I just purchased the 2004 Dodge Intrepid for my daughter (it is her first vehicle) 2 weeks ago and at first she noticed she had issues starting it. I thought with 38,000 miles, it would be a reliable car but it has stopped on her while she was driving twice now! Found the camshaft sensor needed to be replaced. We also are looking at the crank sensor but I am frustrated with the reliablity of a 2004 car with low miles. My husband was upset that we purchased a Dodge and I regret our decision as well.
The roominess of this car is wonderful and so is the body/design. Very nice, comfortable interior and fun to drive.
Reliability is key. I wanted to purchase a US made car and am dissapointed with the poor quality we have experienced so far. In reading reviews on this make/model I am finding others who are frustrated.
