2002 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I puchased this vehicle with 25,000
miles on the odo as a previous rental.
The 3.5l engine is a delight to drive
with plenty of torque on hand without
unnecessary downshifting. The car
handles much better than it's size
would imply and out on the highway it's
a cruising machine! The body feels very
solid with no perceived twist or flex.
No squeeks or rattles. I average
between 21 and 24 mpg in mixed rural
driving and fully expect I could get
26+ mpg on the open road. Leather seats
nicer than I expected. Love the
automatic climate control.
Engine power, mpg, interior space,
leather, smooth tranny, auto climate
control, handling, trip computer.
Fairly quiet ride (but not Passat
quiet). Initial depreciation (bought
used at a great price!)
Smaller key fob, auto down AND up
windows (passenger too!), better stereo
sound (C'mon Dodge!), Interior
materials, Improve on NVH (not bad but
room for improvement).
