Hi there,

I've been interested in buying an 09 G8 GT; but I've been kind of hesitant because I want to gain more information about common issues to expect/things to look out for throughout my car-hunt.

I currently drive a lifted 06 Jeep Wrangler as my daily driver so obviously a G8 is a nice change of pace and I'm really looking forward to purchasing one.

I've been planning on buying one with under 70,000 miles or so because chances are crucial parts may not need to be replaced as soon (hopefully, right?).

That was more of the kind of info I'm looking for, is certain signs to look out for, such as:
"It's very common for ________ to go around 80k miles"
"Make sure you bring it to a mechanic and have him get a good look at the _________".
The reason being this will be my daily driver, I live in Western New York so rust/salt is an issue. I'm hoping to hear the G8 is a reliable vehicle.
I'm mechanically inclined so I plan on taking good care of it.

The more information you're willing to provide, the better.

Thank you!

Ball joints go, but are covered under a TSB.
Also just had a sway bar end link go out at 60k miles. Most irritating rattle ever.
