Question SB GXP For Sale in Colorado, Originally From Laramie, Wyoming

I am very close to buying a SB GXP from a dealer in Brighton, Colorado, VIN number 6G2EP57W49L321020. Anyone know whose GXP this was, and can provide any details about it? So far the reports I've run on the VIN come back clean. However, the dealer did provide me a warranty claim report, and the vehicle was into the dealer several times (clutch plate replacement, oxygen sensor, lower control arm, hood latch, front seat adjuster switch). Thanks!

The lower control arm is a VERY common issue on the G8, as was the hood latch.

Then it's good to know that those issues have already been dealt with. I had a problem with a lower control arm for my GT-R, and it took bringing the vehicle to three separate places for troubleshooting, before somebody figured out what was wrong. Prior to that, the Nissan GT-R Techs couldn't get the vehicle back into alignment.

I already spoke to Tweaky about the vehicle. I also withdrew my interest in the vehicle.

I was in the GXP section after posting this & saw your post to back out. Good luck with the hunt....I wish I could afford the Wagon - That would be a fun car to own.

The Vagon is a cool car. It's a CTS-V, but to the casual observer, it's just another station wagon. Until you light 'em up!

Grogg,
Are you able to post any details about the vehicle that the dealer wouldn't share?
