Nice ride, but utterly unreliable
By dfr on


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


The car handles well, looks nice, and gets good mileage but is a maintenance nightmare. I was stranded twice by the electrical system while under warranty. In the last 6 months, the car has needed a new oil tray and oil pump ($600) a new timing chain and tensioner ($1200) a new water pump ($800) and a new ais motor and pcv valve with odds and ends for $700. All these repairs were needed between 50,000 and 58,000 miles! Although all cars have problems, having this many on a car this young is completely unacceptable. Aside from the financial hardship, this vehicle's lack of reliability forced me to miss two job interviews and a vacation.

Best Features

Good mileage and handling for a car this size.

Worst Features

Nothing else matters when a car is as unreliable and expensive to maintain as this. I would like to continue buying American, but this and other negative experiences have led me to the conclusion that doing so would be foolish.
