1999 Dodge Intrepid stnd 2.7 from North America
Daimler Benz is the real sucker here!!!
My engine failed- the dealer told me $10,000!!! I told them to get a grip-nice of them to offer to cover half- I went for it, MAJOR mistake.
The speed sensors failed in the transmission at 50,000 miles- $600.
The two fan motors failed at 52,000- $600.
Now the transmission went out at 55,000-they want $2000!!!.
I'm so far underwater, I've got the bends.
I initially received this car new through my company- they leased it for me. The performance during the first 3.5 years seemed fine- the standard service and consumable parts replacement. I decided to purchase this car for my 19 year old twin boys- they were going to school and I thought the price was right.
Before I purchased it in 2002 (40000miles) I had it totally serviced to the tune of $2000.
Then the fun began- I have experienced all of the same issues as people have been complaining about related to the Intrepid- as above.
This is the WORST vehicle I have EVER owned- I currently drive a Chevy Suburban, a Mercury Sable (Company lease), a Pontiac Gran Am and a Ford Bronco II. All together the repair costs have been less than this pile of guano.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

We were told the same thing. We said NO. We went and traded it off for a New Nissan. We had the same problem.
