98' Intrepid Brake lockup/engine check lighe

edited March 2014 in Dodge
My first Dodge....[for the heck of it..Does ANYONE
make a car
that does not have nightmares?]
98 Intrepid with 28K, 37K and now 44K miles
keeps locking up the brakes while driving...
creating a "stuck in the autostick light position"
while still being in regular "D". Feels like it's
stuck in second gear and ENGINE CHECK light comes
on. Poor dealer mechanics...not their fault half
the time but they get to take the heat from angry
customer while the automaker sits up there in
Detroit eatin' smores and choking down those almost
billion dollar profits. Is it just me or are cars
getting worse and US auto manufacturers caring
less about putting a quality[we'll settle for
"decent" product] product on the market.
Is it any wonder why the Asian(Japanese) are
kicking USA butt in long term/overall quality
of their product. I'll raise my hand for a head
of ANY US auto manufacturing CEO job. I think 90%
of people on this Edmunds could do a better job.
I'll BUY US as much as possible BUT NOT if it
continues down this road....again!!

    Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble.

    Are you looking for help with your brake and check engine light problems? If so, we have a couple of topics you should read through, here are links:

    Brake (Topic #447)
    "Check engine" light (Topic #76)

    Generally it is better to find a topic that is relevant to post your questions/thoughts in, rather than to create a whole new one directed at no one in particular. You are far more likely to get better responses that way - more folks will see your posts.

    The easiest way to do this is to use the Topic Search feature on the left side of the page for relevant key words (one search at a time).

    You might like to join in on this active discussion over in our News and Views Conference:

    Car Quality & Reliability on its way Down? (Topic #720) (in News and Views)

    Good luck.
