Hi Guys. F/u on my last post re hunting for a c6. I have found a 2008 listed for sale for $23,995.00 at a motorsport shop. It is a cdn car, clean carfax, base model (6 spd), and is in vg shape. The kicker is that it has 179k on it. Although I would like to get into an 08 (LS3, wider body etc.,) I am wondering with this mileage what pitfalls can I expect with this. Or am I better off to continue the search to find an earlier model 05/06 with much lower mileage for probably the same price.
As always your very helpful thoughts and comments would be appreciated.
Ron

There should be many C6's out there with much lower mileages. This one is probably fine and the price is good but for me I'd wait for a lower mileage car.
If they aren't out there yet they sure will be come spring.

Good luck Ron with the hunt,
Colin
 
I have an 08 vert for sale 6m pretty nice car with 51,000 miles $30,000 usd and no one is betting down my door with a fist full of money .Yes it's seen rain and driven in one hell of a snow storm :D

The high mileage is a factory but It depends on how the mileage was put on the car.The Corvette is designed to last
 
Too many miles for my liking too. I'll sell you mine in the spring if you're interested in a quick supercharger A6 08. :D

A 2008 has the same body as a every year base model. Just don't want you to think its wider and be disappointed.
 
Tks again everyone for the feedback. Based on everyone's comments and suggestions I will stay in the hunt for a lower mileage car. With a 180k on the clock I was concerned what I would run into wrt replacement parts/repairs etc.
 
Ron, the car may in fact be just fine and would make a great ride for someone but I think you are making the right decision. Best of luck with your search.
 
Lots of cars out there Ron, don't be in to big a hurry...your car will find you when you least aspect it.
 
My father's car is for sale. 2008 Z51 w/14,500 kms. Will post in the for sale section shortly.
 
Thanks very much Colin. I hope it goes to a Corvette enthusiast who will use it as The General intended.
