Greetings!

Hello everyone,

Pleasure to find this forum... I am the proud owner of a 99 Intrepid that I use to commute 130 miles daily. (Yes, I am crazy but I blame the wife! )
Currently the odometer reads 181k and counting... so for those that say the 2.7L engine doesn't hold up, I beg to differ ;)
Look froward to partcicipating in these forums and thanks for all the great information posted here.... impressive!

Welcome aboard Fretless! Wow! 181,000 miles on a 2.7 is VERY impressive.
Do you have any secrets to your motor's success? Also... how about some pics of your trep? Any modifications done to "her" yet?

Wow!! Our 'Trep only sees 80 mi commute and is down to 4 days per week... Welcome Fretless. Are you referring to a stringed instrument or just stress free??

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

Pictures eh? Not sure you want to see my Trep ... but I will take a few and post em when I can. As far as secrets to putting 181k on that 2.7L 90% of my ride is highway so as long as you do proper maintenance when it is due and keep the gas pedal off the floor the car seems to do quite well. I actually bought it used with 24k on it back in 12/99. Great gas mileage as I average 28 mpg most weeks. I think that is great for the size of the vehicle.

Bongobob - Fretless refers to both an instrument and a stress free environment. I piddle around with several instruments including a fiddle and an old 6 string I have had since I was in high school. I live in the southern countryside of Virginia.
