New for forum, old owner
So I have not posted before. We own a 2008 G6, bought it new for my daughter. She used it and now she has given it back to us, she moved to Brooklyn, they don’t need cars, (subways everywhere).
It got 42k on it. It the 4cyl base model sedan. We are considering doing some maintenance to it and keeping it. I like the ride better than my wife’s 2012 Elantra.
So question is what should be done. I’m considering changing all the fluids (trans, brake, coolant and diff, is this necessary?)
What about suspension, is it worth an investment in springs stock/struts and bushings?
Also the brakes (rotors and pads were replaced by dealer about two years ago), is it worth to upgrade to a better brake package? Again, it’s for the family car, not performance (I got the 2006 GTO for that).
Would love to hear from this group on what you think.
I also have some body work to do, need to replace the driver side front and back doors (a house jumped in front of the car when my daughter was backing out of her driveway one winter).
I like to car and would like to keep. What do you guys think/ I know its a lot to ask on a first post, but these are the things that I’m thinking about now related to the car.
Thanks again and I look forward to meeting all here.
