120,000 MILES it overheated. Had towed to garage. Said anti-freeze in oil. Take to dealer. Had towed to dealer. Put on machine said anti-freeze in oil. Would not work on. Said to replace engine with labor would be $7,000.00. To buy rebuilt engine would be at least $4200.00. They said with the miles on it they would not put the money into it. They would junk it.
It is now sitting in the garage and we make payments on it every month! On top of that we had to buy another vehicle. We just talked with another mechanic and he said he would not touch it. Said is worst design of engine he has ever seen. He stated even the water pump is built in the engine. WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING??? You would have to take the engine apart even to change water pump!! I think Chrysler owes us.
Car was great until this happened.
We bought a brand new Isuzu Rodeo in 1992.
We just sold it last year with 298,000 miles on it.
Granted when you even did a minor repair it was very expensive.
But I would rather have the Rodeo instead of a broken down Chrysler Intrepid.
