Review of the 2002 Dodge Intrepid

  • You can't deny it, the Intrepid is a big car. It looks big, it seats five in relative comfort, yet surprisingly, it doesn't drive like a large car. And with a choice of three well-equipped modes, the Intrepid can serve as anything from a stylish family sedan to a bargain sport sedan.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Plenty of passenger/luggage capacity, agile handling, powerful engines.

  • Cons

    Dated ergonomics, blind spots when backing up, engine noise when pressed.

  • What's New for 2002

    A few functional upgrades take place. The 3.2-liter V6 is dropped as the 3.5-liter engine becomes an option on the ES model, a new SXT model debuts, sporting the R/T's higher-output engine, and the antilock brakes now have Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.

Miss my intrepid

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Intrepid R/T 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

After I wrecked my first car, my dad settled on an 02 Dodge Intrepid R/T. It was perfect for a teenage girl who often drives with multiple people. Lots of space in the car/trunk, and a very comfortable ride. My Dad claimed he had trouble seeing out of it, but at 19 I had no trouble. I had this car for 2 1/2 months, and in a freak accident it caught on fire in mid April due to a gas leak. The fire department could not make it to the scene in time to stop the car from being totaled. The engine was completely melted and the car was finished. We had only liability on this so insurance did not cover the loss. Despite the way I lost it, this car will probably always be my favorite. I recommend it.




Dreading the day

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Intrepid R/T 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I am dreading the day when I will have to replace this car. There is simply nothing currently on the market that can replace this car's interior space. Also despite it's size, it drives like a much smaller car. I currently have in excess of 100,000 miles on this car after purchasing it new in 2002. Mechanically, the transmission had to be rebuilt at 80,000 miles, and have had no other problems. The interior is still excellent with no visible wear (two children). I also replaced the 17" chrome wheels with Vox aftermarket aluminum wheels due to corrosion causing rim leaks. This has been the best 4 door sedan I have ever owned including Volvos, Mercedes, and Toyotas I owned in the past.

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Intrepid R/T 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Several months ago I purchased my first Dodge vehicle (2002 Intrepid R/T) Man...I must have been living under a rock! This car is awesome! I'm 6'5 and have a traveling job. This car has it all; style, performance, comfort, safety & reliability. If you can find one of these cars, I recommend that you buy it.
