Might be saying bye bye to the intrepid

I might be traiding my intrepid off for an 04' Chevy Cavalier or an 01' Dodge Ram 1500. The Cavalier will become mine, but the Ram will become my moms so i'll be left with out a car... I dont know what's gonna happen yet, the tranny in the trep' is slipping right now and i guess it throws fits on my mom every once in a wile... Just taught i'd share the fact that i might be saying bye... :(

Well that's too bad, but there are lots of people here that don't have a trep anymore. No reason to leave the site!

How is it that you'll be without a car, when you say the '04 Chebby will be yours? I don't understand...

dude, no J-Body is faster than the intrepid without some major mods done to it...
and j-bodys are big rattletrap pos's, so manual tranny or auto tranny, the thing is still gonna be exactly what it was made to be: cheap junk
and if thats really your dream car then....

I haven't owned a car slower than a J-Body ever. I mean the 2003's are faster than they used to be, but they're still cheap pieces of junk. Which explains why they were selling them for $9995 CDN up here brand new for a few years.

Iíd be very careful buying an entry level car like a Cavalier. A friend of mine was backing hers out of her parking spot at her apartment and turned a little too soon, which caught the bumper on a support post for the carport she parks under. Rather then just scraping the bumper, the entire bumper along with the headlights popped off and fell to the ground. In her words, she said that it must have been held on with bubblegum and hope. The point Iím getting at is simply to be aware that Cavaliers are simply not made as well as Intrepids and other midrange family sedans, so in 2015 when that little Chevy is as old as your trep is now, it probably will be in far worse shape. But thatís just my $0.02

well, i have a tendacy to get bored with my cars so ill prolly end up traiding the cavy off in a year or two.. I want to get another intrepid someday and do mods to it and stuff, if i do get the cavy i will prolly stick around the site and watch mods be preformed and wish i would have kept the intrepid... Very good chance i will be joining the intrepid family again!
