Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I just brought my glamorous intrepid about 5 months ago....One day the heat just stopped working on all the lower settings except high. This is sucking up all my gas which is extremely high in Cleveland....Why is this happening? What do I do?

Intrepid

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

The heater in this car only blows on high, and the AC does not work at all. I have had the car in and out of shops to fix the AC and all they do is add a dye and when I return for them to look at the dye progress they do not find anything, and have me repeat the process. After about 5 times of repeating the process I gave up. I would have been more pissed off if it wasn't covered under the initial warranty from the dealer, but time is precious and all the time, and gas I wasted back and forth to the shop is non-refundable.

Intrepid Sedan 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles

Fan only work on Max setting. Got this problem 4 hours ago. I haven't test the AC yet. Wonder what will happen. Any suggestion greatly appreciated. Also found out that the display panel dimmer if push all the way up will cause the interior lights come on and off when driving.

Intrepid 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Within 60,000 + miles the fan for heat only works on high and the air doesn't work.... It makes you wonder why this is such a problem. I have had the fan switch replaced and within days it broken again. It's not like heat and air are a new thing in cars... so what is the problem.

Intrepid ES

  • 65,000 miles

I've taken it to the dealer I bought the car from, and they still can't find out why the resistor that's under the glove compartment keep blowing out. They told me that its a common problem with the Dodge Intrepid. I've taken it in 5 times for just this one problem, it's a pain in the ass.
