If it's got that milage but 4 previous owners< I'd keep looking at other options. Something is probably very wrong with it. If taken care of and if the water pump is replaced with the updated design, the 2.7 isnt really as bad as people make it out to be. Mine is still going very strong at 121k miles minus weeping valve seals. It's only been off the road a few times because it needed to have some old parts replaced but it wasn't the safest to drive so I didn't. Just make sure the maintenance is never late and you'll be golden. I think there's a guy on here that drove his 2.7 over 500k miles on the original drivetrain.Hi all, I'm looking to purchase my first ever car and one of the contenders is a 1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7 V6. Now as you all are well aware that and the 2000 model seem to have quite an issue with the engin regarding oil sludge of sorts. The vehicle seems to have 4 pervious owners and has clocked in 95,778 miles. It is being sold for $2,600, but I was thinking of trying to talk them down a bit. What are y'all's opinions on the purchase, as well as what are some tips for maintaining this vehicle. I think I recall reaidng an oil change at every 3k miles using Mobil1 synthetic 10w-30 oil.
