Angry Sooooo glad its gone

My 2002 intrepid se is back where I bought it, where they can keep the pos. I am sorry for any of you who have the misfortune of owning one of these things. Problem after problem. Find out its good to change the timing chain and water pump, and then find out its gonna cost 2k to do that. Finally, took it to the shop, and the whole front end is messed up. Nice $440 bill. Never again will I own a Chrysler product. I will stick with a ford, chevy, or something foreign. Sorry about this, just had to get that out...$1500 down the drain. But, thank god the damned thing is gone. I should have broken everything I could on it.
A little more history on it. I got it in March 09. Had 120k miles on it. Needed gas cap, so I bought one. Fixed for a few days, then engine light came back on. This was an intermittent problem, till finally it showed a code about the evap system. IDK, it went away. Windshield leaks, window came off track, cigarette lighter didn't work.
They took it back today, and at least I got a $18 something gift card back from autozone on the gas cap....something good came out of it...wait...I may be buying a FORD. That is the best to come out of it.

Bitter is not the word for it...I don't know a word to describe it. But, I do hear the older intrepids are ok, so who knows. I just am not the biggest fan now.

Did you have a 2.7? I've heard those can be quite exciting to own (although minefields usually are). I'm sure bad luck might have had something to do with it, too.

Anyways, I hope you have better luck in your future automotive endeavors. Stay cool, bro!

I guess I should have known better than to bought off a buy here pay here lot, anyways. A place with Honest in their name, that should have rang a bell not to go there. The sludge, and timing chain/water pump problems worried the heck out of me, though. I have heard they will just stop, with no warning, that they are done for.

Yeah, that might not have been the best idea. My brother had a similar story with a truck he bought from one of those places.

A Ford, ironically.

It was a 2.7. My mistake. My big mistake.

Oh well, looking at a ford escort now, should have better luck with it. I hear they are coming out with a new Intrepid wonder if they will be any better?

I'm assuming you're shopping at a different place this time around?

I don't know much about Escorts, but for what it's worth, you don't see too many of them anymore. That might mean something, it might not.

New Intrepid, eh? I must look into this...

I've found several sites tucked deep within the intertubes discussing the 2010 Dodge Intrepid, but all the pictures and stats are from a 2g! My spider sense is telling me that this is probably bullshit.

My common sense is telling me the same thing. The Intrepid name has been tarnished after the 2.7 fuckup. Talk to most people and they are told to run from them. Just look at re-sell on these cars now. Also, Chrysler has the 300 and Charger as nameplates for there full sized sedan so there would be a conflict right there. Let's face it, I highly doubt we will ever see the intrepid name on another car for many years to come.
