A really good friend of mine has been wanting to swap rides for a while now. He's had a decent deal on a 13,000 mile 08 GT 500 fall in his lap.

1.)What are the things to watch out for on these cars?

2.) Anyone have personal experience with fuel mileage (I know its a gt500... my buddy wants to know)

3.) What do you all think is a decent price on these?

4.) Any other facts that he may need to know.

You forgot to mention their tanks are like 13-15gals. I can't remember but they are stupid small.

Funny I've been looking up prices on these this morning. Seems 07s are asking low 30s but getting closer to high 28-29s. 08s are slighty higher but with patience I think an 08 can be had for $30k. It's still a buyers market so for those prices you can find slightly modified as well.

Look here for more "comparable" pricing:

Also check autotrader.

Price wise I would guess around the low 30s. MPG I've heard anywhere from 13-25 depending, but combined about 15.

Guy that used to work here killed a clutch before 30K. Not sure if it was driver or car.

Decent cars, very reliable, mileage will be 16ish in town stock, they don't handle all that well, the interior is cheap and rattly as they age.

Who buys a car of that caliber and worries about mileage? Confused
