4000lbs??? where did you get that number?At 17' long and over 4,000 lbs I wouldn't call it a mid-size car.
Im not sure what you're asking now, are you saying that the intrepid isnt a full size sedan in comparison with another 20% of vehicles out there.Obviously the larger the car the more difficult it can be to manuever and park. Approximately what percentage of vehicles on the road do you think are larger than an Intrepid.
I don't mean commerical vehicles of course but only residential vehicles so you can include SUVs, Jeeps, minivans, vans, etc.
My guess is about 10 to 15 percent? Or is it more like about 20 percent?
Thats not completely accurate. Manuverability and parkability come from the suspension and steering characteristics. The intrepid is actually a very agile and sporty car for its size, and even many smaller cars! I look at it as a sports sedan. The size and handling would make someone refer to the car as big and sportyObviously the larger the car the more difficult it can be to manuever and park.
I'm not talking about class of cars but I'm more interested in the SIZE of the car i.e. mostly length since the longer the vehicle the more difficult it can be to manuever and park.Im not sure what you're asking now, are you saying that the intrepid isnt a full size sedan in comparison with another 20% of vehicles out there.
1. suv, vans, jeeps do not count because they are not full size cars, yet they are a class on their own.
2. A vehicle can be full sized for various reasons as stated above, if you go to europe, you will find that a sebring is a BIG car there. So is a toyota corolla, my cousins were shocked when they say the size of my car, and with good reason too.
3. Then there are full size luxury sedans which are big to provide comfort, like lexus ls460, bmw 740.
BTW as a side not in case you didnt know, the LX line which now replaced the LH is actually shorter (not by much) but still considered the full size sedan from chrysler.
So to answer your original question, there is no way our cars are midsize by any standards, i guess you can use LARGE or FULL size, either way its a big ass car :smilie_sc
Yeah in '02 or '03 we went to Hertz (dad and I) and we'd booked a Luxury car (Chrysler Intrepid or similar) and we had gotten some POS Buick Century.I remember back in 2000 i rented a Intrepid and they had it at a premium class, and they said it was bigger than a regular full size and a tad bit smaller than a caddy... But either way FULL SIZE!!!
