Disappointed in Quality
By vfornelli on
Vehicle1999 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan
ReviewI purchased the Intrepid after looking
at the Volkswagon Passat. The Intrepid
was roomier, it cost less, and had a
better sound system and climate
control. However, after just 37,000
miles, I had to replace the front
bearing, rotors and pads under normal
driving conditions at a cost of nearly
$800. At 61,000 miles, I had to do the
same for the rear. I also experienced
transmission problems at 61,000 miles.
I have enjoyed the room, comfort and
gas mileage (23mpg city, 32mpg
highway), but I am very disappointed in
the mechanical quality of the vehicle.
Best FeaturesMy favorite features would include the room, comfort, trunk space, full-size spare, auto-climate control and fuel economy.
Worst FeaturesI believe the front rotors were under- specd for the car as they have warped twice in 60,000 miles of driving. The Auto-stick feature could be eliminated. I have never used it and believe that it only adds to unnecessary complications and problems within the transmission.
