Great blend of comfort, power, fuel economy, and handling. My Intrepid has proven to be quite reliable. The only major work I have had to do (beyond routine maintenance) is replace a leaking camshaft seal around 245,000 miles and replace a head gasket (and all other gaskets involved in the teardown) at 286,000 miles.

Great Car — The performance on this car is good for the size. It has a strong 3.3l in it that has no problem getting up to speed. Braking and handling are both Excellent for the size of the car. This car had a lot wrong with it when i bought it but i drove it for a long time before a water pump brought it down, After replacing the water pump i would say it would go another 50K with no problem. Interior has some cool features like the message center and a really comfy front seat the back seats are so nice you would fall a sleep every time. Exterior, Kinda ugly but could be made to look better, With the right color and a little wing and maybe some rims it could look really good. The gas mileage in this car is really good!! i get around 26-29 depending on how much city i go or how much hwy. maintenance isnt to bad pretty cheap on the parts and a lot of room to work on

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great car, Nothing really bad to say about it

Cons: nothing

A Nice Car — This car was really nice. Sure, the fact that there was some sort of electrical problem was a drag but it was still a nice car. It used to go 250 miles on only half a tank of gas. Acceleration wasn't that great, but it braked and handled well. This was by far a favorite to drive, despite some mishaps. Would still have this car if it hadn't been in an automobile wreck and it got totalled.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Loved the car.

Cons: Didn't like the electrical problem/

If Its Rust Free Theyrs Ok Would Try To Avoid Them — its the D.D. needs exhaust work front suspension and the fuel leak fixed and it would be a great car starting to rust out in the rear quarters but its a hoopty dont expect too much out of it its been broken into three times radio stolen twice and the car the last time almost the didnt get to finish popping the ignition cylinder out. would be ok on gas if it didnt leak

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: daily driver

Cons: they rust out and the front subframe bushings are 400 just for the parts

It's A Decent Family Car With A Kick Of Power — I love this car. It gets 20ish mpgs with a V6 while still having some giddy up when passing or merging on the freeway. The lines of the car are clean inside and out and the seven speaker stereo makes cruising in the car that much more enjoyable. The trunk is enormous while still being accesible. The only downsides are the width of the car and the tail lights are unnecessarily complicated to replace.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's roomy and still gets good gas mileage

Cons: Doesn't fit in parking garage spaces very well it kind of wide

It's Not That Great Of A Car — Performance - acceleration is terrible, braking is alright, and handling is alright Build Quality - It has needed some repairs. The valves tick and the engine was just flushed a couple months ago Appearance - The exterior has a lot of scratches on it but the interior is alright Cost Of Ownership - It has average gas mileage and an average routine maintenance Fun Factor - It's not made anymore by Dodge

Pros: Nothing

Cons: The valves tick, the acceleration sucks, it's tranny isn't very good, and there's a knocking sound coming from inside the intake
