My 2002 Dodge Intrepid ES

by from Hensley, Arkansas on November 17, 2010

I bought my Intrepid brand new in 2002. I love it. I use it as a company car/personal car. It currently has over 148,000 mile's with no problems. The only thing I had to do was put freon in the AC.

The R/T's ROCK !

I've never liked any FWD car before the Intrepid. This car feels and handles much more like a RWD, which it was designed to be (both FWD & RWD versions were originally planned). The looks & style are fantastic, and still look modern - and even futuristic - today. The favorite part, for me, is this is the BEST handling sedan in it's class, period. She's large. She's heavy. She's not the fastest - though very respectable at 7.9 sec. for 0-60 - but, with the way she can hold curves, nobody beats me in the twisties... with a sedan. And, for long trips, you can't beat the ride, either !

Only get the 3.5L v-6 if getting a Intrepid.

by from Alma, WI USA on January 6, 2013

Most of the Intrepid's that had the 2.7L and 3.2L engine went to rental car fleets, that's why that Engine/Transmission has so many problems, If you can find one, get the Intrepid with the 3.5L engine...
Most of the Intrepid's that had the 2.7L and 3.2L engine went to rental car fleets, that's why that Engine/Transmission has so many problems, If you can find one, get the Intrepid with the 3.5L engine in the SXT or the R/T Models.

I got a 2002 in 2007 . So far this car is great the only thing that I've needed to do is replace the filters and it runs like new. I've had really bad cars in the past but this one is the best so far. but there is one problem with the car that I really hate it only has a cassette player:) come on who makes a 2002 and puts a cassette player. easy fix.

I own a 2002 3.5L V6 Dodge Intrepid ES. Purchased new . It has been very reliable. Great style, sporty, fun to drive. Handles the road great in both dry and wet/snow pavement. Takes the bumps - though you can feel them. Have had NO problems with it. Gas mileage was just as they said it would be 18 city, 26 hwy. -which is good considering the size. Huge trunk - can fit my bike in it. IF THEY STILL MADE IT I WOULD BUY A NEW ONE!!

This was the first car I ever bought, and throughout the two years I owned it, I put more money into than I paid for it. At first the shift cable snapped, then the emergency breaks went. Then I had to replace the tie rods, the struts, the battery (twice), the alternator, and then the transmission. Then I found out I had to replace the ball joints and the engine mount, and shortly after this, the engine died on me. It was such an awful and expensive experience. I used this car to commute to work and school, and this car left me stranded on the highway on multiple occasions. The air conditioning and the heat stopped working, and it definitely made it tough commuting in the winter and the summer. I should have gotten rid of it at the first sign of trouble, but purchasing a new car was not an option I could use at the time. I would not recommend this car to anyone. It's not a safe car and I'm surprised they're still being allowed on the road. Safe yourself the hassle and purchase a more reliable car.

Great Car!

I bought a used Intrepid SE with about 11,000 miles in January of 2003 and have had it since. Up until a year ago it was my commuter car and now is driven by my sons. It now (March '07) has 61,000 miles and has only recently needed front brakes and new tires. One minor repair under $70 of the blower resistor plus an air conditioner actuator replaced under warranty. The car is excellent on the highway, tracking faultlessly and getting over 30 mpg in sustained highway driving, about 25-26 in mixed driving. Lowest mileage has been about 18 mpg exclusively around town in very cold weather. The Intrepid is still as nice (or better) to drive than my new Dodge Magnum.
