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.

2003 Dodge Intrepid Owner Comments

problem #1

May 022008

Intrepid SE 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Tried to install car seat in the back of my Intrepid. Because the Gen 3 buckles' button protrudes from rest of the buckle, it will unlatch at the slightest bump. Even following the directions with the car seat manufacturer, the buckles would unlatch. I can't begin to imagine what would happen in a crash. My boys are now 8 years and 2 yrs.Took Gen 2 buckles out of Dynasty to replace the rear ones with. Can't find a similar fix for the ones in the front seat as the buckles to Dynasty attach to floor. Intrepid ones attach to seat. As a result I have to drive with the armrest down to help keep from bumping the buckles. I am going to trash this car for this and many more reasons because it is very unsafe. Chrysler will not recall the buckles even though they failed a standard test. By the way, if anyone tries this "fix" remember that I have no control over the way you do it. There are risks associated with any mods to the seat belt system. The Gen 2 buckles work only because the inner working are the same as the Gen 3. I bear no responsibility for your actions, this is for informative purposes only . Better to get rid of the car affected.
