Hi from a recent owner of a Dodge Intrepid 2.7 (currently, and yes, I know) ES.
About the car -
Comfortable, power, most things, Autostick.
Dislikes - 2.7 engine, musty smell from air con system.
The story behind the car - it blew an engine and was bought for an undisclosed sum by my wife's parents who promptly paid more than the book value of the car to have another 2.7 fitted. They then gave the car to my wife. 2500 miles later the timing tensioner on the replacement lump went goodbye and the vehicle went back to the garage (Who had thoughtfully put a 12 months parts and labor wty on the used engine) a month later and it's headed back with a nice knock from the top end. (They gave a warranty, they can't complain when I use it) Not sure on the oil change prices since it's yet to make it as far as one. (I had them change the oil with the timing gear)
Since owning it (4 months and counting) we've changed 1 tire, have another to change, upgraded the radio to a DVD head unit, replaced the Power steering pump and an O2 sensor, replaced the rear rotors and pads also fitted all new dash bulbs (gauges and heater controls) and both sun visor clips. Also rewired the trunk release and light. Next on the books is an OTIS install (today probably) along with the illuminated sun visors, auto dip mirror etc.
