If you don't know the history, then I would be very leary of getting one and expecting it to run for several years. Just too much a risk of paying for an inadequately cared-for car. I'm sure you are aware of some members complaints about the 2.7 engine. Even though I don't buy into the 2.7 bashing, 100-115K miles is a lot for any car. Unless you have the desire/ability to be ready to rebuild the engine, then I would stay away. However, if engine (and probably transmission) replacement would not be a big deal to you, then I would say go for it! That is what I am doing. I have a 95 Intrepid ES (nicest car I have ever owned) and am in the process of fixing up a 98 (with a blown engine) I bought off EBay. The 1Gs are very nice cars, but the 2Gs are even better. The 2Gs ride more smoothly, the 2.7 engine is quieter and more fuel efficient, and the display and center console are laid out better.
