Lotsa car for little bucks
By dhughes1 on
2001 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
ES with 3.2 and Autostick. I bought it
used with 21K. More car for the money
than most. I've put 10K on in 6
months; no problems other than a
vibration in the engine compartment on
a cold start. Much improved over
my '96 Intrepid; quieter, many design
improvements. My only real gripe is
poor low end torque. You have to get
deep into the throttle to make it
really go (which it will!).
Looks, huge trunk, ride, gas mileage is
great (haven't seen below 25 yet, have
gotten up to 32 on the highway).
Corners very well. 3.2 engine can move
you out of trouble real quick.
Loosen up the lockup so transmission
will downshift without having to shove
gas down 3/4 of the way. Faster
steering ratio. 5 speed auto.
