2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


On the surface, it looks like a great
car and until recently, I loved mine.
However, the engine has a defect and
the timing chain will slip at anywhere
between 60,000 and 80,000 miles and
destroy the engine. The cost to
replace is generally 5,000 and
Chrysler refuses to do anything about
it. It is a safety issue--the engine
will seize while you're driving and
you lose all steering and breaking.
This is affecting hundreds if not
thousands of owners at this time. If
you want to confirm, do a search for
timing chain and dodge,I now have a
car that is worth nothing (it's not
worth it to replace the engine) and I
still owe $6,000 on it!

Best Features

Until the engine went, I really liked the car. Nice smooth drive and lots of interior room. However, all that is not worth the engine trouble!

Worst Features

Chrysler needs to accept responsibility for their engine defect and dangerous driving situation (I think that loosing breaking and steering suddenly while driving constitutes a serious safety issue!) and either pay for the replacement engine, or recall it all together!
