What is this discussion about?
Dodge Intrepid, Sedan
#96 of 3457 Problems with my 1993 Intrepid
Aug 09, 2000 (3:54 pm)
I guess I bought mine before they had problems ironed out, but I will never buy another Dodge. I only have 56,700 miles on my 1993. I had new tires, new transmission, the ABS light has never been unlit (taken in several times to dealer to check computer), my keyless entry never worked right. I have a short now with the horn so the fuse blows everytime the horn is blown. I had the driver window motor replaced. Now the latest happened yesterday, the back end started shaking horribly and made loud noises and almost fishtailed. I couldn't go over 15 mph without this happening. I had it towed to a garage today.
What do you think that could be? I am tired of not being able to rely on my car.

Your problems with the Intrepid are all very typical. Your best bet is to replace it asap and be prepared to take a beating on the trade in value. Most dealers know the reputation of the DC herd and value them accordingly.
You will probably get a better reception if you stay in maintanance topic 1414. This topic should be renamed Intrepid Huggers only. I am surprised your negative post hasn't been deleted the host here also seems to be inclined to hug DC.

just got back from a trip to tx. i finally "broke free" from the 26 mpg rut i was in. i got 28 last time and it looks like the tank i'm on now is going to be another good one.

how many miles do you have on your car?? the more miles the better gas mileage you'll get.
#105 of 3457 gas mileage !

I used to get an average of 24.2 mpg in mixed driving.
This was before the battery was replaced.
After the battery replacement I started of getting 18 mpg in the same driving conditions.
Now it has slowly reached 22.5 mpg. Hopefully in another month it might get back to 24.xx
Looks like it acts like a new car after the battery is replaced.
