95 Intrepid 3.3l Bought it 1 yr old w/18000 miles and now has 253,000. Have done the usual front end work once like ball joints and tie rods and an alternator @ 225K and starter @ 190K. Body is still in excellent shape. Great experience with this car.

I've had my '96 Chrysler Intrepid for almost a year. Huge car, cheap, fast, beautiful, even good on gas. But don't buy one!

The suspension is poorly designed, causing stress on many important parts of the car. The Inner Left TIE ROD broke loose when going around a corner, making it almost impossible to steer.

The TRANSMISSION has a heavy 2 to 1 downshift slip.

My new front tires went bare on the outside edges (no alignment issues) within 3 1/2 months. What??

On the other hand the car has been well taken care of, has run strong (3.3L) and been cheap to operate AND made it across Canada and back!! But the check engine light has been on ever since...

I got a 94 Intrepid and I love it. I bought it for 400 and it was a piece of crap, now I'm putting some work into it. It gets up, steers well, and can fit about 6 people. It is at 168K and I recently put 2K into it due to some major front end issues. The car is cheap to maintain but requires TLC. Gas mileage is also great on this car. If this one fails, I'll buy another in a heartbeat.

I just bought a beautiful 1996 3.3 V6 4 dr Intrepid at auction for 850 dollars, and was amazed how nicely it handled and how cheap on gas it was.

Although I was expecting to do some work to my auction baby, I was shocked how much, but I know it will be a good car.

Although I am curious to know if anyone else has stalling issues with theirs, and what they did to correct the issues?

I have driven Chrysler products most of my life and have to agree; If you don't take care of your car, it won't take care of you, and being knowledgeable about your vehicle's weakness is a very good way not to have break downs. So thanks to everyone who wrote their opinion about their cars. It has given me lots of food for thought.
