Worth the $29k ?

Lowest miles I've ever seen but is it worth the $$$ ?
Looks to have all packages plus sunroof but V6 wheels. Also has aftermarket steering wheel.
Wow, I wish this would drop a couple thousand

Anybody on here know this car?

Are you going to park it in the garage for an investment? If not, then I wouldn't be paying that type of premium for an ultra low miler. At $29k, I'd be willing to take 10-20k more miles, pay $4,000 more for a GXP

Who buys a g8, then let's it collect dust in a garage for 3 or 4 years then trades it in at a Toyota dealership? I don't get it. Maybe the mileage is a typo?

There's a free carfax and the mileage seems to be legit.

Yea, if the mileage was a typo, I sure hope the price was also.

I agree with Jeff92, pay a couple more thousand and get a M6 GXP or buy a heavily modified GT on here for same price and a little more mileage.

Just couldn't believe the mileage, condition, options and proximity to my house, only 5 miles away!

Why the premium price!

Looks like it is also listed on Ebay. It has 6 days to go and hasn't met reserve yet but you might be able to get it for a little or a lot less.

I'm sure they are punching in the KBB values and the ultra low miles is what is inflating the price. I'd sit on it. I don't think anyone is going to buy it at that price.

No good. I paid that much for mine brand new 3 years ago. With the 19" wheels. I'd offer them $25775 and see what they say.

Something seems... Off. The wheels, steering wheel, absurd mileage...

Aren't there some states that don't require you to report salvage/totalled cars? I'm wondering if this was something like it... re-built and then sold in another state.

The Wheelskins cover is high quality. I think it was my first mod almost 3 yrs ago. Still looks brand new. I got it for $65, just to save the steering wheel from getting abused.

GM was blowing these cars out for $26,500 three years ago so what would justify a car three years older and more mileage to be worth more? A classic it is not...

I totally love my G8 and plan on driving it to the ground. But I'm also a realist and understand these cars are desirable to not that many people. Mostly because people don't know what these cars are.

I saw the same cycle with the GTO's. Prices remained solid for a while then started dropping fast. Even on low mileage garage queens. I expect the G8 to hold it's great resale value for a 1 year or 2...then slide down...

Sadly, I agree. I paid $23K for mine brand new, so it's hard to justify.
