Canadian Chrysler Intrepid - Better Engine
By kipstorm on
2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan
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.
Quiet engine, heavy duty fabric, well made dash. Tons of room inside. Tons of room in trunk. Quiet. Full size spare tire. Huge top of dash. Huge windshield. About 25 MPH on highway for this large car.
Cab forward sucks because the battery is below the air filter. You have to take it out by the front tire, as per the manual. Absolutely no room to work on the car, except for the spark plugs.
