Need help. Should I buy this car? 99' Intrepid
So my car got totaled and I'm looking for something else. I came across a beautiful 1999 Intrepid with 127xxx miles on it. After test driving it, I went home and did a little research and that's when I found out about the reputation of this 2.7L engine. My question is, are the problems the 2.7L has had all problems that would have/should have surfaced by now with the car having as many miles on it as it does? I'm figuring with the sludge issue that will be a concern throughout the life of the car, but I am fine with only using synthetic oil if that is what it takes. FYI I'm a college student who can't afford constant repairs. I love this car but I want to make a good decision.
