Also, What is the prospect of additional cars being imported over the next 6 mohts with the demise of Pontiac?

Any other recommendations while looking for this car?
Very easy: the vin. If the last 6 digits of the vin start with a 3 (i.e. 3xxxxx), then and only then is it a 2009.5. Otherwise 2009 vins have a 1 or a 2. So the changes above or simply look at the vin, and you'll know.
