1999 Dodge Intrepid SE 2.7 DOHC from North America
Stylin, reliable, and been very good to me
When I first bought it a coolant leak, but replaced under warranty. After I did the brakes at 65000 I noticed a battery cable was worn through due to the steering arm. I couldn't tell if it was a manufacturing problem or if the installer of my amp let the wire fall. Had small problems, but after I had the alarm and stereo put in. they were mostly electrical. if you get work done to one of these make sure you get a warranty on the work. I bought an extended warranty till 75,000 miles from the dealer, but the small print said $100 co pay for every visit and most parts aren't covered after 30000-50000 miles because they are considered wear and tear. the warranty costed $1500 and I think I never got to use it. Luckily not a lot went wrong. the dodge emblem on the hood came off while washing it at 60000. transmission leak, but fixed after I changed the gasket. oil leak, but it was due to a stripped bolt. the aluminum oil pan strips out if you tighten the bolt too much.
I think it was a great car for the price. I have to warn everyone about the small print on the warranties. have a lawyer look it over first!!!j/k. I still have a couple years to pay on it so I hope it lasts. keep the car stock because you will have electrical probs. could be faster, but it has a small engine for such a big car. big big roomy car!!! the trunk almsost seems sound proof. I like it loud and only for me to hear not the whole world. plus cops never think its 420 in this car and tinted windows help a lot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

In the interest of saving you a ton of grief in the future, LOSE THAT CAR IMMEDIATELY the 2.7 engine is complete junk and rarely lasts more than 100,000. The engine gets so plugged with sludge then eventually dies. I've lost count how many of these cars I've seen blowing smoke out the tail pipe.
