Review

These older dodge intrepid's are much better than the 1998-2004 model years.

1996 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

I picked up an Intrepid ES as a temporary car while my new one is in for major repairs and fell in love. The exterior looks drab (an older sedan style) but it drives like nothing I've seen before. Handles all road conditions beautifully and has more than enough power. I'm actually considering some body work (snazzy stuff) and might keep it. Shame that Chrysler didn't stick with this engine - it's magic.


Best Features

Excellent torque, easy highway handling, surprisingly good mileage (for an older car) and the original stereo is just sick (better than the aftermarket one in my newer SUV). Steering is a bit stiffer than what I'm used to, took a couple hours to adjust but it does take corners and curves very well.


Worst Features

It's 2013 - and this is a 1996 - so improvements are not relevant. If I could travel back in time, I would give the car a sportier look, shorter body and more room for the driver.

Review

Bought this car new in 1995 and just after the warranty was up it was nothing but trouble.
The A/C evaporator core (defective but Chrysler wouldn't do anything) went, water pump, steering linkage, etc...
I traded it in (it had 71,000 miles) for a new 2004 Honda CRV.
The CRV was the best and most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.

Review

I purchased my 1996 Intrepid in fall of 1995 - it's the best car a ever owned - I've had some problems with it.
I now have 565,000 kilometers on the origingal engine - I use regular 5 30 weight oil with power up as an engine additive.
My brother bought a second hand 1996 Intrepid identical to mine and it had 185,000 km's it now has over 400,000 km's - super engine!!

Review

I have had the car for 5 years with no problems. Now it has 200,650 miles on it. I am having trouble with check engine light staying on and the air bag light stays on now and some how it is connected to the air conditioner and windows they don't work when light is on. Also a mechanic told me the air bag can blow at any time in this condition when driving. this could be very dangerous or cause a deadly accident
