Be Aware of 2.7 engine
By TamiinIndiana on


2001 Dodge Intrepid SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Don't buy this car! There's a defect
in the 2.7 engine and Dodge won't
acknowledge. After 62,000 miles my
timing chain needs replaced, but I
can't find a mechanic in my area that
will do it. They will only replace the
engine and it would cost me overe
$6,000 and a 6-8 week wait to find a
motor because of the high demand. I
had been very pleased with my car up to
this point. But now I'm without a
vehicle and still owe $8,000 on it.

Best Features

The interior and trunk size.

Worst Features

A redesigned engine. I ran out of space in the review section so I'll finish my comment here. The engine doesn't push the oil through and it builds up an oil sludge. I have searched the internet and have found hundreds of complaints like mine.
