How about something you don't like about your Intrepid

I'll start. To many of you this may seem minor. Overall I like my car(other then when the transmission exploded), but this one thing drives me crazy.

I can't stand how the air blows in on me when I am driving with the windows down.

1. TOO LONG !!!

Space could be allocated differently to get the same trunk and seating and make the car a bit shorter.

2. Terrible brakes, too small.

3. Trunk is useless because of small opening on 2nd gen intrepids, you can barely get a large luggage inside, nevermind a 2nd. You can use the trunk if you have loose junk that can fit and can then be stored to the top.

BTw the headlights is just ppl being negligent and careless, you can get protective film to make them last forever and it wont break the bank either. I do hate that the tails like on many cars are plastic welded so you cant take them apart :(

second vote for the weatherstrip.

I would have built the car with an available V8 engine. Its got decent power for a big sedan but I always thought a V8 option for the r/t would be much better.

Are you serious?! The engine compartment is small enough as is..so the only way to keep the same room...is to cut down of trunk space...and you're saying you can still make it shorter...and keep the same amount of trunk space? Don't see that happening.


I took my taillights apart

I took my taillights apart
the front portion of the dash is huge, rear leg room is way too big. I never mentioned reducing the engine bay.

BTW forget the v8, manual transmission and supercharger option/turbo would have been the best alternative to keep space limited and provide more power.

RWD would have been nice :(
