Advice for buying a G6 gxp

Hey guys! So I'm finally in the market for a new car and the g6 is right in my price range. My first ever car was a Grand Am GT, but unfortunately it ended up being a lemon and I only had it for about two years.. so of course this is why I'm looking at G6's.

For some questions, next week I'm going to go test drive some cars. Is there anything I should look for when I'm test driving a gxp? I've already read up about the steering clunk issue (does that issue still apply to the 2008 gxp's? do they have the painted shaft?) so I'll see if I hear anything. And let's say I end up buying a GXP, I read the news about the recall and I'm wondering if that applies to this car aswell.

That's all I got for now. I'm also interested in Scion TC's and Hyundai Tibs, but the G6 is the most appealing to me. Any advice appreciated!

The GXP's have hydraulic steering so they are not effected by the recent recall for G6's with electric steering.
