Default who goin car shopping labor day sales!!!

well i am first thing in the morn... well in about 5 hrs... i dont get much sleep anymore due to all the meds im on. they counter act each other and well i just cant sleep but any ways. heres the deal..... im trading a 2004 tarus lx nothing special about it... it doesnt even have a cd player.. and 2k cash. im doing this for my mom btw.. she loves my grand prix because she loves the power it has. but i told her that she realy doesnt need to have a m90. the norm gt version will be just fine.. but she wants a 4 door so then i told her the bville would be right for her.. and she said well you know what to look for just go buy me a car. so.....

kbb book values
trade in: 6k
private party: 8k
Suggested Retail Value: 10500

so i figure with 6k trade.. shooting for 7 but car needs tire REALY bad in the front. and with 2 cash i should be able to swing something realy nice......


but theres a dealer with a 2000 bville sle for 9k a prix for 8 and they also have a trailblazer for 9k (she said something about a midsize suv) so ill take a look at them and check out a few other. but ill let you all know what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!! ill snap a few pics of the tarus and of the rides we are goin to look at... well my freind andy and i are goin to scope out the lots then about 1 or so im suposta get mom and let her know what we found.. but im off to bed.

Gosh, no one'* replied yet.

My advice is to get the Bonneville SLE or a Grand Prix GT and avoid the Trailblazer, the gas price will keep going higher and higher eventually so, my vote is a L36 powered ride.

ok well im home... didnt find shiot... everything was either way over priced or had a but ton of miles. did find a 99 ssei for like 7 (thinks to much) 02 gp gt 11k (way 2 much)
02 sle (100k miles) thats alota driving um a but load of monte carlos and impalas but only a few with the 3800 motor. and go figure over priced. 01 monte ss 11.8k was a nice car but a bit over priced. unless i wanted one with the 3.4 v6 then i found one for 6k but.............. i need a nap im tired and them dealers block off the ends of the lots so you sorta get stuck and have to back through alota shioot. its there way of traping you so the salesman can get to you in time.. there was a few of them where i had the salesman come to the window and knock so i just gve them a dirty look. hey if i find something im interestedin ill find you so gtfa (go away) but.......... anyone interested in an 04 taurus? only 33k on it!! and it has extended warrenty till 65k miles
