1993 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.5 from North America
This is the biggest piece of garbage Dodge ever put out, I will never buy another
Electrical trouble first trip to Vancouver Island. Stranded for 5 days.
Door stays wore out 4 times.
Door hinges wore out and replaced twice.
Four water pumps.
Four front wheel bearings.
Cruise control twice.
Transmission total failure at 100 000 km.
Multiport fuel injection housing cracked in half and the top of the motor caught on fire.
Would never start in -20 or colder Celsius even if plugged in all night. It did after the motor was changed.
Spun a crank bearing, new motor after 190 000km. 6500.00 just for the longblock, at this point the car was only worth 5000.00, so we put in a used one with different fuel injection and it started in the cold great.
Air conditioning only worked for 4 yrs out of 10.
Electrical system meltdown on a cold winter morning.
Donald Trump cannot afford the repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It was the first year for these. Maybe they still had to sort out the bugs.
Car people say never to buy a first year model of any brand... because of this very thing.
But if nobody buys a first year model, then it doesn't sell. And if it doesn't sell, why would the car companies continue to sell it?
Kind of a catch 22. So SOME people have to be the ones to buy them the first year... be the 'testers' of sorts.
