2000 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L from North America
Daimler Chrysler rip off artists
Same old song... sludge in the engine, maintenance done, and Daimler Chrysler won't live up their warranty!
This car had no problems until the last oil change. I went to a local oil change place, and the tech brought me the oil cap showing a ton of sludge. This seemed odd, since I have normal oil changes and never saw that before. About two weeks later, the car started pinging and stalled on the highway. Since then the dealer has put in for a warranty claim, but Dodge has refused it stating poor maintenance! I have been doing regular maintenance at 3,000 mile intervals, even though the owners manual states they should be done at 7,500 intervals. The car is now a piece of crap that needs over $6,000 in repairs, and none of it my fault. Dodge won't honor their contract, and I am still in this car for $10,000 and three years.
Don't BUY A DODGE!!!
DODGE and DAIMLER CHRYSLER is notorious for not covering their manufacturer's defects. I have over 1,000 pages of research showing that they do not cover their warranty, and will do everything possible to void their contract with you!

I am in no way affiliated with that web site, but if we can get enough customers to put pressure on them, maybe they will pay up!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I too had a Dodge Intrepid that accumulated oil sludge in the engine. Dodge claimed it was because I missed 2 oil changes! They do not make a very good engine if this is the case, and no one should buy or lease this car unless you do not mind putting $9,000.00 to repair it. It seems I have not been the only one who has been affected. Dodge does not back up their product and future car buyers should beware.
