1998 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


I bought this car, in perfect shape,
with 53K miles on it. I've religiously
changed the oil and it now has 94K on
it. This is NOT high for high quality
car. In 3 months, the engine went from
being trouble free to burning a qt of
oil/week. Diagnosis: top end needs
rebuilding. No REPUTABLE or HONEST
mechanic or rebuild shop will touch it.
Daimler Chrysler uses build
techniques and equipment that shops
can't duplicate. I can buy another 2.7L
motor from a junkyard or a dealership
at one heck of a price (quoted $4K to
$8K). I've had 3 other problems: faulty
oil pressure sensor, power window motor
failure, and engine accessory belt
pulley bearing failure.

Best Features

Gas mileage (before the engine failed) for a car that size, stereo, cold A/C, sifficent engine power, and style.

Worst Features

Unfortunatley, the most expensive improvement needed...engine quality.
