2004 Dodge Intrepid Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 10 reviews
Some are wistful and some are thankful that 2004 was the last year for the Dodge Intrepid. Those that loved its sporty design and matching powerful engine, whose heavy-duty torque and quick acceleration make you first off the line, as well as its voluminous space for passengers and trunk cargo, wished Dodge would continue making the Intrepid. Those plagued by continual mechanical problems with the electrical system (driver's power windows), transmission failures, engine rebuilds due to sludge buildup (with the 2.7 V6), and problems with rear visibility are glad to see this car go.
The 2004 Dodge Intrepid did not change from 2003, since Dodge was preparing to replace it with its upcoming Magnum. Offered in SE, SXT, and ES trims, all with a V6 engine (ranging from 200 to 234 to 250-hp) and 4-speed automatic, the Intrepid was a speedy family car. Fitting five or six inside, depending on what types of seats you opted for, the once unique cab-forward design allowed for a bigger cab with more head, leg, and elbow room. Its suspension and longer wheelbase meant a firmer, smoother ride, though efforts to reduce road noise did not seem to be successful.
Owners loved how comfortable the Intrepid was, especially on long trips, and how easy it was to drive despite it being a full-size sedan. Many owners of the 2004 Intrepid complimented it on its sound system. Aside from its sludge problems, the 2.7 V6 was thought to be sluggish, particularly on hills, the opening to the huge trunk was inexplicably too small, and the rear deck height marred visibility.
