Drive Over Durability. Good is Enough
By roadrunner on
2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan
This vehicle came off lease with a full warranty and has got me to and fro safely on many road trips on the east coast. However the warranty paid for several issues: bad lock, bad evaporator(a/c), transmission cooler lines, oil sensor, and output sensor. Nothing catastrophic yet at 92K, just annoying stuff. It was stolen and broken into twice because the locks are cheap; get an alarm in the city. The motor runs great with KN Filter and regular engine cleaner additive every 4K.
Great for toting anything, comfortable, pretty and handles great on backroads. Gas mileage averages 24.5 city/highway with KN air filter.
Extending warranty to 100K before Hyundai wipes them off the map is wise. Fix electrical issues and build better engines.
