oh geeze!!:lol:...luckily we bever had that particular issue...she was light in the arse, and kinda ugly, but overall she was a good unit...especially after my personal abuse:drunk::lol:I made a lot of money fixing those k cars! One common problem was the front wheel bearings, the engine ground strap was prone to corrosion and once it became detached the current would arc thru the bearings causing premature failure. Just a K-car fun fact!
I was in the market for a new car but then - ended up buying a 1983 Chrysler E-Class, a stretched K-car based LeBaron. I checked out GM and Ford offerings and the K-car and its derivatives still beat the competition hands down. They were some pretty sorry times in the auto industry, I guess, although I didn't have a bit of trouble with my E-class, it was a good looking car in its day and I am still sorry I didn't keep it.I sold 'em back in the day. 1983 and 84 were peak years of my thirty year career with Chrysler. Never sold more cars before or after. Not only K-cars but Horizons and Chrysler Fifth Avenues were hot. The K-car wasn't that great but neither was the competition. However, "Uncle Lee" had many of us believing that these cars were World Class.
