Intrepid ES is Very Reliable
By Matt42 on
1999 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan
Great handling. Easy to control just
like a smaller car. 40000+ miles no
minor or major problems whatsoever. No
parts has ever been replaced yet,
including brakes. Amazingly roomy, once
carried 12ft long pipe with rear seat
folded down. Comfortable, fun to drive.
Pulls good but transmission is too slow
for manual shift down. The total
maintenance cost in 3.5 years/40000
miles excluding oil & gas is no more
than a few hundred bucks. Overall this
is a *very* reliable car.
Handling. Autostick. Roominess, huge
trunk. Full size spare. Mileage: 26-
30mpg freeway, 16-22mpg city.
A/C vent nozzles are useless, they do
not direct/stop air. Rear cup holders
missing. Full automatic A/C too
limited, needs more presets/choices for
various tastes/conditions. Road noise
at 50+ mph is too high for this type of
car. Keyless entry sometimes works only
at 1 ft range.
