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.

2004 Dodge Intrepid Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012010

Intrepid LS 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles


This car, from day one has been nothing but trouble. I should have walked away the day the master cylinder failed right on the car lot after I had just driven it 100 miles. My kids and I could have been killed. Then as if that wasn't bad the dealer kept giving me the runaround. I noticed an oil leak at the same time. The dealer was supposedly fixing the problem. Well, what do you know what happens next.... I have an emergency involving my child and while driving down the road the transmission goes out. Luckily I had 1 week left on my warranty. that was a hefty 900.00 that I did not have to pay. Few months later, starter goes out...then the oil starts leaking. It got to the point where I was putting 2 to 3 bottles in every time I moved my car.( and I work 5-7 days a week) I ended up getting that fixed it was a small part that cost 12.00. It basically regulated the oil flow. The A/C has one setting High(dealer never fixed it). I have a bad oil light sensor which will cost me 150.00. AND now while driving this blasted vehicle it starts jerking and sputtering, engine light comes on. Took it to Auto Zone they gave me several codes. I ended up taking it to a mechanic and now they are telling me we can't tell which code. There are 4 codes showing. The car has no value. I owe more than what it's worth. I am in another jam. I had not purchased a car in 10 years and look at what this has got me ....more stress and grey hair. I gotta a LEMON!!! Oh almost forgot Feb 2010 while driving my baby to daycare noticed we didn't have any heat...well few minutes later smoke starts coming from under the hood. Car breaks down at the daycare. The housing that sits between the reservoir and radiator blew off. MO' MONEY, MO MONEY, MO'MONEY!!! I AM FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
