i kept smelling this stench odor in my car, it appeared to be coming from the air conditioner. i though maybe either a cat or baby squirral got up in the engine & died. could not find anything, so we took it to the dealer, since we could only smell it when we turned on the fan. the dealer in tampa knew right away what the problem was, said mold was growing in the air vents, and flushed a chemical in there to kill the mold. that only temporarily solved the problem, so i took it to a different dealer, closer to my home. told them to fix the problem, not just mask it with chemicals. they claimed the car was coming from something other than the air conditioner & air vents, and refused to fix it. i called the chrysler ho, and they sided with the dealership.

vehicle has had numerous problems. brake problems, w/a vibrating/shaking of front of vehicle upon braking. was fixed by dealer twice. front heated seats have stopped working: twice on driver side. dealer fixed. now on passenger side, dealer will not fix under extended warranty. cost is expensive to fix. engine noise problems - loud whining, with rough idling. happened w/in first couple of month of ownership, dealer thought it was the fan. replaced fan parts. started w/noise and rough-idyling again w/in a couple of months, dealer couldn't figure it out. went in for third time, dealer said it was the steering fluid resevoir. dealer made a "modification" to the fluid resevoir. noise w/rough idylling came back again a few months ago, dealer said it was a hose. replaced hose. problem is now coming back again, dealer is not sure what it is, currently problem is intermitten, dealer can't find noise upon checking, noise is most apparent upon periods @ higher rates of speed, dealer will not drive at higher rate of speed to test. passenger slider door has problem shifting from automatic mode to manual mode: stays in automatic mode when person tries to manually open. dealer will not fix under extended warranty. cost to fix is expensive. air-conditioner compressor in for third repair. air-conditioner had pressure problems, no cold air coming out, only hot air. went to dealer twice to be repaired. dealer told us this is a common problem in warmer-climate areas, and prepare to get used to cold air not always being cold, depending on the heat outside. this was not an acceptable response to me. dealer finally fixed problem. now compressor has gone out. dealer is currently checking problem. all repairs have been done by norm reeves chrysler dodge in temecula, ca until the a/c compressor problem. this is being done at a different dealer, because i have not been happy with norm reeves' service.

i have a suggestion, i hope this is the proper department to present it. stop lights should be mandatory on the front of cars and trucks as well as the present locations in the rear. the benefit is a driver can tell if the car approaching a stop sign or light is really intending to stop. the same is true of a driver with turn signals on but has no intention to slow and turn. that would be apparent if there was a stop light in the front and may save a person from pulling in front of the car they believed was going to turn. on the rear of a car there should be in addition to the current lights, a yellow caution light that comes on when the car is coasting (neither gas nor brakes applied). this would provide additional warning to the following driver that changes are taking place up ahead.

front end suspension, wheel bearing & steering - grinding noise when going over small holes or hills such as speed bumps & pot holes. almost never when driving directly forward, but often when turning. dealer made 4 (four) repair attempts and still has not gotten it right. not 2 months after last repair, which took six weeks to get all the parts together (during which the lemon law coverage for my car expired - go wonder about that..) the noises have returned again. other issues, i have seen 6 total issues mentioned in this site that i can identify with. as for those sudden accelerations some have mentioned, yes i agree the pedals are too close which makes it easy to mash both brake & gas pedals. *jb

when i purchased the car brand new, the sunvisor on top was loose, the dealership said it was fine, then a couple of days later i noticed it was coming off more. they did fix this then i reported that the keyless entry remote did not work . i went there on three occasions for approximately 5 hours total to have this fixed, they did fix and now it does not work again. i am also hearing a water swishing sound when i start the car and when driving mostly in center of car, but can be heard in all area including when i step on and off the brake. i went to the dealership and saw three sales people and they could not help me and told me to come back on monday. they were very rude and would not even offer a suggestion about the problem i was having. this is a brand new car and costing more than 23,000 dollars, should i have all these problems already. *jb ***dimsii ivoq entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****741071

. hello. my wife and i own a 1998 chrysler intrepid. i say chrysler instead of dodge because it is canadian built and they are called chryslers. we had 73,000 miles on it when it suddenly failed on us. my wife was on the freeway heading to work. the oil light came on and she pulled over immediately. well, the engine stopped before she could even come to a complete stop. we had it towed to a chrysler dealership. they told us the engine had no oil and it seized up. well, i know the engine had oil. we just had it changed 2 weeks prior. the car never burned oil. nor was there ever any leaking evident underneath it. i have receipts to prove many of the oil changes. we had them done every 3 thousand miles. so i called the corporation. i was treated very rudely. the only thing they had to offer was "engine failure due to lack of maintenance." i was very angry, but i felt i had no other recourse but to just take it and buy a new motor. it cost us well over $2500.00. now we can't sell the car because we can't break even on it. it is now worth more to us than to anyone else. my name is ronald w. ault. 4930 beech rd. hope, mi 48628. my home number is 989 435-9941. i will help in any way i can because my thoughts on this are: chrysler will do everything they can to fight a recall on this because it will cost them multi-millions of dollars to settle all the cases. please contact me if you need any assistance. ron . *jb

i had bought a 2000 chrysler concorde in 2001. the car had been acting funny. the oil light came on during stops, the engine would rev up without my pushing the accelerator, the engine was knocking. i took the car to my regular mechanic & paid for repairs that did not solve the problem. then, soon after i took the car to a chrysler dealership repair service and they replaced the camsensor. it seemed to correct the problems. about 6 weeks later all of the problems returned. i immediately stopped driving the vehicle except when i drove it back to the service center at the dealership the next morning. they replaced the camsensor again. the next day, my engine froze and now needs to be replaced. it was not under warranty. therefore, niether chrysler nor the dealership will take responsibility for my loss.

2001 300m - all door triming separating, leaving a 1 inch gap in all corners. all of my vehicle door triming has shrunk? this is leaving a gap in the corners allowing outside sound to come in, as if your vehicle windows are open or cracked. i keep my vehicle in the garage and i have no children. how does the door trim shrink? i paid $95.00 to have them re-positioned, not replaced. to re-place all door triming is $200.00 each door. the door triming is poor material and is a defect that you installed, why must new 300m owners pay for this. i would like to see a re-call for all door trim to be re-placed at your cost. i guarantee, that i will have to have my vehicle in for service, in the future because i only paid to have them re-positioned. this is your responsiblity of the poor material that you have installed that makes door triming shrink. i am just over my 36,000 miles but i bought the after market extened warranty thinking that it would be covered? my dealership states that it is not covered and they also state that they have had the same problems with other 300m's. this is not fair to new costly vehicle owners who take great care of their car to have all door trim fall apart from shrinkage. please consider a re-call to re-place the poorly installed material for the door triming that shrinks. i find this to be a hazard with triming hanging down from shrinking for those like me that can't afford the high cost for replacing it and a huge regret of a vehicle purchase from chrysler, if you don't. i would like a reimbursement of my recent charges of $95.00 i can provide a receipt, and i would like for you to re-place all door triming. *ak *ph

300m- all door triming separating in the corners to approximately 1 inch gap from shrinkage. the material used for the door triming is a defect material. t is not covered by any warranty. to re-position the door trim is approximately $95.00, to the owner and this could result in returning for repeated service. to re-place the door triming is $200.00 each door, to the owner. this should be chrylser's responsiblility to re-call all 300m's with poorly installed material for door trim that shrinks? you hear wind sound when driving as if the windows are cracked open. this is a luxurious vehicle...why are the door triming falling apart. how do i, as a vehicle owner driver make the door trim shrink? why would i be responsible for this? i have had many cars in my life and i have never seen door trim separate, and shrink. please re-call all 300m's to re-place the door triming, at least one time. maybe, consider using a different material so there won't be repeats of service.*ak
