Cons

Somewhat unreliable and paint fades fast

96' Intrepid — Lets see, i like and hate my car at the same time. Its got great pickup and rides smooth on the highway. Great interior terrible exterior. Gets about 25 mpg on the highway but only 14 in the city. The only fun thing about driving it is not knowing if my engine will fall out....literally.

Pros

Good looks; good space;

Cons

interior could be better; some parts are hard to get too;

Not Active

Looks Good, Performance Sux Ass. — Handling is good; exterior is good; i wish that interior was leather; the factory paint sux, it ships fast; parts rust very fast, including struts, rotor plate cover, doors, etc; the motor and transmission still doing good; car has some performance problems because of the high mileage and age.

Good Comfortable Wheels — I owned this car for two years, and it served me well for them. It was comfortable, had decent performance, handled well, but lacked alot of character.

Great Car. Good Performance, Considering Its Age. Lots Of Interior And Trunk Space. — This is a really good car. Good acceleration, considering its age and weight. It's registered 120 and could probably hit it if it didn't have the governor at 106. It has good handling for a big sedan. Plenty of room on the inside and lots of trunk space. Has steering wheel mounted cruise control. Does not have anti-lock brakes and has drum brakes in the back.
