they seem reliable enough, at least about or more so than the 2000+ bonnies.

Nice car! 11.5 is a bit much but maybe its really low miles or something ('02s are going for 10.5 here)
That 3.5 is a sweet engine! Its really built well but there is a recall on it for the injector o-rings if it hasn't been done already. You'll get 200k out of her easy. At least my intrpeid was recalled for it...
I miss that car...totalled on Christmas eve thanks to a drunk driver in a hemi magnum

Ooops, no I meant she has an 04.

And fantastic, I was looking at the specs, and the Chrysler has more HP and torque, but my HP to torque ratio is greater.

I drove the car home tonight, and it is a good driving car. The brakes are a bit touchy, and I had to slam on brakes for a deer, and I got dead-pedal at half way. The steering is good, acceleration is OK. BUT, I am a 5'7" driver, and with the seat in the correct position, I can't reach anything without leaning foreward! None of the steering wheel controls light up at night.

What?!? Thats sh*tty. Even my old 93' 88 beaters steering wheel controls would light up. Sounds like the acceleration is unimpressive too. Even with 252hp Chrysler trannies have a tremendous power loss to the wheels. I'd be willing to bet that if dynoed for wheel hp a 252hp 3.5 would be very similar to the 3800 Ser2 NA. Even though our trannies arn't the most reliable at least they are very efficiant at putting the power down.

I would too. I've rode in one and they're pretty sluggish for 250HP.
