2004 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I owned a 2004 Dodge Intrepid for about 9 months. It ran great. No major problems. I think all we replaced was the battery and we had a slow leak in our tires. One day my mom and i were driving home and a driver fell asleep and crossed the line and struck our Intrepid. Completly totaled our car, but it saved our lives. The cops at the scene said if we had been in a different vehicle we probably wouldn't have made it out. This car is VERY safe and i thank God that we had been riding in that car on that day. We got roughly 24-28mpg and it rides really smooth. Cons: shape of car makes tricky blind spots, and has long nose. Huge trunk space and easy handeling. Reccomend this car to anyone!


Best Features

Trunk, comfortable seating, easy driving.


Worst Features

Shape of car (make blind spots better)

2004 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd intrepid, my son has the 1st one ,an '03 SE 2.7L engine with 100K miles. The '03 has had only 2 repairs totaling $450 (air cond line & ignition key swithc) besides brakes (which lasted a long time). Because of '03 reliability, I bought an '04 with low mileage. Have had 5 months with no problems. 2.7L engines do require frequent oil changes. I used Mobil 1 and the engine is whisper quiet with 100K miles (no other oil would produce these results). The new one is a 3.5L but I still use Mobil 1. These are great road cars but are hard to park & backup due to poor visibility. I obviously like them & will buy another one, even when they are 10 years old.


Best Features

great brakes, don't get tired (comfort) even after 300miles of continuous driving,


Worst Features

better cruise control

2004 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this car with 60,000 miles on it, full service records and no history of problems (I've put three years and 22,400 on it). Supremely roomy interior, we *used* to take several long trips comfortably, however this engine has completely seized up and shut down in the middle of interstate driving (talk about excitement...), while applying the brake in city driving etc. despite regular and routine maintenance. I've replaced most of the electrical system and half the replaceable components of the engine for more $$ than I care to admit. Nothing but trouble from this engine (I though it was just the 2.7s, guess I'm just lucky)!!! Shame, too...it's comfortable, and a ton of fun to drive.


Best Features

Huge interior, great trunk space.


Worst Features

More negative comment, since they don't make it anymore... but the turn radius is about that of a large cruise ship, blind spots are fairly large (most folk not familiar with the car have trouble reversing and paralell parking it because it's a boat), oh, and my engine's been shot from day one.

2004 Dodge Intrepid Sedan ES 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought with 23,000 miles and have been on 3 road trips with it. Mileage is great for a larger V6, performance is smooth and ride is quiet. The trans shifts smoothly and the car handles a lot like a smaller and lighter vehicle. Mileage on trips has been around 27 with in town driving around 19 or so.


Best Features

Leather interior, sound system, smooth ride and handling.


Worst Features

Rear window pillars are in a bad place to see when backing out of a parking space. Rear view mirror could be concave to see a wider part of the roadway.
