1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L from North America
Great looking car with numerous problems
At 35,000 miles the transmission went and we had it replaced.
At 50,000 the passenger side window motor broke and also the lock mechanism.
At 80,000 the timing chain came off, damaging the engine.
The car ran good up until the timing chain went. It is a very good looking and roomy car with lots of trunk space and a large back seat. We are very disappointed with the cost of repairs for the car's engine which would be more than the car is worth if we were to sell it. If anyone has any information regarding the class action lawsuit, we would be very interested. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I would like to know about the class action lawsuit regarding the engines in the Intrepids. Mine has 116000 miles on it and has been METICULOUSLY maintained with an every 3000 miles Mobil 1 oil change, adult driven and never abused and yet the engine is now knocking and the Dealer said it is a well known (to Dodge) problem with the 2.7 liter engine and Dodge knew it was a bad design and sold it anyway. This will cost over 6000 dollars to fix. The corporate answer to me is "well it's out to warranty, too bad" or "well it's high mileage" I can't beleive anyone buys this crap from them. How many cars are there out there with 100000 or more miles on them that run just fine??? Millions? I think Dodge should be held responsible for replacing these engines. We are not all made of money and can't just run out and buy a new car every 2 years. This is ridiculous.
