Thats a very good bargain for the car and its nice looking but black and white cars always get dirty real quick,(I have a white gp) thats why I wash mine once a week and wax it once a month.

nope it had the 3.1L but that son of a gun had over 170K on it and the only things i ever did to it was a new EGR valve and a new water pump...not bad considering i paid 5000 for it at 118K and got 3800 for the trade in at 170K...i basically robbed that car dealership lol..especially since they really only wanted to give me 1900 for the trade...

Thats real good, (good bargain 101)(lol)but tell me when the egr valve and water pump went out what was the symptoms or how the car was acting so when it comes a time to replace a water pump or egr valve, I will know.

when the EGR went out i had no clue until my check engine light (AKA THE DEVIL)came on. But the water pump..my temp gauge started acting real funny...moving up and down quite a bit...plus u could see the radiator fluid starting to leak a lil...one thing i have noticed is that past 100K the 3.1's "drink" alot more fluids than the 3.8's do ...example: oil, radiator, trans...etc... but the are still very very dependable overall.....

how did you get the dealership to drop 3k off the new car and add almost 2k to your trade?

Sounds like you got a great deal. Do the '05 have the supercharger, or was that added to the GT's in '06??

I really want the new GXP for my wife and I's family car, since they have 4 doors, and my GTP only has 2. We'll see, that is about 2yrs. down the road yet though. (hopefully) devilwink

Yes they did have it but in for the 2004 year you had the base model, GT, GTP. For 2005 you had base model, GT, GTP, GXP. Then for 2006 they drop the GTP model and replaced it with the GT because of the GXP model so now its base model, GT, and GXP.
