1999 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan

Review

I decided to buy a U.S. car because I thought that by now most cars are similar in reliability. This car was okay until the engine went out at 66,000 miles. My research on the internet has found that this is a common problem with this engine (V-6 2.6 litre). Dodge/Chrysler will not help out in any way (I tried). 3 other people where I work had similar problems with the engine going out (1999,2000 and 2001). Daimler-Chrysler has no idea how many people will never buy a Dodge again. Word of mouth is spreading on the Intrepid; all of the repair shops know about the problem with this engine.

Favorite Features

Very roomy, lots of space. Huge trunk. Smooth ride when it was running. Decent gas mileage (24 mpg all-around).

Suggested Improvements

This engine should have never made it to the marketplace. I am surprised that the federal government is not involved considering all of the compliants with this vehicle. Brakes and rotors constantly go out. Power windows work when they want to.
