Thinking of buying 2006 GTP

Hello -
I'm in the process of buying a 2006 GTP. It has the panoramic sun roof and most of the upgrades including the monsoon sound system. It's under warranty - GM certified and has about 35,000 miles. Dealer is asking 13,500. I've been browsing this site and have found a lot of helpful info - especially regarding the panoramic sun roof. One question, does anyone know why they stopped making it? Any other info regarding this model would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking of picking it up this weekend. Also - the color is crimson red and it's a 4 door.
Thanks!

That pano roof is awesome but chaulk full of trouble. BEWARE!!!!

They stopped making it cause they couldnt afford all the warranty work that went along with it for 36,ooo miles.

Cost ratio was in the red....

Thanks for all your responses. I'm not on any other forums except a scrapbooking one...LOL. The car is in Minnesota. I'm a little concerned about the roof also. Do you think the dealership would certify a 2006 if there were any current issues with the roof? I guess the warranty is only for 12 more months. Thanks again for all your replies!

GM cerification is not a bumper to bumper warranty.
Thats is just your drivetrain.

I ordered the pano on my car but the guy checked off the wrong roof and I got the standard sunroof. When I complained about it they said it was a $1200 additional option
so I didnt yell too much. Besides...when it cam in it was so freeking pretty I couldnt turn it down.

Anyway.....I still wish I had one, squeek/leak or no I think they are awesome looking.

Course I open my roof just about every chance I get.

Thanks Lampoon. This warranty includes 12 months/12,000 miles bumper to bumper. We're going to go ahead and get it...I'll let you guys know how it turns out. I really want the panoramic...I've looked at a couple 2008's that are cheaper...just not the same.

Hi Lampoon -
4 spoke. Funny you asked, because now there's a silver one that's got the same options available. This one has 3 spokes. What's the difference?

Wonder why? It shouldn't make a difference, should it? We were going to get the car yesterday, but I decided to look around a little bit more. There's only 2 certified sedans in the area that I can find - within 100 miles, that is. Thanks for all your comments, you've been very helpful.
