To Buy or Not

Newbie---need new car, current 95 Avenger is slowly dying, altho has a replacement motor, the maintenance is more than the car is worth.

Negotiating with a "broker" for an Intrepid, 02 or 03

As the "buy" will come from the dealer auction (closed to non-dealers) I do not have the option of selecting just the right car. The broker will buy for me what I tell him I want, if available,

What are he most desirable models and is there anything other than the 2.7 motor to avoid.

The cars are selling in the $11,000/13,000 Canadian range, mileages arounf 40K (miles)

Your help is appreciated
Terry

Good luck finding an R/T at an auction. I was looking for one for awhile, but if you find an R/T for under $13K, buy it.

I think a nicely equipped 3.2 ES would do nicely. Let us know how it works out.
