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.
