You are in the Dodge Intrepid
What is this discussion about?
Dodge Intrepid, Sedan
#2474 of 3457 2000 Dodge Intrepid
Aug 22, 2004 (6:20 am)
I bought a "pre-owned" certified 2000 'Trep with 44,00 miles on it. It has some of the power-train warranty left on it. I also paid an additional $1500 for the car care plus to cover everything else, Only one minor problem was a fuel tank sensor that was going "wacky" . The dealer replaced it.The engine is the 2.7. I am going to keep on top of the oil changes and fluid checks. It's a nice car for going to work.

I noticed on some Intrepids they are listed as Certified Pre Owned and some aren't whats the difference in the two? or does Chrysler provide an extra set of coverage to select Intrepids?
#2476 of 3457 Just a guess here...

but I think "Certified", means that they gave the car a more thorough inspection, it was a nicer, cleaner, lower-mileage car to begin with, and they give it a better warranty than an "ordinary" used car. They also give it a higher price tag.

I wonder if its specific from Dealer to Dealer, I purchased a used 2004 Intrepid from a five star Dodge Dealership however none of the Dealers Intrepids were Certified, I should have asked, i'm still comfortable with the factory warranty and the 7/70 protection.

How are those Yokohama Avid's doing. How many miles on them now.
#2479 of 3457 Lemme think a sec...

the car has about 96,000 miles on it now. I think I had those Yokos put on around the 77K mark? I know it was around Feb or March of 2003, so that sounds about right. So far so good!
#2480 of 3457 2004 Intrepid Pricing

Does anyone know if Dodge is offering incentives on 2004 Intrepids, if so does anyone know the dates they are or were effective, i didnt see anything on the dodge.com site.
#2481 of 3457 According to the Edmund's info...

there's $4000 cash back, but that incentive ends today, 8/31/04. I'm sure they'll come up with something else though, to move the leftovers.
There's also a $500 customer bonus cash to active military/reserve personnel and their immediate families living in the same household, but you have to finance through Chrysler.
They're not listing any low-APR financing, but I think you could probably get about 3.5-4% nowadays through just about any credit union.

I noticed in the Car Connection article that DC has been petitioned by the center for auto safety on the 2.7L Engines from 1998 to 2002, i'm curious why they left out 2003-2004 engines? wouldn't these engines be at risk? or are the problems fixed on the newer models?
