R/Ts are fastest, SEs get the best mileage
SEs tend to sludge up (98-01s mostly)
3.2s are a good in between....got some speed, and you can get pretty good milegae
SEs can be had anywhere from about $3500+
ESs can be had anywhere from about $3700+
R/Ts can be anywhere up from that usually

I picked up my '98 Corde' LXI 3.2L in Feb. and I paid $7k and then another $1k for a 3 year extended warranty. Whatever you do, try to stay away from the 2.7L because they seem to have a lot of unwanted problems; and always go with a warranty, they rule! I just paid $123.00 on a $878.00 bill for a new rack & pinion! But I am having some MPG trouble right now, so it's not the best. I'd say about 11-14 mpg, or so.

:gross_07: How did you know............

I thought that the 02 sensor problem I was having was downstream and wasn't a big deal?

did you nail it down to a the exact problem? usually when one goes bad, its an upstream, and thats what controls fuel flow mostly....but even so, it COULD do that...otherwise you have somethin else wrong

Well I searched the threads and did a self-diagnostic to it and got 2 codes. They were for 1/2 and 2/2, which I was told were both downstreams and didn't do nothing important. Says it couldn't get a reading from the sensor or something like that!

srt-4 is rated at 22 city, 30 highway...i havent heard anyone near that close though (cant keep their foot out of it)...the ES is a good mix of power and mileage, but if you want power, just get an SRT-4 if possible
