In the 15 months since my wife and I
purchased our Intrepid we have been
extremely happy with the decision to
purchase this vehicle. A used car with
12,000 miles from Thrifty's rental
fleet, the Dodge now has 36,000 miles
on the odometer and our only expenses
have been for fuel and oil changes.
What the base 2.7L engine may lack in
low end torque is easily forgotten as
the RPM's climb. Fuel economy is
excellant for a vehicle of this size.I
have experienced fuel mileage in excess
of 30MPG for highway driving with an
average of 18-20MPG city and highway.
It handles and looks great. I will not
hesitate to purchase another Intrepid
when replacing this car.
The transmission shifts in perfect
harmony with the torque characteristics
of the engine.The body is solid, much
better build quality than previous
Chrysler vehicles I have owned.
The cruise control is great,
downshifting to maintain set speed on
steep grades, uphill and downhill.
Road noise could be reduced and the one
touch feature would be nice for up and
down operation of the drivers and
passenger side window.
