Possible trade?
 
Hey everyone, im looking to get a new car and kinda want some AWD. I want it to be tuneable and to be alot quicker than my current car.

Just wanted to know how reliable they are, how many miles before they start breaking down and if they are a lot tuneable than a pontiac g6!

Much better sale but are all legacys AWD or 4wd?

Personal opinion, the car you are looking at is alittle over priced 6,900 would be better IMO. Also very reliable depending on previous owners and if the timing belt has been done already which for that price is damn well better be. Also tuneable, 100%, more tuneable then your G6, I would have to say hands down yes, but the only G6 I would ever own needs a pilot:cool:

Haha yeah, i didn't even choose this car came home from school and bam had a g6 lol. I found this one that is newer but looks to be base model. just might get this one..

They are AWD, I would say stay with a GT, you will actually be down grading in power and torque by going with a base model compared to your G6.

$16k for a 2006 2.5i? What are they smoking? I don't care how low the mileage is, that's just crazy talk.

Yeah that seemed a bit crazy. Im going tomorrow to get an appraisal and to test drive it. I can't even find any GT's other than the one with 110k miles. Ill still keep looking around i guess. Parents put a limit so i gotta find one under 50k lol

I have an '05 wagon for sale...71k miles. If you don't think wagons are cool yet, you will soon :)

You're local too, definitely willing to negotiate if you are serious.

BarManBean 01-18-2013 12:06 AM

If you want to boost, do not get a 2.5i. There is a somewhat expensive kit that lets you do around 7psi on a 2.5i. Stock on an LGT is 13.5, and it's easy to crank an LGT up to 18+ with a couple of exhaust mods.

wtf this guy wants 12,300...

thefultonhow 01-23-2013 09:18 AM

I think $10500 or $11000 is probably a reasonable price for that car, given the miles and maintenance. He probably priced it higher to take into account CL lowballing. I bet if you offer $10000 you'll get him down to a reasonable price.
