Roll of the Dice

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


I bought this car used in Spring 2006 and wish I would have checked on Edmunds first before buying my Intrepid. I didn't realize that the 2.7L engine was a lemon. The A/C didnt work either. It started to leak oil last month so I traded it in for a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix with the 3800 series engine and now I sleep a lot better at night. I really liked the design of the Intrepid but didn't want to roll the dice for when the engine would go. Interior also was nicer than my Grand Prix. If you are going to buy a used Intrepid be sure it has the 3.2L or 3.5L engine in it. DaimlerChrysler has known for quite a while that the 2.7L engine had problems with oil sludge build up but did nothing.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, map lights, plenty of legroom for backseat passengers

Worst Features

Chrysler needs to take responsibility for their flawed engine design. Also make an A/C unit (evaporator core) that last longer than a couple of years.
