"We bought this car, our second Dodge Intrepid, when our family and work needs demanded a car that was large, comfortable, good on difficult roads, good on long highway trips for business or with my wife and 3 boys, and good on gas mileage. In addition to all of that, we wanted a car that was a good value that would not be a burden to our budget for upkeep or normal operating expenses.
For 14 years we got all that we asked. The last 2 years were catching up to the car, although maintenance was still a lot less than a car-payment. I believe for a good mechanic this car will give a number of good reliable years and still be one of the best looking cars on any road. The body is almost flawless, handling is great, the finish is still very nice, and it is a superior road car with a nice engine and great balance. It is as quick and nimble as much smaller sports cars yet it is comfortable for 3 adults in the back seat.
We think Dodge made a mistake by not continuing this body style. It actually looks sleeker and more modernistic than some of the modern inverted bath tubs. Because it is low and my arthritis is a factor, we decided no move on to another car and pass this car on to someone that can enjoy the rest of its time. If my picture downloaded OK, you will see the 13 year old right beside a brand new car we were considering. Good job Chrysler/Dodge."
"A nice driving, comfortable car with constant engine trouble. Water pump is a big problem to change.. it's known for going out. Mine... 3 times! The transmission and the engine also have reoccurring issues!!! Electrical issues also. I'd call it a lemon. After google research, others agree."
"My grandfather owned the car before mw and loved it, I find the car hard to drive. It feels like it was designed for a taller person to drive. I have trouble seeing out of the back windows because of the seat rest. However the car has been a reliable and dependable car with very few repairs over the years."
"This car is my baby. Only selling because we no longer need 2 cars. I take it to church once a week and to the doctor's office. Otherwise I ride with my husband.
Great car! Rides like a million bucks! Lists at $2289 but hubby said he'll take the first $2000 offer he gets.
(maroon with grey interior)Gets 22- 25mpg around town"
"225k and has never had a major service to the engine or transmission. I have always meticulously maintained the vehicle and it has served me well. Very comfortable and a nice driver, I also get a consistent 25 to 30 MPG for the 10 years I have owned it (bought it used with 40k on it). I'm tired of people saying Dodges aren't any good, this car has been rock solid dependable!"
