That'* what I was thinking. Even with a working CD player the price seems high. They probably only have $2,000 into it since it most likely came from the auction.

Work them over. Hard.

was a trade in...the one guy who works at the dealership sold it to his friends when he worked at a diff. dealership...
They all try to paint a rosy picture like that. There are only so many "executive," "grandma/grandpa," and "little old lady only drove this car to church on sunday" cars.

Be careful.

The other one (the SLE) seems high priced to me too. Consider...I paid $10,900 for my 99 in March, 02 with only 30K miles on it from Jim Martin in Saginaw.

Negotiate hard with those guys. It'* a buyers market. The market is flooded with used cars because of the big leasing boom and sales incentives shortly after 9/11.

haha wanna hear the "supercharger" story......

Someone told my mom (who thinks she knows everything about cars) that the Superchargers on all Grand Prix'* and Bonnevilles go bad at 75K....so now she is all hell bent on not letting me get a supercharged car...I told her how bogus that sounded and she went off on me about how it was $3500 to fix and it was gonna be all my bill and bla bla bla........only reason she is on this kick is becuz some guy my dad works with has a gtp and his supercharger went bad...(only one I've EVER heard of) but yea.....pretty gay......

and the trade in goes....I owe $6800 on my X....I can't really find a car for a lot less than what I'm looking at becuz dealers dont wanna talk to me....I found a 40th SSE downstate they watned $4500 for...called on it...dealer basically told me to go somewhere else and hung up..... :(

superchargers dont go bad, they outlast the rest of the car, and they are the strongest part of the drive train. the Bearings or the coupler goes bad, and that is like a $30 fix

obvisously her mom is basing all her information off that one guys bad supercharger, so in that fact, they CAN go bad...

it would take her a LOT of reading to verify the correct facts, and im sure she doesnt want to do that....

whole lot easier just to get an NA.....but then thats no fun

That price is too high. I only paid $5200 for my fully loaded supercharged LSS with 107K on it. I agree with everyone else, knock down the price.
