When GM discontinued their oldsmobile line (which i owned all cutlass models) i decided to purchased my 2003 Intrepid SXT. I wanted a car to carry my friends and for camping. I was suprised that my car, the the back seat down, held more than a honda crv. It presently has almost 115,000 and just did the regular maintainence recomendations. I was suprised on the open road I have gotten approx 27 mpg with the air on.
Hopefully they will bring back the production of the intrepid as they have with other models. I would purchase another if they do.
This is my second Intrepid. I bought my 2003 SXT brand new over 8 years ago. I currently have 259000 miles on it. Only 1 tune up done at 115000 miles, oil changed every 6000 miles. Mostly regular maintenance was all it needed until about 200000 miles. With age and mileage things wear out, radiator, water pump, ac compressor and condensor. But engine and transmission still strong. Looks, runs and sounds almost like new. I hear people a lot saying all Intrepids have serious engine or transmission problems and they don't last. I think most of their problems were probably lack of proper care and maintenance. Best car in the U.S. Wish they were still made, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
Power, dependability, comfort, style (inside and out), roominess.
I bought my Dodge Intrepid just last year and it's been a great car, matter of fact the best four-door sedan I have ever driven or bought even so it gives me some difficulties like I had to get the transmission rebuilt at 91,000 some odd miles but does get me from point A to point B when I need it to.
The 3.5 liter High Output V-6 with dual exhaust 60-seris flowmaster and two 2 1/2 inch tips.
I test drove about 12 used cars, and then stumbled into the SXT, which I had not even considered when I started looking. After I drove it once, I was sold. Car is all around fantastic. Power is great and handling is superior for this size of car. Braking is superb. Styling of exterior and interior are both acceptable.
Power and handling.
None worth mentioning. No car is going to be perfect for everyone. This car is as good as it gets for the price.
So far I am really impressed with the
Comfort,power,roominess and so far no
problems at all. The dealership has
been great and I am proud to be a Dodge
Owner. Needs more advertisement. In my
opinon Dodge does not promote this
vehicle. It is far superior to its
Power,appearance,color(Inferno Red) I
have had a lot of compliments on looks.
Interior needs refinement. Not as
luxurious as some of it competition.
Should have an optional wood grain dash.
