1995 Dodge Intrepid Standard 3.3 from North America
Unreliable, Unsafe, Expensive to Maintain
Dip stick broke.
Passenger-side power window stopped working.
Alternator literally fell off at 90,000 miles.
Transmission began malfunctioning at 105,000.
Engine would suddenly die while driving and would not start for up to several hours (replaced part, cannot remember what it was)...problem started at about 80,000 miles.
Had to replace full set of brakes at around 95,000 miles, and CV joint started going bad right afterward.
Trunk and engine hoods would not stay up without manual support.
Ashtray would fall out if opened more than a 1/2 inch (problem detected upon purchase at 75,000 miles)
In three years of ownership, the car became unreliable or unsafe to drive because of four major problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My oil dipstick snapped off inside the tube too, because the top 4 inches of it is PLASTIC, not metal. Couldn't take the heat. Easiest thing to redesign, yet they let it go for the full length of LH body production. Now Chrysler has revived the 3.5L V6 for 2004 vehicles. Open the hood of the new Chrysler Pacifica and look for this plastic dipstick. Is it still there?
