Cheap overall cost - but needed repairs
By 150kMileIntrepid on


1996 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


Bought in '96 w/ 64k mi for $9k. The
car rides great, good mileage for a car
of it's size, and is roomy. Here are
the repairs I've made: A/C rebuilt
$1200, Steering Rack $1000, Cyl. Head
Gaskets & Engine Cradle Bushings $1200,
Sway Bars, Struts, Tie Rods $1700 at
145k mi. Susp/steering has a bit to be
desired. Overall cost of ownership was
~ $0.29 per mile. Cheap to own - but it
has its problems - calling it quits w/
when the next repair bill rolls in -
can't really expect too much more than
150k mi w/ this car I think. Yeah, I
needed to make alot of repairs but it
was still cheaper to own than a camry
etc. - and roomier to. I'd buy another
used one.

Best Features

Spacios interior and trunk

Worst Features

Dodge needs to fix the steering rack / suspension problems. And there's no excuse for not having a better-designed A/C.
