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.

1998 Dodge Intrepid Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 072004

Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Repairs were done to the engine on 3 occasions, rotors 2 occasions, brakes 1 occasion, control arms (suspension) 1 occasion, steering 1 occasion, & electrical. Although I only have 54,000 miles on my car and the engine has been replaced, the dealership refuses to fix the ongoing engine problems. The dealership manager, rod harris, admits it a lifter ticking but insists that it is normal. Chrysler gave me an "added care service contract" that is good through 6/26/04 and to 75,000 miles. Plan code is ad675H. They refuse to fix my car. This is the second time, after the first three attempts to fix it, I have been to the dealership. I filed a complaint with Chrysler on 1/12/04. Also note they still have my vehicle today 1/12/04 because the transmission failed. It's been in service for 5 days. Transmission failed while I was driving on 1/7/04. I am concerned with the safety of the vehicle and the engine failing now with my 10 month old daughter.
