That'* not really low miles. It'* about average for the age.

Their HP listing is incorrect. It'* actually 225hp.

Make sure the ride control indicators aren't both lit at the same time. If they are, use that as a bargaining point.

Keep in mind I'm not too far from you. Schedule permitting, I could be available to scan the car for you.

It seems like a lot of car for the money, Looks like it has all the SSEI options, decent wheels too.

Whats up with the ride control indicators? I have a Grand Prix I have been driving for years, and I am not familiar with the problems of these cars yet.

This car has been driven an average of 8,750 per year for 12 years. Thats not too bad considering is damn near double that today!

CCR struts. Computer Command Ride. Driver-selectable between touring (soft) and Performance (firmer) handling. Electronic struts that can change damping rates.

When the CCR controller detects a fault in the system, it turns BOTH the touring and performance indicator lights on. These are just to the left of the shifter with the traction/performance shift buttons.

CCR struts are VERY expensive to replace, but it'* no big deal, we just have most people replace with conventional struts. This is a GOOD bargaining point though, if the CCR system has a fault.
