2004 Dodge Intrepid 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.


Favorite Features

Huge interior, great trunk space.


Suggested Improvements

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 SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car in 04 for my wife. The only part I had to replace was the cable from the shifter to the transmission and tires this past summer. Aside from the dings this car is like new still and runs like it.


Favorite Features

Lots of room, good power for a big car, and fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Less plastic on the inside and better audio system.

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


Review

68,000 miles had to replace the crankshaft position sensor, 3 cam sensors, 3 batteries. Car would die and not restart. Would wait for awhile and then it would start. Found that the coupling where the positive battery cable met up at the jumper post above the air intake filter box had become corroded. This was causing the battery and cables to overheat. Flickering lights and total shutdown of the engine ensued. Cleaned the corrosion and replaced battery cable. Car runs like new.


Favorite Features

Comfortable ride. Cushy seating.


Suggested Improvements

Replace battery cable connections with corrosion resistant cables.

Review

I have had no problems with mine. I get 32 MPG highway and 24 MPG city! I love it! I have owned/driven 8 different cars in the last 6 years, and this one rises above all of them! The 2.7 is a little sluggish when the weather is warm. In the cold temperatures it is quick and powerful! Great car to own!


Favorite Features

Power everything!


Suggested Improvements

None needed!
