GTA deal or not so good...

Autotrader has an 09 G8 Base V6 listed for $9999 blue (I think its Pacific Slate) with black leather interior with sunroof, mileage 150K. Ad says it has a carproof??? and is in showroom condition. Has been in trader for weeks now, I'd send a link but I don't know how. This could be a deal for someone wanting to get a G8 in Toronto or southern Ontario or a real deal for people in western New York state with exchange your in the $8's.

I believe it started out in the low $13's if it's clean and accident free may be a great deal. It's been there since late Oct early Nov. Mines optioned the same, same mileage except I have Hot White, I paid more.

I could use a new daily driver. That's quite a few km's though.

Km's have never scared me, cross your fingers and hope the previous owner maintained the car and at least did regular oil changes. Mine had 147k when I got it but I was lucky enough to have access to the GM service records from new so I knew what had been done to it.

If it goes to 8000.00 dollars I guess I might buy it.

Its 93,000 miles kilometers converted to miles.If it is looked after it should not be an issue.

Agreed. If the timing chain repair has been done, maybe. If not, let it be.

This V6 also comes from a part of town (my part of town) where many sketchy dealers purchase questionable cars for a song at auction. They were rejected by other dealers for a reason, whether it was cost of reconditioning due to mechanical problems/wear and tear, accident history, or high km's. Sometimes you get lucky and find a gem, but most of the time you need to be VERY careful.

That is an excellent point JerryV, I had not looked at the location of this seller on the map. There are a lot of not so reputable lots Weston to Keele and Laurence right up north of 7. Hopefully its a gem, but your going to have to do your homework.

The V6's are tapped out after 100k... Look for a V8 with the same mileage. Save yourself the grief... Just sayin.

Debatable. As I said before I had All records from GM for my car. Sometimes it's luck of the draw. GT's have there warts with the lifters but the mods you can do make up for that.

How many km's did your V6 have when you sold it.

I thought you had more. That is really not a lot was it a private sale or a trade in. Did you have any issues with your car. For my base that will take at least 15 months before I get that kilometers.

Maybe they'll show up here one day and we'll find out the dirt. Here's more grist for the mill, 09 Base V6 for sale at some dealer in Orillia 230KM for $7K. I think Transporter's advice may be the best for this, but if the chains were done and has been maintained, may be good for another 230KM. Back to my luck of the draw agreement.
