I am a firm supporter of Chrysler and Dodge, and will probably always buy Dodges after owning this car. I recently was involved in an accident which ruined my Neon, and was going to switch over to a Jeep Cherokee, but my dealership talked me into trying out an Intrepid. The car accelerates fairly well for a sedan, the only other car that size I've seen jump like an intrepid is a Mercury Sable; and that was modified. With pretty much the entire car at your fingertips, it is a very easy car to get used to. This car has a nice top end cruise. My governor kicks in at around 115mph, and at those speeds you can tell theres plenty of horses and rpms still waiting to be unleashed. Barring an unfortunate incident with local law enforcement the Intrepid makes the trip along the 294 from Indiana through Illinois and into Wisconsin last about 35-40 minutes. My Intrepid has a set of racing tires with 14 inches of tire to the asphalt, which I've noticed imroves the handling considerably, I replaced the stock tape deck with a Sony Xplod CD deck and replaced all speakers with Sony Xplod 3-way speakers. I've also rigged rope lighting around my back seats and have a 15" neon bar which beats with my stereo. all total for the mods, around 1000$. Except for the tires, all also completely cosmetic. This car had a decent system stock, just not what I was looking for. The 200 Intrepid is touted as a family sedan, but with a minimal amount of effort and money, can become a rather decent vehicle for the single guy too. With sleek looks and a good amount of power, I would recommend this car to my friends.
