Cons

Reliability

Review Title? — While it lasted, it was a great car. Had a good balance between performance and driveability for family life. It got decent gas mileage and wasn't too expensive. The downfall though was it's reliability. We had several problems with it and it is known for having a myriad of engine problems.

If You Get The Chance, Buy One — Likes +Performance +Reliability +Handling +Styling Dislikes -Poor turning circle The performance of the 2.7l engine is fantastic, easily keeping up with Interstate traffic, and was extremely reliable, bringing in 1,500 miles/week with no failures, breakdowns and always got you there in great comfort!

Pros

It's a joy to drive. Very comfortable, fits me like a glove.  Handles beautifully.  I drive a twisting and curvy road on a regular basis and this car makes the trip a pleasure.  It goes well in the snow too!  Garage kept and clear coat finish still has bright shine!

Cons

Generally gets a good rating overall.  It has met many demands over the years.  The tire and wheel design are probably the biggest drawback.  The wheel must be cleaned and sealed on a regular basis, otherwise the tires will leak and go flat.  Tender sidewalls on the tires.  Unfortunately, they do not make the original yellow letter tires that were designed for this car.

Love That Car! — The car is dependable, great to drive, and despite many road miles put upon it (213,000 miles) it still performs well. The Nascar styling is an "eye catcher" for those diehard fans. Good gas mileage for a full size car. Maintenance cost is reasonable. Spacious interior for full sized or large adult passengers. Seat belts are adjustable and very comfortable. Leather trim is of high quality and all seams are intact. The dash and interior door trim is solid and durable. Generous trunk space and plenty of storage in the doors and center console. There are heat/air conditioning vents on the console that supply the rear passengers directly, which is a nice feature. For a v6, the car has plenty of power to navigate quickly in high demand traffic conditions. The passing gear will leave everyone in the dust!

Smooth — This vehicle was a great vehicle. It ran great and drove smooth. It was very nice looking and clean. It was really roomy and comfortable to drive. There was a lot of storage space. Overall just a great vehicle to have. It used to be an undercover police car and had a police interceptor package in it. So this was kind of fast!!

Good Car. — Loved the looks of the intrepid but for me it has become a problem getting in and out of it because of my age. Very comfortable car and very good at gas. Very stable at high speed. Great trunk space.

Pros

Nice interior, good radio, reliable.

Cons

Less than perfect track record, not so sensitive accelerator, needs some paint detailing on the front (my dad, not me).

45

Not A Bad Machine — The acceleration is not all that sensitive, but in Houston area who has room to go that fast anyway? It has had a few technical issues in the past (transmission, brakes, AC, Oil leak, etc.) but it's pretty reliable regardless. I just had a new radio installed which has all the bells and whistles (Aux. port for ipod, HD radio, blue-neon-backlit buttons, concealed CD player) so that really enhances the experience. The interior is incredibly comfortable, the absence of leather always helps. Brakes are... well... brakes, what can I say, they work so who cares? All in all, I could do a LOT worse for a first car...a LOT worse!

transmission (long-term), rear-door-entry for tall persons.

Great All Round Sedan — A great, versatile all round sedan. Decently built, decent performance. not much torque on the low end, but great passing and highway power available on demand from the 3.5 magnum V6. Using the available AutoStick semi-automatic Transmission is fun. Maneuverability is fantastic, the car corners amazingly due to its cab-forward architecture. The EVIC over head computer competently evaluates the trip and vehicle performance while reminding you of required service intervals. The interior cabin is simple yet refined and very spacious. Low points include long-term transmission durability.. that's about it, in my opinion.

Has been a good car for 100k miles, with hardly any maintenance.

Cons

Burns oil now at 175K.  A/C leak.  Wears tires even after an alignment. Hard to work on.

Good For The Price — I bought this car four years ago and drove it for with no problems until just recently. It did all that I wanted it to. For the last 40K I've been adding about a quart of oil for every 1000 miles. I have a check engine light on which is caused by two evap leaks (one behind the motor and the other one is above the gas tank). The a/c stopped working shortly after I bought it. I added some 134a but it didn't last very long. My problem with it now is that is leaks anti freeze from the water pump weep passage and I'm about to change the water pump because I believe that to be the issue.
