    Dont even consider it, dodge has long history of unreliable cars and trucks, this ones no exception, I bought mine used with 30k miles before 60k miles problems with, ac, trans, engine, paint, headliner ect...headlight mounts broke, too much plastic used on everything, had some friends at dodge dealer, they hated this car, from sales to the mechanics, I got rid of this car after 1 year of ownership a long tome ago, stay away from this one and any other dodge/chrysler/plymouth unless its from the 1960s

  • And keeps on going... - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    I bought my 1994 base in 1998 with 87,000 km on it. The car now has 485,000 km. The a/c still works and so does pretty much everything else. There is a short in the rear defogger. I had a tranny problem in 2002 and had it rebuilt for $2,500. Still works great. Only thing I dont like is the lack of head room and Im only 6 feet and not the best mileage. Looking for a small 4 cyl but intend to keep the Intrepid. Oh, never had to change the exhaust system and I never get stuck in the snow and I only use all-season tires. Rear springs done about 2 years ago.

  • The plan was good. - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    Started having quite a few problems with it after about 100k miles - A/C would only work at certain times (never could figure it out), as well as quite a few other things. Poor paint job - it was actually tan, but would show up sort of purple at night. Kind of neat, but it started flaking off. Had cooling problems with it as well.

  • Got what I paid for - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    Bought this in July, 08 with 80K miles because it was seemed to be a good value. The climate control unit had some glitches I soon discovered and soon stopped working. Had a couple mechanics do some diagnosis and weve not come up with answers except its not the control head, min. $200 for a good diagnosis and at least another $150 to fix. I was doing a lot of mountain driving at the time, so when my water pump failed it quickly overheated and developed a head gasket leak, est. repair cost is $500 - $1500. Starter is failing now too, so its time for my clean, good looking 95K mile Intrepid to be turned in because the cost to repair it all is higher than the value of the car.

  • REGRET BUYING IT - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    I bought this car from a old guy. It looked Nice. The owner saTransmission, engine, everything under hood, and gas mileage id its good works fine. My dad said dont buy it. 2 months later my transmission broke. 10 days later my engine stopped working and my reverse never stopped. Every 10 days it was with my mechanic. Now the check engine light is always on. It runs like a piece of junk. I tried clunking it but wasnt excepted. Dont buy it

  • It just wont die! - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    I bought this in 2000 with just over 100K on it. Only external flaws were light hail damage and faded paint where a cell phone antenna used to be. Eventually, the faded spot spread from the elements, but no lower body rust at all. Living in Minnesota with the ice and salt on roads in winter, its held up well. Ive put mostly short trips on it, and it always starts and runs, except once. Battery was old and died. Only had that replaced, one water pump and one starter in 9 years. Tires of course. For having been over 100K when I bought it, 9 years of driving and only put that much into it is great! Idle is rough sometimes now, so may need to have it looked at, but cant complain.

  • Generally good - 1994 Dodge Intrepid
    By -

    Our Intrepid has generally been reliable and fun. Pretty roomy. We live in the far north and yet, it has done well so far. I wish its electronics were more reliable and its headlights proper.

    My Intrepid has 319,000km or 198,000 miles on the original drive train. Does not use oil between changes and still averages 10 litres /100km or almost 30mpg. Easy to work on and the dealer has been very helpful with the few problems encountered. Original owner.
