I am looking at a used 2001 Intrepid.
Not an ES, not an SE, not an RT, just a 'normal' everyday Intrepid.
Nothing fancy, 2.7 motor, auto-stick, alloy wheels, fog lights, no other big options,no leather, no CD, no sunroof, no power passenger seat.
'They' want more for this car than a comparable SE or ES. 13,000 miles on it.

What does an ES and an SE have that a 'plain' Intrepid does not, and vice verse ? :confused:

the SE is the "'normal' everyday Intrepid" otherwise known as Standard Edition.
I don't *THINK* you will find an SE w/foglights, autostick nor alloy wheels, unless somoene added em on and since they add all that to the ES's and R/T's (only R/T's get autostick in 2002)

Oh , i get it.
The 'SE' is the base edition, but the NON 'SE' is a step up..... that's silly, but at least you folks pointed it out to me.
I guess it defies logic to think a NON 'SE' would be the base vehicle, and an 'SE' would be a step up (I guess i was thinking SE meant 'Special Edition').
So now i get to go figure what an 'SE' has that a non-SE does not have....

But can you answer me this - is an auto-stick standard on all of them in 2001 ?

OK...here's the deal.

There are only 3 types of Intrepids for 2001.

SE, ES and R/T

Only the ES and R/T get the autostick.

If you are confused because some intrepids don't have any badging, that's because they never used to put any on the SE's!

Why go used. You can get a new 2001 (yes I said 2001) for a steal.

Call your local dealers, I'm sure they have some on the lot.

Good luck.

I've been looking, at, letsee, 6 or 7 dealers (in the KC area), have not found a new 2001.
Keep in mind i have a particular budget in mind, if i didn't have a budget, i'd get an RT.
To INTREPID99 and BK, then the autostick must have been an option they ordered with it, because the car i drove was NOT an SE, ES, RT, GT, SVO, SHO, GP, TA or any other acronym you can think of.
All i was trying to do here was find out why on earth a 'Base' Intrepid would be nearly $1,800 higher than an SE....... The low miles, Alloys, Fogs sure don't add up to that, but i don't know what an auto-stick adds to the price...... but i will like the auto-stick better when they add paddles to the steering wheel like an F1 car... :)

I think i was trying to be sold a bill of goods with this car. It was also VIN'd as having a 3.2 - it doesn't. D56U
:(
