Thanks for the responses so far. I really want to do the trade, but since everyone on here is apprehensive and I was too (thats why I posted here), I want to do a little more thinking. Keep the responses coming........Thank You........PS I used to have a 2000 Intrepid with the 2.7, died at 60K, I had a 3.2 put in with 16K for 2.5K but then the trans started to go and I traded it in. I figured since this one (concorde)went 190K and on the origional engine, maybe it is immortal? lol
I spoke to my friend this morning and he told me the woman he bought it from bought it in 1999 with 40K and put 140K on it so when my friend got it had 180K, she told him it had new power steering pump, radiator and heater core, tires, brakes,etc. He told me to go to the shop where she serviced it to see if I could get receipts to see what else if anything was done. I really am falling stupid in love with this concorde because it looks and drives nice, but so did my intrepid with the 2.7L read above. I just thought this would be my chance out of an ugly yet reliable escort and into a newer car (I just drive it in winter, I have a 2002 Camero that I don't want to get all salty in these NY winters.
