This is the worst car I have ever owned; blew motor at 28000 and the new motor is just as bad. I am in a law suit with chrylser now; have any of you looked around your back doors? There is some very bad work on those! I'm told that that is how Chrylser builds them. I could go on and on! Check your car out good before you buy; I'll never again buy a chrysler, ever!

Tommysproaudio@cox.net feel free to email me for more on this; I'll tell you every thing I know about chrysler, and that's a lot! Thank you and have a great day. Tommy.

I recently acquired a 2004 Dodge Intrepid.. exactly 7 months ago with 79890 miles on it. Of course, I didn't buy the extended warranty.. my fault..and now the transmission is gone with approximately 84000 miles on it.

Since I brought this car, the check engine light continues to come on and go off. The body and Interior looks great, very roomy inside including trunk. But wow, the transmission going so soon. Please help if you have any suggestions for me on what to do. Email me at lilchocnsc@yahoo.com.

I bought a 2004 Intrepid this past June. I had previously test driven this Model (1999 & 2000) and found it to handle well, have good power, great space and great looks. I had heard there were some transmission problems, but had been ironed out. I bought this car with 60k miles on it and have until last night been very satisfied. I just rolled over 74k miles and at 73k had an intermittent oil light. Had computer monitor check and dealership said it was probably dirt on the sending unit. It went away and the car never acted poorly. I got gas last night and had a hard time starting the car. I now have an engine light on and the car acts like it wants to quit running. Oil still looks very good, at 2k miles since last change. I've changed it every 3k miles or less. Hope I can get this solved.

Once the oil and heat problems begin with the 2.7 engine, that's your first warning sign.

I'll give you the advice my mechanic gave me when my 2.7 Chrysler product started having these problems -- FIX IT AND GET RID OF IT! It only gets worse from here and a new engine will cost you at least $4K to $7K installed.
