Angry And the plot thickens...Man, WTF?!

Hey, guys. You'll never guess what happened today...I went to Carmax in Schaumburg to look at 2002 Intrepid ES 3.5L that I had seen on the internet for sale at $13995. It only had 15k miles on it. A hell of a deal, right? Check this out. While I was there, I looked at some other LH bodies, specifically a '00 LHS with every option and for a second, a Concorde. Anyway, I test drove the LHS, which was in very good shape, but the steering was a little numb and the ride was kinda harsh with the 17" wheels. Plus, it was $1000 more than the Intrepid and had quite a few extra thousand miles on it. Needless to say, I chose the Intrepid, which had very few options other than the 16" aluminum wheels and a power drivers seat. I had bought the car and was ready to drive it off the lot when the sales lady showed me the trunk...it had an SE badge!!! I popped the hood, and to no surprise of my own, it had a 2.7L engine. I knew it was too good to be true! The sales manager offered to drop $200 off the extended warranty, but I declined.

Needless to say, they're importing a 2002 ES with 26k miles on it in the same blue pearlcoat exterior from Merrillville, IN. The sales lady is going to go get it herself and have it there by Monday. I felt bad about making them cancel everything because they were so awesome about the whole process, but I just couldn't live with the fact that it wasn't the car that I wanted.

Sorry for the long post, but I'll be driving home that ES on Tuesday before I go to work. I'm getting it for $15,000, but they're going to give me a bit of a discount on the warranty because I still chose to buy from them even after they advertised the wrong car. Well, anyway, I'm BAAACK!!

Hell, yeah. That blue is freakin' beautiful! I know what you're saying, but I just hate being difficult with people, especially when they've been nothing but super-cool with me since I walked in the door.

Ok, but what happened to the gold/tan one you showed me Steve? Did you change your mind about the color (and the 3.5) at the last minute or what?

Good choice on the 2nd gen. You'll get a lot of compliments on how nice it looks. I know you'll love it. Yes, that color blue is very cool too. Good Luck!!!

sounds like a plan, I would have spent the extra money on the LHS, but if this suits you better, then rock on. Is it like the patriot blue pearl color, I LOVE that color.

Dunno if it does, but even if it doesn't, I could always add it.

Maybe the guy from Indiana could tell ya if it has auto-stick or not...that would be bitchin' but I don't think it's an option on 2002 ESs...
