I'm Back

After a few years leaving this forum because I got rid of my 1st Generation 1996 Intrepid, I'm back. My mother passed away a couple of weeks ago and she has a 2001 SE, so I took it home with me. It has a 3.2L and it feels a bit lazy than the 3.5 I had. I don't know, it could be my imagination.

An ES? Seeing as it has a 3.2L.

The side of the car has SE and under the hood it has a 3.2L. VIN shows it as a 3.2 as well.

Condolences on your mother's passing.

I've read of some ES's coming with 2.7's from the factory, but not SE's with 3.2. Special order?

Thank You.

It might have been special order from someone who ordered it and didn't pick it up. I just know that my mom and step father bought it brand new right from the dealer. It has thrown me a loop a few times looking for parts and the 3.2L isn't a choice of engine.

2001 was the last year of the 3.2L. Maybe Chrysler decided to throw a leftover 3.2 in an SE just for giggles! At the end of 2004 a number of Intrepid SE models left the factory with bumpers with fog lights which didn't come on SE cars. Just using up left over parts I guess.

I can see that happening.
