After 235,000 miles, I finally had to lay her to rest. Many mechanics will tell
you the 2.7 Chrysler engines have a timing chain problem but this one was made in Canada and I had no problems; the engine was quiet on the last day. (Wife had same engine but made in USA and all the problems.) Through the years, I replaced: strut assemblies, coolant hose, normal batteries and brakes, lights. It was solid; best car I've ever owned. Goodbye, I'll miss you.

I bought my wife this 2000 Intrepid ES brand new.
3.2 liter .
Several moves, coupled with life events, made me the sole operator of this car in 2002.
My commutes have ranged from 750 miles per week, presently, to 1500 miles per week!
I had the door weatherstripping re-installed very early on (poor adhesive).
2 timing belts, 2 water pumps, 3 tune-ups,
3 sets of tires and religious oil changes have helped me reach this mileage.
Never been waxed (my bad, I know!), but gets stares and complements everywhere it goes.
Has never failed me in 10 New England winters, and has saved my butt twice - a deer strike, and getting T-boned by a brand-new Volvo, whose front end exploded off on impact.
A performance R/T model is onboard for 2000. Intrepids get five new colors, new seat fabric in Base models, and added horsepower and torque to ES models powered by the 2.7-liter V6. AutoStick is available with that engine, and ES buyers can order an in-dash CD changer. Tether-ready child-seat anchors have been added behind the rear seat, and cars sold in California meet LEV standards.
