2000 Dodge Intrepid Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
A high-performance R/T (road/track) model joins the Intrepid lineup early in calendar-year 2000 as the major change for the Intrepid, a front-drive sedan that is part of the same family as the Chrysler Concorde, LHS and 300M.

Special hardware on the R/T includes a 242-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, 17-inch aluminum wheels and tires, and unique interior trim with R/T logos. It will be available in red, silver, slate and white exterior colors. With the R/T, Dodge is revving up for entering the NASCAR stock car racing series in 2001, using the Intrepid’s design as the basis.

Intrepid and its Chrysler cousins were redesigned for the 1998 model year and are expected to continue in their present design through the 2002 model year.

Exterior
Like its Chrysler cousins, the boldly styled Intrepid turns a lot more heads than do other full-size cars. The cab-forward design pioneered by Chrysler pushes the wheels to the ends of the car, and the low nose and high tail give it a sleek, aerodynamic shape with a drag coefficient of .30, better than some sports cars.

The Intrepid is nearly 204 inches long and rides on a 113-inch wheelbase.

Interior
Five-passenger seating is standard, but an optional front bench seat gives the base model room for six. The ES and R/T are available only with front buckets. All doors open wide enough for easy entry and exit, and the spacious Intrepid accommodates taller people in the front and rear. At 18.4 cubic feet, the trunk provides amp...

The Intrepid is nearly 204 inches long and rides on a 113-inch wheelbase.

Interior
Five-passenger seating is standard, but an optional front bench seat gives the base model room for six. The ES and R/T are available only with front buckets. All doors open wide enough for easy entry and exit, and the spacious Intrepid accommodates taller people in the front and rear. At 18.4 cubic feet, the trunk provides ample cargo room, though the high liftover makes loading heavy items a chore. The ES has a split, folding rear seatback, and the base and R/T models have a fixed rear seatback.

One major difference from Dodge’s styling compared to the similar Chrysler models: The Intrepid has a much larger rear window, giving the driver a better view for parking and changing lanes.

Under the Hood
Both the base and ES models now come with a standard 2.7-liter V-6 that generates 202 horsepower. A 3.2-liter V-6 with 225 horsepower is optional on the ES this year instead of standard. The 242-horsepower 3.5 liter engine is exclusive to the R/T. All models come with a four-speed automatic transmission. On the ES and R/T, the transmission adds the Autostick feature, which allows manual shifting by tipping the shift lever left or right.

Performance
Alluring styling, a spacious interior and capable performance make the Intrepid an attractive proposition. Those who demand strong acceleration in a big sedan will be happier with the 3.2-liter V-6 available in the ES (and happier still with the 3.5-liter in the R/T). The 2.7-liter engine has to work pretty hard to deliver adequate performance.

Solid and Safe Car

by TheMusicians from St Paul, MN on May 12, 2017

Drove this car for 90,000 miles. I got it at 114,000 and now at 204,000 I am replacing it due to front suspension issues. It was a solid car, lots of power (great acceleration onto highway), and could... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
