This car replaced a smaller vehicle, I felt the need for a bigger vehicle to keep my family safe from so many SUVs and Pick-up on the road. Size does matter.
Great car for long distance driving, comfortable, roomy, well thought out controls, smooth acceleration.
Great handling in snowy and windy conditions.
Challenging to park in tight spots.
Interior has lots of plastic trim. (Altough I found this to be a positive, since it is easier to clean up).
Built quality in this vehicle is on par with any vehicle in this price range.
I recommend the Intrepid ES, to anyone interested in a bigger, safer vehicle.
This car is an absolute pleasure to drive.
I would steer clear of the 2.7L engine!!
