1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L from North America


Dodge seems to have improved quality in last 20 years, but they have a long, long way to go


Diagnostic Computer Replaced about 50,000 miles.

Driver Side front and back window motor broken. Replaced front motor only

Transmission and Radiator fluid changes because of faulty plugs, washers, and/or seals.

Small, annoying electrical problems. Lights flickering, moisture in headlights, window motors.

General Comments:

And I thought I was having problems. I didn't read anyone else having to replace the main computer. Did you know that in Dodge/Chrysler's infinite wisdom they decided to move the computer from the climate controlled inside to the outside under the hood with the engine? Computers aren't sensitive to environmental and temperature changes are they? They're idiots. That alone was $600. I've had two window motors break on me. Dealership said that's to be expected on the driver's side because of the high amount of usage. I bought that explanation and replaced motor myself. A month later the back passenger window motor broke. Usage explanation doesn't apply here because I doubt it was used more than 10 - 20 times.

I've had a lot of the other minor nuisances that a lot of you have had. Flickering lights, windshield wipers acting funny, etc. The sludge comments are scaring me now because I just had the check-engine light come on a couple days ago. I'm taking to a mechanic Monday, but the check-engine light is off now... I don't know what that means. Everything's OK now?

I'm not buying another Dodge.

If anyones check engine light comes on, and you or the dealership is not sure why, most likely it's the leak detection pump. Save time and money and get this fixed soon. Good luck dodge owners!

It's a nice car, but it is way too expensive to keep it maintained


Within the first month of owning it the driver side window stopped rolling down, which I still haven't gotten fixed. The front passenger side window has come of its guide. Three months after owning it the transmission sensors went, which cost me a couple hundred dollars to replace. At 120,000 miles the starter needed to be replaced. I also just had the wheel bearings, tie rods, and sway bars, water pump, and fans. One month after I got the car the anti-lock breaks and the traction control stopped working. I didn't notice until recently, but the fog lights don't work on it and I don't know if they ever did. The interior overhead lights have also never worked. Over all I have spent about $1300 to fix what is wrong with it. $1000 of that I spent in the last month.

The worst performance ever


My car heater does not blow hot air-then starts working.

My engine has been over heating and causing sludge to build up in the top half of the engine.

My engine fails without warning.

My car burns oil very quickly.

Light traces of white smoke come from the exhaust.

Now my car does not work at all.

I had to change my radiator and cooling fans including the fuse.

The window in the front on the diver's side is not aligned anymore.

General Comments:

This car should have a recall on the whole thing because everything I could think of went wrong with it.

I'm still paying on this car that is just sitting in my driveway because of exhausted funds.

The total engine is blown.

The Dodge Intrepid is one of the most expensive pieces of crap ever sold


We have window problems when the outside temperature drops very low.

The oil light started coming on even though the oil level was not low.

The engine is making a loud noise.

General Comments:

Because of all the complaint's, it's fairly obvious this car should be recalled.

Dodge will never again get one penny from me!

Hey dude when the oil light goes on its means the oil pump is shot and not pumping enough oil to the motor... i had the same problem so they replaced the pump before it was too late.. but I guess yours is shot.

Not true. It is possible that it could be a sensor.
