problem #13

Intrepid

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
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.

Noticed the smell of gas in and around the car. Made appointment for normal maintenance check and found out fuel rail was leaking gas. Luckily I had a warrenty contract for which the part for replacement of fuel rail was covered. I do have a $100 co-pay for which I would like to have refunded. Was told by Chrysler Corp. That this was not possible, without the correction to fuel rail my car could have been engulfed in flames while driving. Chrysler could at least refund my co-pay. I don't think I should pay for their bad parts. I was also told by Chrysler that they were not going to recall the 1996 Dodge Intrepid. It has the same fuel rail problem as the 1993 which was recalled this year.
