Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While driving and upon turning the vehicle off it was fine. When trying to start the vehicle again it will not start. When driving and trying to accelerate vehicle will not accelerate. Also, it is using lots of fuel. Contacted the dealer, and was told the vehicle was not repairable. Consumer have 3 isolated problems, made several attempts to fix these problems. First problem once vehicle warm up completely it is difficuit to restart. Recent problem has been an unrepairable exhaust problem. Have had 3 different repair shops tell consumer they can't fix it. Final issue is radiator flush that can't service. The repair shops can't get the damp off. These are all original parts.

I believe my 1998 Dodge Intrepid ES was a lemon when I brought it, I've had nothing but problems with it, overheating, stalling, stopping.
