Looking at a G8 this afternoon for my cousin in Scumberg. It's a base V6 (I know i know) with 52K miles. Anything that I should be looking for? Common problem areas? I know there are a few G8 guys on here that could help out a bit. Thanks in advance.

Look for the other 2 cylinders :s00ls: Hazer would be the one to ask about that, since he is the only v6 in the CHC

A V8. There is not much of a gas MPG gain between the V8 and going to a V6 one. So as long as long as they can afford it then I suggest you steer them towards the V8. Other than that the LCA's do go bad and are covered under a TSB too.

Yeah I have no idea what he can and can't afford, when I looked at the car online, I immediately called him up to make sure he knew it was a V6, so he must have some reasoning behind it, I just didn't get into it :dunno:
