Oh, that's real helpful, "maxpower". Did you think that up all by
yourself?

FYI - just got home from picking my '99 Dodge Intrepid up from the dealer
and guess what they said???? Needs a new engine: oxygen sensors soaked in
oil, damaged catalytic converter, piston seals, need I go on? I absolutely
love my car but now am faced with the dilemma of scrapping it or trying to
find an engine to go in it. Since I purchased the car the transmission
has been rebuilt, several sensors replaced, many smaller defects (power
window), and now this. And for all the negative folks listening, yeah,
the up-keep was flawless, papers to prove it. It is truly a shame that a
car with that much potential had to have such a horrible engine! Maybe
I'll keep it, or maybe I'll start car shopping. Any suggestions on a car
that won't break down before it's paid for? ~A~

<<<<Any suggestions on a car

How can you answer a question like that? I see these intrepids in my dealer
every day, some have up to 300k on them with the 2.7, my brother owns one,
he has 98k, my wife has the sebring with the 2.7 she has 33k
If I suggested an intrepid what would you have said? I see all makes and
models with problems, from Ford to Chevy to Toyota and so on...you asked a
rhetorical question!!!

1 a : of, relating to, or concerned with rhetoric asked merely for effect
with no answer expected <a rhetorical question> (that is what i gave you)
