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

Jan 102009

Intrepid 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,500 miles


I was given this car from my Dad in an inheritance three months ago, so am I glad I did not have to pay for it. It is by far, the worst car I have ever owned. It blew a head gasket at 30,000 miles. I got it at 50,000 miles, in December, 2008, and within a week of owning it, it stalled making a left in the middle of a busy intersection. Mechanic said it needed a crankshaft position sensor. I later found out that same sensor had been replaced a few months earlier. One month later, while driving home from work in the cold Chicago winter, the car started running hot and smoking like hell. I was glad to get it to a gas station in time to get some sealant in the radiator. That was two months ago. Today is the first time I have driven it since then. Radiator fluid is topped off, but now the car makes strange knocking noises going forward, and a different strange noise when going in reverse. I will sell it honest, and will junk it before I take a chance on pouring repair money into this unreliable money pit.
