I turn to you!! Intrepid drivers I require your assistance! :D

Hello Everyone

I have come here today to ask for your opinions. Yes. It does have something to do with an Intrepid :P

Currently, i drive a 92 Civic EX with a 1.5 liter engine. My dad came to me today and said,

"How would you like a Dodge Intrepid instead of that Civic?"

Now, i didn't answer immediately and said i would research the car. And now, i ended up here

So everyone, i would like to ask, do you think i should get the Intrepid? Will it be a huge improvement over my current ride?

Any insight would be great


The Intrepid in question is a 98 model and is in good condition according to my dad.

So, what do you think? Should i commit?

Much appreciated ^_^

Generally speaking, if it is a 3.2 or a 3.5, I would be inclined to take him up on the offer.
If it is a 2.7, I would roll with the Honda......

Just my $.02 worth

No pics unfortunately, but i have seen it. Its a pretty dark red color

My dad says its a 3.5 and its in great condition and recently painted.

My Civic, and i won't lie, is not in the best of shapes. But i recently modified it a bit with a K&N Intake and a magnaflow performance exhaust. I even got some angel eye headlights for it But performance wise, it is definitely not a performer :P It takes me like 16 seconds to get to 90 kph XD

Go with the Intrepid...you will thank yourself as you sell that Honda to someone else, and take the proceeds to start modding the Intrepid.

I'd take a 3.5 Trep over a Honduh any day of the week, 365 days of the year.

If it's a 98, it's not a 3.5 unless it's a swap.

Lebanon ... in the U.S?

3.5 was not available until 2000

No way, don't mean the mid-west? LOL

But you did use KPH instead of MPH...

And, heck, we did have a new guy on here yesterday from Poland.

I have a "94 with the 3.5. Not a swap. They've been around since the Intrepid's debut in the fall of '92.

The Intrepid debuted in 1992? I'd like to see info to back that up! They did start building them in late 1992 for sale as the 1993 model year cars.

In the 2nd gen Intrepids you couldn't get a 3.5L until 2000. There was only the 2.7L and 3.2L in the Intrepid from 1998-2000. 2001 was the only model year Intrepid you could get either a 2.7L/3.2L/3.5L. The 3.2 was dropped after model year 2001 for all LH models. The 300m which debuted in 1999 had a 3.5L but the Intrepid did not.
