I went to leave work and my car would not start. At first I thought maybe it was the battery or starter. After having both of these tested and several mechanics later was told that my engine was seized. I have always checked the oil and had it changed accordingly. This is not fair I trusted that this car would be reliable and dependable now I am stuck with no vehicle in a town with little to no public transportation. How could Chrysler/Dodge knowingly let people purchase this engine when there are several thousand complaints on it? how about a recall and some integrity and honesty in your product instead of screwing single mothers like me...

Transmission issues check engine light comes on got solenoid pack put in (all electronics) and still have issue with transmission, needed an alternator however the alternator is located between the frame and the engine, very expensive, needed a battery but the battery is located on the passenger side and the tire has to be removed in order to change it. The company is aware of the ongoing issues with the transmission, alternator etc, how do you file a complaint with the company also, dome lights come on by themselves while car is running.

In August 2004 we bought a 2004 Dodge Intrepid with 17,000 miles from a Dodge dealer. In September 2005 the vehicle started experiencing hesitation and stuttering at start up when the temperature fell below 40 degrees. Took it to the dealership and the mechanic said it was the crank sensor, which was replaced under warranty. Problem didn't go away. In November 2005 took the car back to the dealership. At that time the cam sensor was replaced under warranty. Some improvement was noticed. In October 2007 the dash lights started to flicker. This happened whether the car was driving or at a standstill. Back to the dealership. They said it was probably the battery. We agreed to pay for a new battery and left the car there while the battery was being replaced. The dealership test drove the car and the lights still flickered. They then determined that a ground wire was loose, probably causing the flicker. This car is 4 years old and currently has 30,000 miles. We don't drive it many miles per year and don't feel it is really reliable. No wonder Dodge stopped production on the Intrepid!!

When driving any where any speed car will start hesitating then cut off. Sometimes if you let it sit for 15 mins it will turn back sometimes it will take longer. Very dangerous car and it's a shame to pay $487 a month for a car that may very well cost you your life. In 2005 had to put it in the shop because it would not start back up. Our mechanic said it was the crank angle sensor but now in 2006 it doing it again.

On 11/18/04 my vehicle stalled after crossing 3 lanes of traffic on a heavily traveled street. I managed to get the vehicle to a side street before I was completely unable to maneuver it, where I was able to start it again. The vehicle was towed to a dealership and the cam sensor was replaced the next day. Ihave had no problems until approximately 01/28/05, when the vehicle starting having a hesitation when I accelerated. Today (2/1/05) I got in my car to run an errand and the check engine light was on, which immediately alarmed me. I took the vehicle to a parts store and had them do a check, the results were: The cam sensor. This makes 2 times in 10 weeks that I have had to take my vehicle in to be serviced. I am currently drivinga borrowed vehicle until mine is "fixed".

While driving, the vehicle stalled. The computer was replaced and the air bag was fixed. After the vehicle was picked up, the vehicle stopped again in traffic and caused many near misses. Then the electrical harness was replaced.
