2000 Dodge Intrepid ES 2.7 from North America
One big lemon!!!
00' Intrepid 2.7L w/58k engine failure.
It jumped time or wasn't getting any oil (the oil light never came on).We are still looking at the motor to determine. I have had no luck finding a new motor. The local dealership told me that they didn't make these motors anymore, that I could get the block, but have to use my old parts ($3600) or by a used motor ($5500) if we could find one. I have contacted Chrysler, and had the pleasure of dealing with one of there customer service representatives who gave me no useful information about the motor.
After reading reviews from other consumers of Chrysler products, I found that engine failure is common in this type of motor at low mileage. I was curious as to what my options might be.
I posted my complaint on this wonderful website, and got a response the next day with very helpful information. Thanks to this website I have registered my name for a class action law suit.
After my experience, and reviews of the Intrepid 2.7L I WOULD NOT recommend this vehicle to anyone. She's a lemon!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

We are in the same boat as you. Is it too late to join the lawsuit?
I am so disgusted with Chrysler and the dealership.
They need to take ownership of the junk they are putting on the roads.

To anyone concerned. We are going through the exact same thing. We only have 49,000 miles on our car and now the engine, of course 4.7L, is probably shot. What can we do?
Can we join the suit too? Please write back and let us know.
