Intrepids go cheap here and if you find one with the 3.5, its an awesome enjine.
Sables are cheap also, not sure on how reliable they are but I picked on up for $500 and so far its been good.

intrepid is garbage, my friend had one and it blew itself up with that engine

sables with the 3.8 are horrible just run away from them fast and the trannies in them are garbage no matter what engine u have

I think you better look again, the 3.5 has a huge following. Its considered the 6 cylinder Hemi. The other available engines aren't nearly as good and the 2.5 or 2.7 (i forget which) will blow up when too much sludge builds up in the timing cover.

Hey I know several people with 95-ish Sables with more than 200K on a 3.0 engine and never had a tranny problem either. I got mine with 170k on it and have put 2k on it since w/no problem. Yesterday I had it up over 100mph, a dam taurus beat me :( but I gave it a good run

*looks at Honda in sig*

One of the best $500 deals my dad has ever brought home. Really can't complain about the power from the 1.5L (I was pleasantly surprised by how much it had, even when saddled with the automatic), especially if you just need a little runabout.









IT HAS A TACHOMETER TOO AHAHAHA
