well, the 1997 was the last model year for the first generation Intrepid. The 3.3L engine is a solid, reliable engine. You should have few problems with it. Also, the 3.3L version has few transmission problems as well.

Intrepids have few body/rust problems. The only thing you really need to pay attention to are the suspension and steering components (tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.)

The Intrepid is a great car. Enjoy your new purchase, and welcome to the boards!

I just got my 93 3.3 Intrepid and I love it. It pulls pretty good for having only 153 and weighing a hefty 3500lbs. My baby works awesome and has 210 000km
