purchased a 2000 dodge intrepid from dadeland dodge in miami, fl. the car is qualified for the lemon law 3 months after purchase, but unaware of such a law and never filed. now it is too late. it is now i decided to take action since the engine blew on 04/12/03. my brother in law was driving and the engine just stopped without warning. i called for a tow truck to be taken to the dealer. the car has about 65,000 miles, and the extended warranty should have covered the repairs; however, the dealer declined. i ended up paying $2,714.87 to get the engine rebuilt. in addition, i also don't have a car for 2 months, and disputed with the dealer and extended warranty company during that span. *la

1998 dodge stratus 2.4l engine automatic 1. the engine is severly leaking oil. two mechanics have looked at it and both said it needs a new head gasket. this car only has 76,000 miles on it. upon research, this is a rampant problem. i have seen hundreds of complaints. they have changed the gasket type to fix this problem. this should be a recall item! 2. trunk latch seems to have a sticking problem. this too seems to be a very common problem. *la

the engine is failing, smoking. upon investigation, it has been found that this is common in 2.7 liter vehciles of this model. in other words, this engine is a lemon. i have also noted that the airconditioning has failed and i will also have to have this repaired. there is also a problem with the ignition that i haven't figure out yet. the power mirror on the driver's side doesn't work and the speaker system has little to be desired. the 3.2 liter engines fair much better after talking with many mechanics, who consequentially are surprised there hasn't been a recall on the 2.7 liter 1998 engines.*ak

while driving 50 mph, the vehicle stalled. *ak the consumer was told that the engine contained sludge build up after having the timing chain tensioner changed. the consumer had the engine flushed two times to improve the sludge problem. after that, the vehicle stalled when the vehicle was in motion at highway speeds. the timing chain had blown and caused engine damage. the timing chain was changed at the dealer who changed the timing tensioner. the consumer found that there were numerous cases of this problem in chrysler vehicles. (the tube that brings the oil up into the engine clogs up, resulting in an under-oiled engine, showing the fault being the owners) the consumer requested that chrysler cover the cost of the engine replacement. also, the brakes pulsated and the trunk lock was broken. *sc *jb

Atlanta, GA

i have had ongoing problems with my 1996 dodge neon sport, it has been inoperable for the last year or so, due to electrical problems and stalling which i believe stem from the wiring harness. i have had the brakes replaced a few times, the a/c replaced, fuel injection acts up and the fuel gauge fluctuates, my transmission has started slipping, power steering and exhaust are leaking, numerous oil leaks, rear lights/ brake lights have not worked in over a year, driverside window broke along the extending arm inside of the door frame, trunk release is broken and my cruise control is broken! for the last 4months my car has been sitting at atlanta dodge llc! just after leaving it with their service department, i received a call saying i needed a new battery and until it was replaced for $180 they could not do a diagnostic check for any other problems!! the battery was not even a year old and worked fine when i left the car at the dealership!! but in hopes of any decent service i bought another battery from advanced auto parts $40 and took it in myself. during this visit i reminded them that my make and model car was under a recall, they informed me that it was not!! i gave them the nhtsa recall documentation and was told that it didn't apply to my car, only to the neons from the plant in new mexico!! just after thanksgiving i decided to call them to find out what has been going on. i spoke with brian the cs rep. and he informed me that the mechanics could not figure out what was wrong with my car and refused to research any further unless i agreed to spend no less than $250 towards the repairs!! it's not a coincidence that the same parts are in need of repairs as 15,000 other neons -- regardless of which plant the vehicles were assemblied, the defects lie in the placement and/or manufacturing of the faulty parts and should be covered under any relating recalls! *nm updated 12/1505. *jb

Location:
Johnson City, TN

the car idles very high and then accelerates to higher speeds without touching the accelerator pedal. there is a high acceleration boosts and spurts when first accelerating from a stopped position, causing car to lunge forward at high speeds. the car refuses to start when not used daily, such as a problem with the starter or the alternator, but no problems have been found with either parts upon inspections by a mechanic. front axles pop when turning. key is hard to disengage or remove from the ignition. brakes are constantly squealing and wear every 3-6 months regardless f how the car is driven. though it may or not be a problem for some, the fold down seats in the rear seat do not have a disengage lever from the trunk. over-head dome light does not function properly and has faulty wiring, so that even though all doors are closed the dome light never shuts off. there is constantly a fuse light that flashes in my dash, though all fuses have been checked numerous times and all are in perfect working order, though they have been replaced, the warning light still flashes. the utility outlet/cigarette lighter outlet doesn't and has not ever worked since the car was bought in 2004. fuses have been replaced multiple times, but the problem still has not been fixed. water leaks in from rain or windshield wipers causing musty odor in the car. car constantly over-heats during travel over 35-40 miles and leaks anti-freeze, though no leaks or pin holes of any kind could be found. trunk sticks making it hard to open or disengage, caused key to be broken off inside the trunk lock. *jb
