You might want to to cast a wider net and go nationwide.Sorry, they are in NY (Yonkers). I am in PA.
The price is steep, but we are talking about the NYC market so I am not surprised.So, Dan Martin has a 2009 9-5 wagon (snow silver) with 50K for $12,500. It appears to be in pristine shape.
Arghh.. I only got $7,300 for my 2007 9-5 wagon.
I would really like an AERO, Manual Transmission or Griffen, but this one looks fantastic. Thoughts?
2009 9-5s are rare, Griffin editions even more so. I've seen one auto Griffin wagon for sale in Toronto, and it went in a day. I saw another Griffin wagon whose owner said it was manual, and that it took him a long time to find it.
On the other hand, I'd be careful about paying premium prices for a car that may have been exposed to a lot of road salt.
On the third hand, paying a lot for a 'pristine' 10 year old car may not make sense unless it was truly rustfree and the interior is mint. Unless the service history is also super-extensive, you will be doing mechanical work on it sooner or later anyway.
I usually compromise for a good deal. You're giving up your v6 and manual here, and paying a premium if they don't negotiate. Could always call em up and lowball em. Maybe they want it off the lot, never know.
Just did a local search in my area (Toronto), with the exception of the 50K low mileage, I would think somewhere around $8k would be fair. It is still an old car that will need work.
