1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 from North America
The worst car ever made
This is the worst car ever made.
24 miles: Speedometer malfunction.
34,000 miles: Broke down on interstate (under warranty)
66,000 miles: Broke down again on the interstate, but this time everything shutdown (everything)
(not under warranty, how conveniet)
It turns out that there was slug in the engine and it ruined it.
Need: 2.7L engine
This problem will never happen again, do you know why? Because I will never buy a Chrysler product agian.
If you have one get rid of it As Soon As Possible, before it's too late.
Note: Had it for a year it broke down now it sits in our yard rotting. On top of it all we are making payments on it still.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My '99 Intrepid ES: Bought brand new Oct. '99.
10k miles- Headlight burned out, Front passenger window failed. Back to dealer.
15k miles- Left rear window failed, Engine dies, won't start. Back to the dealer on a flatbed.
20k miles- Drivers window fails, Trans. stuck in 1st gear. Back on a towtruck again.
21k miles- "Trac lock" and "ABS" lights lit. Back to dealer. Not fixed.
21k miles to present- Trac & ABS lights come on, brake pedal surges and rises. Has happened 40+ times since 21k
(all recorded and documented) and been back to three different dealers 8 times w/o results. All have said they fixed it (every time), or could not witness the problem. One mechanic drove it for a week!
Been back to the dealer for 3 major recalls.
Radio cuts out when it's cold in the car.
Headlight relay clicks, lights flash.
Trunk lid lift arms have failed.
Serpentine belt went (shredded) at 35k miles.
Car has eaten 3 sets of tires.
And...at 39k miles the tranny went. Exactly 2 weeks AFTER the extended 5yr/100k warranty expired! $3200.00.
Now have a rattle under the dash that's impossible to get to.
By the way, the odo turned 38k miles today...
