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.

Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While driving and upon turning the vehicle off it was fine. When trying to start the vehicle again it will not start. When driving and trying to accelerate vehicle will not accelerate. Also, it is using lots of fuel. Contacted the dealer, and was told the vehicle was not repairable. Consumer have 3 isolated problems, made several attempts to fix these problems. First problem once vehicle warm up completely it is difficuit to restart. Recent problem has been an unrepairable exhaust problem. Have had 3 different repair shops tell consumer they can't fix it. Final issue is radiator flush that can't service. The repair shops can't get the damp off. These are all original parts.

I believe my 1998 Dodge Intrepid ES was a lemon when I brought it, I've had nothing but problems with it, overheating, stalling, stopping.
