I have a base model 2000 Dodge Intrepid with 93,000 miles on it. No major problems with it. The car has been very reliable and I am well pleased with it. I hope to drive it another 20 or 30 thousand miles.
As an Arkansan I am glad you vacationed in the Ozarks and had a good time. I also have a 300 M with a 3.5 engine. I can tell a significant difference between the 3.5 in the 300 M and 2.7 in the Intrepid when I travel in the Ozarks.

a weird looking color, which seems to change appearance depending on the lighting conditions. It almost looks like mine, steel blue, under certain lights. It was offered, I think, in the 2002-2003 model years. The butane blue is a nice color......but I guess I am bias because I really like the steel blue on the Trep. If I can figure out how to post a pic of mine on this site, I will since I finally got a digital camera.

if you have trouble posting your pic, you can email it to me if you want, and I'll post it for you. I have a website that I can upload it to.

steel blue metallic color on the Trep, which was discontinued in the 2003 model year.

Did you buy a bra for the hood area of your Trep. I am thinking of buying one for the front part of the hood but dont know which one to buy. Even with only 14,000 miles on the car the hood is starting to show some chips.
Oct 12, 2004 (5:37 am)
I never really went for the bra look. I prefer my cars to be liberated and just let 'em hang out for all the world to see!
And I have the stone chips to prove it, although for having 97,000 miles, I don't think it looks too bad.

There is an article on AOL's site about the 2006 Dodge Charger, scheduled to debut in Spring '05. According to the article, the Charger was introduced in 1966 with a 426 Cubic inch HEMI, one of the fastest street legal engines ever sold. Expect a 6.1 L HEMI engine in the new Charger to be available in the future. Gee, maybe the 6.1 L will fit under my Intrepid's hood???????????

My 2000 Intrepid ES interior lights flicker on and off while driving and they'll sometimes come on and stay on even after the car is locked with my remote as I walk away. Anybody else heard of this??? I don't want to pay dealer 100/hr to spend all day trying to find something!

I would be interested if anyone has changed spark plugs in their car. I have a 2.7 engine. Presume the coils have to be removed but am not sure what else is needed to be done.
Thanks in advance.
In response to #2555....check all the door switches.

at 51,000 miles, but since the mechanic did it, I don't know what all was involved. I'm around 97,000 now. I'm kinda curious myself, as to how hard it is to change them. Looks to me like all you have to do is remove each individual coil pack, but then I've also heard that it's easy to damage the coils, so I dunno if it's something I should try myself.
As for interior lights flickering, my '00 will occasionally do a flicker of both the interior and outside lights. It happens when the electric cooling fan kicks on. As for the lights staying on after you turn off the car and lock the doors, I dunno. Now before I had the Viper put in my Intrepid, it used to have a delay feature. If you turned off the car before you turned off the headlights, the lights would stay on for a few seconds, before finally going off. If you turned off the headlights before killing the ignition, everything just stayed off. Regardless of that though, the Viper turns everything off immediately when I arm it.
