so thats like 175,000 miles on a 99? thats 20K a year...thats pretty high..if this is a 2.7 liter, which i believe ES were, then pass unlesss he wants next to nothing for it, those motors were prone to sludge if a strict 3000 mile oil change regiment wasn't kept. i've actually heard of some dealers doing 3.5 liter conversions before selling them again after a trade b/c they are such a troublesom motor...if it's a 3.5 on the other hand, those motors were the exact opposite and preform amazingly..there's alot of them rolling aorund still with 200,000+ miles on them....however i dunno how many of them have the original transmission behind them...something else to consider with that kind of mileage on a used car.

if u do buy this car, you definately have some change coming back to you.... take a 13 mm socket to the rear bench seat.... take it out, and your in for a big surprise..... A GOLDMINE!

we have a 00 intrepid with 285,000 on it and its been well taken care of and everything. the transmission and motor was changed around 150,000 so i would say that they have a pretty good life expectancy if they are taken care of.
