its easier to take care of your nicer older cars if you got a different DD. plus the older cars seem to have attitudes as the grow older so its nice to have a backup.

These cars are great...my aunt and uncle used to run them all the time...they hit 3 full grown steers with one and it still ran like a champ and it didn't do near as much damage as one would have thought...the other one...my cousin rolled....but god cars...all had over 250k+...you should be fine with an intrepid as long as you stay away from the 2.7 v6 that even die hard mopar fans hate with a passion.

My 3800 did that multiple times when the oil cooler line was leaking oil.

The smiley face equals the crap eating grin I'm making while I sarcastically ask a ridiculously stupid question.
