    17 seems a little high for that car with those miles. I bought mine for 15.9K with 46K on the clock. But I do like that color!

    I also found a 02 with 33K on the clock and I am 95% positive they would have took 17K for the car. That was in Indy.

    check out LS1tech.com and look at the cars for sale there...not being rude...but there are lots of cars w/ mods and some bone stock for the money you are looking to spend..

    Buy a car that has some basic mods done to it. I bought mine for 15,500 with 60,000 miles. The car came with a shit load of mods, see sig. I probably over paid by 2 grand for the year, but around here.... all these cars are at dealerships. They mark the price up to 17 grand on all of them! I think I got a OK deal. I do need a tune this week and tie rod ends!

    If there is something about the car... then buy it, but I bet if you look around, you can find a better deal. This car is NOT a horrible deal ether though!

    That place is always high as far as the prices go. I looked at a car there a few years ago, it was priced way too high.

    I also haven't heard great things about them either.

    I'd look for one from a private party, you're more likely to get a better deal.

    i really love the car and i don't mind overpaying a bit if its the car i want. im worried about the miles on it, if it had 30-50,000 i would have bought it two weeks ago. SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT MILEAGE?

    I got mine from a dealer April 2007 with 30,500 miles on it and I walked away with it for $13,900 and it blue booked for $13,300 at that time.

    They wanted $15,900 but, we talked about it and they gave me a $2000.00 retired military price. Those guys were awesome. Somebody got hosed on that car once but, it wasn't the dealership and it wasn't me.

    I'll never sell her either.

    Bought mine for 18,000 in 2004 with 60,xxx on her. Now I have 135,xxx and really no major problems... Don't be afraid of milage. These are good cars if maintained with care.

    Yeah, I guess for a 2002, the price is right. I'd buy it. Just let the blue book be your guide. Also, check out Carfax. A $20 account for 30 days is a good investment. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    yeah im done with this one, the dealer is a jerk and raised the price from one day to the next. Theres a scuff in the back now that would need to be fixed because someone hit it on the lot, also theres burnt rubber 1/2 an inch thick in the back around the tires, looking at some other options now

    I've been looking for about 4 months so i've done the research haha. I found a 99 trans am for sale with only 27k miles on it. The guy is askin 11,000 but im payin cash so i think can get it for around 9, would this be a good deal? its bone stock and i plan to do mods on it, also i've looked at a 2000 trans am with 67k miles that already has slotted/drilled rotors, exhaust and more this one would be 11,500. I think its going to be one or the other so i'd like some feedback
