2000 Dodge Intrepid from North America
Cruise control went at 35,000 km.
Automatic door locks had to have the solenoid and latch assembly replaced at 23,000km.
All weather strips fell off and had to be replaced at 23,000 km.
Clunking noise when braking, thought to be just dirty brakes in to garage at 5,900 km.
Clunking sound when brakes applied, numerous times in the shop and they couldn't detect anything. Found to be faulty front axles and both were replaced at 6,000 km.
Also right control arm bushing replaced.
Very poor heat upon purchase, found to be lacking antifreeze??? Had to refill and purge air from the system.
Trunk lock went at 45,000 km.
To this day there is poor heat and the brakes squeal.
Overall poor service and many return trips to get itmes fixed.
No support or understanding from Chrysler when contacted.
Roomy is all I can say good about the car.
When a new car is purchased you don't expect things to continually go wrong.
For such a large amount of money spent on vehicles now days, the return policy is better if you purchase a toaster!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I just bought a 2000 Dodge Intrepid SE with 80,000 miles on it and love it. It rides great and I enjoy showing it off to my buddies. After reading a few of the surveys I got kind of nervous about the engine. I do not have the funds to spend on a whole bunch of repairs or on a new car. Is there any way I can keep sludge out of my engine and make this car last as long as my note?
