1997 Dodge Intrepid for sale. Car body is beat up and well used (see pictures) and does have a few issues that are listed below. Drove the car for many years but don't have the mechanic skills or the patience to take car of the issues that currently exist. Bought another car before last winter so the Intrepid did sit in a parking lot for most of the winter. The car does start up with no problems and the engine works well. Technically the car is drivable, but not advised without someone who knows what they are doing looking it over first. Perfect for someone with access to a mechanic or to be used for parts. 

Extra Parts: 

Radiator: Car had some overheating issues that were at first thought to be the radiator. A used radiator was bought, but the heating issue turned out to be due to blockage. The second radiator ended up not being used.
Alternator: Car had some battery issues that turned out to be something else. Alternator was replaced, unsure if the original works or not but is included. 
After market radio: CD player was installed (see picture)

Known issues: 

Body is beat up, sun damage, dents, rust. See pictures. She is no longer pretty.
Car lighter doesn't work
No break pressure: back passenger breaks were installed incorrectly. Should be a simple matter of installing correctly, but could be more then that.
AC does not work (was informed it just needed a hose replaced?)
Exhaust leak
Back driver tire seems aligned a bit off. Not sure if its my vision playing tricks or if there is an issue there, but want it noted just in case. 
Turn signal works, but when turning right it does need to be held. 

Driver side tire went flat during the winter and incurred some damage. Currently have replaced it with the spare. Old tire is included, not sure if the damage is fixable or not.

If you have any questions please ask away. Full disclosure, I'm not mechanic and I know very little about cars. I have done my best to provide all of the issues that I know about the vehicle but can't promise anything beyond that. Car is being sold AS IS. Priced to be sold and willing to entertain ALL best offers. If your willing to come get it and take it off my hands I'm open to most offers. So please send in a Best Offer! Junkyard has given me a quote for the vehicle and they will pick it up for free. I'm a little partial to the car, however, and despite her looks and issues she was extremely reliable for the majority of the time I drove her and the engine doesn't seem to be missing any steps. Would rather see her go to someone who would patch her up and use her as a secondary vehicle or to be used for parts. But mainly I'd like to just see her go. 

I do have a few more pictures as well as a video of the engine running. If you would like to see this, please contact me and I would be happy to send them to you.

Chrysler recalls 350k vehicles over ignition switches

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:44:00 EST

Chrysler has announced a recall covering 349,442 vehicles due to ignition switches that can either become stuck or move without warning. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2008 model year, and were built before May 12, 2008.
The automaker has learned that ignition keys on some vehicles "may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position during engine-startup," the company said in a statement. Additionally, "an ignition key may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position and may inadvertently move through the 'ON' position to 'ACCESSORY' or 'OFF.'"
Chrysler says it is unaware of any related injuries, and notes that while reduced braking, engine or steering power is possible in such instances, the airbags are not affected. The later stands in contrast to General Motors' recent rash of high-profile recalls, and it's an important distinction that Chrysler (understandably) felt necessary to call out in bold print in its press release.

Chrysler earns $1.7B in 2012, revises product plans for US

Wed, 30 Jan 2013 10:59:00 EST

Hot on the heels of Ford's earnings announcement for the year that was, Chrysler today reported a 2012 net income of $1.7 billion, up substantially from the comparatively minuscule $183 million profit earned in 2011 when it repaid its US government loans.
Chrysler's good year ended with an excellent fourth quarter that saw net income rise 68 percent from $225 million in 2011 to $378 million. Where are all those extra earnings coming from? Market share, which Chrysler saw increase to 11.4% last year on sales of 1.65 million vehicles. In fact, the Auburn Hills, MI-based automaker out-paced the industry's market growth of 13 percent last year with sales up 21 percent for the year.
The company also revealed an updated product plan for its Chrysler Group and Fiat brands that looks all the way out to 2016. It's an updated version of the plan introduced in 2009 shortly after Fiat took control of the American automaker, and includes such new additions as an Alfa Romeo model, likely the 4C, to be introduced in the US this year, as well five more Alfa models by 2016. Likewise, Fiat will be growing by an additional seven models in the coming few years.

Chrysler to accelerate production of 2013 Ram and V6 engines

Fri, 16 Nov 2012 18:44:00 EST

Chrysler is adding a third shift at its Warren Truck plant to meet demand for the new 2013 Ram pickup. And with tight supplies of its Pentastar V6, the company is also boosting output at its Mack Engine plant.
The expansions will add 1,250 jobs and are part of a $238 million investment by Chrysler in the Detroit area. Warren's third shift will begin work sometime in the spring, a Chrysler rep told Automotive News. Mack's increased Pentastar production a could include both 3.6 and 3.2-liter engines.
The company says it also plans to invest $40 million in its Trenton Engine plant to allow for production of a 3.2-liter V6 as well as the Tigershark inline-four for the upcoming Jeep Liberty replacement.
