1997 Dodge Intrepid Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

Not real happy right now with car problems two issues so far less than month. I love the style. Or should I say the teens in neighborhood love it. Already real nervous. Have learned a lot of people have problems with bushing going out right away.$200 total for parts only. Water pump already going out. Would love manual. Oil came up to over flow already that makes me nervous. Used 4ways first time made blinkers stop working. Found out bad wire on battery so its fixed. Would I buy another one. Don't know too many people complaining already never ckd out details before buying


Best Features

shifter on floor, shifts easy drives great..have sun roof moon roof which i truly love, tinted windows


Worst Features

better bushing system, don't like cup holders location or style..design never changes but cup style does..makes no sense. headlamps not very bright

Review

I have owned this car for 5 years now. It had 50,000 miles on it when I bought it. It now has over 150,000 miles on it as of today. I have had to replace a few things here and there, radiator, thermostat, ball joints, but the exterior and interior are still in great shape and the engine is still purring. I will drive it till it dies.


Best Features

Fog Lamps Keyless entry


Worst Features

Extra center hub caps!! I lose those things all the time.

Review

I have owned this car for 8 years, I have 184,000 miles on it, general maintenance kept it in great shape. My wife had a couple fender benders, still runs like a champ. I would recommend this car to anyone. I had the cloth taken out and leather installed. I still get about 22 mpg around town, and it is as classy as anything new I have driven, and it can still jump off the line.


Best Features

Stereo, dual front elect seats, 3.5L engine rocks!


Worst Features

Visor clips - I have to replace one about every 6 months - what a pain, otherwise I love it!

Review

I bought my car 3 years ago and it has been excellent. No problems at all. My car is the sport addition with the slap shifter, which is rare. It only had one owner prior to my buying and it only had 57,000 miles on it. I have never been stranded. It has never let me down. I have made several trips to Texas. A 600 round trip. The best car I would recommend it to anyone.


Best Features

My favorite thing about the car is how comfortable it is to ride in. Great for long distance trips.
