    We bought a '94 Dodge Intrepid yesterday.

    3.3l, 99k. Perfect body with a tiny dent above the rear passenger side wheel.

    The paint is shiny (the most important part)...

    It runs awesome, and I think it has had the "slip"-04 tranny replaced, so I'd say we're on a fairly low miles tranny, too. We bought it at a smokin' deal from a business man that used it for a month while between company cars (nice to have money!!).
    He bought it from a dealer, so the interior is in factory/new condition, any scratches were touched up, it has all new rubber. I can't get over how nice the car is, and how luxury while at the same time seeming to be a decent performer...

    I wanted an ex-police Caprice or Crown Vic (only 'cause it was police modded!), but she was more into something that will impress the other soccer moms... They all like shiny paint more than screaming horses under the hood... She's letting me buy a Trans Am or Camaro since we got the Intrepid for such a good price, then we'll sell her car or give it to her sister, while I park and dismantle-to-rebuild the K5. Little bastard thoughts keep creeping in about selling the K5 out of fear it will rust in peace in the yard, but I'm trying to beat them down with fantasies of wheelin' through the woods as a weekend warrior...

    Anyway, I'm just kinda psyched that we finally have a vehicle bult in the 90's...

    And I was wondering what everyone thought of Intrepids. Thoughts?

    Just go to this site and find out on recalls and make sure they are up to date and you should be good...

    <font color="blue">I work at a Dodge dealer so I work on these all the time. They're nice cars. I can get a better recall list if you want
