Newbie, considering buying an Intrepid
I've had good luck with my '98 Stratus 2.4 but it's not that comfortable on long trips and I want something bigger. Northern California freeway conditions don't help either.
My experience with large cars until now has been only with OHV rear-drives. An Intrepid or Concorde sounds good to me, but exploring this site leaves me with some doubts about the risks with these.
I see that I need a Gen2 to avoid transmission problems, and I'm concerned about both the 3.2 and the 3.5 Gen2's since they are interference engines.
This leaves the 2.7, which has its own problems. I don't drive hard and economy is important, but I don't see how I could feel good with a 2.7 if it might break at any time.
A new or very new car is out of the question, so getting a car with a warranty would be difficult.
Any ideas on how to proceed?
Thanks, Ray Mac.
