Hello, my name is Steve and I am currently driving a 2002 Jetta 1.8T which is now for sale. I need to get myself into a less expensive and larger car. I thought I would look at a used Intrepid. I went to a dealer and spotted a 2000 R/T and took it for a solo test drive. It was a little rough and had about 46,000 miles on it. I was impressed with the roominess and the ride. It was comfortable for the long ride but sporty too. I liked the transmission and the ability to shift when I wanted. Very quick, firm shifts in the manual mode and smooth shifts in auto. I will miss the turbo kick of my car but the smoothness of this V6 will be welcome. I stumbled upon this sight while searching for info on the R/T and I must say that I am very happy that I did. I learned that this is an enthusiastís car. A pre requisite of any of my cars is that it must be easily modified and aftermarket parts be readily available. The Intrepid fits the bill. I look forward to being a part of your community.
