I just thought this would be interesting to see how we all treat our cars on the street....since I know we all treat them better than our first born when they are in the garage.

I'm not too hard on it overall. But what's the point of having the 3.5 if you don't get on it once a week or so. :gross_07:

Every now and then I'll hit it just to see how she is behaving. As she gets older I tend to drive more like a granny, trying to baby the tranny. I just like to know that she still has it in her.

Not hard on it at all.. unless I am forced to be....

I get alot of people thinking I am in a Charger Daytona, Hemi and all... which is fun, till I loose the race...cause usually its something that could have a chance against a Daytona Charger...but not a 32 Intrepid....

i'll admit, i do drive mine hard, but she seems to respond better to it then slowy drivinh, shifts below 3000rpms dont seems as smooth and quick as above, she rides compelety smooth at 80 to 90mph like its no bodys buisness, but a first Year, First gen 3.3. She has one hell of a spirit. And yes, i expect the best out of my car, but i give it the best!!!

Rev limiter every day I drive it, which is like once every couple weeks now till it starts to snow alot. Then it becomes the daily driver.

I bring my baby up to redline almost everytime I drive her :p Usualy only 1st tho.
When cruising, I rarely pass 3000.

I think I've only hit the limiter twice...

well heres a good question, on the 3.3 which is a OHV engine, is there a limiter or is it just where the valves start floating at bout 5440 rpms?

I rarely ever get close to 4000, but some times I will hit the speed gov.

As gently as possible without frigging up traffic flow. Infrequently fast. Floor it now an then but don't hold it too long.
I gotta pay to fix the beast, so i want to get the most MPG (miles per bucks) I can.

Cheers

Interesting range of results.....and I think I can safely speak for all of us who selected the last few options when I say to all of you who selected the first few options...Hurry Up and Get Out of the Way! lol
