Hi (from Victoria, BC Canada)

What a great Board!!!

We have two Intrepids, mine is a 2001 SE, black, nicknamed the Black Pearl by the kids, my wife has a 2000 base model, silver, nicknamed the Silver Bullet by the kids....too much TV for them, I guess...

We bought the 2001 first, and after a few weeks of, lets say, MINOR dis-agreements on who's driving it, bought the 2000. Ended up being cheaper then getting a divorce....

We have installed OEM spoilers on both, and have purchased foglights for both, and soon will be changing the front bumpers so we (or rather me) can install them. Thanks to this board, all my questions about that changeover have been answered, so thanks in advance!!

Both cars have the dreaded 2.7 engine in them, but both are running great. The 2001 has 69,000 k on it, but the 2000 has over 200,000!!. After we bought it, we were cleaning out the glove box, and just behind the glove box we found a bunch or reciepts for major engine parts (dated the previous May). Parts list included crank, pistons, bearings, camshafts...all for a 2.7.

Thanks for letting me ramble on...

Let me start by giving you a big welcome! Especially that I'm only 2 hours away from you.

Yeah, the Intrepid is a very enjoyable car to drive as far as other family cars within the price range is concerned. With reasonable power and good road manners.

The 2.7 will probably develope some issues over time; it's not the best motor around. But with good care, it should last as long as your 2000 model (who the hell was driving it to put so many kms on it?)

One advice I'd give you is to always use Mobile 1. One of the best oil around, and probably helps against engine sludge too.

Welcome aboard. It's great to see another Islander. We're up in Coutenay, but just sold our house and are heading to Nanaimo. There are a few Islanders on this site. Maybe a get together some time.
