I had to take the Interpid into the dealer this morning to get the alignment done and while I was waiting I went looking at the 2002 Intrepids. I saw a gold one that looked interesting in that it had chrome wheels etc. I walked around back and it said ES on the trunk lid but there was any 3.5 badging on it (the sticker said it was though). I opened the door and looked inside and that's when I noticed THERE WAS NO AUTOSTICK. It was a regular floor mounted 4 speed. I thought I'd share that info with everyone here.

BK, the 2002's get the 3.5, it's just tuned down. I dont think dodge would be stupid enough to put 3.5 badging on the ES and R/T, seems like that would piss alot of people (R/T drivers) off! I know I'm not real happy about it.

I thought all ES's still got autostick, though?

Nope...Was at the dealer last week at the Autostick wasn't showing for the ES.
01 Black, dirty, swirly R/T
I wasn't exactly happy about the ES getting the 3.5 either bboucher but I felt a lot better seeing that it didn't have the autostick also.

So you can't get the autostick on ES at all now?

Makes me feel so warm and cozy inside =) No autostick unless you get the R/T! Have I mentioned how much I love my 2002 R/T yet??? (still wish I had a 5-speed)

At least the ES's finally have the option of Chrome 16" wheels

I do not like the new rims for 02. 98,99,01 had nice rims. I do not know if the style was changed in the states for 00 on ES Treps, they put concord rims on in Canada. ewww, looks like shit. Now these new rims, I do not like the style as much as 98,99,01. just my opinion.

Haven't seen the chrome ES rims for 2002 yet? I think the previous ES rims would look good chromed, though...

blkbute -for 02 US and CDN cars use the same new style rim. We stopped using the Concorde rim late last year,it sure made ES cars look like crap IMOP,
Autostick is only on R/T for 02
