2001 Dodge Intrepid SE 3.2L from North America
Good until warranty runs out, then trade it
The CD player/Radio broke within the first month after we bought it.
Unfortunately we didn't purchase the extended warranty and we've been having some problems. After taking it to several garages, we took it to the dealer and they told us we needed to replace the spark plugs and clean the fuel system. We had just changed the spark plugs 6 months ago and had the fuel system cleaned 2 days before we took it into the dealer. They finally told us that 2 of the fuel injectors were leaking and that they recommended that we replace all 6 because the others will more than likely go bad each one costs $70.80 for the part, plus another $16 for the o-rings, this doesn't include labor, plus now the spark plugs we just replaced are fouled out and we will have to replace all 6 of them as well. Needless to say we're not real happy with the performance of this car. How can a 4 year old car be falling apart so quickly? We just traded in a Ford Windstar that had 95,000 miles on it and it ran like a charm.
The decal on the hood of our Dodge even fell off after we had the car 6 months.
The car is roomy and very comfortable on long trips. When it drives right, it's a joy to drive, but it seems to me that it just isn't made well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
