KKB value for that GA is 3500-3900. Those guys are on something. And while the N-bodies can take high mileage, you need to know how well it was maintained, 160K? I'd be leary of it...

Damn, you could probably find an 05 or 06 g6 for that kind of money. I only payed 10k for my 07 with 48k miles a year ago.

Yea as Chris said that's definitely a lot and I'd really watch the higher mileage cars

The same thing happened when GM killed Oldsmobile. People, especially dealerships, jacked up their prices in an attempt "to get 'em before they're gone!!" If you like the car, go in and offer what the value is. The worst the dealer can say is no. Then you walk away and keep looking. I bet you get a call in a few days asking if you still want it, at your price.

You can get a better deal than that.... typical stealership overpricing the heck out of cars that were traded in for next to nothing!!!.... :lol2:

113k and 160k, that is a lot of miles for a 2002, my '86 came with 126k. More miles will keep the price down, but a 2002 should only have about 95-100k average on them. Think about 12k a year.
