1999 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

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, yet.


Best Features

automatic climate control, automatic dimmer for rearview mirror, horsepower, trunkspace, and rims.


Worst Features

cupholders, heated seats.

1999 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

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 even better.


Best Features

Great ergonomics, trunk big enough to camp in. Comfortable long haul cruiser. Solid after five years with no ratttles.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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.


Worst Features

Build it to last.

Review

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.


Best Features

Roomy and comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

Fix the engine please. Dodge was unwilling to help me out.

Review

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.


Best Features

The styling inside and out. The huge trunk was great for vacations and the front buckets are so comfortable and are well bolstered.


Worst Features

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.
