Need advice on possible purchase

Hi everyone,

Your input would be of value! Just reading this of the bat, does it sound like a good/fair deal?

Thanks!

Don't rush and look around. You might get lucky.
at 6k Km and for 4k + maybe good maybe not, I am not sure of your market but if you look around you might find one that make a better deal.

That price is rather high IMHO. I'd think closer to $4K not knowing some of the details like tire wear, how well serviced, etc.

X2.

I have been seeing new 09's on Ebay for $4999 less fees.

Asking price for an 09 new in CO is about 5,500 plus tax and fees. It can probably be OTD for under 6,000. Price looks about right based on NADA estimate. I have.not seem a new one under 5k west of the front range.

It's (Your V) is out there somewhere.

Try to get the best deal with the lowest price. This is leave you with cash for FARKLEs (there, I said it, again).

I thought we were supposed to support our local dealers??

As for the $5,500 deal, thats about what the 09's are going for in my area. Thats seems like a fair price to me. I would not travel too far for a deal that is $500 less, just my opinion. My time and effort to go get it is worth something. Also, if you have a good dealer and you need any warranty work, its always a little more friendly dealing with them if you buy from them.
