1995 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


Review

I picked up this vehicle used for a good price. It initially didn't have many problems, but after a while I had a MAJOR problem with the electrical system where the airbag light will come on, the windows won't go up or down, and the heat a/c won't come on. This usually happened when it was hot out (which is precisely when you need the windows to go down and A/C on). I found out later that this was a common problem in this model, because all of these features are in a single circuit on the modular control unit. The cost to fix the problem is higher than the Book Value of the car, bc you need to change out the whole unit. Don't buy this car.


Favorite Features

Very cheap car, the motor lasts for a long time.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the MCU issue. A bit too late for that now.

Review

Bought in immidate need of a car after my caravan was totaled didn't have much info barely looked it over and honestly hated it. My radio/clock didn't work, bad AC,wipers just never were enough even new, had to replace brake lines, now brake pads and forever adding oil. Horn stopped working, and highlights weren't bright though bulbs were good. I barely got 17mpg in town, as much as I hated and didn't keep up manitence it was still A TANK! It got me where I needed to go and is still running strong with all that needs working on at 166000+ miles. I will miss the size, just bought a neon, but otherwise won't miss the car. Needs alot of manitence so much I just couldn't keep up. owned 18 months


Favorite Features

Lots of room.

Review

Bought it used with 40,000 miles, now has 150,000. 3.5 liter engine. The water pump and timing belt needs replacement every 70,000 or so. Tie rod ends last about 5 years. It's a solid car, nothing fancy in terms of creature comforts, but dependable. I keep track of repair costs and it averages about 1.2 cents per mile driven, much better than 2.4 and 2.8 for my two Bonnevilles. It needs to warm up a while before driving in our cold winters. Daughter has it at college, and still is dependable.


Favorite Features

Dependablity. Good gas mileage (28 on highway) Lots of power.


Suggested Improvements

Dodge designed a fairly solid car, so none by me.

Review

Ok, it's not perfect. It has the same tie-rod issues everybody seems to have. But I presently have 268,000 miles on mine, and it still runs like a top. Extremely nice handling, very comfortable ride, reliable, original engine. AC has been out for years, and it's starting to show a little rust on the doors, and sure, I replace a part here and there over time, but I can't kick. It still feels like a luxury car, and I still love the design of it, inside and out.


Favorite Features

Smooth handling, smooth running car.


Suggested Improvements

Tie rods are a real weak spot.

Review

my intrepid is my first car. i got it from my grandfather my junior year of high school. i had to rebuilt the trani at 120,000 and until 208,985 i haven't had a single issue with it. fuel pump, water pump, front tie rod, and timing belt are the only issues i've had with her. it's the perfect first car, sporty, efficient, reliable, and comfort, dodge so needs to start rolling them out again. i call her my old man sports car becuase of the comfort as well as the pep that it has. most amazing car ever, i'll hate to get rid of it.


Favorite Features

simple panneling inside. comfort is a huge plus, good looks, good fuel economy, my million mile car!


Suggested Improvements

oil filter is a pain to get to. entire engine set up and work space wasn't very well placed. very compact under the hood.

Review

Still gets 20 in the city and 28-30 highway. Had to replace the timing belt and water pump(second one) and the starter but heck it is almost 15 yrs old!!! I will just cry when I finally have to give it up but let me tell you, I will drive it until the wheels fall off or I can qualify for the $4500 credit - not likely due to the mileage it gets. Never a clunker and there are still a number of these big guys out on the road here in GA.


Favorite Features

Seats, engine, hauling room


Suggested Improvements

Dodge needs to bring this great car back.

Review

I bought this intrepid from its third owner. Considering the abuse it recieved from the last owner, I was amazed to see it even run. It has the 3.3L and it gets 16mpg in town and 28mpg on the highway. I will swear by the intrepid as long as I'm a qualified technition.


Favorite Features

The Whole Car


Suggested Improvements

Better Trans and different Airbags, OEM Airbags have a tendancy to go off in extreme heat.

Review

It has a very strong 3.5 liter, 24 valve engine. Problems we have encountered are the water pump goes out at 70,000 miles, according to the mechanic who says he fixes about 4 a week. If you are lucky, the pulley seizing on the pump will shred the timing belt and kill the engine immediately, otherwise, the engine will overheat and warp the heads, increasing the cost from $700 to $2800. Some sort of bolt on the steering mechanism has stripped a couple of times, needing the front end to be dropped down to replace, which has been spendy.


Favorite Features

The engine is very strong. The styling is good.


Suggested Improvements

Higher quality water pump, and more comfortable seats.

Review

I have known owned it for a year and a half, bought with 77000miles, transmission stop shifting at 78000 miles, and it was replaced with a used one what a mistake that was. Shifts good most of the time, leaks fluid, shifts hard when fluid is full. The 3.5 gets about 16MPG in the city, and 27 on the highway. Good car over all, except the transmission.


Favorite Features

Its Cadilliac ride, and power.


Suggested Improvements

Do Ford and Dodge work together building these transmissions? Because they stink.
