I love my GA (duh!). Trust me, I'd admit if it was underpowered or otherwise yucky-its not. Did the car you drove have the I4 or the V6 in it?

I just have to jump in on this one.

I despise anything made by Chrysler (including Dodge, Plymouth, etc.) It says a lot when you see 2-year old Intrepids with blue smoke trails. As someone said, they look okay (depending on who you ask), but their engineering department should be taken out back and shot in the groin, then the knees, then finally the head. My parents have a 96-ish Caravan, and that thing still has multiple accessory belts, a distributor, and a terrible automatic transmission.

Fords seem to suck hard too. My bro-in-law has a Contour that seized without warning at 130k miles. And the 5-speed manual transmission was going too (synchros worn out).

I'd still take a Ford over a Chrysler, but either way I would feel intense shame and loathing.

Jim: Don't do the 300!

Princess, I drove a White with Charcoal interior, with a 3400 V6.... I loved it... we took it out on the backroads... It was fun... Ran the 3400 to almost 6000 Rpms... That GA could move... I still felt that my 95 Bonnie had more guts, but the GA would keep up for sure... I think the GA had the 3.05 gear ratio... Great Car... Then I saw the G6 and almost tossed my cookies... I'd rather have a Grand Am than a G6... For some reason the GA looks a lot better to me..

The bonnie has ALOT more guts. I had to drive a malibu with the 3400 for drivers ed and I have to say that I didn't not have a good experence with that car it had no acceleration whatsoever. I'm not trying to bash the ga I'm sure its a great car its just that I don't like the powertrain

Which Malibu? The older 3100, or the newer one with the 3500?

I have driven the 3100'* in the malibus and didn't care that much for them... Thw GA 3400 was a good bit better.... More torque and more ponies...

The 3500 is good for 200hp and 220ft lbs... Not too far off from a 3800 II
