2000 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 Liter from North America

Model year2000
Year of manufacture1999
First year of ownership2001
Most recent year of ownership2008
Engine and transmission 2.7 Liter Automatic
Most recent distance157000 miles

Faults:

Had to replace brake pads and rotors.

Had to get new tires twice. Once all 4, and the other time just the front 2 because of a small leak in the tires.

Front drivers side window comes out of its track every time it is rolled down.

Rubber seals around the doors to stop noise and keep dust and rain out, don't stay tight and fall down often.

The electric motor to open the trunk doesn't work, so you can't use the button on the remote or in the car to open the trunk. And sometimes the trunk won't open with the key either.

General Comments:

It has been a good car for us over all till recently.

We have had the car for 7 years now, and all we have done to it so far is new tires, brake pads and rotors, and a new battery. So not too much work had to be done to it besides the normal tune up stuff.

Summary:

Piece of junk... and I am being nice when I say this..

Faults:

Since I have had the car, many things have gone wrong.

First... has anyone had problems with the car when it is hot outside? My A.C. will not work, windows will not roll down, and the air bag light comes on and I hear a bell noise. When it is not so hot... everything works fine.

Next... the seals are shrinking. I had to make a cut in the lower part of the seals and put them back on so they would stay on. Now all the seals have a 2 inch gap in them.

I had to replace the engine also, costing me almost 4,000, and have had many brake and front end problems.

It is a shame that a car can ride so good, but be mechanically a piece of junk... Dodge should be ashamed to put out such a trashy car. They should be shunned by the automotive community and sanctioned by the government. The owner should also be compensated for all the expense we had to endure...

General Comments:

Dodge should be ashamed to put out such a trashy car.

Summary:

These cars should be recalled

Faults:

I loved this car till the timing chain broke and ruined the engine. I had just paid it off when it happened, and I always got the oil changed when it needed it, because the same thing happened to my cousin's 1999 Dodge Intrepid.

I'm severely upset to hear that so many others have had the same problem; Chrysler should not get away with this, it's just not right.

General Comments:

Junk.

Summary:

Good looking, but crap

Faults:

Shortly after purchasing the car, the remote would no longer open the trunk and neither would the button on the dash. Not long after that, the power door lock on the passenger rear door would make a horrendous sound when locking (finally disconnected the thing).

Then I found out about the 2.7 liter curse. I quickly changed to semi-synthetic oil and then full synthetic on the change after that. By then I was fed up with the car and proceeded to sell it. About a 2 months later I got a telephone call from the buyer. The engine had blown.

From all the experiences with that car, I would NEVER purchase another Chrysler made vehicle.
