Idk if I would pay that much for a used G8 unless it was a GXP, heck I paid $26K for my car brand new in 09'.

IMO 26k is way too high. A friend of mine got his 09 msm gt with 7k miles for 21k back in Feb of this year. It came with kooks headers, corsa exhaust, roto-fab intake, tune & polished camaro 20's.

Guys, we're talking about a 4k mile car here, not your 30k+ mile car. A loaded 4k mile GT should bring good money. Depending on the condition of the car it may very well be worth the asking price. If you look you can find GXPs sub 30k, but they have miles. A GXP with 4k miles will easily bring more than 30k.

If you were lucky enough to "buy a new GT for 26k," I'll bet you're not telling the entire story, ie: options, mileage, damage, etc. Or maybe you're one of the few good negotiators. Whatever the case, the one thing you CAN'T change (legally) about a car is the mileage. Spending a few extra bucks for a nearly new car is not a bad move if its what you want..!

Appearently you didn't read my post. If you're gonna spend 26k for a GT then why not spend a lil more and get a GXP for around 30k? It just doesn't make sense to me to spend that much on a GT. But I've always been known to overthink things.

That's either bull or there was a reason the car was so cheap. Op if u want the car it's worth it. I myself paid 27,900$ for a 4k mile sbm last June and have no regrets.

I'd be weary of a non contributing member trying to market his car via the pm system. Sure, one could postulate that he probably doesn't post here just like he doesn't drive the car ever. But with no history and blatantly trying to circumvent the for sale section rules... Hard to determine if it is legit. Caviat emptor

I bought my gt brand new factory fresh for $20k so I think this 'deal' is terrible, but for someone who might garage queen this car for another 5+ years and maybe 2k miles more, maybe the 'virginity factor' has some merit.

I bought my car (G8 GT w/ sport package) brand new in Spet of 09' with all the rebates and incentives at the time I got the car for $26K.....there is no hidden story. No sales tax with registering it in AK either.

Anyways I'm just giving my opinion like the OP wanted, and that is all I did.

You got a great deal, no doubt. I'd be willing to bet that part of the reason you got it cheap was because they were nearing winter (at the end of the model year) and rwd cars probably don't sell well in the winter up there, so they cut you a great deal and unloaded it.

The majority paid more than that when buying new, though. I paid 29k when I bought my first one in July of '09. I did my fair share of research back then and anything south of 30k was hard to come by.

Never said I got a great deal, just that I've never regretted it. Clam down with the referral of old threads that doesn't have any info on the car your speaking of. On topic.. Op take a look at the other g8s currently for sale online. Any one who thinks 26,000$ is unreasonable for a like new gt hasn't tried to purchase a g8 lately

Had nothing to do with Winter, Pontiac was closing shop and offered huge rebates at the end. I've heard a lot of similar stories.

Agreed: March 2009 was where it was at! The more expensive 2009.5 cars with Bluetooth were already on dealership lots and I didn't want leather. My 2009.1 car was a v8 base model that apparently no one wanted, FTW! My 30k-even car went to 20k when I applied my 7k instant rebate, negotiated that I needed factory Bluetooth (worth another 1k), existing gm loyalty bonus (500), and 'old dealer stock discount' (was on a lot 200 miles away for 11 months, dealer needed churn) for another 1k, and my ultimatum was if my salesman bumped my 20.5k invoice to an even 20k, that I would sign the paperwork. Best deal of the year for me, or at least I'd like to believe so. In my eyes, 'MOAR MOD MONEY' that I feel I made good on.

Then, 5k down, and 5k for my Pontiac trade in, and my loan was only 10k.

Maybe I just got lucky that my final day of negotiation with the salesman was "actually" the day Pontiac announced they were dead.

Sold my 09 GT with 45k miles for almost 24k 4 months ago. No mods. I think 26k is good for 4k miles

Is the car nearby and can you look at it? ride it?... see maintenance records if they even have any with that little miles?.... did car sit for a really long time with same full tank of gas?.... did they spread out 4000 miles over the years or did they drive 4000 miles and store for the last three yrs without driving?... I would find out those questions. (if they stored it for three yrs without driving I have had gas nightmares from that crap before..)
why did they not drive? older couple?....

seems high to me since I paid less than that for mine new.... (gm discount helped.. but many guys bought their car cheap especially when pontiac was on the way out,..)...

also depends on how bad you want it and how many other good deals you have found...... only u will know if it feels right or not.... good luck in your decision....

but I would till him $25000 and walk away... he may call u back later....
