I own a 1998 Dodge Intrepid with 182,000 miles and it still runs without a problem. I can say I got the good built 2.7 because I've never experienced any problems with it since I've had it for the past year. I keep up on the maintnence I get my motor cleaned often and change the plugs every once in a while. I love this car and am glad it's been good to me. I don't know anyone that has an Intrepid with 182,000, miles.
