looks like the front RH fender has been replaced since the stripes went on.

Pass.
Good pick by Steve R about the front fender.
Does not have the updated radio with the larger screen, no leather, no sunroof and its an 08.
There's 09 V6's up in this neck of the woods priced from $6-10K most with Premium sound and comfort packages e-tested and certified.
For that price you could probably pick up a GT a grand more if you were willing to travel to pick it up.
Don't know what your time frame is but don't settle for one of these, take your time the right G8 for you is still out there.
My opinion for what its worth.
Good hunting.

Your search was San Antonio and I'm up here in the burbs of Toronto so I don't know if you want that much of a road trip.
Go to Kijiji Ontario and you will get an idea of prices up here. With the exchange rate you could get quite a deal.
Did you try Auto trader down there? I have family in Dallas and am always looking on your sites to see what is down there.

Be patient, there's one out there.

I asked him about it today. He looked at both sides acting like he didn't know what I was talking about. Then he said it was like that when they bought it.

Yes, do not get that car! Just imagine what else they "don't know" definitely use car gurus like Steve R said, that is how i found mine!

Keep looking. If you are willing to travel, you will find a decent GT for around 10k!

Tell the dealer to ditch the stripes, the window drip thingies, and sell it to someone else.

Not a lot of info there and one lousy picture, but I've never used Craigslist before so I'm probably missing something.
Hey worth a shot, go take a look.
It does have GT 19" sport rims on it which is cool.
I always look for paperwork/history. Get the VIN and go to GM, they should provide you with a history of work done.
Good luck.

I looked at it. Every thing looked ok. It has 83k miles on it. He was at his birthday party so I didn't drive it. I don't know about the price though. I did located a v8 for a similar price. It has 125k.

Do yourself a favor, drive a V6 and a V8. Do NOT buy until you have driven both. Your decision will be very simple. Take your time to find the right one.
