Dodge Intrepid Problems
Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.
Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.
The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.
Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.
A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.

Dodge Intrepid Reviews
I have the option of buying a Dodge Intrepid or a Jeep Grand Charokee, both cars are 2003 and they both are used, Im not sure of which one is more reliable...please help me decide.
Got my 98 Intrepid in 2003,it was a one owner with 23,000 miles on it. I now have over 170,000 miles on it and plan on keeping it for awhile. The biggest problem I had with it was the computer went out on it. The garage had it for over a month trying to figure out what was wrong with it, because it never acted up for them. It would have cost me over $2,000 to get it fixed, but I paid for the computer that cost me $748.00 and Dodge picked up the rest of the amount. I keep the oil changed every 3,000 miles and keep the air filter changed. It is a 3.2 engine. I had to replace 8 tube lines and that was over $500.00. I like the way it drives and handles.
I purchased the car for $5K in 2000 - it's a 1999 - ran great until a routine oil change turned out to be a case where I believe the dealer did not put the oil back in as the engine burned-up and there were no oil leaks just no oil in it and I was always prompt in changing the oil at the dealership. This dealership did Fords and others as well. I knew I couldn't prove it in court - and this was in 2007 so I bought a new engine from Michigan for $1,995 pd $1,000 to have it put in and although I still have the car and love the car - this engine over heats and I use it as a 2nd car now can only go 20 miles or so & it over heats but it's very comfortable and it didn't have any other major problems - after I had the engine replaced -hard to give her up as it is such a nice car other than having the engine replaced. I took the car back for a new Dodge emblem on the front and left it for the afternoon while I was at work and then the next oil change I took it to an oil change place and they told me that they could not replace the belt or even check it because the entire air conditioning unit had been removed! Well, the only place it had been was to the dealership - so I never went back to that dealership and now I am driving around in California with my Dodge Intrepid and maybe some day I'll just fix her up again. She is a great 2nd car. My advice is that you beware of dealerships especially when your car gets to be 5+ years of age - I think they will do whatever is necessary to try and sell you another car. Hope this helps. In 1999 I also bought my daughter a 1997 Dodge Intrepid and she is still driving it today and it's 10/09/2011 and she loves her car. Only minor repairs on that car but she never took her car to the dealership - she did oil changes on time with oil change places and then checked the oil to make sure she had received oil - after my ordeal.
2 things. i drove about 4 miles and when i stopped the coolant in the resevior was boiling. i did not observe any leaks. anywhere. i reseated the cap and drove home and it did not boil when i stopped.
i then noticed water leaking from a rubber hose that was attached to a grommet? to teh floorboard on the passenger side. i felt the carpet and it wasnt wet. the heat worked fine as does the airconditioning. this is the first time ive observed this and also what is that hose and grommet for anyway??
thanks for your help
