Hey boys and girls. Im new to the whole g8 scene but would like to join as soon as possible:} Anyways I saw this g8 at a local dealership and was wanting to know what you guys think. Ive got them down to 19.7k but the carfax has sum repairs listed such as camshaft,belts, water pump, ect. Im like why has it had so much work and been certified twice. Just being careful. G8s seem to be high around here price wise.
No don't jump til after you got the car . Oh and your gonna need my name and info . For the will . Then you can jump lol. So welcome. I've had mine for almost a year now and when I'm not driving it ,I'm not happy . It seems to be a fair price if all the issues are handled. Dont know what that would cost you to do. See it has the sport package but wasn't looking to see if it had a sunroof. If there willing to handle repairs and also willing to take it to your own mechanic to have it looked over. Always good to get an unbiased opinion from a person not trying to sell you the car . It does have a 100,000 five year warranty . Good luck on the purchase. Hope it works out well .
It does have a sunroof pony;} Like i said I have had alot of bad luck with cars "Grand Cheeroke uh ford probe gt please dont laugh" and seeing airbag being worked on makes me think unreported wreck lol. I have a 06 g35 coupe fully loaded and it has been my first great car except for the oil burning they are know for which I have to add once a month.I always wanted a 04 mach 1 when I was younger but now my son has gotten too big for tiny coupe backseats. I figure the g8 will let me have my cake and eat it too. Plus the color is very different I likey!!
Figured. One thing you way wanna look at and wish I could of, is the your biggest complaint about your g8. It's something like 40 plus pages but you'll see what are general issues with these cars. Mine has been ok (hard knock on wood ! ) but have seen some crappy issues come up on this forum. One common gripe is the front end is bad when it comes to paint chips. Mines black and I am so gonna have it painted. Hear yuh on the airbag thing.
It was a reprogram recall. If you had the passenger seat as far forward as it would go and you were in an accident the airbag could delay deployment by something like 20 milli seconds or something like that. How many people drive with the seat all the way forward?
I've had mine for about 3 weeks now and I can't say enough about it, I love it. I have the Panther Black Metallic. Looks like a luxury vehicle on the outside, then you step on the gas and it's alll muscle!
