Summary:

Very nice! Lots of room, and people say I look good driving it

Faults:

So far nothing wrong with the car, I think this is a great car! From what I have heard, it's a bad car, but I think I'm lucky. I love this car and will only trade it for a nice Honda CRX, but that will be later!

General Comments:

This car looks great! Handles great! And I have nothing bad to say about it! I will keep it forever! If you ask me if I ever need another car, I'll get the same one again!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Still better than any Hyundai or Kia out there

Faults:

-Replaced front left wheel bearing and hub assembly.

-Replaced steering rack (3rd time it's been replaced throughout it's lifetime) buy a delco rack because they have a lifetime warranty so whenever the rack goes... you get a new one for free :)

-Parked the car for 3 months and suddenly the front brakes were no good.. $180 new rotors and pads

-Transmission sometimes slips/shudders into overdrive.

General Comments:

-This car has over 250,000 kilometres on it... original motor, original transmission. Body is in great condition (It was in Florida every winter until I bought it.)

-It is a great highway car as it cruises along quickly and smoothly with minimal road or wind noise.

-great handling in the corners

-stops on a dime

-a/c still works great

-always starts

-If you can find an Intrepid that seems to have been well taken care of, and drives great (I stress that you give it a good test drive... get it running through all the gears and pay close attention to any steering flaws.) Buy It!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What is the point of saying it's better than a Kia or Hyundai? Is that just a random thing you decided to throw in there? Because you didn't give any reason as to how it's better.
