problem #11

Apr 102003

Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles
In June of 2002 my A/C compressor "froze" leaving me without my air conditioner during June, July, and part of August. I had the compressor and other components fixed at the end of August at the cost of $504. I got to use my A/C for a whole 3 weeks until the weather cooled off! now (May 2003), my A/C doesn't work again! apparently there is a leaky H-valve and other components that need to be replaced at the cost of $680. I refuse to shell out any more money for this piece of crap car as this is my 3rd complaint to NHTSA.
