Last updated Jun 14, 2007  

Photo of a 2002 Dodge Intrepid started life as SE (Da Ryda)


Bought the car in Nov 02 only really got it due to the price for the car. Man I am sure glad I made the purchase I love this car! I then found and the members there have helped me take the car to another level. I will always on an LH vehicle as long as they are available.

All 2nd gen Intrepids have aluminum motors with a 4 speed Automatic transaxle. Autostick was a added to this SE. Autostick is a driver-interactive transaxle shifter that lets you instantly switch from the convenience of an automatic to the performance of a manual transmission. This allows you to downshift before accelerating for greater passing power and engine braking control. It also allows you to upshift to 2nd or 3rd gear to maximize traction and fuel economy.

Factory Options

The base model and SE are really the same car. The SE name was started in 2000 and had SE badging on either the rear door (2000 & 2001) or trunk (2002-up). The easiest way to recognize this model is the front fascia that has no fog light openings. They feature a 2.7 liter DOHC 24 valve V6 engine. Base models 1998-1999 had 15” steel wheels with straight spoke hubcaps, later models upgraded to 16” steel wheels with a new bent spoke hubcap design used.
