Not so good

2001 Dodge Intrepid SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


When I bought this SE car in 2002, it ran great, no trouble at all for 5 years. At 86,000 miles and after spotless maintenance checks and oil changes-- the engine died (2.7L). I found out from many forums online-- that the 2.7L engine was total junk. The oil passages in it are microscopic which leads to oil starvation of the various parts. This is a design flaw! There is no warning! One minute the car is running, the next it stops. In my engine, the timing chain tensioner quit (oil driven)-- the OHC failed, leading to valve breakage-- result, total junk engine. For those of you whose engine is still running- you are extremely lucky! But beware-- your engine could fail at any moment!

Best Features

AS long as this car is running-- it is a dream to drive-- very comfortable and sleek, which is the reason why we bought it, UNKNOWINGLY!

Worst Features

Different engine, anything but the 2.7L engine.
