I picked up a '07 GTP sedan with bad timing chains and no power steering when it warmed up for $2k. 138,000 miles.
Owner didn't want to pay the $2k bill the dealer wanted to repair the timing chains and obviously trade in value sucked because of check engine light and cam timing code.
Car is in immaculate shape. I have an Auto Tech hobby (former career as an Auto and Diesel Tech) so blew the car apart in my garage for 3 months. I completely went through it replacing the timing chains, chain tensioners, W/P, belt, pulleys, P/S pump, struts, shocks, brakes, rotors, rebuilt the calipers, tires, sway bar links etc, etc, etc.
Basically refurbished entire car. I have stuck about $2k back into it. But I must say this is a fun and powerful little car to cruise around in. I make lots of out of state trips and was looking for a good daily driver and this girl fits the bill perfect. Too bad they had a short run and Pontiac got flushed. They are awesome little cars, especially with all the boxes checked like this one was spec'd.
