Very nice description but I would try to re-negotiate that price for a lower one.

I agree sounds like a nice car but in this market you should be able to get a better price-- at the 10,000 price would only buy it if you just can't live without it-- I have to admit I have bought a car or two a little over priced because I just loved it so much

People here in Chicago always add an extra 5k to what the car is worth.

2004 SXT are probably the best Intrepids imo.

From what I remember hearing Chrysler started cutting costs starting in late 2002 on all of the LH models. The later LH's had cheaper wiring harnesses, thinner plastic on the coolant resevoir, less insulation, and didn't have the headlight levelers. So most people say the "Golden Age" of the 2nd Gens would be the early 2002's because it is just before the cost cutting began.

So what you are saying is that 1998-2002 were the best.

I GOT IT. picked it up tonight (friday 21st) sorry not pics yet also got about 6 inches of snow on the first day of spring. i will get them up as soon as the weather breaks and i get it cleaned up. first question is it has tan leather seats with the front bucket seats having the dodge emblem on them, was this a stock thing or aftermarket? they are cool. next what takes pin stripes off? it has a red thin stripe down the side and i think it has to go.

Yes and no. People consider the early 2002 models the best because they are the most updated and arguably had the best options. In late 2002 they started cost cutting. The only problem is that these cars are obviously older than the 2003 and 2004 models.
