I'm so sorry!
I know what you mean though..I was given a 99 intrepid without a choice & at first I was leery of it. But i've come 2 realize intrepids really take care of their owners. Last year I was involved in a nasty rear end collision, causing my poor car almost 6k in damages. And the only thing that happened 2 me was a sore neck..this car never let me down, never broke down, never died, never "not started", even in below 30 weather chicago gets here, never had any problems..it's been perfect from day one(my parents originally bought it brand new for themselves) & it's truly been a perfect car 2 own..I would def try 2 get another intrepid, a second gen! You will love it even more than your first gen. I'm sure you can find a great one cheap, there are TONS out on the market..good luck! =)
