my 3.5 had the waterpump replaced before it went out. you should find out if the waterpump has been replaced yet on that car. that's the only thing that i can think of that causes problems as a rule with the 3.5.

as far as which actual car to get? the 3.3 and 3.5 are both solid engine designs, very few problems. it comes down to what you are gonna use the car for. if you want to burn around town and drive it like you stole it then the 3.5 would be better. if you're just looking for a good, reliable, efficient daily driver the 3.3 maybe better, especially because it has lower miles. either way you go you should be pretty safe though, 97 was a great year for dodge. we have had 2 97s and they are both awesome. good luck with yer car.
