1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 liter from North America
I would not recommend buying this type of car
The back drivers window will only roll down once in awhile. The front driver's window had to be totally replaced. It kept rolling up off track until it finally shattered.
The rotors and brakes have been the most troublesome problem. It caused the brakes to go out suddenly, and the tires to go bald quickly. It forced us to have to put up with a very bad wobble from the tire and the steering wheel for the longest time until we could afford to fix it. Thank goodness we did not have to totally replace the rotors because the parts are extremely expensive.
One of the ignition coils went bad. We replaced it, but the problem was not fixed completely because it caused the corresponding cylinder to become poor. And I am sure that is due to the fact that the check engine light took so long to come on before we new that the coil had ruined.
The transmission seems to shift hard, but after getting it checked out, they found nothing to be wrong.
The exhaust smokes (which may be as a result of the ignition coil).
It's hard to clean the front and back windshields because they are so big.
I do find some aspects of the Intrepid to be satisfying. It has a very sporty look to it. The lights are bright and work well. The front seats, back seats, and trunk are all very spacious. The air, heater, and stereo works extremely good. And it has decent power when working properly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
