My new car. 56K beware~~~

I have to say that this site is the coolest. You guys and gals look after each others cars and that's great to see. I have been in the market for a new car for the last 8 months and have been lurking in this forum to get ideas for my new trep purchase. Tuning and modding tips. I began my search for a new trep but came to a very sad realization. Although the trep is big enough for me the size of the car was an issue for my job. I work in the city and 90% of my day is in and out of the car. Driving, parking, picking up clients and dropping them off and I realized that the size was gonna be an issue, so I started looking for something that would give me the roominess inside without the bulkiness of a mid-full size car. After test driving GM's, Ford's, Chevy's (sorry, not an import fan. At all) I found my new love.....and I brought her home. And here she is. Please tell me what you think....just don't be too harsh.











I have to admit, the car is very solid and drives very well for a four banger. Chrysler hit the nail on the head on this one. Now I gotta find a decent PT Forum

Yeah that color is sweet. I also like the wheels on it, they look more cooler than some of the stock wheels that come on the cruiser. Nice choice bro.

Just don't use a razor while doing it. You will not believe how many people end up scratching their paint.

It's definitely not as roomy as the trep in the back seat. but seeing as I'm 6'4 and sit confortably in the back, it was a nice surprise.

PITA is right, but once you know how to get at them, it's easy. They're getting swapped out tomorrow as well. I need to get better gas mileage out of it, apparently they're gas hogs.

Myself, I am not a big fan of imports also. Look at our Intrepids, The wheels are made in Mexico, the engine was designed by a Japaneese guy, and the car was built in Canada.

My friend had a 2000 Cruiser and it was a really nice car. Very roomy front and back, and pretty quick for a station wagon. I'm also gonna have to admire that paint job of yours. I wish my paint looked that good.
