    Test drove it today. Was pretty impressed, really liked the V8 power after owning a turbo 4 cylinder. Haggled with the dealer but they were fairly firm on price. :dunno:

    True, I have never been a fan of american cars, but this really doesn't drive like any american car I have ever experienced. I am just afraid once pontiac is officially gone under the value will fall through the floor.

    Sticker is 34090, they wouldn't go below 32000. I walked after haggling for an hour. Plus they offered me the usual shit trade in amount.

    I do hear G8's ride pretty nice but I would still be wary of buying anything that you know isn't going to be produced in a month or year.

    32k is steep.

    get a slightly used one for a lot less.

    Yea, theres no way I am going to pay anywhere near retail for a vehicle thats brand is no longer produced. We shall see what happens. The sales guy said he would keep trying to work out a better deal for me. But I don't need a new car, so unless I get a smoking deal I will have to pass.

    Your getting fucked. New ones here you can get at 29k, slightly used (2-4k miles are mid 20's)

    I'm thinking if I can get it for around 27.5k I would pull the trigger, if they give me a decent trade value that is.
