1996 Dodge Intrepid ES 4dr Sedan


I have been disappointed with my '96
Intrepid ES. Purchased new. Water
pump went out 300 miles before the
warranty expired (fortunately for me).
Have had trouble with factory radio/CD
player not working. Bushings have
failed on the rack and pinion steering
box (expensive and impossible to get
to). Spent a lot of time/money
trying to solve a driveability
problem - turned out to be an intake
manifold gasket leak.

Paint is fading badly on the top
and it has completely flaked off the
side window mouldings.
Body intregrity is less than
acceptable. I don't think that I will
ever pay $25K+ for a new Dodge again.

Best Features

Acceleration, handling, styling good. Adequate trunk space. Front to back engine mounting facilitates some repairs.

Worst Features

Go back to the drawing board when it comes to body intregrity.
