My first car, lemon

Vehicle: 1997 Dodge Intrepid 4dr Sedan

I bought this car used in 2010. I don't remember the exact millage but I believe it was over 150XXX. The AC didn't work, the turn radius was horrible, and there was a cassette stuck in the cassette player. I used to ask my passengers to try to get out for fun. 7 months after I bought it, it started overheating, got stuck on the side of the road a couple times. Had to replace the radiator and it cost about $500. Month later, the transmission went and I decided to junk it.

Is this really dodge/chrysler? I cant believe how comfortable it is. Cozy interior, and a war attack of an exterior. Good on gas, and doesnt stop rolling. Bought with 111k miles. Now @ 151ish, and still running with no check. Engine lights, no problems. This is what a car is suppose to do. If it ever dies ill rebuilt it and drive it again til it dies again, rinse and repeat.

We had this car for right up until about 160,000 miles. At that point it just started to go down hill, weird wiring problems seemed to plague the car. Just after 160,000 though. Before that, it was a great car. Ran great, and gave us years of faithful service. I wonder what happens with these cars at 160,000 or if it was just us. Performance was excellent even up into it's last days, the engine still had plenty of pep. Very roomy, even on long trips going from Cali to Utah multiple times with four people in it, very comfortable.

I have a '96 Intrepid ES with 3.5 liter but no autostick. These cars do not have a great reliability history. Here is what I have had repaired in the 27k miles I've owned (I bought the car with 55k mi...

70's rotors. I'm sure the modern ones on the Intrepid are lighter, more high-tech, more expensive (easier to warp,etc). By the time you throw in new calipers, brake pads, etc, I guess $647 isn't th...
