New member from michigan!

Hello all! My name is Cody and I am from michigan! I am going saturday to look at and hopefully buy a 2005 pontiac g6 4 door. It has 47,000 on it for 8,000 dollars. Is this a good deal if it checks out ok with my mechanic? What are some things I should look out for on these cars? Thanks guys!!!

I will say that the milage is pretty low, I hit 47,000 today in my '07. I havnt had any problems with my car and really wouldnt trade it for shit...(except a G8)..anyways I looked up the blue book value:

I'd ask to see the carfax... this says 10 records found:

I find that the G6 is a dependable car. Remember if you go tinkering with it you take a chance of messing up something that other wise would have been find for years. Let your mechanic say if its worth the money. All cars have problems sometimes, just look at how everyone worshiped the Camery, now its been recalled for a huge safety issue.

If you buy it, Welcome to the site!

I am keeping it over night to testdrive it! As of right now I freaking love it!!!!! I am going to take it to my grandpas(mechanic) and put it on the hoist and check everything out before I do but If that and the carfax checks out alright it will be mine! The vin number says it has 10 reports on the carfax could this be warranty work? I hope the steering colum was replaced!
