2000 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.2L from North America
Big-time bang for the buck in a performance oriented touring sedan
Transmission Speed Sensor
(Do it yourself fix under $20)
Transmission Cooler Lines
(Caused by rock puncture)
Right wheel hub
(replaced both front hubs for $240)
We drive this car hard and autocross it regularly as well as take it track days. We modified the exhaust and intake and the result was a little more power, better sound, and better gas mileage. All easy and cheap mods.
It handles well for a big luxury car (ours is loaded with power leather seats, etc). Its fun to drive and has decent power. The autostick gives a euro touring sedan feel. Weaknesses are poor OEM tires and struts. The tires we fixed with 245 kumho's, but their really isn't a strut option in the aftermarket.
Cars gets 25mpg on the highway. Runs the 1/4 in 15.90 and surprises people on the road course or autocross. All with great comfort and trunk space. And the car is totally affordable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Same problem 1999 Dodge Intrepid, 53,000 miles, regular oil changes, engine died due to sludge. Absolutely no warning. I can say Daimler Chrysler refuses to cover this defect, because the customer service representatives told me they have the authority to say so.
