Sleek design& feel.  TONS of cargo room.

Cons

I'd do with a few more MPG.

Why Don't They Still Make These, Again? — The only downside to this car I've ever encountered was that I had to put a new stereo in when I bought her. Otherwise, this is easily the best overall car I've ever owned. It's powerful enough to make it a very fun drive, yet I can't say I've gotten any speeding tickets that weren't my fault. There is an astronomical amount of cargo room (especially in the trunk). It's definitely the most comfortable car I've ever taken a long drive in. Sleek as hell to look at. Threw on some black/chrome rims on a deep blue paint job and she looks gorgeous. Gas mileage could be better, but I average about 21 mpg city and that's nothing to sneeze at. I would tell anyone shopping for an amazing used deal to NEVER pass up an Intrepid on the lot. Give it a drive at least. Above All: Dodge needs to put this model back into production.

Good Looking Car, But Always Something Wrong With It. — I like how it drives, but hate how it pretty much spends more time getting worked on then driven! Overall a pretty decent vehicle, was my first car and is my current car. Would not recommend this vehicle to a friend looking to buy a car...

Sporty fun in a big package

Cons

Good Car If Your Looking For A Daily Driver — I like this car because it is big and comfortable. However, it drives like a sports car. The handling is amazing for a car this size! I am used to bigger cars having all kinds of body roll but this just sets into the corners with no problem!

Great Overall Car — The car has been great for the last 8 years, only minor issues. Had to change the radiator and the shift cable. Other than that just routine maintenence. Added an aftermarket radio to allow for an aux input. It gets 20 mpg in town and about 26 highway.

Solid Basic Transportation. — This was an inexpensive car to purchase and has been very reliable. It was originally purchased for my daughter to take to college and she put most of the car's 138,000 miles on the odometer. After graduating she used the car in NYC for a year before returning it to mom and dad. It burns no oil and all features continue to function perfectly. 22 mpg overall with 27 on highway trips.

Car Fit For A Princess — i love the way it handles the curves, and the speed, i have got 2 speeding tickets in it since we got it, but it wasnt my fault the car likes to go and feels like your driving the speed limit. the way it hugs the curves, and turns on a dime is great!!!

This One's My Baby! — Been driving this one since it was brand new, and now have over 130,000 miles on it. Only had one repair needed so far, but it was a biggie. I wish Dodge still made these cars! Everything is so great: tons of room inside, huge trunk, plenty of power, good gas mileage, and it looks so good...
