Sadly, no longer an Intrepid owner.
I really thought I would keep this car forever. It was a good one. I thought the same thing about wife, but I was wrong. She left me about 2 weeks ago. She was having an affair with a married man, and I told her to get out. I gave her the car because it was a good car and paid for. I knew she couldn't afford to make payments, and that she needed a good car to haul our child around in. The car was a 2003 Trep SE with over 142,000 trouble free miles on it. I just put new tires on it last month. The rotors need to be turned, and it's getting water in the driver's side floor, but otherwise it runs and drives like new. I took good care of the car, and if we had stayed together, I wouldn't be surprised to see the car make it to 200,000 miles or more. I doubt it will last long at all now. I know my wife will drive the piss out of this car going back and forth to see that asshole she's been having sex with. I doubt she'll even pull the dipstick to check the oil until it's too late to save the engine. She gets oil changes when/if she thinks of it and has the money. She asked me for some gas money today. I told her sorry, can't help you. As you can imagine, the car is the least of my concerns right now, but thanks for letting me vent.
