Default Today I Parked

next to a 1999-2003 300M and noticed my rims were a bit smaller. Aren't bigger rims bad for performance? No wonder those 252hp 3.5 24V'* can't perform worth sh*t.

I have driven a few intrepids, the older ones with the 3.5 I think and the newer ones with the 2.7.... They were all sorry... Not bad looking cars, But I always asked where all of the horses went... I figured 200 of them were DOA... Its pretty sad when you are very happy to hop back into a 16 year old Bonneville and say OMG this car has some Balls compared to that Intrepid.... LOL

And I have seen too many of the 2.7'* let go.... Makes all of the Ford Vulcan 3.0'* look like a diamond in the rough

Most fail at 60K due to sludge build up. Really sad and feel sorry for the owners. :(

If you want an idea just how bad the A606 trans in the LX bodies are, look for a 300M-Special. They had a beefed up 3.5L, at about 275hp, and the SSEi with 240hp is still faster.
It'* a shame because the 3.2/3.5 motors were terrific powerplants.
It was the older 2.7/3.3 engines in the first-gen Intrepids that were such crap.
