I'm looking into buying my first Malibu and while it wasn't what I went in to buy, I've fallen in love.
It's s 2008 with only 38,000 miles for $12500. Is this a good deal? I know that low mileage is a plus and that it seems to be in amazing condition. And from the research I've done, they seem to be pretty good in the snow, right? I live where it snows a lot and i'm trading my dying 4 wheel drive in so being without it is kinda freaking me out.
This is the picture from the dealership. Thoughts?
What model is it, LT, LS, LTZ? V6, or 4 Cyl? That affects the pricing.
Last May, around Memorial day, I walked out with a BRAND NEW 2012 LT1 4 cyl for $18,200 after incentives and dealer discount. I had a GM card w/ $1800 of earnings on it, so my out of pocket was $16,500. Granted, got a heck of a deal, but I bet there are some 12's still out there, if you look real hard and are willing to travel to go get it. The 2013's are not moving well, you might end up w/ a heck of a deal on one of those if you look and negotiate.
I understand why you love it, I love mine too...esp for the $$ I paid.
I actually think you can do better than $12,500. But, we need more info, what are the options on there?
Tires make all the difference in the snow...at 38,000, if it has the stock tires still, put some good new ones on, and not the stuff that was stock, those are not good in the snow.
