I've owned this car a year now and I've grown to like it more and more. Great comfortable seats, enormous amounts of space front, back, trunk. Handles like a sport sedan if you push it. Still very tight at 87K. Good power; I recommend the 3.5L. I've found it to be great in the snow also. I read the car was top 20 in reliabililty somewhere. That made me feel pretty good. I like the dashboard and white instrument panel. Had a 93 Intrepid and a 96 LHS. This 2nd generation Intrepid has been refined. Much tighter than the LHS at the same miles.
Value. Comfort on highway. Very quiet at lower speeds. Highway mileage. Exterior design. Trip computer w. homelink system. Shoulder room. Limo- like rear seating.
This has been the best car I've ever had. One minor glitch in Feburary '05 with a leaking water outlet housing. Other than that, I am highly satisfied with this car and would recommend it to families that need a car with a lot of room. I average 23 MPG overall and it has enough power to get me down the road. As long as maintenance is kept up and as a suggestion to all, use synthetic motor oil, this car will last your over 200,000 miles. Awesome car!
Power accessories like windows, locks, cruise, AM/FM stereo, keyless entry.
Improve the C-pillar, it creates a horrible blind spot. Also, relocate battery in trunk, tedious task to replace battery.
People seem to be complaining about gas mileage? Come on people, get REAL! Per SQ. Ft., this is no doubt the most economical SPORT/Family-"FunToDrive" car on the road!! At 234HP, this vehicle with a 3.5L Outperforms ANY car in it's class/year and price range. More importantly, it does it with style, agility and room to spare! If you want 2-4 MPG more, go for half the room, no pep, flat, boring Honda and pay thousands more! Buy this however, and you can put a couple of those thousands in the gas tank and be very pleanantly surprised and happy with all the room and style you got, not even to mention the truely spirted drive you'll experience!
It's a very well balanced, across the board intelligent design!
Bought mine new, use it on the highway in northern Canada. Great in ice and snow. Great family car, fits kids nice. Lots of passing power at highway speed. I am 6'5 and I find it to be a comfortable ride. It is a little bit of work to get in and out of though.
Lots of room, great highway care, can pass easily 120km to 150km few seconds and handles great
