I don't know where to post this question so if you admins think this post needs to be moved, feel free
My brother's 2000 Stratus/Cirrus 2.5L got hit by a mo**********, side impact on the driver side, both doors and fender dead. According to the insurance adjuster the frame moved "upward", just a bit but enough to send this car to the junckyard. I did the timing belt and right cylinders lash adjusters in November! Well...
So now I'm back on leboncoin.fr (French Craigslist) and I'm looking for another Mopar
I have seen a few low mileage babies :
1994 Eagle Vision
, 3.5L engine with 46250 miles on it, well maintained, leather (and heated?) seats => 2800 USD
2000 300M 2.7L
with 78125 miles on it, I don't know if the WP has been changed yet => 3400 USD
2000 300M 2.7L too
with 52500 miles, sunroof, same, don't know about the WP => 4500 USD
3.5L with 74375 miles => 4500 USD
3.5L with 64663 miles => 4500 USD too
All 300Ms sold in France came standard with power heated leather seats, ATC, projector headlamps (even on 1999 models) and headlamp washers.
I already talked to the Vision owner, the car has been parked most of its life in a farmhouse, the red paint is intact.
And I also saw a 2002 Sebring 2.7L with 75000 miles on it in the same price range, powered and heated leather seats too.
I know the 2.7L may be a time bomb if the WP hasn't been replaced and I don't feel like doing this job on a Sebring. Even on a 300M, I'd avoid it if I can...
Another thing, we have "fiscal horsepower" (unit is "cv") here! A 2.7L marks like 14cv and a 3.5L marks 17/18cv. Insurance and title prices are indexed on this unit, the greatest the most expensive of course.
So considering the Vision and a 3.5L 300M, what would YOU prefer? Reliability, drivability, etc...
Thanks in advance guys
