2000 Dodge Intrepid

The 2000 Dodge Intrepid shifted things around a bit.  The standard engine on the ES model was now the same as on the base, a 2.7-liter, 200-hp V6.  The 3.2-liter, 225-hp V6, which previously was standard on ES, is now an option.  ABS, which had always been standard on ES is also now just an option.  Perhaps this is because in 2000, the Intrepid introduced the R/T peformance trim, which did have ABS standard, plus 17-inch alloy wheels, and a redesigned 3.5-liter V6 engine that reached 242-horsepower.  With the R/T, the 2000 Dodge Intrepid was moving closer to the realm of sports coupe rather than family car.

The base model also saw some upgrades, receiving 16-inch wheels and a power sunroof option.  Most owners agree that you should get an Intrepid with at least the 3.2 V6 if you want the best acceleration and engine power to match the sporty stylings of the car.  Though it is a full-size sedan, it handles like a small car, precise and responsive.  Owners also love that the trunk can fit large objects, though complain that the opening is too small get them in there.  

Other complaints include cramped legroom in the front and a lack of lumbar support in the seats. Rear blind spots present difficulties.  A lot of drivers are unhappy with their Intrepid, mostly for mechanical reasons (meaning high maintenance costs), including engine problems, transmission failures, and the power windows getting off-track.
