1998 dodge intrepid--rack and pinion failed/broke. i had pulled up to the curb to retrieve the mail and as i turned the steering wheel to the right to pull away, i felt/heard a loud pop. the steering wheel was no longer connected to the rack and pinion as the r&p has failed/broken. the steering wheel would freely turn but the wheels were not moving. i had to have the car towed to the dealer who replaced the rack and pinion steering at a cost of $650.00. fortunately, the dealer split the cost with me as i had just bought the car (used) 30 days prior. i was still out $350.00. my biggest concern is, what would have happened to my family, specifically my wife and my 2 year old son had that part failed while i was on the highway or in heavy city traffic. it could have cost us our lives...i also have a slight shimmy in the steering wheel when the brakes are applied. i'm guessing a warped rotor as i recall reading something about that being an intrepid problem also....i warn any of you who are having steering problems to get it fixed before you drive it....the rack and pinion steering system that wont be recalled could have cost us our lives.

we purchased our 2001 dodge durango in dec. 2000. in march 2001, my husband returned to the fullerton dealership in ca to have the vehicle looked at due to prob. with the steering wheel on the freeway, when he hit bumps. they could not find a problem wtih the vehicle, advised him that it was just due to the los angeles freeways. we have taken the car in on several occasions due to it feeling wobly and unstable, we have been told time and time that we need wheel alingments. also, we were experiencing a prob. with the brakes reverbrating, only to be informed that it was part of the anti-lock brake system. yesterday, i was driving home and nearly hit a pedestrian and several vehichles because i lost control of the vehicle, the steering wheel was "off-center" and i was not able to control it. when i made a turn, specifically, left the steering wheel felt like it was skidding or hydroplanning. i recently had tires put ont he vehicle and a wheel alignment. it feels like my wheel on the left (driver's) side is going to fall off. i am having the vehicle towed to the dealer today. *ak

dt*: the contact stated the vehicle was steering poorly and therefore, it was taken to a local dealer. the dealer determined the rack was broken and it was replaced. now, while driving 3mph the wheels tow in and the tie rods move to the center of the rack. the vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where the mechanic was unable to determine if the problem was caused by a defective design or by the prior replacement of the rack and pinion.

within the first 30,000 miles i noticed an oily substance on the floor of my garage underneath the rear of my durango. i took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the rear pinion seal was bad and had to be replaced. the seal was replaced and 13,000 miles later i noticed the same oily substance on the garage. i took the vehicle back to the dealer and was told the rear pinion seal had gone bad again. the first time was covered by the warranty and was at no cost to me. the second time was past 36,000 miles but still within my 75,000 mile warranty. i was informed that since it was past 36,000 miles i would have to pay a $100 deductible. i do not haul things with my vehicle and do not understand why the seal continues to go bad. *jb

i was turning left onto a main highway and i heard a clicking noise, a loud thud and scraping noise onto the asphalt. i could not maneuver the vehicle. i could have been struck by other cars that are usually traveling about 60 mph on highway 211 in barrow county. i was barely able to get it off the road. i was on the shoulder of the highway with a gulley on the passengers side and heavy 5:00 traffic on the driver's side. due to the inability to maneuver this vehicle, the tail end was barely off the highway. people would honk at me as they sped by. i had my 5 year old daughter in the 2nd row seat, and had to get out of the van, making sure i would not be struck by speeding cars, and determine which way to get her out safely. i took her out the back of the van very carefully. this entailed her having to climb over the 3rd row seating. if the van would have been struck, it would have rolled down the embankment. the tow truck driver stated this was the 4th caravan he had towed that day with the same problem. the dealership is repairing at a cost of $500.00 to me plus towing of $50.00. i called dodge as this is the 2nd defect within 4 months of owning this van. they took the report and that was it. they do not acknowledge any responsibility for either repair. the first was in april, the entire computer system was replaced, costing $900 and three weeks to repair it. akins ford in winder did both repairs. *jb
