    Opinions Wanted Please

    Im seriously thinking of making an offer on this car, what do you guys think? Does the price seem a little high considering the mileage?

    Not bad

    I like it a lot even though I'm not thrilled with 50,000 miles. It's not bad by any stretch but...
    I like the fact that the previous owner wasn't cheap and put on the best Goodyear tires. That probably indicates that he didn't take shortcuts with the car in regards to expenses. That's a good clue in my opinion. I guess the most important thing would be to know a little about the prior owner. Were those 50,000 miles all city short distance drives or is a good portion of that 50K from highway commutes to work or whatever. The price seems OK and I'm sure you could haggle down into the mid 18's. It sure looks clean. Keep us posted. Good luck!

    It seems a little high for the mileage but not terrible. You can probably work them down to 17 or 18K to make it more worth it. The car does look good though.

    Did you guys find that you had to talk down these deals quite a bit? Everybody seems to be selling these cars at a very high price but I know for a fact that nobody is buying. Its hard to buy a car for 25k when the blue book value is only 16k

    Before I bought my 97 I used to look around that area in autotrader all the time . I bet you can find a better bargain, esp if you dont mind going out to like a 200mile range.

    50k miles for a 2001 is actually pretty good. I have the same miles & same car and my average is 10-12 k per year. As for the price I think you can go $17-$18K, the eradispeeds on all 4 corners are worth $1k... just my .02

    Too much spread

    No way do you pay $9,000 more, but if you pay $1000-$3000 over on a special car that you just love with LOW miles, go for it. There really are not too many F-bodies any more over $25,000 except the 2002 CE's or WS6's with basically miniscule miles.
    AND, as posted above, travel a bit to find that car you really want. It will be the best trip you ever took.
