Pros

it gets you from point a to point b.

Cons

avoid high miles and look for transmissions.

I Miss My Car. — I loved my car. It had minor stuff that needed to be done. Transmission liked to shift itself every now and then. This car got around KC and yes it was fun to drive. I miss it so much lol...

I Wish I Had The $$$ To Fix This Car Up. — I loved the styling and layout of this vehicle. The performance was great, great handling and acceleration. This car was a blast to drive. I bought it used with 20,000 miles on it and I finally wore it out when the odometer hit 190,000.00 I wish I could have afforded to rebuild the engine and transmission and restore the interior and the exterior. If I could have fixed it up I would still be driving it today.

Pros

Roomy.

Cons

Many technical issues.

25

A Bit Dated, But Fun To Run Around In. — Acceleration has improved since I put a new engine in, but braking and handling are below par. It has needed multiple repairs, but granted, it is getting old. I like the styling both of the exterior and interior, but it's not my favorite.

Pros

Good mid-sized car with good gas mileage

Cons

Somewhat unreliable and paint fades fast

25

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.
