So I'm cruising at about *** mph to a stabbing call in the 2004 Intrepid. It has 11k (+/-) miles on it. We are on a 5 mile bridge, when I come to the end and slow to 70, cuz the location is just off the end of the bridge. All of a sudden, "BANG, tick tick tick tick................"
And the ride Dies.

Damn Dodge, second 2004 in our fleet to do it in the last year


Luckily it wasn't mine, it was the Rookie Trainee's! I kicked him out of the driver's seat for this call, cuz I have no trust in Rookie drivers on hot calls


Luckily, stabbee lived (Slit throat) Stabber Incarcerated after lengthy search, and wanted out of Arkansas for Attempt Murder.

Sorry, but I gotta ask. Did you burn your lips?


All kidding aside, that's some pretty bad luck, you'd think Dodge would try to make them more rugged.

Glad to hear the stabbee was OK eventually, and the stabber was caught. Nice work!

I hate all dodge cars, they aren't reliable at all. The intrepid should have never been a police car. The Crown Vic is a much better car. At least the stabber was caught.

One more murderer off our streets

Our Dept stopped buying the CV in 2001 ("lowest Bid" deal)
In 2001 we bought Impalas, aka "Police Impersonators" POS's
Learned their lesson and are now trying the Intreps. Fast cars, just not as Durable as the CV's.
Up for a new car this year, and curious as to what the price diff between the alleged new RWD Dodge Police veh and the Ford CV is going to be <_<

Agreed. Those were great cop cars. Really, the crown vic police package is just a "police impersonator" now too. There was an article printed in popular mechanics a while back about cop cars, and how the crown vic police interceptor doesn't have the upgrades that previous cop cars did (significanlty stronger motor, etc.)

Reminded me of this quote:

It's got a cop motor: a 440 cubic inch plant. It's got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It's a model made before the catalytic converter so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is this the new Bluesmobile, or what?[/b]
