Engine Blow!
By Alice on


2000 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan


I was another victim of an engine blowout on the 2.7L engine. The car was also a pleasure to drive because of the amount of space, but the brakes were a bit of a hassle and required new break pads more often than similar cars in its class. The engine started giving me troubles a couple years ago and I kept putting small bandaids on the problems (mostly to do with the way the car handled oil). Then one day, I noticed a louder-than-normal knocking and then grinding and then.... I'm disappointed I didn't get more life out of this car, but it did get 146,000 miles, so it's not a total loss, but I wasn't prepared to buy again so soon.

Best Features

Interior space, trunk space, visibility.

Worst Features

Better engine, better door locks, better brakes. I'm very disappointed with Dodge at this point and cannot think of trusting their product again.
