I bought my 1994 base in 1998 with 87,000 km on it. The car now has 485,000 km. The a/c still works and so does pretty much everything else. There is a short in the rear defogger. I had a tranny problem in 2002 and had it rebuilt for $2,500. Still works great. Only thing I don't like is the lack of head room and I'm only 6 feet and not the best mileage. Looking for a small 4 cyl but intend to keep the Intrepid. Oh, never had to change the exhaust system and I never get stuck in the snow and I only use all-season tires. Rear springs done about 2 years ago.
Blasts through snow, fun to drive, great on highway. Easy to work on. Cheap parts at wreckers. Roomy interior, cave size trunk, good towing capacity. 3.3 L engine has timing chain, not a belt, so doesn't need to be changed.
Need more headroom, better gas mileage if they had a 5 or 6 speed with O/D. Headlights break if you look at them the wrong way.
Never understood why the Intrepid is a Dodge in the States and a Chrysler in Canada.
