1994 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.3 from North America


A good way to go into debt


Air conditioning broke just like 90% of other Dodge Intrepids from that year.

Transmission had to be replaced for lots and lots of money just like about 80% of other Dodge Intrepids that year.

Some sensor broke and the car would just stop whenever it wanted. $300 dollars to fix that.

The rims on it were messed up.

The molding is falling off around the doors.

General Comments:

I owned a Pontiac Firebird for 3 years and I put a grand total of $200 into it in about 50,000 miles. I owned this car for 2 months and 5,000 miles and I put in about 3 grand into it. BUY GM or FORD please.

Being a college student I don't have a lot of money to throw around and I've been in debt for quite awhile now due to this vehicle. If you're gonna buy one of these expect to put at least 1,500 in the first year. I dread the moment that I bought a Chrysler still to this day. Just goes to show you, just because it looks like a good deal doesn't mean it will be.

Comfortable nice looking car, but just poorly built, and on top of that Chrysler doesn't even care that it's poorly built and they wouldn't help me if I begged them and I have.

I have had very poor experience with the Chrysler dealership and I would like to know if anyone has had a good experience with them???

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I too have a 1994 Intrepid and will never buy another Chrysler product as long as I live.

I've replaced the rotors (front and back) 3-4 times since I've owned the car (just about every 25,000 miles).

The molding around the windows is coming off.

Paint on the exterior is starting to chip.

I had to replace the AC compressor and the radiator already.

I had a sensor problem which caused my car to stall while I was driving it and almost caused a few accidents.

The driver-side windshield wiper arm does not make contact with the windshield so it is useless.

Recently the "check engine" light has been coming on and my gas gauge is suddenly bobbing up and down which causes the fuel light to come on and off. I need to have all these things looked at, but with the luck I've had with this car I'm sure it will be costly to fix.

I've written to Chrysler several times and have spoken to the customer care center and they failed to take any responsibility for the poor design. They blame my driving and "wear and tear" as they call it so I've had it with the piece of crap and Chrysler can consider themselves minus one customer!

A piece of crap on wheels


Timing belt broke at 78,000km.

Fuel leak in the engine compartment!

Transmission shifts erratically.

A/C compressor seized twice (2 new A/C's needed).

Transmission leak twice.

Rack and pinion steering failed.

Front axle seized.

Chrysler badging fell off.

Hood shocks failed (both).

Windshield wiper arms failed.

Headlights poorly aligned from factory.

Exterior light bulbs blown (6 new bulbs needed).

Automatic temperature controls failed (which went to the default setting of full heat, and full fan on a 30°C day).

Primary catalytic converter failed twice.

Door moulding fell off.

Door seals are coming off.

General Comments:

This car is crap! If it were not for the extended warranty I would have had to pay over $7000 for repairs for driving the car 36,000km.

This car's been in the shop more than 15 times, 10 of which we needed a rental car. The rental company even gave us a discount for being their most valuble customer.

You may save money when you buy the car but in the long run a Japanese competitor will save you a lot of hassle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Well, you seem to be one of the few, perhaps you should read the manual when you get a car and make sure that you keep up the maintanence, because I have never seen such problems with Intrepids. Even Blue Book gives them good ratings.

Add cracked (due to to poor stamping design) seat bases and broken inner tie rod bolts (unsupported except by the outer lock tab) to the defect list. After working on these cars I'm glad I don't own one.
