I just turned 18 and graduated high school got a job bought a so called good used Intrepid. It looked as though it was well maintained I paid over $3,300 for the car and taxes. I drove it for less than ten days and less than 200 miles. Now it will not shift out of first gear. I took it to the Dodge dealer where they said the transmission kickedout 4 differant internal codes. They said it had to be replaced. Then I found out about other people that has had problems with their Intrepid transmissions.if Dodge would have posted a letter of the problems they have had with the Intrepid transmissions I would have never bought a Dodge Intrepid! I like the car but the bank that I received the loan through said the car is not worth $5,700. That is how much that 1996 Dodge Intrepid will end up costing me. Not counting the loss of transportation to get to and from work.

I bought this car less than two weeks ago, I have not even put two thousand miles on the car and the transmission has quit working in third and fourth gear. The motor has begun to use oil and is knocking. While driving, the car loses power and even dies. It also, while idling, begins to revs the engine to an unsafe level and you must shut the car off. I contacted the dealer I bought the car from, greene county auto auction & sales - 6319 hwy. 49 South paragould, ar 72450. The salesman I bought the car from didn't want to take the car back and was extremaly rude when I suggested that he try to work with me on getting the car fixed or trading it in. As I said I have had the car but a short time and all these problems are occuring. He assured me that the car was in good condition and that he had, had it serviced and checked out and there was nothing wrong with it.

This car was brought over from Canada and then sold to us by auto nation. When we went to register the car with the sales contract which states the make of the car as a Dodge we had some problems because it is a crysler. Now we have a problem where the odometer is only tracking.6 for every mile traveled. We are not sure how long this has been a problem. This is not something that you would normaly think to check. How ever, this would indicate a problem of how many actual miles are on this car. We are speaking with auto nation and they seem to think that this is not there problem. I feel that this is fraud on there part. When this car was brought from Canada some one did not adjust the odometer correctly. I would like to see some action on this. Thank you for your time.
