2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


Whatever you do don't buy the 2.7L. Ours just blew up after 50,000 miles. If you don't beleive me do an internet search for "Dodge 2.7 sludge", you will see hundreds if not thousands of other people complaining of the same thing at even lower milage! The 2.7L has a design flaw where the top half of the engine overheats and causes oil to turn to sludge, it makes it look like it hasn't had an oil change in years even if it has and they void your warranty over it! If the sludge wasn't bad enough, the sludge screws with the timing belt tensioners and loosens the timing belts in a lot of cases too! Causing damage to lifters and requiring thousands in repairs! Class action suits have been filed

This engine needs a recall! Untill the little people start winning their lawsuits im sure dodge will do nothing about it, and has done nothing about it!
