Default 47k miles Bonneville GXP $5200 salavage title

Interesting find on San Diego Craigslist. Salvage title, seller claims repair on right door poorly done.

47k miles, $5200. Likely more to the story. But a neat find:

Salvaged title means, it was delivered to the junkyard first, then he picked it up and ended up not dealing with the Shitstar engine issue. He'* trying to pawn it off on to some other hapless person. I'll repost the whole ad so it doesn't disappear...

I ran a Carfax on the VIN, 1 owners, Cali car. CarFax shows 70k miles, seller states 47k. Seller said obtained the car via a debt. States the gas gauge doesn't work and the paint on the repair on the right side is peeling.

Either a complete scam or a very good deal, assuming the repair was done properly less paint issue. I am going to pass- but did peak my interest at 47k miles. As 70k miles and 9 years old, the head gasket is likely a very soon to come issue if not already.

So now its odometer fraud. I would send Carfax the CL ad. Probably a cluster swap to hide something else.

Mike, LOL, repost the same ad on CL and copy over all the Carfax data exploiting the mileage difference.
