Buying a used G8GT

I was wondering what a decent price would be for a 2009 G8 GT with 11k from a dealership. It is listed for $28,990. How far do you think I could talk them down?

28,900 is a little high.. I'm glad to see that they are still asking a good price for them. Not that we would ever see that price on a trade. When I totaled my last G8 they gave me 28,000 and some change. So of'course I got another and it was an upgrade. But before I bought it I checked around and had a hard time getting dealers to deal even with me giving them cash. Luckly, I was able to deal with my old dealer and they hooked me up. I hope that you can get them down a bit, if you are really looking..

I am still looking. I am talking to the dealer now, but since I am in VA and they are in MO and I wont be there for a few weeks the process is very slow on trade in value plus deal I am going to offer them.

I check cars.com all the time for G8 GT's under 25K. There are usually 50 +/- nationwide listed at any given time.

Wow, glad to see values holding, that's more than I paid new by $800. Is it certified? Sport and Premium Packages?

Certified and Premium Package as advertised. I wont be able to actually check it out for a week or so, but I am very interested in it. They will give me 22.5k for my V6 and they might bring it down to 27kish. I'll have to see when I go up there.

If it's a mint condition fully loaded 2009 G8 GT in a rare color @ 11,000 highway miles, I suppose you could get away with 29k.

But if it's a premium non sport no sunroof in black? For 11,000 miles? You should be around 24,000-25,000.

I saw it advertised and it sounded like the one you were describing in MO. That's actually where I bought mine from too. Who did you talk to at Butler? I have a buddy that sells cars there and he might be able to hook you up with a little better deal.

Well I've talked to Kelly Schneider so far. She is the "Internet Sales Manager" or some title like that. Since I found it online and asked for info she is the one who contacted me.

When you go ask for Tim and see if he can knock a little more off for you.
