As I sat in my car to drive, the driver's seat leaned back unexpectedly. It can not be raised. I have a bucket and box behind the seat to hold it in place, but it is still not in an upright position. This is a safety issue.

I was grocery shopping and when I got in the car to go home there was a clunk noise and I was reclining in the drivers seat. I could not upright the seat so it would stay in place. I put the seat belt on and held down the console and made it home scared but safe.I looked under the seat and found a bolt broken off. I did receive a recall notice for the bolts some time ago and took the car to the local Dodge dealer. I assumed the problem was fixed although I had not had a problem until today. Can I go back to Dodge to have it fixed? obviously it wad either not replaced or I got a faulty bolt. Please help.

My 2000 Dodge Intrepid has a defective drivers seat. Fortunately, in 2003 I stopped my car to let a passenger exit and my driver's seat fell completely backwards. In 2006 I learned that my car dealer fixed the seat again. In 2010, I was stopped at my mailbox and my seat fell completely backwards again. The dealer & Dodge company refused to pay for a seat replacement. Why not?

: the contact stated that upon entering the highway at the stop sign, the driver seat fell backward without any warning. The dealer was contacted and determined that the bolt parts needed to be ordered to fix and replace the bolt. The manufacturer was contacted and determined that the vehicle needed to be taken to the dealer for a diagnostic test and suggested that an extended warranty should be purchased.

My engine failed on my 2000 Dodge Intrepid. The problem started with my timing chain coming apart in the engine with the engine since quitting completely. This is the same type of problem many others have listed on the internet with the timing chain and a huge engine repair cost. I do not have the money to fix a car that is so old, and I'm left paying for a car that doesn't run. Please add my name and information to the other lists of complaints for this Dodge Intrepid problem.
