3.5 HO SXT. bought it with 103k, so far so good. don't put cheap gas in this car, triggers the check engine light and temporarly makes the tranny jerkish!! also don't mix different types of gas also triggers the check engine light. Exxon plus. i owned the 1999 2.7L 2 years ago sludge caused the engine to seize at 127k. avoid the 2.7L LO.the 3.5 is very powerful, but noisy when pushed. sporty handling. sporty suspension.

I bought my 04 Intrepid in 2006 with 58,000 miles on odometer. It is a reliable car that i've ever owned. In only 4 years, I've put 110,000 more miles on the odometer without any problems, except the routine maintenance. However, check the coolant outlet housing for leakage. I replace once in 2008 and change the Dex-Cool to regular greenish coolant. I like the performance and styling of this car, and it is still my good buddy on the roads everyday....

I have owned 4 new Intrepids (1996,1998,2000,& 2004) and have put 100,000 trouble free miles on each. They are large, good riding and handling vehicles. I have had both large and small v6 engines. The small v6 provided 29 mpg on highway and 23 mpg in town.. I past on each vehicle to other relatives who put an additional 100,000 trouble free miles as well, only changing oil, brake pads and tires.

Our Intrepid treated us very well, with only standard maint. it kept us going as our family grew we had no need to buy a different car. with the extremely large truck, large back seat and roomy front seats it is the best of both luxury and practicality. The only gripe we ever had was the cup holders are in a bad location and very close together and there are none for the back seat. in my book if the worst you can say about a car is it's cup holders then its a very good car!!!!

i agree with someone who previously mentioned putting el cheapo gas in this vehicle might trigger the check engine light and mess with the tranny a little. when i got this car all i have done is give it oil changes and put 93 gas in it. just for the heck of it i replaced the transmission fluid. 140k + miles and still going strong!

These are great handling cars as long as you maintain them. I have a 2.7L engine which I knew had problems when I bought it. I have used Mobil 1 since I got it. The 2.7 has a known slug problem and many fail early (HAVE A MECHANIC CHECK ANY PROSPECTIVE PURSCHAE). I do love the car though and have had few problems over 100K miles.

I have owned three dodge intrepids now ranging from 1997 to 2004. I absolutely love these cars for their sleek look, extremely comfortable interior and superior handling of the road. These are big cars, but also have a lot to offer. There are many options as far as interior goes as well as with the motor. The 3.5 engine is recommended for performance but the 2.7 for economy. There are some known problems with these vehicles, but no more than other mopar products. Overall, it is an awsome car and they look great!
