: the contact stated while the vehicle was still under warranty stalling occurred causing problems to the brakes and the steering. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer who determined the tire rod ends were shot and vehicle was not drivable. Repairs were made to the censor of the vehicle to repair the problems on the steering and the brakes. The vehicle soon also had problems with overheating causing the engine to smoke and an oil burning smell to occur. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they determined the cause for overheating was due to sludge in the motor and that the cost for repairs were not covered under warranty.

Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
I purchased this car used, with 24,000 miles on it, 18 months ago. 6 times to shop: 1) about 3 months after purchase, had to have tie rod replaced 2) brakes needed after approx 14 months from purchase 3) engine needed to be replaced 14 months after purchase 4) water pump housing cracked and had to be replaced, at my expense, after dealership crimped water pump housing when putting in replacement power train 5) sway bar bushings needed replacement at 16 months 6) was just driving home from work and 4 miles from home engine began making weird noises and by the time I got home was making very loud engine noises, sounds like transmission? didn't want to accelerate. Turned car off when I got home and didn't want to start an hour later, just cranked and cranked. I believe this is a lemon, but since I bought it used, don't think I'm covered under lemon law. Will attempt to force dealership to replace car with a different model tomorrow. Oh, and also the inner driver's door handle doesn't open the car door. It broke about 3 months ago, and I haven't fixed it because they want to charge $50 for the part and who knows how much for the labor.
