Intrepid replaced with..... another Intrepid.....

Well last Wednesday a bad car accident which wasn't my fault took my 2000 ES away from me.... kind of sad about that....was a great car. So today me and the Mrs went out looking at alot of Concorde's, 300's, Sebring's and Intrepids.

We settled with a 2004 Intrepid SXT, fully loaded with only 80K miles
Every option available and the 3.5 motor.... the belts are being replaced right now, all 3 including the timing belt. Next new tires. I will do the oil change, air filter and platinum plugs tomorrow. I will post pics after I get the car washed. Im happy to have an Intrepid again

Congrats!! Get some pics up, show her off. Sounds like a good find. Before you go buy a new air filter, any plans on doing a cold air intake on the car? Would be a good time to do so. Maybe exhaust too? I have a Flowmaster left over from a project i just finished on my truck if you're interested.

Well I checked a few things and some things dont add up to the ad. The title of the car says SXT but the car dosent have chrome wheels or the spoiler... maybe they were an option.....on the side of the car it does not have ES letters either.... the CD player is a 1 cd.... not multi... other than that everything is fine.

I had the timing belt, sperpentine and AC-V belt changed, a tuneup and oil changed, Champion platinums. Need tires next.

The ES and SXT models are two different versions, which is why you don't have the lettering. The later model second gens only had the "ES" marked on the trunk lid anyways. I might go back and question them on the 4 disc CD player since it's listed on the window sticker. They may install it for you, or you might be able to barter them for some free oil changes or other maintenance.

If you have just the 3.5, it's an ES, if it's the High-Output then it's the SXT. All SXTs had HO so don't let them pull the wool over your eyes about it. Oh, and not all SXTs had the chrome rims in 04 either, and some ESs did.

Ok, the engine just says 3.5
The title says SXT
the CD changer is a 1 CD unit.....
No ES anywhere on the car
Standard aluminum 16" rims.....

Me and my wife think it might be an ES...... we have a paper from when the car came from the factory and it says it was built for Fleet.... like a company car or something.... weird, but a nice car. She goes in for a front end alignment and new Goodyear Assurance Comfort Treads friday morning....

Sounds like an ES... I may be wrong, but I dont think leather was an option for SXTs. It DEFINITELY was not common. How much did you pay for it?

Then it's an ES. No question about it.

Paid $4000, she has 87K miles on her too..... im nowheres near an expert as for the options which were available for the SXT versus ES, but yes my car is all leather interior..... I like the sunroof, or moonroof.... whatever it is. The 3.5 is nice and powerful and fun to cruise around.

Ok... it's an ES..... ok.... better change the model info

IIRC: You can also verify this with the 6th, 7th and 8th digit of your VIN....SXT should be 56G. I you look at the carfax report (you can check that without subscription, just check for the basic record), it will show 2004 Dodge Intrepid ES/SXT....

After my Wife's '99 SE was on it 2.7L last legs at 125k miles we traded it in for a slightly used (30k miles) red motorsports edition RT with the sunroof. We are going to pass that to our niece soon (147k and runs super strong) so we have been driving the Intrepids for 240k miles and while my Wife has switched to a sebring convertible I look forward to my SRT8 '99 terp for years to come. I think it is the nearest to a perfect car. We considered a couple years ago a new Charger but the car is almost the same when you are sitting in it and since my new SRT will eventually have a 383 stroker I do not think I will be missing much there.
