1999 Dodge Intrepid Base 2.7L from North America
I would not buy another Dodge
Replaced engine at 102,000 miles.
Replaced the fuel pump at 45,000 miles while stranded in Lymon, Colorado.
Sensor problems, replaced.
This is a comfortable car to take a trip in, but would only do so by having a mechanic check over the engine unless the car was new.
I cannot trade the vehicle in my area because the 2.7 liter engine is known as a "bad engine" and nobody will sell the vehicle.
I have been waiting for a recall of the engines, but apparently paying $5,000 to get a rebuilt engine in countless cars isn't enough to get a recall.
This car is nice looking, roomy and comfortable, but the engine is the main fault of this particular year.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This 99 Dodge Intrepid I bought 5 weeks ago is pure unadulterated crap. Why at 80000 miles do I need to replace the 2.7 liter engine. I can't even sell the car because as one person said, the carlots won't be bothered with it, and people are wise to this particular engine. They haven't even bothered to come with an engine recall for these cars. This is totally unbelievable. I'm outraged.
