Seems like a good deal. But forget all those extras no one really cares.

Just FYI, my buddy picked up a yellow 08 with 13K miles for $5000. All stock. Checked the vin with our cop budy, it was legit not stolen.

Great deals are out there. Keep looking.

All he'd need to do is ask the seller if it burned oil, and if so, was it fixed.

***I just discovered that the oil burning/defective piston rings issue was NOT issued a factory recall or repair. I know there was a class action suit filed, but I can't find out if it was settled or not***

Congrats! I'd have bought it, too since it has the warranty.

1 Do you want a motor that was torn down by Joe Smo?
2 No factory recall
3 Don't be naive by "asking" seller anything
4 Buyer Beware
5 Stay away from '08s
