Talking Denton, Texas

I am picking up a 2008 G5 Pontiac this week. 15,800 miles. My 2009 Dodge RAM 1500 R/T pickup truck with 4:10 gears, and stall converter is eating my lunch in gas expense. I will park it and drive the G5 on a daily basis. The car was bought at RLB and came from an elderly man, estate sale.

Thanks! jw

welcome! that's exactly what my mom did! she has a super sexy ford sport track adrenaline, but parks it for the most part and she bought a 2009 g5 to drive daily. it is a good car and great on gas, you'll love it!

But the price of the car in the link is much too high IMO...I bought my 2009 cobalt BRAND NEW for $14k tax in, and it is...well was a base model lol.

Thanks to all. One of my buddies had a Cobalt for years and had no real trouble with it to speak of....I really wanted a Cruze ECO but for 21K I had to pass. The R/T RAM I wanted to keep so this is an easy out. This is a very low mile example. I am not even sure what total option package it has. Picking it up Friday. Bought a case of filters and a K&N drop in. I am setting the truck up for some amature drag racing.


Called GM Customer Service today, Power Steering TSB performed. All records are in the glove box from what I am told.

yep, but I got is for 12900.00 which is still over book. Dallas/Houston are 2 of the highest priced cities for used cars in the Nation. Certified examples of this year are bringing in 15-17k, lease returns mostly with 30,000 plus miles I believe 12,900 a good price for the low low miles and condition.
