Piece of crap Chrysler; it dies randomly, it overheats, and it was making like 15 mpg. I would definitely wouldn't buy another Chrysler ever (maybe a Jeep).

General Comments:

It's not a typo... the car has 343,000 miles and is still running and surviving my 18 year old daughter to whom I passed the car to (nice safe vehicle for your child).

Two repairs of less than $500 over its life-time(aside from consumables). Incredible.

No better large car for its price.

Cavernous trunk.

Large back seat for three car seats abreast of three tall kids.

Can be thrown around exit ramps.

22 mpg overall.

It still looks good both in design and wear and tear.

Everything works.

I do not doubt you at all. The 3.2 engine is amazing. The body of these cars also hold up good. I own a 2001 Intrepid with the same motor and the car has been near flawless. Other than the normal wear and tear/oil/tires etc. I have never put any other work into this car. However, now approaching 200,000 miles, I've noticed the A/C is not blowing as cold as it normally should. It also seems that my brakes are wearing a little fast. I'm not going to complain though, It seems minor. I will definitely buy another Dodge after this one. I have noticed that many people have had issues with the 2.7 engine. I do feel for those people, but it just goes to show that doing research is crucial before purchasing a vehicle. I do however, Love My Intrepid and will run it until it won't run anymore:-) Thanks for the review!

Previous carChrysler 92 NISSAN MAXIMA GXE

Summary:

Oh yeah, I am putting on a new engine. Will cost = $2500. Too legit to quit

Faults:

1. The car stopped on the highway. Diagnostic = The internal computer failed. I replaced it for $300. After that the car was running like new.

2. The car just stopped on my way home, found water and milky stuff on oil stick (Blown head gasket without any sign). Too late to fix, needs new engine.

General Comments:

The car is just beautiful, roomy interior, the body is shaped so well like some 2007 or 2008 cars, many people think the car is a 2007 or something. I towed a Uhaul trailer from Michigan to Delaware with this car. it is also easy to upgrade things like stereo e.t.c, I have good stereo on this car. It has a remote starter. Power heated leather seats. It can take up to 20' rims on it. Mine are only 19' chromes but they look stunning.

Overall the car is: COMFORTABLE! COMFORTABLE! COMFORTABLE!

Summary:

Luxury and performance, a very exciting car

Faults:

Had minor air conditioning work done.

General Comments:

The 3.2 Liter engine puts out some serious power. When this thing revs up it sounds like a race-car. When stopping at excessive speeds however, the brakes can't handle it and overheat badly. I love this car and always look forward to driving it.

Summary:

This is a very nice car which I would recommend to anyone

Faults:

I have had really good luck with this car, experiencing only minor mechanical problems.

The headlight gasket pulls away from the light making for a poor appearance, but no functional problems.

The side door weather seals don't fit tightly, making for an excessive amount of noise at highway speeds.

The check engine warning light came on when the gas cap was not tightly screwed on, leaving me with a bit of a panic until a mechanic friend put the computer analyzer on and found the problem. There is no warning in the owner's manual about this type of thing.

The car has had one recall to replace one of the seat bolts on the driver's side. I did not have any problems before or after the work was done, so I can't comment on the supposed problem.

The front brakes went at 40,000 miles. After talking to several mechanics, I have learned that this car puts a higher than average stopping stress on the front disk brakes, so that they wear out before the rear brakes do. My mechanic tells me that this is at about a two to one ratio. The dealer gave me two different verdicts on the brakes during two different visits. I finally got the real story from an independent mechanic when I took the car in for an inspection.

Finally, the power door lock actuator on the rear passenger side quit right after the warranty ran out. I had to make two trips to the dealer's to get it fixed properly. The first time they left the child lock in place so that anyone sitting in that seat could not unlock the door, and the child lock could not be deactivated once the door had been unlocked from the driver's position. The second visit took about 1/2 hour to get it fixed.

General Comments:

Overall, this car has been extremely comfortable. It drives nicely and has enough power to pass most cars under normal conditions. It also holds the road well, even in wet conditions. The front wheel drive makes it very easy to correct for road conditions (read snow, ice, and wind), and to steer the car generally. The leather seats are very comfortable and not too hot in summer or cold in winter.

One very nice feature is the door panel behind the back seat fold down armrest that allows items to pass through from the trunk. This has permitted me to carry boards from the lumber yard, and to access small items in the trunk while on the road.

Couple of comments:

On any car, if you leave the gas cap loose, it will trip the check engine light.

And second, You went back to the dealer to have them flip the switch to un-lock the child lock?? You could have done this yourself in 3 seconds flat. On top of it all, you waited 30 min? Well, what ever floats your boat.
