I found a dealer in TN. I live in Ga., I am thinking of driving up there this weekend, but I don't know weather to believe the ads or not. It's on Importautoconnection.com, they have about three of them for sale. I am interested in the black on for 9000.

SO, your talking about This one. Not much information on it. What's the mileage?

Hahah, according to the posting it's "1"...:lol:

Let's see....

1st: It has aftermarket rims and a third party navigation unit (which I suspect someone wouldn't put on a vehicle unless they plan on driving it MORE THAN 1 mile

2nd: Even a majority of brand new vehicles have more than a 1 mile on them by the time they hit a lot.

3rd: If you look at the cargo area, there's obviously evidence of usage (scuffs and scratches on the tailgate.

Obviously there is a bit of misinformation with the ad to begin with. If you are really serious about looking at it, I'd say run the VIN through Carfax first to see any and all of its history. If it checks out to your liking, visit the seller and test drive.

I second a CARFAX check. Suggest doing a Better Business Bureau check on the dealership for any signs of fraud as well. I drove 600 miles RT to get mine, and it was new, so, don't be apprehensive to drive to get one, just make sure you've done your homework ahead of time. :roll:8)

Good Luck!! :razz::razz:

I agree with you on the floods. I originally saw the post for it on craigslist, it said it had 53k miles on it or so. I will probably pass on it for now. Definitely going to do a check on any vehicles.
