Make sure the cam covers aren't leaking. Its a DOHC motor. Ask if the cam belts have been changed- age may get to them.

well went to look over that 09 V6 G8
felt strong for a V6 no rattles engine sounds good

will need brakes but that's about it

I think its a deal at 10,000 CAN with only 42000 miles on it

That sounds like a great deal to me. Yes these V6's are pretty strong. Does it have leather seats and the radio like in your GT?

That's good that it has the same radio/HVAC system as the GT. If it had the base model radio/HVAC system the remote start doesn't turn the heat/AC on. I'd bring her home.
