This car has everything you could need.
Enough power, comfort, and
reliability. I have over 110,000 miles
and it still runs very smooth and
strong and the interior is practically
brand new. Nothing has gone out on it,
automatic climate control, automatic
dimmer for rearview mirror, horsepower,
trunkspace, and rims.
We've had our fully loaded ES for over
5 years and we love it- roomy and
comfortable and reliable. To date,
the only major probelm has been the
transmission control module, replaced
under warranty at 20,000m. Replacing
the OEM struts and upgrading to
235/55/17 tires/wheels made it handle
Great ergonomics, trunk big enough to
camp in. Comfortable long haul
cruiser. Solid after five years with
Better quality window lifts (our left
rear is intermittent), could use more
sound deadening- our 2004 Durango
Limited is 100% quieter!! Could use a
few more ponies under the hood,
especially at altitude.
I bought this leased vehicle from my
company (who obtained it new) and I
know it had good perodic maintenance
because I saw the records but it had
catastrophic failure of the engine and
transmission with less than 74,000
miles on it.
Daimler-Chrysler should be ashamed of
this 2.7L engine.
I loved this car when I first got it.
It's so comfortable and drives really
nice. I had a couple of minor issues,
which you can always expect when you
own a car. The problem came when the
oil light started coming on a few
months ago. My oil didn't need
changed so I didn't undertand the
problem. The repair shop told me this
is an issue w/ Dodge engines. The oil
cannot circulate because of narrow
passages and therefore cooks the oil,
causing a sludge buildup. After
researching I found that this really
is a common problem among this car.
Just do a search on "oil
sludge Intrepid". Now my car has
51,000 miles and will die soon.
Roomy and comfortable to drive.
Fix the engine please. Dodge was
unwilling to help me out.
This car is drop dead gorgeous. It is
easily the best looking car with four
doors. The interior is huge and very
comfortable and it dash and gauges look
sporty. While the car is really big
physically, it handles very well and is
quite tossable on backroads. The base
V6 could have been more powerful
though, but it was adequate enough for
most situations. Reliability is
actually quite good with no serious
problems to report, though with 75000
miles on it, the power windows are
begining to short circuit sometimes.
Overall, though, it is a very good car
with good value, lots of style, and a
high fun to drive quotient.
The styling inside and out. The huge
trunk was great for vacations and the
front buckets are so comfortable and
are well bolstered.
I wish cd player was standard equipment
back in 1999. The rear vision could be
a bit better and the base engine could
use more power. Also, the rear seat,
while plenty comfortable, could be
slightly more upright.
