Intrepid 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a 2000 Dodge Intrepid, purchased at 54,000 miles. I have already replaced the transmission and the front wheel bearings roar very bad, A/C went out needs evaporator, and the car rarely starts unless you rock the whole car, I am very displeased and no one will trade it in, when the transmission went out the car pulled to the left and I ran off the road.
