I'm buying a Toyota/ Honda next, I can't afford another "Made in USA"
Window motors for passenger side doors replaced at 55,000 miles.
Door lock actuators soon after.
Fuel pump,replaced at 70,000 after complaints of stalling.
Radiator fans (both) failed at 72,000 miles.
About the same time tie-rod bushings failed, I'm getting to know my Chrysler shop tech on a first name basis.
Total engine failure at 76,350 miles. Luckily covered by extended warranty.
Waiting for the transmission to go next.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Did you ever look into the problems yourself or just automatically run back to the dealer. Sometimes dealers tell you more than what it is to charge you more. I know plently of people with Intrepids and none of them had the problems you had.

I feel for you. I have a 99 Intrepid ES and I have 115,000 miles on it. In the last 2 months I have had everything you had happened to mine and more. I had the Evaporator and Heating Element Leak and go and that cost me $1300. Then after they supposedly fix my car they told me after they said the car is fixed, by the way your two fans are shot by the radiator, one does not work and one runs at slow speed. Plus my starter went, where I could not start the car right away. After I got all that fixed for a total of $2,300, the dealership did something wrong to my dash board when they replaced the Air Conditioner Evaporator. The speaker by the windshield vibrated terribly since last week and just tonight after filling my tank the gas gage would go from full to empty and then full again. And to boot, the empty gas can light comes on with that dinging noise. My wife and I are scared for this car we have 18 more payment for.
