2000 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 from North America
Do not buy it!!!
I have a BIG problems with my engine- exactly the same ones that all the other people have who owns 2000 intrepid. Timing chain needs to be changed and I have oil leaks. and engine has bad sound if rpm goes over 2200 rpm.
This car is really comfortable and nice looking and it has enough power for 2.7 engine, but engine is not reliable and after 80 000 this car needs to get timing chain changed and a lots of other parts.
I think that Dodge should fix all these problems (for free of charge/ or give a discount on certain parts) that majority of people have with this car, because as we can see everybody have exactly same problems with this car after 70000/80000 miles and that shows us that it's not our fault, but somebody's else and why we have to pay for it???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Cars are not built to last forever - its called fair wear and tear... stuff breaks...a NEW car can breakdown just after you drive it off the lot...
80,000 is a long time to run an engine, serpentine belts will need changing after 80,000; so too timing belts and chains..
What is it with people complaining about a car that has significant mileage on the clock...
IT'S NOT BRAND NEW; expect stuff to need fixing..

You are wrong - when so many people have the VERY SAME PROBLEM with the same vehicle...it's a problem with the vehicle not the people... the engine should last for more than 70,000 miles. Cars do not run forever - and normal wear and tear is not a blown up engine after about 70,000 miles. They know it's a problem with the engine, mechanics know it's a problem with the engine, after doing some research you should too.
