3.2 Engine is very solid
By Chris Riccio on
1998 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan
I think this could be one of the most underrated cars in the last 10-15 years. I am the original owner. It has respectable performance & handling. It gets great gas mileage. I have gotten 30 MPG on the highway and 23+ around town. Keep in mind this is not a small car. I rent cars all week being a traveling sales guy. I also own 7 other cars. This car is a still amazes me. 203K Miles and still very strong. No issues until the car had 125K on it. Recent repairs have included the air cond system, and the computer system. A few other minor repairs but this car never had a problem in the first 8 years of ownership. Like the design better then the Charger
Interior layout, gauges etc. Roomy, very comfortable on long trips, large trunk folding rear seat,air cond is blows ice (coldest I have ever felt). Living in FL, I am a good judge. Very good handling (ES with sport rims) exterior styling is very nice. When clean and waxed still a very nice looking car
Paint should have held up better, since I clean it nearly ever week and keep wax on it. Braking is just ok. Radio speakers started to have a cracking sound in just a few years. Headlights will need to be replaced due to haze after 10 years or so.
