at a stop sign, but survived those hits like nothing happened. An enjoyable and good looking vehicle.
For those of you in Las Vegas, I have two excellent shops for power seat repair and trunk spring hinge repair.
I bought my 2000 Chrysler LHS with 58,000 original miles and i have put 20,000 miles on in less than 9 months. It is truly a well built car, and as a mechanic it is a fairly easy car to fix yourself with very little knowledge. I was just rear ended in the car and it was sandwiched between two mini vans and the accident totaled both minivans and the LHS only suffered the loss of its front and rear bumpers and it needed a front end alignment. I have had to replace the transmission input and output speed sensors and the fuel sending unit. Overall the interior is a little plastic but the sound quality of the infinity premium sound is quite good for a factory system. This has been a great car, but like every vehicle parts wear out and one should expect to pay top dollar for OEM parts.
I purchased 2001 LHS on 2/7/11. I had never owned a Chrysler before so I really didn't know what to expect. I have owned a Nissan, Toyota, Mercury, Ford, Isuzu and Volkswagon autos in the past. When I decided to get rid of my station wagon I knew I wanted a car with all the comforts possible without breaking the bank. I reviewed thousands of ads but saw this beautiful LHS and knew that was going to be my next car.
Every review I read the owners really gave high scores , average rating 4.8 out of 5.
I test drove the 2001 LHS and immediately fell in love with the design, handling, features, and comfort of the car. The dealer listed the car for $6995 but knew that was overpriced and had a list of similar LHS's in the area $1500 lower. Final purchase price $5300. Now I am excited to make that trip to the store~I get to drive my black beauty.
The LHS didn't come with original keyless remote so I found a remote at the junkyard from a 2006 300M brought it to the dealer and asked if they could reprogram to make it work for my car-the dealer said they could for a $55 fee.
I researched and found a way I could reset the computer and reprogrammed the remote myself! Cost me nothing, I saved over $85.00.
With only 84,000 I my LHS should have another 100,000 miles left in her
I love my lhs it 200k miles and still runs like it brand new
I originall bought a 1996 crysler Lhs. My husband flipped it 5 times and was missing two tires. Immediatly after flipping the car he crunk it back up and drove 4 miles. The car was totaled but the engine was still good. Three months later I bought a 2000 crysler LHS. Both of these cars have been great and I would buy Another one any da of the week. No question about it!!!!
